River Run has, I think, survived long enough, and found its niche well enough, to be a northwest Racine institution. It's been years since we visited it, but we returned this morning for breakfast. There were perhaps 40 people in the restaurant--all elderly men dressed in the uniform of the retired working class. My wife was the only woman, and... More

It's definitely nothing fancy at all. might even be a little on the dirty rustic side. But the service was fine, and the food was decently priced and served in a reasonable amount of time.

We visited Family in Racine today and were not impressed with this place at all. From the moment we arrived there were issues. We had a party of 7 and they had a hard time figuring out what to do. They wanted to put us in two different booths rather than push two tables together. The majority of the food... More

We went here on a Friday for a fish fry, I don't know if the staff was in a hurry but the service wasn't that pleasant. The fish fry was very good. Light and flaky cod. My baked potato was microwaved which was disappointing. The meal came with a bread basket, soup or salad. We had the clam chowder and... More

We came from out of town to visit family for Thanksgiving. We have never eaten here before but my boyfriend recommended it because he knows I love dinners. I don’t like to eat at too many franchisees and love the family own restaurant. At first we I was a little worried but when we walked in I loved it. It... More

A lot has changed at this restaurant in the last two years - the inside was redecorated and new furnishing installed - the staff wear uniforms and are friendly. The menu is also new - and the food has improved immensely. It is a favorite among the senior citizen crowds of which several groups meet at the restaurant for breakfast.... More

There was so much wrong with this resaurant. 1.) Its dirty.- Carpet is disgusting, smells like smoke, tables were still dirty. 'The whole atmosphere was just junky. 2.) Workers are unproffesional and so not friendly. Were not welcoming, ignored us as we waited at a table for almost 45 minutes, and didn't even bother to check on us throughout our... More

This isn't fine dining by any means. I ordered an omelet, hash browns, and toast. I didn't get more than halfway through the first section of my newspaper before my food was in front of me. It was hot and exactly as ordered. My server was friendly and kept my coffee full. The whole meal was less than 7 bucks.... More
