Dining Reviews Check out what Our Guests have to say
I really loved my stay at this hotel. I had to extend a couple days for work and I was really happy about it. The Sweet Waters is the restaurant and bar. Even if you're not staying at the hotel you should come here. There are very nice tables in a quiet atmosphere and some big ol booths and tables. . Even the bar has big chairs to sit in. The steak is amazing! And my favorite bartender was Christian and he make the best Margarita I've ever had. Try it you'll definitely like it.
"Fabulous Easter Brunch"
We just took our 2 college kids out for a delightful Easter Brunch as Sweetwaters on the River. The buffet had so many choices and accommodated the meat lovers and vegetarians in the family. The desserts were also plentiful and very refined: cute little chocolate mouse cups, cake, cookies, and other delights. The service was excellent--we had CJ and Linda. They were gracious, friendly and very energetic.
"Superb food, helpful, friendly service"
My husband and I have eaten at Sweet Waters a number of times, and have brought family members. We love the food and the friendly service. We love sitting by the big windows with a great view of the river. Everything we've tried on the menu has been top notch! My favorite is the salmon salad. Wow!
"Great spot for Friday night drinks!"
We had an excellent evening just sharing appetizers and having some local wines and beers. Highly recommended for both in town and out of town folks. Unbeatable service staff and I just heard they are rolling out a new menu so I will be back!
"Great Food with a Beautiful View"
We always have at least one meal here when we come to stay @ Valley River Inn. The food is always great, whether it's breakfast, dinner, or dessert, the service is exceptional, and the atmosphere is cozy & beautiful. If it's a sunny day, you can watch the action going by on the river, and if it's cold & rainy, we love to sit by the fireplace in the bar with a cocktail!
"Well done to all the staff for their hard work over the holiday"
Went to dinner on Christmas eve with my family of 8. We had the privilege of being seated in what they call the "duck club" which is a fun private room overlooking the river. My husband would eat red meat for every meal if I let him, anyhow, he had the prime rib special of the evening and says its the best he's ever had! We also had risotto balls and brisket nachos as appetizers which our server recommended and were delicious. Well done to all the staff for their hard work over the holiday, we enjoyed ourselves very much!
"A very nice dinner for our family on a special occasion!"
We went to Sweetwaters for Christmas Eve dinner. We had a lovely table and could see the river even though it was dark. Food was good, service was prompt and friendly. My son is a vegetarian and he loved the Ravoili!
He said it was the best he had ever eaten and he is from LA!
A very nice dinner for our family on a special occasion!
"We plan to go back"
We plan to go back soon to share the wonderful experience with my sister. TheCobb Salad was delicious, beautifully prepared and presented, as well as plentiful and fresh. I will definitely recommend this restaurant to my friends.
We just had a fabulous Thanksgiving dinner at Sweetwaters and our servers Emily and Tessa were outstanding. We would definitely come back again.
