A True Old Highway 101 Roadhouse!
2828 Avenue of the Giants
Phillipsville, California 95559
The Riverwood Inn has a full bar, rooms, and the best Mexican food in the world;
plus live music on most Friday and Saturday nights!
The Riverwood Inn was built in 1937 and is the last of the old roadhouses that populated the Avenue of the Giants which also used to be Highway 101.
During the floods of 1964, the Eel River washed away most of the small towns along the Avenue but the river only came up to the back door of the Riverwood, sparing this beautiful building. The building creaks and groans and we do have a documented ghost, however, he mostly restricts himself to the bar hallway and the upstairs banquet room.
During the summer months, the Riverwood Inn is a favorite stop for motorcycle and car clubs that travel the stunning Avenue of the Giants. Many groups call ahead and make special preparations for large lunch and dinner groups or room reservations. Travelers can enjoy our special rates when they make the Riverwood their home base for a long weekend in the Redwoods. We are within an hour of Shelter Cove to the west and Victorian Ferndale to the north and we can even direct you to our favorite swim holes on the winding Eel River.
Besides being a full bar and inn, we also serve the best authentic Mexican food at the El Rio Restaurant located within the Riverwood Inn. The servings are plentiful and affordable! We have a game room with pool tables and video games. Children are welcome during our dining hours. We also have live music and feature a great dance floor. Some of our recent bands have been John Lee Hooker Jr.,
Maria Muldauer, Candye Kane, Tommy Castro, Mark Hummel, Guitar Shorty and John Nemeth to name a few!. We love the blues! We also love Honky-Tonk & Rock-A-Billy! The Riverwood is homey, comfortable and welcoming, especially during the winter months when a roaring fire will greet you as you come in the door. We are open year round.
