About Us

Our Mission

 Old River Grill is a locally owned, family operated business. We love Bakersfield and our mission is to be a celebration of the community we serve. At Old River Grill, we believe fresh food tastes better, and that's why we use only the freshest, locally sourced ingredients to make all our food from scratch.  


 Everything about Old River Grill, from the recipes to the decor, comes from my heart and soul. I truly hope you love it the way I do!

Seasonal and Local

We refuse to compromise on quality in our restaurant. That's why we always try to feature specials that are in season. During November and December, we feature our Pumpkin Pancakes with Pecan Butter, Pork Tamales, Pecan Pie, and much more.
