Love the ambiance and decor! Staff very friendly and warm. Food was excellent. It just took a long time to come out. Our waitress explained a larger party ahead of us was reason for the delay. We didn’t mind much. Overall, we love this place and will be back!

It was my fathers birthday and I had went to River house for my birthday back in august and loved it so I suggested this is where we should celebrate his birthday. But unfortunately we waited 45 mins to an hour for our food and my steak was cold and grey and it was so hard it chipped my tooth .
We were disappointed..
Although our waitress was spectacular and updated us on wait times .

Great staff and food, regular pricing for higher end bar/comfort food, good portions. Renovations look great, nice outdoor seating by river, great spot to watch a game or take your s/o out for good food and drinks, and the moscow mules they made were spot on. The Weir is getting revamped, new boat ramp/river walk, Patriots put in a playground in the other side of the river, this place is a great addition, headed back sooner than later!

The food was very good. Our server was very good and very attentive. The food took a long time to come out, I know there was a function going on outside. But there were not very many people inside the restaurant. So I felt the kitchen was very slow or understaffed.

Love the vibe of the restaurant. I do however feel they are very short staffed. It was a very long wait for food. The staff seemed a bit stressed. I gave a 4 star because I know in these times keeping and getting staff is hard but it definitely was a very long wait (90 min) for food.

Had fish tacos, they were average. Nothing special. Drinks were really fun, especially the flights of mimosas and margaritas. Limited brunch menu on weekends, which was a bummer. I will go again but during the week to see a different menu.

The food from here wasn’t bad at all .. the service was absolutely terrible tho. Our bartender Liz wasn’t patient and seemed bothered/annoyed that she was training someone new and kinda took it out on us... it was out first time there so of course we were super excited, came in all smiles and ready for what we thought would’ve been a great lunch... but we left quite upset, even after speaking to the manager Nicole we still weren’t satisfied because she was also very passive, she said “well we’ve never gotten complaints about Liz before so i dont get the issue” and some more. Although, as i was speaking to her Liz came from behind her challenging what i was saying... as management Nicole could have easily told Liz to go out back or let her finish handling it and she would speak to her after but no, instead she let Liz continue to try and argue even after i said “i’m not speaking to you Liz, i’m speaking to management” ... so moving on, we paid our tab and were leaving. As i was walking out another waitress said i hope you guys have a nice day thanks for coming, i said to her “thanks for being the nicest person here... maybe i’ll have a better experience next time” and Liz heard me and says “well you dont need to come back here” .. i didn’t know she (the bartender) owned the place . How dare she yell I dont ever need to come back because of HER terrible service.

i WILL be back and i’ll keep my fingers crossed that she isn’t my server and that i’ll have a way better experience.
I’ll be sure to leave a review on Yelp since this one may never be acknowledged.

I’ve been wanting to try the RiverHouse for a while now, it’s so popular it’s hard to get a table. The fish and chips was very good, the batter was light and crisp, and the fries were fantastic. Portions were just right, often you get to much. The margarita flight was just ok, they pretty much blended together to taste the same, and the small glasses were difficult to drink from. We were told upfront that the outside dining only had 1 waitress, she did a outstanding job managing her stations. Happy to go back again.

I wanted to go here forever so I booked in advance for my birthday.

We made a reservation for inside but they asked for us to sit outside and I am glad we did. It was absolutely beautiful.

Our waitress was very nice and attentive for most of the night. Our drinks were great, although they took awhile to come out, but I understand because every place is short staffed.

Here’s where things started to go bad. One of us ordered salmon and the waitress let us know they were out of it. She also let us know they were out of chicken. turkey tips and kabobs. Again, trying to be understanding about shortages in the restaurant industry, but chicken? Everyone ordered and our food took quite awhile to come out. Still trying to be understanding of kitchen help shortages and delayed times. My filet came out raw. Not medium rare, cold, red and raw. I ordered a sweet potato and got a regular one, I also ordered scampi on the side and it came smothered. The waitress was great, apologized and went back to get me another plate with a sweet potato that had raw filet and was smothered in scampi sauce, in addition to stage thickest asparagus I have ever seen, also raw. I let the waitress know and she said the Manager would take half off my meal, which seemed unfair, considering that I ate a few bites of shrimp, fearing that would be raw also.

I did write to the Manager and he apologized but I am still feeling a bit ripped off. I paid $70 for two flights of margaritas, barely any food plus tax and tip.

I wanted to like this place so much. I have spoken with many other people who have had d experiences for dinner but said that brunch was phenomenal. I may go back and try it because I really did love the ambiance there.

We had 1:00 pm reservations. We did not get seated until 1:50 pm. It appeared that the folks seated at our reserved table sat and chatted for quite a while pass their designated time. It would have made sense for the hostess to have informed them of pending reservation holders. This happened to several other parties waiting, so they left. The service during our seating was extremely slow, which also impacted several in our party to leave sooner than we planned. We understand that there are worker shortages, however this greatly reduces our dining experience.

We had reservations for 12:45 & we arrived on time. We were told it would be a little bit of a wait. Finally at 1:30 I had to ask what the issue was, why take reservations if you are still making people wait. The reason we were waiting is because they didn’t want to tell the people seated at the table that they needed to leave. Also a 1pm reservation with the same amount of people as us (6) was seated before us, why??? Once we were seated it took forever to get food & the appetizers & food all came at once. The only positive experience was the staff was friendly and polite. We have ate here numerous times & it was always wonderful so even tho it wasn’t a great experience I would come back and try one more time … everyone has bad days!

The service was mediocre. Took over an hour to bring out the appetizers which were only calamari and stuffed quahogs. Almost all the meals where cooked wrong and one of the meals the waitress rung in wrong. Was very disappointed especially since a table that sat down after us got their meals before we even got appetizers that where put in before they even sat down. Some side dish where cold with the meals. Probably won’t go back again.

I’d highly recommend RiverHouse. It’s something different and NICE in an area that desperately needs a nice restaurant. Great food choices - not the usual fare. Very interesting decor - again, not the typical. Delicious specialty drinks.
