After all that shopping excitement, you’re probably feeling hungry. Whether you are in the mood for light fare or a fully-licensed restaurant, McArthurGlen has something for everyone’s taste buds. Bite into an authentic taste of Italy’s famous Neapolitan pizza at BIBO Pizzeria’s, or to Japadog for the famed Japanese twist on the hotdog, or for some amazing Chinese food go to Neptune Wonton Noodle. P.S. Best of all, if you enjoy eating al fresco, all of the restaurants offer great outdoor patios.

Welcome to your home base for the next few nights. The River Rock Casino Resort has many amenities to offer from slot machines and table games to various dining establishments.
