River's Inn Restaurant
Great food a great viewHad some very good seafood early sat. Had reservations and table was ready on time. 2nd time eating there in a month and both times food was excellent. And both times waiter was new but did a decent job. Will go back again. I would judge as one of the best off the beaten path restaurants in the area.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and serviceThe food was wonderful and our host Jason was outstanding.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMAnniversary DinnerMy wife and I have been to your establishment many times, always reserving it for a special occasion. Last night was our fith wedding anniversary and so we chose to dine at sunset and enjoy the ambiance and fine menu. Our waiter was cheerful, friendly and helpful with the items on the menu. The Crab cakes we ordered were spectacular and we enjoyed our entrees and dessert to the max.
Suffice to say, we will be back on other special occasions and thank you for being there.5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful Mother's DayLovely view, comfortable seating, delicious food - nice size portions, the limoncello cake was incredible, very nice experience. I will definitely return.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's DayReservations @5:45. One of the 3 entrees was unavailable because they ran out of it before 6pm. They are open until 9 or 10. The staff was courteous and helpful, but understaffed. We found out later our waiter was also the bartender. The food was excellent. When we ordered dessert, the creme brulee was unavailable because they ran out at 3:30. I ordered pie and he came back and said they just ran out of that too. They had had 300 reservations so far that day. Well, plan for it! I would hate to show up at 8pm. If you dine here, dine early. We waited for our check. Finally got up and that generated the check as it usually does. It was busy at the bar. Excellent floor staff, but bad planning.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat For GraduationWe enjoyed our lunch on the outdoor patio at River's Inn. The food was very good and we felt comfortable and relaxed there. We had just had our son's college graduation from CNU and it was good to get out of Newport News where it would've been mobbed with other graduates and their families.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place for lunch on the water!We recently had an excellent lunch at River's Inn. Oysters were fresh and local and the grilled swordfish was outstanding.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMQuiet with Great Food and ServiceWe are a group of retirees who get together for lunch a couple of times a year to catch up. River's Inn always gives us a nice quiet place where conversation is easy. On this occasion we also got great food and great service from Jason, the manager, who took care of us himself.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMOh yeahVery very satisfied, the rivers inn was absolutely perfect for making up for the awful anniversary i tried to make special last year, but this year she couldn't have been more impressed. Food was great and i think for the first time ever ii didn't finish all my dinner cause there was so much! Very nice people on top of it all made it that much better.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
