The Riverview Lodge is a wonderful location to visit whether staying as a guest or dining formally or casually. We enjoyed a birthday meal with are grown adult children and celebrated our daughters birthday. The staff were amazing and made the night a joy by ensuring our meals were well prepared. Thanks!!

Solid 4 Star (Out of 5) establishment. Keep in mind that you are in Dryden. (Relatively remote northern Ontario Town of eight thousand people) Not Toronto or Winnipeg. Little dated interior, but that is the point of the "Lodge" experience and should be accepted as a wonderful, nostalgic location with a great history.

On day 4 of our road trip to B.C. we stopped at this pretty lodge on the river for lunch. I enjoyed my Buffalo chicken dip with tortilla chips but my friends lunch was very disappointing. She first ordered the nachos but didn't expect them to be so spicy. As she was unable to eat them she ordered a burger... More

We try to get to the dining room once in a while, but love to pop into the lounge for a quick beverage and appetizers before meetings or hockey game etc...casual and comfortable. Service is usually great and the wings are awesome!

We had a business gathering for dinner with approximately 18 people. The staff were fine, they seemed rushed with little rapport with customers. The food is great, appys, mains and desert!!! The dining room is very nice, maybe a bit dark but the ambience is good! The steak was expertly cooked and I recommend the in house made ice cream... More

Went to The Lodge after a work function with 9 others and they accommodated us no problem. I had been there many times before ( actually had our wedding reception there many years ago!) and ordered the wings again. they are awesome; dry and small with a bit of spice to them. Very good as usual! A few of my... More

Like a lot of places, less meal for the buck and costs more than it used to. Not as good as it used to be but can still enjoy a night out.

Was recommended by our motel and was truely a great dinning expierence. Arrived a little late but were still given a table for two. After travelling from Brandon it was a very pleasant end to our day. Food was excellent and well presented, wait staff were very attentive and cost was reflective of the total experience.
