    Had always wanted to try this restaurant having seen it from the highway, also a co-worker endorsed it! It was my birthday so my husband & I decided to give it a try..it certainly didn't disappoint! It was a lovely day, so we sat on the deck looking out to the marina, the food was amazing, I had a seafood gratin dish with side spinach salad & my husband had a caesar salad with blackened halibut. Would definitely go here again!

    I booked through the website and thought I was booking for the RESTAURANT for Father's Day, I even phoned to confirm I had made a reservation in the RESTAURANT as I was a little unsure about booking online. I was told that YES I had made a reservation at the restaurant. Secondly I had seen that they were offering a buffet for Father's Day, but not being a fan of buffet's asked if the menu would still be available - SURE they said. Showed up on Father's Day only to find out that we were seated in the PUB side and that NO MENU service was available. The food was COLD, STALE and lacked any flavor. Our server told us that tea, coffee and JUICE was part of the buffet price but charged us for juice anyway. Overpriced and disappointed!!

    I forgive the retirement party as they were having a lot of fun but it was noisy. The food was no better than average and my seafood casserole was very dry. We have been to the RV many times. This was our first time in months and the standard has slipped badly. Won't be back soon.... if ever.

    The service was great, the food was amazing! I had the RH Chop Salad with Blackened Hailbut. The salad was a very entre' size full of veggies, and the Halibut was a generous portion that melted in my mouth! My boyfriend had The Seafood Pasta with Gorgonzola Sauce...OMG! Just thinking about the bite I had is making my mouth water, I'm going back this week just so I can order that! The view is beautiful, the staff is friendly, and it's just a great place to go.

    My review is actually for the restaurant. When I made the reservation for a group of 6 I thought I was reserving a table in the restaurant. Although the restaurant was expected to be full the staff accommodated us very nicely by moving tables around and finding a lovely corner for my group.

    We went on a Thursday evening - four people.e - and decided to order off the tapas menu. All the selections we shared were wonderful - great presentation and excellent taste. We had a nice view of the boats at the adjacent marina. This is a peaceful spot, and the servers created a relaxing dinner atmosphere for us.

    My husband and I took our moms to the Riverhouse's dining room side for Thanksgiving dinner. We had a lovely meal and our moms both loved it. The food was very good but I wouldn't say it was exceptional. However, given the location and ease of getting there with our family, we'll definitely be back.

    I've been to Riverhouse many many times. This was a lovely warm Thursday evening having dinner with friends. It was a little distracting to have the restaurant manager packing up the seat cushions and moving tables and chairs around that would normally be done at closing time, while we were having our meal. A little disappointed in the value of my meal compared to other restaurants in the area.

    We were not very inspired when we first perused the menu but ordered the seared tuna to start which was delicious. Then I had the cajun chicken on a ciabatta with salad and was quite happy with it. My husband had the oysters and fries and was satisfied with his meal. All in all, it was a good meal.

    We were so disappointed, we were looking forward to a Thanksgiving dinner in the dining room at the Riverhouse we even brought 2 guests with us to enjoy the restaurant. When we arrived they informed us a private party of 65 had the use of the dining room so we would be seated in the pub. The turkey dinner that we all were looking forward to was 2 slicess of the rolled turkey on drsg with just a very small amount of gravy on th turkey. We had to ask for more gravy for the mashed potatoes and more cranberries. The pumpkin pie they served was very dry and not tasty at all. All in all it was a very disappointing Thanksgiving dinner will not trust them again.

    My brother and I took my parents to the Riverhouse Restaurant for my mom's birthday dinner on Sunday, November 14th. The food was fantastic and the servers were wonderful! Excellent, friendly and gracious service. On Sundays, they have a 3 course dinner special for $25.95. I think it's also on Mondays and Tuesdays. It's an amazing deal. Lovely, peaceful and cozy atmosphere and just a really nice dining experience all around. Thank you, Riverhouse for making Mom's birthday dinner so special. We didn't say it was her birthday as she didn't want any fuss. Cheers

    The reservation was made and they phoned on the day of the reservation to see if we'd prefer to have an inside view table instead of the deck as it was windy. I agreed that a nice waterfront view table by the window would be ideal as we were celbrating our 30th wedding anniversary. Upon our arrival the bartender told us we could sit anywhere we liked. All of the window tables were occupied. We took a seat at a table in the corner and awaited our server. I showed our server our confirmed reservation which I had on my I-phone. She apologized and stated this has happened before. I wasn't pleased but wasn't going to ruin our anniversary dinner. The waitress was excellent and she tried to make up for the error. She actually cared!

    I had booked a table for 8 for Mother's Day. However my group was seated outside when we hadn't specifed or requested this. We were told there were no tables available inside. While the weather was decent, some of my group were in the shade and cold since they hadn't anticipated sitting outside. The brunch food was good and generally well presented although placed in an awkward location in the passage way between two rooms and almost in the kitchen. On the upside the service was good.

    Had checked this out on Open Table reviews first and viewed site pictures on the Riverhouse website. I agree with the more positive reviewers. The food was excellent (Mother's Day brunch) with a sumptuous buffet of all things one wants in a sunday brunch, plus! The presentation was very good and the food fresh and hot with re-freshing occurring quickly. The staff treated us very well and even though it was a busy day, service was quick and friendly. We were seated on the deck - propane heaters kept it warm. The view was beautiful and serene, with rowing sculls whisking past on the river. All the desserts were so good Love the lemon merangue pie!) - we stayed and enjoyed the sun and coffee and atmosphere. A great, unrushed experience.
