Special Events

Live and local music each week! This fills our Dam Event Space with melodies in the winter and our patio with them in the summer. Reserve a spot in the space with the musicians by booking River Song. Reserve a spot in the space without the musician, where you will still be able to hear the music a bit, just not see too well by booking Bistro Socially Distanced Dining.

Either way, please plan on having some food and drink with us while you listen 🙂

Patio Update

The river frontage by our patio has experienced a bit of a landslide, requiring it to be closed for the rest of the season. I know, this makes us sad as well! But, we are super grateful that no one was hurt! While we look at getting it fixed, when the weather is great, we will set some tables out by the front entrance of the building for those who want to sit outside. Inside is always an option. Please stay tuned as we rebuild!

We are looking to put on a New Year’s Eve spread for you! Our amazing charcuterie board for those who want to stay home! Order a classic one for New Year’s Eve and a breakfast one for the next morning! Please call the Bistro for details.

The vision of our Bistro is a community place to relax and enjoy your time by the river. Due to too few hands on-deck, our fantastic staff is being overworked. In order to take care of our people, so they can better take care of you, we have adjusted our hours and will be closing at 3 pm on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday.

We are hiring! River Tyme Bistro, and Fox River Tours is gearing up for an exciting summer on the Fox River. We started Fox River Tours and opened River Tyme Bistro to give people memorable and relaxing experiences with our river. Whether you want to work aboard one of our boats as a narrator or mate, work in a young, ambitious, and professional culinary team, or gain experience in events and customer service. We are looking for people who want to be a part of something special. Reach out, give us a call, send us a message, we would love to hear from you.

Our patio got some new life this week, just like our new cafe menu! The current staff favorite is pictured, a raspberry mocha! It’s made with Colectivo espresso, whole milk, and house made chocolate and raspberry syrup made with real raspberries! ☕️😍☕️
