River House Restaurant & Raw Bar
The experience was nice but our server Kayla made it over the TOP! She was so knowledgeable and sweet and every time I come I would like to have her as our server. Thank you Kayla!!
Went for all you can eat crab. Crab was great! The two sides you get is cold potatoe salad and cow slaw. Neither were good. I have never heard of serving cold sides with hot crab legs Plus after your first plate they bring one claw at a time. Not really worth the money
Had an absolutely wonderful experience with this restaurant. Food and service were both superior.
Everything was wonderful! We have been here many times and I think this night was one of the best! Wonderful service and food! I had the Shrimp & grits dish and my husband had the special smoked steak with raw oysters to start. The baked Brie appetizer was also very good! We enjoyed it all! Highly recommend for those wanting to enjoy delicious seafood with a southern twist in KY!
Food very salty.
The River House exceeded my expectations. Every staff member was friendly and knowledgeable. The food variety was more extensive than expected and the food was amazing in taste and presentation. The desserts were among the best I've ever had. We'll be back!
Absolutely loved it. They seated us in a room further back in the restaurant that was quieter than the front main room which was fantastic, as we could hold conversations with everyone in our party of 10.
Great food, wonderful service, as always with Chef John Varanese. We brought friends here who had never been and they enjoyed it immensely!
Excellent as always although the bar drinks seem to be very small compared to the high cost of them.
Yet again, River House shows why they are my favorite restaurant in Louisville. The service was spot on, the food was amazing, and they even surprised me with a dessert for my birthday.
It was a fantastic experience that did not disappoint. Fabulous fresh seafood and the service was awesome.
The food and service were excellent. The view is beautiful.
There was 11 of us that ate here and the service was outstanding! Most of us had the all you could eat crab...fantastic and their oysters on the half shell were wonderful! It is a little pricey, but worth every penny!
Food very good—service from Clay, our server, was excellent—enjoyed ourselves immensely—
Swanky. Nice. Oystery.
Love everything about River House! Jade, Courtney, and friends are all great! Wonderful food! Never had a meal I didn't love! Especially love the fried green tomatoes and fresh fish dishes!
This was our 3rd visit, but the first for our OOT guests from NC. Booked for my Birthday for 6 people. I had ask for a quiet area and we were seated in a beautiful room by the window. It was all great! We tried a variety of appetizers, salads, entrees and drinks. Everyone was pleased with their meal. Our server was Lexus and she could not have been more attentive. Thanks for a memorable Birthday! RW
The Oysters Rockerfeller were the best we’ve ever had - Gulf seafood is our favorite!
It was outstanding! Went with the intention of getting seafood, and my husband did - he got the lobster special and loved it, but I went with one of the red meat specials- smoked ribeye and was literally melt in your mouth. Our service was over the top. Joey was attentive, and suggesting at just the right moment, but not annoying. It was a great meal and great dining experience! Will return!
The best salmon with sides that I have ever had. My husband loved the pork loin with sides. Loved the ambience-nothing is like looking out the large windows at the river. The staff’s Service was superb and genuine. It was such a wonderful place to go for our anniversary. Also, it was easy to set my reservation online.
Service was excellent! The butterfish was cooked perfectly and absolutely wonderful. Oysters for appetizer also good. Enjoyed the meal.
My friend had never been here...a bucket list item of hers. She got the grouper Po Boy with chips and thought it was just okay. I ordered the Fried Avocado with Seafood Salad. I thought I would be getting pieces of seafood, shrimp, scallops and crab over greens. What I got was the consistency of tuna fish. Not bad but not what I wanted. My fault for not having it explained. We enjoyed our riverside table and our server, Lexie, I think, was right on it. We will return as the menu had quite a few other choices we wish to try another time.
Grilled Oysters were great. Shrimp Po Boy was very good also. Truffle French fries were over cooked and served cold. We had a very good waitress. Our reservation was made through open table but the Restaurant claimed to open table that we didn’t show up. We heard from open table and got that mistake corrected. I’m not sure how attentive the hostess who sat us was. Prices were fair and for the most part the food was good. If I was in the area, I might go back.
Came to Riverhouse for my birthday dinner I had the blacked shrimp and crab quesadilla. The food was amazing and the desserts were even better! My table (a 14 top) ordered several and tried three different desserts, all were spectacular. Would recommend!
Server only came to the table about 4 times of us being there for 2 hours.
Amazing! many people for a Monday all you can eat crab leg night and as expected the service was outstanding. The crab was hot and fresh, they didn’t waste any time getting a reorder in and out to you. Overall a great night I will be back many more times! The quality of food, service and atmosphere is what I expected, and for the price totally worth every penny! Excellent job!
Went for Sunday brunch for mother's 93rd birthday. We all had omelets, which were very good & very large, served with fried potatoes & biscuit. Potatoes were dry. Cornbread served before meal was excellent. Only 1 brunch menu but 4 regular menu, so we had to share the brunch menu. Coffee was very good. Comped with a dessert of 4 small slices of cake with whipped cream, a bit of chocolate sauce & a halved strawberry with a few blueberries was very good. Prices were reasonable. Nice view of the river from some of the seating.
Our server was outstanding and the food delicious!
Amazing food , had a quality time , had a very good soothing vibe plus it’s on the water
Always delicious with excellent service. Calamari was the best I have ever had, charred but tender. Entree might have lost 1/2 star - flavors weren't strong, fresh herbs not found. But the sweet potato biscuit desert was the perfect balance...not too sweet and really yummy :)
The ambience and service were good. My meal and my daughter’s meal was tasty but my husband’s meal was not good. The fish was greasy and the sauce was nasty.
$13.00 for a 6 oz. on the rocks Margarita is ridiculous!
Wonderful food and ambience
We had the Beef Medallion special. Tender, juicy medallions done med rare. Very good. Server was pleasant. A good experience.
Food, service, & drinks!! All great...
Food too greasy. Too few choices for lunch sandwiches
great service and wonderful food......this is my favorite restaurant in Louisville!!
Good food and service, stellar spirit selection!
My brother was in town, so my husband and I took him to his favorite place to eat in Louisville. Of course he ordered Chesapeake Bay oysters as did I. They were delicious.
Service was great, food was great, evening was great. Thanks River House.
We visit The River House often, and it is always consistently good. The service on this occasion was prompt, friendly and knowledgeable as always.
I ordered a special item of Hawaiian Ono, which I have had at River House (and other places) several times before. Although I expected it to be rare, this time it was ice cold and too raw for me to eat. I asked for it to just be "flashed" enough to warm it, and the server promptly took it away. When it came back it was at least MW, and cooked thoroughly, which was not my intent. I explained this, and that since we were in a hurry I would keep it as it was. The dish was still good, but just not what I expected. Fortunately when we finished dinner the manager stopped by and informed me that she had removed half the cost. That was unexpected and I appreciated her concern and interest in our returning. We will certainly do that soon, but I may order something else.
