The renovation design concept was inspired by vintage industrial design including weathered wood, metal accents and concrete. The end result will be a look that’s clean with well-defined lines yet approachable and a little rough around the edges. Stay tuned for a new name to call the restaurant – rooted in the area’s history and community.

As the new look is unveiled, we will also launch a new menu focused on savory, well-prepared American grill dishes. With longstanding relationships with local Columbia Basin farms and producers, the grill will continue sourcing food and beverage ingredients from the region as often as possible.


Just recently, farmer owned and operated Ordnance Brewing of Boardman, moved two pieces of its breweries taproom into the River Lodge, both its award winning beer and great cheer! With Ordnance brews on tap and the new -and very popular- riverfront cabins, River Lodge, Cabins & Grill is now the ideal “beercation” destination.

Ryan Neal, Executive Director and CEO of the Port of Morrow in Boardman, approves of the project. “The Port of Morrow is excited about the continued investment that the River Lodge continues to make here in Boardman. You cannot beat the location right on the river and these new additions will only make it even better,” said Ryan.
