Copper Kettle

1005 S Main St
River Falls, 54022
Reviews:
Always good quality. Steaks and prime rib are excellent. Menu is crazy big. A few items are pre-packaged and seem more suited to 25 years ago (e.g. chicken Marco Polo). Probably better if they were a little more focused.
The happy hour is great, the food is very good, and the service has always been spot on. This is a gem in River Falls and worth the drive.
Prices are a little high for the type of food and the quality. If you do go, you have to get the cheese curds. They are the BEST.

Lazy River Bar & Grill

115 W Walnut St
River Falls, 54022
Reviews:
Awesome fish fry, good cheese curds. It was very busy, so we were able to get a lot of fresh food! I would definitely go back!
Lazy River has good prices for delicious bar fare. I agree with all other reviewers who say the broasted chicken is awesome and the hamburgers are great, too, especially on special on Wednesdays! The place is clean, with nice-looking light-colored wood decor. It's bigger on the inside than on the outside, as another reviewer indicated. We live a half-mile away, and it's our go-to spot when we don't want to make a decision about supper. :) Good beers on tap. Nice servers. Last time we were walking there, a car pulled over and said to us, "You from around here? Do you know a good burger joint?" Boy, did they ask the right people the right question! We said, "Yep--right there!" Later, inside The Lazy River, when they were leaving, they thanked us for the good advice. :)
Great local bar. Great meeting place and our favorite after work meeting place. Super awesome Wednesday night cheese burgers, best in town.

Emma’s Bar

Gotta love Schlemmas
I have frequented this establishment for over 13 years. The jukebox is full of real bar music Cash, Nelson, Jane's Addiction, Floyd, Zeppelin, etc. The bar staff are veterans. They make drinks to order. I have had some really great original concoctions served. Off sale prices are the best in town. They remodeled in early fall of 2010 after the WI smoking ban. The place is very clean. Prices on drinks/beer are great. One pool table at an angle, which makes for some very interesting pool shooting. One/Two dart boards, and video gambling games. Very laid back crowd, not a dress to impress kind of place. If you are looking for a "normal" bar in WI, this place is great.
It's a bar! With not allot more to offer but good drinks at a good price ,local and collage crowd it can be a fun place on the rite night

Steve’s Pizza Palace

110 N Main St
River Falls, 54022
Reviews:
This is a go to pizza place! You can't beat it! Worth the extra couple of dollars to get what they give.
Great service, awesome food! Garlic and cheese fries with sauce is a must get! Gyro with sauce is amazing! Ask a for gyro pizza...yum!!!
We like (used to love), Steves and in our opinion, has the best pizza in River Falls. They also have gyros as well which are scrumdillyicious. The prices are okay but the service is lacking. We waited and waited for our waitress to return to the table to order dessert but she never came back. So we paid and left. The friendliness is lacking as well. Is it that hard to greet your patrons? Is it also that hard to say thank you when a patron leaves? It's like everyone is grumpy here.

Luigi’s Pizza

103 E Locust St
River Falls, 54022
Reviews:
Worked here for many years. I'd be lying if I said I didn't continue to order their calzones, hoagies, and canadian bacon pizzas when I return home. It's a hearty, tasty pie that is unrivaled in town. Steve's is great, but I'm a Luigi's legionnaire forever. Great family atmosphere and keeps you warm on those cold winter nights. Recommended any time.
A collage pizza joint that's pretty good food at a fair price great hoagies and calazones too give it shot if in the area
The owner, Chuck K, runs a great little pizza shop. Great pizzas and close to UW-RF campus.

Kinni Creek Lodge & Outfitters

545 N Main St
River Falls, 54022
Reviews:
We had nothing but amazing service from the staff at KinniCreek Lodge on our 6 hour Jungle Tour. Everything started in time, we were transported to our launching spot and then kayaked back to the lodge! 6 hours was a bit long and we ran into some issues while on our trip. The creek its self was a bit more to handle for the beginner kayaker. There were a lot of downed trees and other obstacles. It would be nice to have an employee check these things before sending customers out. When we got back no one asked our opinion about how the creek was. Or at least warn us when they drop us off. We ran into a horrid fisherman who harassed us and verbally abused us. Lots of f-bombs about us being rude (we weren't loud and made sure to be very courteous as we passed) and he proceeded to tell us we were being "pretty f-info rude". I'm not sure what he was wanting from us. To get out and walk our kayaks AROUND him?? No thanks. we met him at the beginning of our trip. He, unfortunately, set the mood for the rest of our adventure. But to be fair we met 2 other fisherman who were super friendly and thanked us for being so quiet as we passed. So score one for us and a big FU To fisherman #1... We received drink tickets and were on our way! Tips: The first 4 hours are calm. Some obstacles but nothing like white water rafting. It's the last 2 hours that are harder for a beginner. If you are a beginner: Possibly hire someone to guide you. Bring snacks! leave your phone at home! Don't park at the lodge. Park at the library across the street Bring a change of clothes Wear sunscreen Put your sunglasses on a cord Ladies pee before you leave. No bathrooms on the creek
Well worth exploring a kayak adventure with a Groupon if you have never been before....I would not have been as happy if I paid full price. The two younger girls working the shuttle deserve 5 freakin stars as they were friendly, hard-working, and personable. The kayaks are a little beat down---my seat adjuster and leg support were broken. The river itself is stinky in some places ---The owner of the shop was on her phone the entire time and not sure why she had to be in or around the shop at all because it really left a horrid impression on the group I was with. Literally she made no pleasantry with anybody and was on the phone---yet put herself in a position where you felt like she was there to work. I had a good day on the little creek and enjoyed meeting some fellow first-time kayakers. I will kayak again but probably not here.
Kinni Lodge is an adorable bed & breakfast/cabin. It has three rooms to rent with a shared full kitchen and living room. There is a hot tub and grilling area. Each room has a closet, fireplace, tv, dvd player, and bathroom. All doors lock with your room key for privacy and security. Every morning there is breakfast prepared; muffins and cinnamon rolls, english muffins, fruit, juice, coffee, tea, etc. It has a full kitchen. The lodge is off the river and only blocks from downtown. It allows everything (or a lot at least) to be within walking distance. I highly recommend this place for a place to stay. Much better than a hotel with a great amount of character. When you set up reservations make sure to ask about payment. It was cash only so clarify upon reservation.

Junior’s Bar & Restaurant

414 S Main St

Reviews:
Great place to eat, and they always have great live music on the weekends. We love their fish fry. Their macaroni and cheese is really good too.
I don't get to River Falls often but I make a point of stopping at Juniors. The food is always great and the beer sampler is great. Not sure what to try? Leave it to the experts, the staff has never let me down. They also have live music at night (although I haven't had a chance to check that out)
Junior's continues to provide a welcome respite to cheap bar food - grilled portobellas, fusions of Asian, Latin traditional American foods, good appetizers, great rotating selection of craft beers on tap, music on Friday evenings.

Bo’s’n Mine

110 S Main St
River Falls, 54022
Reviews:
My husband and I both love this place. I always get their Philly sandwich every time but my husband has tried a their sandwiches and burgers. It is always wonderful. Oh and you have to try their french fries. They are awesome!
Meh. For a college bar, the prices are ridiculous. Two of us guys ordered burgers with fries and a beer. $32. Really? Sixteen dollars each for a burger and a beer? Their Friday fish fry is horrible. The fish is dry and the breadcrumb batter sucks.
My husband was in Bo's this evening about 45 minutes ago. He ordered 2 appetizers and a side of fries. It took half an hour for his order, during which time he watched other people who came in after him get their food first. The server that helped him was nowhere to be found and someone even tried to hand him the wrong order. When she finally came back she had the order, which she set down on top of a to go bag and then walked away. Didn't even bother to bag his food. When he asked for a manager, another server said she didn't know who was managing or where they were. And when he called to complain, TWICE, no one answered. I work in a restaurant and this is ridiculous. My husband and I let a lot of things slide and we're not that hard to please, but half an hour for an order, being ignored, and a staff that doesn't even know who's managing on top of no one answering the phone? We won't be coming back again.

Ground Zero

Five dollar liter drinks is why you go to Ground Zero. No other reason. It's in a basement and it's not the nicest bar. It can get really crowded and rowdy, but the drinks are great and huge and cheap.

China Moon Buffet

1025 S Main St
River Falls, 54022
Reviews:
So it's a buffet and therefore I had to try just about everything tonight. Also my 4 stars are relative to this genre, i.e., Chinese buffet. I am very familiar with this place and have bounced between this Chinese buffet and another one kind of nearby for years. China Moon has a nicely updated decor and the food is not only updated but upgraded. Previously it was typical ok buffet food, but this time around I noticed some added pizzazz aka flavoring. A number of dishes including pepper beef, celery chicken, soup, all delivered a more satisfying taste than ever before. Even the sweet and sour had an added surprise with a hint of orange citrus. I spoke to one of the cooks (owner?) tonight and indeed he said they have made some food changes. I think for the better! Our service was perfect in terms of watching our beverage levels, etc. Plates were removed from our table right away and there were always plates at the buffet. It will be hard to justify travelling farther for Chinese food if they keep this up at China Moon in River Falls, WI! Price for 2 not including tip was under $23.
Once upon a time, this restaurant was pretty decent. Now, they are a shell of their former selves. Frequently they have no plates out at the buffet. That was my experience last night. They would bring them out 10 at a time. Their main dishes were out frequently as well. Refills on drinks? Forget about it. We were not asked until we were ready to pay the check though our cups were empty for about 30 minutes. The food, when it was there, was decent enough.
We've since ventured further into their menu and really, it's almost all the same. Onions and ONIONS in everything, peppers too. We ordered broccoli beef and snowpeas and beef, and they were the same (practically). Here's what to get for take out: chicken sticks, wonton soup, general tso's chicken, chicken-broccoli, pork egg rolls, lo mein. Buffet is average--C+. I wish they delivered!
