We ate at this outside grill after our river rafting trip. Everyone liked their food choice and the cheese and chicken quesadillas were amazing. Yum!

What a nice way to relax after a half day raft trip. Meals were great! I ordered a caprese salad and my husband had the pulled pork sandwich. Both were generous portions and delicious. We were able to order beer or wine along with soft drinks, tea and water.

Good food after a family rafting trip while sitting alongside the Arkansas River. A great way to end a fun raft trip.

Cool place to hang with some river guides. Friendly staff! Ask for Sarah and don't forget to tip. Elk brats and local beer. Great place to meet some guides and you can camp onsite as well.

The location was a little confusing, it's tucked behind River Runners next the the water. The people working here are really friendly and food was so good we came back for lunch the next day. I would highly recommend the carne asada burrito and the fish tacos!

I went back to the Riverside Grill when we visited Buena Vista for another rafting weekend. Sorry, we rafted with another company, but we came back for the food and drinks at the Grill. I was curious about the River Rummers, having tried their legendary margaritas already. The Rummers were okay. Boozy for sure but a bit too sweet for... More

Have incredible good and excellent service right on the river! The beer and margaritas are on point especially after an afternoon of river rafting. My daughter loved the view and the play area with toys for the kids. We will be returning soon!
