We had a great night at the Riverina. We went along to play trivia which was really well run by an enthusiastic quizmaster, it was a pacey night and a great atmosphere. The other patrons were pleasant and enjoyed themselves too. Our meals were fantastic! My partner's chicken dish was maybe the best meal she's ever had. My garlic prawns and rice were delicious, both meals well priced. Friendly staff too, a pub worth visiting again!

We ordered the dumplings/ always good. We also ordered the Bruschetta, which was very disappointing this time. It was dry bread with lots of tomatoes on top, minimal goats cheese and sauce. The tomatoes kept falling off the plate, some looked old and tasted sour. It was difficult to eat, needing a knife and fork to load toppings onto bread. Love going to the Riv and will go back, will just steer clear of the bruschetta.

Food was excellent. Scotch fillet cooked to our request. Our service was great and quick, however, did notice that people who ordered B4 us were waiting for over 20minutes after we received our meals to get their food.

I like this place it has a good atmosphere and friendly staff, food is normally good.....not tonight, ordered the slow cooked ribs they were rubbish. Overcooked, dry full of gristle and basically inedible, the best thing on the plate was the chips, advised staff and she was accepting of the facts even suggesting was dry before I offered any details, but beyond responding courtesly with an I'll let them know, there was clearly a lack of interest nobody from kitchen or manager came out to discuss nothing was offered in recompense for the good money I had spent there.
Will possibly return for a beer but eating there is simply off the table in the future.

Dropped in for my first visit for a quick pint and some ginger dumplings with a shared bowl of chips. The dumplings were tasty,
and the chips were hit and crunchy

Very "Home" style type of meal for the price. Ordered a Riverina black Angus steak Medium rare, and it came out medium. Was still very tender though! Paying $40, I would expect the steak to be on point. Veggies were fresh, mash potatoes were great, but sauce was some powdered gloopy mess, with some pickled green peppercorns added to it. Did not do the beautiful, but over cooked steak justice. Very basic service here. My guest had the lamb cutlets, lamb was very tender, but too much oil on the outside. Maybe fryer not turned up to the right temperature?

Order from counter, meals placed on table and then have to walk up to the main bar for drinks. Meals were a great portion, but I suggest that they get bigger main plates. It was a clumsy mess because the plate was just too small. Easy fix!

Service very basic, seemed to be more content behind the cash register, than walking over to see if everything was OK.

Must be a lack of staff here, as the service felt cafeteria like. No time to spend with customers to share that beautiful country charm. It's a shame. I use to eat here many many years ago. Like 1990's. The place was totally different with an extensive menu and good vibe. Not sure what happened, but they really need to work on the atmosphere. Seems dull and dreary now.

We spent June long weekend at Wagga and visited The Riverina Hotel 3 times, because of deficiency of other pubs in the area. Reading some one star reviews for the same dates it feels like we had a preferential treatment (thanks Riverina :-). Yes, it was a limited menu. But food was very good. Service was very fast and efficient. For these days, prices are very reasonable. We saw a lot of local people, families with kids and pensioners gathering at The Riverina. It is always a good sign. It was our second visit to Wagga in 2 years and The Riverina is a our preferred place for food.

A really great little pub with an awesome happy hour, however, please be aware that happy hour is restricted to house beers only, so if you are like us and interested in beer slightly better than Carlton draft then the prices are pretty on par with the rest of town at any other time. Food was excellent and the bar staff were very friendly. Plenty of available parking nearby and only 2 minutes into town.

Initially was a little out off by the prices then when walking by lunch time yesterday saw the lunch special. I normally wouldn't order a steak but though hey why not. The humble $15.90 lunch steak special was probably the best steak I've had outside of Melbourne's expensive steak houses (and better than some!). Absolutely superb. So well cooked and seasoned. The mashed potato was unbelievably smooth and buttery. My poor wife had to live through me having a 'When Harry met Sally' moment all lunch long. Do yourself a favour and go get one!

The Riverina hotel, this was our second time there for a feed, the staff were lovely the food was excellent and well portioned, it was a busy night being burger night but we didn't have to book in a seat!

The atmosphere at the venue is exceptional, with plenty of options on the menu was a great experience!

One of the best steaks I tried. We drove through this town and decided to dine in this place on the Monday. The steak was divine and very affordable. It was way better than the expensive ones we tried in Canberra. Th staff were very friendly and accommodating. I believe this place is iconic. The folks were also smiley. We waited a bit but it was worth it. I will definitely visit this place again.

We hadn't been to the Riv for years because it wasn't worth going to until it changed hands (again). I've been meaning to do several reviews but kept forgetting until now. Hubby and I shared the steak sandwich with chips on the side. We knew it would be enough for us because Brent had one to himself last week. Last weeks and today's were the best steak sanga's we've had anywhere and I mean anywhere. Since coming back between us we've had the lunch specials of Wagyu rump, ham hock terrine, schnitzel, prawn. pasta, silverside, black angus porterhouse and cutlets. You can see we've been a few times and I'm sure I've forgotten one or two things. Every time the food has been well above average. Steak sandwich, bloody beautiful. Staff have also been friendly and helpful too.

Food was amazing and the place has a good atmosphere just need the staff to be friendly and it doesn't hurt to smile the lady at the bar looks like she hated her job before and after you ordered no smile at all and she just turned her back straight away after she hand over the drink love to comeback tho but not order a drink with her again a brunette chick but don't know her name better put a name on their uniform next time or just a name tag

Waited over an hour for meals. Would have been nice to be told when ordering there would be a wait. When food finally arrived and we made a comment about the wait we got attitude from a disrespectful teenager. Shame, because had the meals not been stone cold they would have been worthy of positive feedback. Let's just say, as tourists we won't be back or recommend this venue to other travellers.

We had a delicious meal at The Riv. The wagyu steak was very tender and cooked perfectly and the Thai beef salad was equally tender and had a lovely chargrilled flavour. The salad was nice, just a bit over-dressed for me. Thanks, we'll be back.

Ultimately the food is lovely, they didn't get my order right...it was close. Also, the bar staff could be a bit more polite.

A friendlylocal country pub where the real charm is the original stone structure which houses the restaurant. Food was tasty and it's clearly a favourite with the locals. Best meals are the salmon, lamb cutlets and steak.

Must be one of the best pubs in Wagga to go for a beer and feed. One of the few remaining pubs where you can sit at a table and have a quiet beer without music blaring after 9 o'clock.Food is amazing. Staff always good and they have 50 Lashes ON TAP.
