This place is awesome! Beer and Pork! From the impression i got is its a normal thing to wait an hour or more to get a table as the place is always packed. The food is amazing! The beer selection is outstanding! Will definitely visit this place again when I'm in town!

Great food, on the higher end price-wise. $15 burgers (very good) and beers are $6-$9 a glass. Draft list varies, bottle list is fairly priced. Nice establishment, that is comfortable and provides a great place to socialize and enjoy nice beers. Bartenders are very knowledgeable and know their stuff.

The Salted Pig was recommended to me by a co-worker while on a business trip in Riverside. We sat at the bar in front on the kitchen. The beer menu was quite extensive. Being from the Southeast, they had dozens of beers I hadn't tried. I wish I would have had more time to try more of their offerings. The Pig Burger was delicious, as was the fried bacon-wrapped dates appetizer plate. How could anything not be good when it's wrapped in bacon and fried? My friend thought the food was all a little too salty, but it tasted pretty good to me. I guess you expect some salt when most of the food incorporates some form of pork. The prices were a little on the high side, but not unreasonable. This is my new go-to spot whenever I'm on business in Riverside in the future!

I stopped in for dinner at The Salted Pig recently as i was in the area on business. I got a seat at the bar, but there are lots of tables and whatnot as well. They had about 8 beers on tap along with an extensive rotating bottle list available as well. I got their Pig burger which was quite tasty, and everything else that came out from the kitchen looked good too. Service was pretty good even though the bartenders were very busy as the night I went it was really crowded. The only real negative is that everything is pretty expensive for both food and drinks, with my burger being $15 and pints starting around $7. However, I would recommend a stop in here if you are in the area.

Hands down the best gastropub in Riverside, The Salted Pig sports rotating drafts (always at least one beer you’ve *got* to try, and always at least one IPA) as well as a well-stocked assortment of bottled craft brews; and a menu of toothsome snacks, appetizers, burgers, and full dinners. You can’t go wrong with the french fries and amazing house-made ketchup, or the filthy fries smothered in roasted garlic and ale cheese, perfect to fortify you for that next glass, goblet, or bottle of beer from Russian River, Ballast Point, or Lost Abbey. For true beer fans, nothing in Riverside competes with the Pig.

This is a great place to visit in Riverside for beer and food enthusiast. Let me start with everything but food & beer. The location is nice, it's downtown Riverside, so much less "ghetto" than the other parts of the city as well as the whole Inland Empire. The service is great, staff is very helpful and will allow you to try the tap beers before the order. Just take the table, the bartenders are not that nice as the servers (ask for Matt or James)
It's a little dark inside but I actually love it. It's not too loud.

Now, the important stuff. They have a huge selection of beer, many bottles and usually around 10-14 beers on tap, which change very frequently, usually every week or two, so you will never get bored even if you're a regular.

Food. I tried a lot of stuff from here, the basic menu is really good, the Pork Belly sandwich is an absolute must try (although I preferred it with mandarins instead of pear much more). The plain ol' burger is great, order it rare. Filthy fries are really really good. They also have many special dishes every week. They recently had Monkfish with pancetta, tapioca & caviar & slab bacon flatbread which were both amazing. Also, they have really good house made ice cream with flavors like chocolate lavender, bacon etc..

If you're in Riverside that is the place to go.
