Met a friend coming from Vancouver for a casual lunch, so it was a great mid-way spot for us as I was coming from Portland. The dining room as a nice view of the river and interstate bridge, so that's nice. I've been there during warmer weather and sitting on the patio is nice.
I'm not sure what may have been going on, but this time the server seemed a bit cranky and inattentive, so that was not so pleasant.
Decent food and price for general dining with easy parking.

The food was very good and the service was excellent, especially since we had so many people at our table. On a Monday Holiday evening it was very quiet and the ambience was great.
Service was prompt and the menu selections seemed to satisfy everyone. Thank you for being so helpful with out large party.

was called the day before to verify reservation and was asked if we would be fine with a high top table... meaning we would be on the upper level at a high table and was guareenteed we would be able to see the Christmas ships, easily, over the heads of those in front. NOT the case, was seated at a low table. couldnt see a thing on the river without standing up. Also, they had a special menu that was not communicated to me when I made the reservation. VERY DISAPPOINTED

We celebrated our daughter's 24th birrhday Dec.19 at the Jantzen Beach Bar and Grill. Our party of six included two vegans. I emailed the chef a few weeks before our meal and asked for special accomodations as the posted menu had very limited options for plant based dining. Chef Brett came through with beautiful roasted squash stuffed with artichoke risotto for the vegans and tasty prime rib, seafood stew and fish-n-chips for the carnivores. The dining room was packed due to the Christmas Ship parade but the room was well staffed with warm efficient servers. Chef Brett even came to join us for a birthday toast after dessert. We will be back for more family celebrations.

Nice view, that's all it has. The service was poor I had to ask for coffee after being seated for 25 mins. The service was horrible and the food was cold and lacking flavor, hash browns swimming in grease. Place smelled musty and floor was filthy. A very sad place even for a hotel restaurant.

Spending the evening with family for an outstanding meal and Christmas ship viewing, was beautiful! I really appreciate how RL Bar & Grill put together an outstanding "special" menu and the music was so enjoyable. The entertainer was outstanding. The overall ambiance was relaxing, lovely and made for such a nice evening!

I really don't enjoy giving a restaurant a bad review if they don't deserve it, but I'm going to have to give this a "fair" review. The service was not up to par...we were left waiting and wondering what was going on after we'd been served coffee and cocktails. My husband finally had to wave someone down to ensure our order was put in. Then the food came out...we were all shocked that there was barely any food on the plate! The hash brown sliver given to us was two bites worth of potatoes and the benedicts were exceedingly small! It was shocking. You could see more plate than food (kinda' like Trump's inaugural crowd size...LOL). The good news is that the hash brown bites were crispy and the benedicts were tasty.

Would I go there again? Maybe, for the quality of the food and the great view of the river from every table, but ONLY if they do something about their serving sizes to compete with other restaurants in the area.

Birthday dinner, nice server, steak was not cooked to my specifications and server had them remake my entire meal while my husband ate his. He had the skirt steak and it was pretty tough. Great view! Sat on the deck in the sunshine.

Not sure what the bad reviews are about. The views are indeed amazing. But the food is too. The spinach artichoke dip was divine, hard to say what was best, the dip or the homemade tortilla chips, and the crab stuffed sole entree was perfection. Perfectly prepared and very tasty. Even the flourless chocolate cake was done right. This was a wonderful dinner where we didn't expect it, to be honest. This place is worth a visit.

Had reservations, didn't need them on a Wednesday night. Say on the patio overlooking the Columbia River. Waitresses were prompt and food was good, albeit a little on the process side. Overall a good experience.
