Table didn’t have enough settings and took awhile to get. Waitress didn’t keep up with empty glasses. Mashed potatoes came out ice cold. Steaks were not cooked to requested temp.

Food prices went way up since the last time we were there. The service was lacking a bit also. We were not offered any appetizers. We will not ever go back there.

Went for the 3 cluster of cab legs for $20 plus one free ! We ordered it ant they told us it wasn’t on the menu anymore that they are now $10 for one cluster ! I showed them there own ad on my phone and it didn’t make a difference. Very slow service and wasn’t very full ! We took our appetizer to go and left and went to TJ Rockwell’s !

First of all, Riverhouse isn't anywhere near the river. More like a roadhouse on the side of Harrisburg Pike. Food was pretty predictable bar food, although the.special I had. (Ahi tuna tacos) was exceptionl: perfectly seared, and a generous portion. The salsa was a little overpowering,.heat-wise, for the delicate tuna. We were celebrating our sons birthday and although the dining room was nearly empty,.service was pretty bad (even with a trainer/trainee pair of servers). Oh, and the bathroom...ugh. The.ladies had only 1 working toilet and the working stall had the wall kicked in. Classy. We would probably go again, but it's not on my top list of restaurants.

Real nice place. We were there in February but can’t wait to go for the seafood buffet. The patio looks real nice and we look forward to going during warm weather to sit outside. The portions were very large and the food was real good. I had the River House shepherds pie and it was awesome. We live about 90 minutes away but it was well worth the trip.

Our food was very good, surprisingly even better than we hoped for, which I asked to be passed along from our server to the cooks. Our server, Amanda, was excellent. Very attentive, friendly, anticipated issues we hadn't thought about , and overall, she was there when we needed her. I would ask for her as our server if we came back for another larger (or smaller) group occasion, but our last few times we were here our servers were great, too! (It's been long enough, though, that I can't recall their names.) Thanks for a great night out celebrating with family!

Good food, decent service. Server delivered sides way before crab legs so wasn't comfortable eating sides, was hot outside & sides sat awhile. Could've delivered all you can eat crab legs faster, kept waiting for more. Overall, food was good & server was courteous. He was busy that evening.

The Food is great and so is the staff.They have a super selection of beer as well as drinks. We started to meet there with my husbands siblings because the location is convenient for all of us but now we keep going back again and again . The outdoor space is very nice.
I highly recommend this place.One thing I would like to see would be cushions on the outdoor chairs.

We made a quick reservation Sunday night before memorial day at 7:50 for 8:45. We were at a micro brew that said they were only doing appetizer so I picked the closest place. Two of us got the filet wrapped in bacon and the girls got a salad in a bread bowl (sorry I don't know what it was called) and the other a burger of some sort. I have to say that even though we were the last ones there for dinner
The food still came out how we ordered it, hot and very good. I'll definitely go back again. It has a bar restaurant atmosphere but I'd put the food up against any other restaurant out there. Thanks for the good service and great food.

All was good. The only concern is that I made reservations for 6pm through open table app and we didnt get seated until 6:45pm which was frustrating because that was the purpose of reservations so you do t have to wait.

Our server was excellent, she had a great attitude and you could tell she just loved her job. The food was good, my husband had the fish and chips and i had a bite and excellent, wish i had ordered that. I had the ribs and they were good, but the fish and chips were excellent. Will go again next year when in the area.

We went for all you can eat wing nite. The wings were very good and there's a nice selection of sauces. There were also 1/2 price craft beer BOTTLE/CAN only though, that was not clear and ended up paying full price for craft drafts. They really need to have a daily specials page as we were not clear on all the options. Wings were a little slow to come out and second orders only come with 5. We will definitely be back! We have been there on the patio last year which is very large and nice! Orange crushes were good, but expensive.

The food was terrific and the service even better. It was a Tuesday for the grilled cheese and soup special. At least 6 grilled cheese sandwiches to choose from and the shrimp soup was outstanding. It's not your typical grilled cheese, much, much better. We will be back for more.

Nice spot, but the shrimp stir-fry and shrimp alfredo were disgusting. The stir-fry had no flavor and the alfredo was more like alfredo with garlic, hold the alfredo.
