River House Restaurant and Raw Bar is Louisville’s premiere riverfront dining destination. It is the vision of award-winning chef and restaurateur John Varanese and seats 330 in its main dining room, raw bar, and patio. Guests experience a charming “home like” atmosphere as they enter the restaurant from the front porch garden area. Enter through a 20-foot tall by 40-foot wide water wall, and enjoy intimate decor, and a floor-to-ceiling glass wall overlooking the back courtyard and river, River House is open 7 days a week for lunch and dinner. The menu features regional cuisine with a Southern flair and an emphasis on fresh seafood including Grilled Oysters on the Half Shell, BBQ Braised Beef Short Rib, and the Maker’s Mark Bourbon Barrel Smoked Salmon. Our 15 foot raw bar features assorted raw oysters, king crab, and jumbo shrimp. Reservations are recommended. We look forward to serving you!

There was plenty of seats but never sat us. The server forgot some of our ask and was sparse at times. The king crab for a 1lb was $101 which is above the price for a lb of king crab. The salmon and shrimp was not seasoned well. The corn bread and grilled asparagus was the only great food item through and through

I just love sitting outside as they have a great view of the river. Food was delicious and we had plenty of leftovers to take home and enjoy later. Again, service was excellent from the front of the house to those out on the floor.

However everything we ordered was extremely over-cooked. The medium rare burger was more like well done. Pork chop extremely dry, halibut very dry…just poor execution from the kitchen.

The outdoor scenery was nice and it was a good ambiance but the food is terrible. Like the lowest quality meat you can find. My surf and turf pasta had old bad quality meat and 2 small chunks of lobster. Ridiculous.
