About Us

Casual charm, historic ambiance, great clientele…
The River Inn is a family owned restaurant known for it’s friendly small town hospitality. Located in Hanover’s Historical Downtown River District, the fashionable brick structure was constructed in 1894 and became Strunk’s Saloon & Pool Parlor in 1909. The original bar, tin ceiling and walls are still in use!

Join us for customer favorites BBQ Ribs Wednesday-Sunday (while supplies last) & Prime Rib Friday & Saturday. A Children’s menu is also available to make their night out an enjoyable one too!

Try our Lunch Buffet if you’re looking for a quick bite to eat or to sit and have a leisurely lunch. Served Monday-Friday 11:00 am - 1:30 pm

Enjoy a full compliment of wine, beer & malt beverages. And don’t forget to check out our outdoor patio.

Call us at (763) 498-7335 to order “Food-To-Go” for families on the go who decide to enjoy other things in life instead of cooking!

Hope to see you at the River Inn!  –Rick & Jodi Tappe
