Our Customers Fall In Love With Us
Martin Johnson Minneapolis, MN"We love this place!!! The food is extremely tasty, and you can't beat the price! Daily specials are great, as well as the friendly, accommodating staff. We're from Minneapolis, however any trip we make within the vicinity of the restaurant will definitely include a meal at the River Inn"
Patti Duluth, MN"If you enjoy beef and crave an awesome burger, cooked to perfection, you should try the River Inn in Scanlon, MN. They have a daily special, but you can't beat their 1/2 pound cheeseburger with fries."
Bonnie Austin"Sweet little spot on the river...Lots of play room for my kiddo and we paddle boarded while waiting for food. Very nice staff...Owner was extremely kind. 5 stars all the way."
Gracia K. Cloquet, MN"Best burgers in town... especially the 1/2# Riv burger (ground round from B&B Market). Great view if the river and a really clean, nice bar. Will let you watch any sports channel you want, from baseball to NASCAR. Great specials during the week, too!!"
Elizabeth M Minneapolis, MN"Picturesque river setting, laid back environment, great food! Randy the owner was a gracious host! When through Cloquet, we will be back!"
Dan S St. Paul, MN."A great view of the river> The waitress insisted the Philly cheesesteak was great, but I was skeptical, having had so many lousy ones in over 40 years. It tied as the best Philly I've ever had including the original cheesesteak at Geno's in Philadelphia. We enjoyed the story of the bar being flooded out earlier this year also."
Jonathan W"If your still feeling under the the weather from a late night with friends, I would highly recommend this place, good Bloody Mary's an even a better breakfast menu! Friendly staff, and food an a hurry! Remember to bring your masks"
Trisha Strom"Good food good company Good Times"
Thomas K"The place was reccomended to me as a good place for lunch. Had a grilled chicken sammich and fries with a water to drink. Food served hot and fresh. Portion size ample. 7 bucks plus a tip. I usually do not get excited about pickles. But these are amazing pickles. Sure. Give these guys a try."
Dan H."The staff are always friendly and accommodating. The food is a little over price for a typical bar food."
