Difficult to reach by phone. Either no answer, put on hold for a long period of time, then dumped into voice mail.

Worst experience we have had there! Bad service! Food was subpar and waited for my meal which was a salad and grilled chicken! Everyone else got theirs! Overall terrible night!

A lovely place to have lunch. Unfortunately, it was cool outside, so had to eat inside, but did have a window table. It is one of our favourite restaurants in the area.

From the start to the end of our evening, all was well done. They have an extended golf cart to ferry people from the parking lot to the entrance of the restaurant. However, the walk on the pier is delightful. Every staff member has smiles and great attitudes. They are really glad to see everyone enjoying the food and the views. Live music at the outside bar for a nice way to watch the sun set. Really happy we are locals and can visit all year round.

Lovely restaurant with really good food. They held our table even tho' we were a little late. Murphy, our server, was awesome and even had a dessert for our anniversary! We were I side because it was a little chilly but it would be great to be outside when it's warmer!

We ate outside under the canopy, and it was delightful. It had been raining, so most people were inside. We loved having the area to ourselves. Also LOVE the $9.00 a bottle Wednesday Wine night. The onion soup and wings were delicious. Our server was perfect. We will be back.

Our waiter, Cale, (apologies for spelling) was very attentive. It was a particularly windy evening to sit outside but we did so he had more to contend with than just his customers! Our meals were delicious. We will return and hopefully the weather will be more cooperative.

Our server Kerry from Pittsburgh deseves mention as her contribution to the dining experience and review was most influential. Her performance ensured our evening was
beyond our level of expectation. The Riverhouse did not disappoint and every menu item ordered was at least average to almost outstanding. You will not regret your visit!

Been here many times but this wasn't one of the better experiences. The chowder was not hot and we sent it back twice. My favorite dish is the butterfish and it too was served not hot. The bread was not fresh. Nice restaurant but a bad night.p

We love the food, decor and location on the water. We had a 3:00 p.m. reservation, but had to wait awhile before we could be seated. The hostess said the people at our table had been there 2 and a half hours and they were waiting for them to leave. After seated and our orders taken, we had to wait a very long time before our food arrived. We asked if we could at least have bread or crackers while we waited which our waitress brought. We ended up being there a total of 2 hours just to finish our meal.

This was the first time we sat inside due to chilly weather. Ordered the same fish and chips and this time it was not very good. Chips were undercooked and over salted and the fish, heavily battered and over cooked. Hard to eat. I will go back but not for awhile.
