Located on the River Walk, and on the back side of the Cotton Sail Hotel. There's a nicely tucked away small bar area that sometimes has local entertainment. I ordered the grouper stuffed with bluefish and it was excellent. A good sized pour for the wine, too.

We had seen some good reviews so why not. The River house is quite nice, friendly staff and good food We started out with a crab bisque and Oysters Savannah then a shared Paella. Paella is like a gumbo, shrimp, crab, clams, fish and chicken over a bed of rice. Extremely tasty and enjoyable. Our server, Andrea was great, helpful... More

My 2nd visit in 3 years and it did not disappoint. Charming interior and a great selection of seafood dishes. Shrimp and Grits was excellent. Have a glass of their Artillery Punch and marvel at the ingredients listed on the placemat! The souvenir glass is a nice touch too!

Really good meal! The bread that comes out is piping hot, and comes with a blue cheese butter to melt all over each roll! I had died and gone to roll heaven! Good service and nice touches...like how they take the time and attention to detail to give you chilled forks for your salads!

Food was okay but for quantity served it was definitely over priced. Beautiful old building with lots of ambience unless you get stuck in the corner like we did. Not sure why with all the open tables. We should have asked to be moved.

I came in wanting Shrimp and Grits but after a quick and convincing conversation with the Bartender, Grouper Florentine was the #1 Choice and a Must Have. She was not wrong by no means and I am happy I listened. The panko breaded grouper with creamed spinach and the Parmesan grits melted in my mouth with every bite. I paired... More

The group i was with ordered fried green tomatoes which were sliced thin but not too thin. Their taste was fantastic and the sauce excellent. For dinner I ordered the grouper florentine and it was outstanding as well. For dessert, the chocolate bread pudding was excellent and could easily serve two to three.

Thank Paul C
