The wife and I were travelling through and needed something for supper. We decided to eat at the Riverhouse since it was close to our hotel. Food and service were excellent. We will definitely stop here again next time we are coming through town.

The eggs benny was tasty and hubby had the corn beef hash breakfast. They both tasted great! For his dish, it had sliced deli meat style, which was unusual.

They serve a great family style breakfast that is available until 2pm I believe. Love that they have a twist on the Eggs Benedict....available with either ham, bacon or sliced tomato. Great service and nice atmosphere
