We found this restaurant to be really good. Food was great. We had the Grilled Chicken Club sandwich. Waitress was very nice. Service was quick. The waffle fries were so good--made perfect with a crunch. The outdoor seating was very relaxing. Right in the heart of downtown.

Food was ok but the service was off. Not for us but for otbers around us. Reservation lost, whining and complaining from young bus boy, bickering among staff. We sat outside so that was nice but the i side atmosphere is odd. Would probably go back since overall it was ok.

I would never, ever go back there!! My family of 5 went to dine there for dinner. The staff was rude, clueless, we waited for 30mins before they took our order Finally got our meals 2 and 1/2 hours later!! Our children were cranky and we left super disappointed. Two thumbs down!

We sat outside on the deck for dinner a couple weeks ago and it was very pleasant. We had some yummy steamed clams and I got the salmon (Wow! Wow! Wow!

We were here over the weekend with another couple. This was the most disorganized food service I've ever seen. We ordered burgers and sandwiches and after an hour and 15 minutes we were told that our food wasn't even started yet. The place was less than half full. They need to get their act together. Totally unacceptable, especially in a... More

The service was fast, friendly. The fried pickles were good. Unfortunately the chicken in the salad wasn't seasoned at all.

My 2 sons and I ate lunch here 2 days this week. The food quality was very good as well as the service. We ate outside on the deck off the dinning room. It had total shade which made it nice. 👍👍👍👍 thumbs up for River House.
