The Riverview has, hands down, the best location in town on a sunny afternoon, and it ain’t too shabby for a quiet rainy winter evening either. Beautiful inside, with a huge deck nestled in the trees right by the Sandy River to enjoy a plate of calamari and a glass of wine. Nice for a great dress-up meal, or (it is still Oregon), Levi’s will pass just fine.
The Riverview does a lot of weddings in the summer, so it would be worth a phone call ahead on summer weekends, or a Plan B.
The river is only green like in this picture when we hit the glacier melt point from Mt. Hood. The Sandy is a beautiful clear river, and worth spending some time with.
Directions: Exit 18 to the Historic Highway, past the Troutdale Bridge, past the Tippy Canoe, to the Stark Street Bridge. Turn right onto the bridge and you’re there.
