High prices and low service. Food was good but not a good value.

We went to the River Bistro for date night on a Friday night during the annual truck climb. The food was great, and the waitstaff were very attentive. I would highly recommend this restaurant!!!

Based on the initial pictures and description I wasn't expecting this to be inside a ski resort. It wasn't a problem, just unexpected. The food wasn't bad but it wasn't anything special. If you are on vacation looking for good food to try in the area, there may be better places available. The staff was extremely friendly though and made the overall experience very enjoyable.

We ate here on new years eve and had very good service as well as good food. We eat here occasionally and enjoy the atmosphere.

The wait staff was outstanding! Cordial, smart, helpful young people. The food is hit or miss. I ordered the Southwest Stir Fry, and was looking forward to a heap of vegetables (it says on the menu: squash, zucchini, onions, pepper, carrots) and it came with a measly portion of zucchini and yellow squash buried under a mound of what tasted like store bought wild rice mix (Zatarain), heavy with cheese. The Truffle Fries, however, are indulgent and wonderful. The best fries I ave ever eaten on any continent! The Apple Spice Cake was just OK. It consisted of what tasted like a store bought pound cake (rather than something fresh baked on premises, which would have been excellent) with a good apple sauce and ice cream. My husband was happy with his meal, the Steak Sandwich and an order of the specialty cole slaw. It is a convenient place with beautiful urban ambience indoors, and the patio has great views of the Cedar Village hills and forests.

Great restaurant with beautiful setting. Wish the BBQ brisket tacos were a permanent menu item.

We spent a wonderful weekend at Schuss Mountain as a family (2 adults and 3 boys) and the River Bistro was perfect for a casual, after-skiing hang out and dinner. The Food was great and the service were terrific. The drinks at the bar were great and our waitress was very helpful (thanks, Billie Jo). We also ate breakfast here both days, which was buffet style, and the food was great and a great, quick way to have a breakfast before skiing. Thanks all!
