An alternative shopping center to the massive Westfield shopping center in nearby Palm Desert, The River has a nice collection of restaurants including our favorite Cheesecake Factory. There are also many shops and a ice skating rink in the Christmas season. However, the are more than a few vacant storefronts which makes you wonder how well the place is doing.... More

The restaurant areas are fine for PF Changs, Cheesecake Factory, etc. and the theatre area, but the upper part of the structure beyond the Cheesecake Factory is full of vacancies, the river no longer flows and there were even some roaches in that area of the facility.

Everything is built in a circular type layout with little facing outward so you have to find " a way in". There are few access points with all the parking around it in a cavernous size parking lot where during season you can spend 20 minutes looking for... More

The River restaurants include the Yard House, Babe's (BBQ), Fleming's (steaks and seafood), P.F. Chang's, Cheesecake Factory. You can... More
