They were able to accommodate a family of ten for lunch with very short notice. The service was fast and the food was great. Made for a very enjoyable afternoon. Thanks

A "must-visit" restaurant in Salida. Great beer selection and some fun/unusual mixed drinks too. The food isn't fancy but it's darned good! And the views of the Arkansas River out of the roll-up garage doors is spectacular and restful. Excellent bar with big screens for...More

We had a great table on the deck overlooking the river.This was a mixed blessing as our server was overworked and couldn't get to us as often as she or we would have preferred. If I'm ever in Salida again I will definitely go back.

My husband and I stopped for dinner and loved the views and overall vibe of the place; fun and casual. We had the carnitas and chorizo tacos, and one of their specialty burgers. The tacos were the star of the two. We sat at the...More

Very popular place and it was crowded with family groups. Service was OK but it took a while to get our meal.

Very casual spot on river. Chicken burrito was OK. Beer selection very good. Service fine. Food came in less than 10 minutes. Lots of TVs.

Nice location on the river. Great time watching a late night broncos game even when the rest of the food places are closing at 8pm. Fantastic salsas. Great, attentive and efficient wait staff.

We went to this restaurant because it was right on the river. We requested a table with a view of the river which we received after an hour wait. A first available table was 45 minutes so 60 minutes was fair we though. The view...More

I'm so disappointed you didn't receive our usual experience. We take a lot of pride in our dishes, but it sounds like you caught us on an off day. I hope we get a chance to show you what we can do in the future!...More

Not sure for inside. We always like to get an inside table along the river. Give them a call as they may allow dogs on the patio outside.
