I had the Western Burger and fries. It was very good. My friend had the same burger with the chips and those were also very good.

Pretty decent selection of food from normal bar fare, to some decent entrees from the kitchen. It was summer, so very nice sitting out on the patio with the outdoor bar, and view of the mississippi

We ate at the Black River Bar & Grill primarily because we were staying at the Riverfront Hotel. Our expectations of hotel restaurants are low, but in this case we were pleasantly surprised.

Stay away. Rude service, mediocre food and you will wait forever. My family and I ate here twice while stayed at the Best Western; the first time, my husband and children. The second time I joined them, along with my parents. The first time, my husband and kids said the wait was extremely long. The second time was no different.... More

I recently dined with a group of nine friends at this restaurant. We were staying at the Best Western and the restaurant is inside this motel, with a patio on the riverside.

This restaurant is in the Best Western Riverfront Hotel in La Crosse. It has outdoor and indoor seating, and the outdoor view, atmosphere, and experience is beautiful. And of course the food was great! A must-go!

They actually changed their name to Black River Bar and Grill, but anyways, this restaurant is awesome, especially their prime rib. This restaurant is part of the Best Western Riverfront hotel and both the hotel and restaurant was amazing. You can go to eat here even if you are not staying at the hotel.

We are located in the Best Western Plus hotel, right on the Black River. We have a deck and bar with a beautiful view, there a boat docks so you can stop in for some food or a drink when out enjoying the river when the weather is warm
