The Rockwater burger was one of the best I've ever had! Angus beef with Monterey jack, peppercorn sauce, caramalized onion, smoked bacon- great! Good beer on tap. Sat outside with the Columbia river moving swiftly along. Will visit again when up there!

Great food, interesting menu and ice cold local beer. Rockwater Grill & Bar was a pleasant surprise after a long day driving. Service was good and the dessert menu tempting. You can't beat watching the river as the sun goes down!
