My husband ordered the fish and chips, myself a salad, with the plan of sharing. Ha! Neither one of us wanted to share after we started eating our lunch. The very best
fish and chips are here at the Grill. I am a salad lover and ordered the Spring Harvest Salad which was absolutely delicious. Our server was excellent which made our lunch date even better.

Scenic drive, accessible from either Yakima or Ellensburg. Seating is more akin to a roadside cafe with a gift shop as the entrance, adjacent to lodging. Service was acceptable, but not excellent. Food was well prepared and tasty. The location is the primary draw, very scenic along the river making this a pleasant destination for a dinner date with good food. Since seating is limited, it would be wise to make reservation. We found making reservation difficult because no one at the restaurant was answering their phone. We called the adjacent fishing tackle store from which a runner was sent to the restaurant on our behalf.

Our daughter and her husband treated us to a belated birthday brunch during our family visit to Yakima and we chose to try the Canyon River Grill. It was a lovely Sunday morning and the view of the river from our window table was a treat. The service was cheerful and efficient and the food excellent. Great coffee, too, which important to us :)
