Ordered the full rack of ribs, they came out as a dry rub with dipping sauce on side. Sauce was something they just threw together. Cole law was served in a thimble equal to 2 bites and the French fries were OK. The full rack of ribs have 9 bones, so it's a "cheater rack". Wife got a burger had... More

Becoming a normal pit stop once or twice a week on the way home. Huge selection on their menu. I've sampled four different items so far, and only found one I didn't like. It was an odd concoction of a peanut butter hamburger. It wasn't prepared bad, just was a little too different for my taste buds. The bar staff... More

Our family of four used a Groupon on a Saturday mid afternoon. No other customers when we arrived. one came in, sat down, looked at menu, got up and left. Food was good but a little pricey.Good and quick service.Restaurant appears to have band on weekend nights.Would go back if in area.

Been here years ago, wasnt impressed then but decided to give this one another try. Ordered the fried seafood platter. Granted your thinking, huge mistake and it was. It was frozen but Mrs Pauls is better quality than what was served. Slaw came with the platter but didn't arrive with ours. I had to ask the waiter, which I might... More

As above they have average pub food but some cool beers on tap which is more the point of a taproom. They also had some great live music on a Thursday night. Visit for the beer not the food and stay for the music.

Cool place for unique pub food & unique local craft beers. Nice ambiance & outdoor patio. Friendly staff. This was our second visit in two years. We will be back! If you like a smooth beer, that is not too hoppy, ask for Mother Earth Dark Cloud. Would have never thought to try it out on our own, but waiter... More

Positives: easy to get to, good parking, nice patio, good bar, great live music on weekends. Negative: had dinner that tasted really good. It was the only thing I'd eaten since breakfast (normal for me) and by later that night I got a violent case of food poisoning. By that time, they were already cIosed. I couldn't even call early...

The river ridge tap house catered an event I attended recently and I could not mention enough how poor the service was. All of the catering staff was rude and the food came out late and dry! When I attempted to speak the gentleman claiming to be the manager of the event he was also so rude and uncaring. Would... More

It seems that every time things start to go well, management decides to make changes. I was in on a Wednesday evening, when North Carolina draft beers are supposed to be on special ($3). My server was very good (friendly, attentive) and brought me the list of Carolina beers. After I had made my selection, the bartender walked by and... More

My husband and I ate here this past weekend. I haven't eaten there in a while and actually was not very excited about going, but that's where my husband wanted to go. I was pleasantly surprised. We decided to share some appetizers instead of ordering entree's. We got the sweet and spicy shrimp, spinach and artichoke dip and the Tap... More
