River Inn Bar

About Us

The River Inn Bar is located three and one half miles west of Chippewa Falls on County Highway X (old Highway 29). The establishment has been in existence since the early 1940s. The original bar was replaced with the current building as it stands today in 1968. Even though the old bar is gone it still holds many memories from the past, hardly a week goes by that someone doesnt reminisce about the old bar or as commonly known as Sams place, and the way it was, in their day, and the happenings that took place there. Sam and Ester Rineck owned the bar for the longest period of time. Several others have owned the bar in the years since, most of which have had roots in the local area. The current owners, Art and Sue Schroeder (also locals), purchased the River Inn on November 1st, 2005. Art works for a national construction company while Sue manages the daily activities of the bar. Family, friends, and great employees all lend a hand in keeping things running smoothly. The River Inn Bars mascot will greet you at the door. This five-foot cast iron rooster has guarded the entrance to the bar since November 2005, when it was given to Art and Sue by family and friends as a bar warming gift when they purchased the bar. The rooster represents River Inns signature chicken wings, which are prepared and served throughout the week. The River Inn Bar has been a part of the areas history for many years. It is a place where family and friends unite and gather in both good times and bad. Art and Sue along with family and friends hope to keep this tradition going. So stop out and see them, and dont forget to check out the wings while you are there. Our restaurant is a great place for lunch and dinner and to watch all of your sports teams with family and friends. We have been listed as one of the top ten best places to drive to in Wisconsin by Travel Wisconsin.

Want amazing wings. This is the place. Just remember it's the whole wing. Tip, flat, and drum all together the way it should be.

Great chicken wings! I had a burger to go with it and it was delicious. The bartender was slammed but she did a fantastic job! River Inn has been added to my list of places to go as I travel the Midwest.
