“Unexpectedly great food along the Yakima River!”
Review of Canyon River Grill

Canyon River Grill
Ranked #27 of 114 Restaurants in Ellensburg
Price range: US$7 - US$34
Cuisines: American
Description: Canyon River Grill - located in the center of the canyon, 12 miles south of Ellensburg, Wa or 14 miles north of Selah, Wa on Canyon Road (Highway 821). With the Yakima River in full view from our dinning room and heated *outdoor patio, you can enjoy all the sights and smells the Yakima Canyon has to offer. We serve everything from breakfast to dinner and everything in between. Have a meal with family, grab a glass of wine with a friend, or just have a snack from our quick "Grab-and-Go" selection while you take a walk outdoors. You can also grab a coffee for the road at our Espresso Stand. Either way we have you covered... *Patio is seasonal and usually open 9-10 months of year

We were staying at the Canyon River Ranch and had a delicious dinner one night at the grill. First class in food, wine and service.

First I would like to give the good.
The food was excellent, a bit pricy but excellent.
I am giving this place 2 stars because of the food. If it was only the service we received they would get ZERO stars!
We were offered nothing to drink, I found a water pitcher at the bar and filled up our glasses while our server watched me. Not once but twice! We were only given forks. I walked up to her and asked if we could have a steak knife. She said oh I guess I can go look for some in the back. As she stood there staring at me not moving. I said nevermind if you could at least give me a butter knife.... Not one time did anyone stop and ask if we needed anything.
I came with my adult daughters. The last time I saw them was Thanksgiving. Had hoped this would have been a lovely day for us. But we were completely ignored and felt like we had put them out.
I have never written a bad review and rairly complain, but this was the worst service I have received in my 48 years.
Put a damper in our day. :(

We loved their salad selections, good burgers and really good fries.
The drink menu selections are very unique and thirst quenching in the summer heat. We were really impressed with the creativeness of the Derek (bartender), who was crafting a new drink menu the first afternoon we stopped in. He knows what hes' doing and has a passion for concocting some of the best drinks I've had in ages!

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.
