Food. Fun. Friends.

River's Edge is a cozy neighborhood tavern and music venue in the heart of Historic Downtown Batavia.

With over 100 local and craft beers, a growing whiskey collection and locally-sourced menu featuring house-made smoked bacon varieties, we strive to be your favorite gastropub in the Western Suburbs.

Seasonally, the bar expands into a 5-tiered beautiful outdoor beer garden with outdoor performances and the most dog-friendly seating in the TriCities. If you're spending time on the river fishing or kayaking, passing through on a bicycle or motorcycle, or just looking to enjoy a great meal and a drink in a comfortable, inviting atmosphere, River's Edge is your bar. New friends await! See you downtown :o)
