I have been to the Canyon River Grill many times while staying at the Lodge at Canyon River Ranch. The fried chicken is my favorite but other menu offerings are delicious as well. Nicely prepared.

The location is excellent, right on the river and very relaxing. The food was average, and the service was very slow. It wasn't busy so we were a bit surprised at the disorganization of the wait staff. Improvements could be made.

We have been to Canyon River Grille at least six times now and were loving it so much. However the last time we stopped for lunch probably four weeks ago we noticed that the quality of the service and the food has slipped. Then we found out that the chef had quit and there was a new one in place. Here's hoping he learns fast!

In June,with dear friends from U.S. Army Days, I had a restful lunch on the deck overlooking the Yakima River. Georgeous setting! I had a chicken sandwich and side salad with a glass of white wine. Quite good. As the Germans say,"Mittagessen war ausgezeichnet!" Lunch was excellent! I would come back here.

Atmosphere is fantastic. We sat outside on the deck overlooking the river, totally shielded from traffic noise.

Fast, friendly but not overbearing waitstaff.

We ordered & shared 2 different sandwiches, artichoke dip as an apitizer & individual dinner salads.

Apitizer was THE BEST we've ever had. We've tried artichoke dip across the country & this is the bomb.

Salads were fresh, generous & unique.

Both sandwiches were hearty, unique & completely delicious.

Great flavors with interesting pairings, fresh ingredients, hardy servings, decent prices, top notch service.

Highly recommend!
