I would like more of a variety to chose from. We had the steamers and the chicken appetizer. Both were good. The chicken was big enough for a meal. The wine (domestic Chardonnay and Pinot Noir) was excellent. Our waitress was perfect - friendly and attentive.

We asked to be seated outside instead of inside. It is unfortunate that the road is so loud but the food is great and the service was very good too. I had the Teriyaki Pork stir fry and it was fantastic. I would definitely recommend this restaurant. We love having a great restaurant in Brandon.

The food was overpriced and subpar. While still eating dinner a server asked if it would be okay to bring desert (which she asked us to order prior to finishing our meal). We asked if it could wait until we were actually done eating our dinner. Also the server went to take my plate before I was finished. Ridiculous!

We were a group of five on a girl's trip. We only had burgers and appetizers but everything was done to perfection. Our waitress was very efficient and we all enjoyed our evening at River Pub & Grill. We will definitely be back on our next trip to Brandon.

The food was amazing! The hostess greeted us like we were toddlers though and after explaining that the menu was online offered no assistance like we might need a password to access the internet as cell service was sketchy. Couldn’t figure out the rhyme and reason of who got a table and who didn’t if you didn’t have a reservation. So, if you want to eat her, get a reservation and the password is on the drink special blackboard.

The service was excellent. The cod, the salmon and the rib eye were prepared very well and tasted great. The salads are unique. The kale salad and the watermelon salad were wonderful. All plates were decently sized. The ambiance is very casual and pleasant, but basic.

The food was very good. I have tried at least three menu items and all were good. The ribeye steak was very tasty but smaller than we expected for the price. However, it would not discourage me from coming back.

The menu is unusual and interesting, and the presentation of each dish was well done. We sat at a low table, though most of the other tables were high top. The service was excellent.

We will definitely return to this restaurant! The only reason I couldn’t give a totally 5 star review is because there aren’t enough vegetarian choices on the menu. It is so nice to have another choice nearby!
