River House Restaurant & Raw Bar
"V" Style Oysters
½ dozen topped with crab, spinach and artichokes and baked
Seared Diver Scallop (1)
King Crab Legs
steamed or chilled
Crab Legs were small overcooked and took way to long to bring out between plates. After first plate I timed how long till the second plate arrived. 20 minutes. 3 knuckles on the first plate. 2 knuckles on the second and third plate. 1 knuckle per plate from then on. Best time between putting in order to receiving was 20 minutes. Complaint to staff fell on deaf ears. Very expensive bill for the service, amount of food and quality. I would like my money back to be quite honest.
Great food and service, one of our favorites, especially for all you can eat crab legs!
We visited River House for a date night. We hadn’t been out to eat in months, but the all you can eat snow crab legs got our attention.
Our service was PHENOMENAL. We even tipped in addition to the gratuity included on the check.
The food was excellent. We started with oysters from the raw bar. They were fresh and delicious. My wife enjoyed the crab legs, and I had the crispy chicken. All of the food was great; even the house made ice cream was delightful (I recommend the sweet corn).
The environment was pleasing and comfortable. We were able to have enjoyable conversation with having to speak over other patrons or background music, yet we were no distracted by the conversation of others.
We will certainly be back.
Food, service, atmosphere, etc. is always good, but on our last visit staff went to EXTRA-ordinary lengths to serve. Our car wouldn't start in the parking lot and Angie, one of the managers, did everything in her power to help us resolve the issue. It took a long time, and it was my birthday...but despite the frustration and bitter cold it was a great day having someone so caring, competent and selfless to come alongside us. Thank you Angie-Angel!!
We all loved the food and experience. It was amazing.
We really enjoyed River House. Our food was outstanding. We had the Brussels sprouts and seafood tower to start and they were enjoyable. For dinner we had a wide variety in our party from steaks to crab. The fish special was absolutely delicious. Andrew was our server and he was fantastic. No complaints!
Our waitress was very friendly, attentive, and knowledgeable. The charred octopus, seafood pasta and cornbread with sorghum butter was delicious! Can’t wait to come back during warmer weather to try out the deck and river view.
Overall this place offers it all. Great inside and outside space (heated outside for winter) Excellent hourly specials, good service and drink selection.
Food was ok. Lukewarm at best. Waitress was excellent. Deserts were stale. Dinner for two with one glass of wine wasn’t worth $100 plus tip.
My husband and I love this place! We ordered a total of 5 dishes (4 under apps/salads, 1 entree), 2 cocktails, and with a 23% tip came out to $125. That's amazing value in my opinion for some delicious dishes (plus you get complimentary cornbread). Everything had its own significant flavor, yet went together.
It was the first time we had tried the mussels there as I'm not really a fan of chipotle as I feel its usually way too strong, but this was subtle and done really well. The grouper risotto remains my favorite dish - creamy yet not mushy as the vegetables still have a nice bite to them and the shrimp is just cooked perfectly every time. The simple fried green tomato salad I will never pass up! It's. so. good. We only go a couple times a year as we don't normally drop 100+ on one meal, but it's always worth it when we do.
Food and server (Kayla) were excellent! Love the consistency of River House!
Perfect dinner and food, service and ambiance was great!!
The hosts were super friendly and energetic but our server was not.
A great experience. We tried several different appetizers and main courses along with drinks. Our waitress Taylor was outstanding - from food recommendations to drink recommendations she was right on it - you could tell she genuinely loved working there.
Will definitely be a top choice in the future.
It was a nice evening. Host greeted us and congratulated us on Anniversary.
Down side: Ate on covered, heated back patio. Pretty pleasant. Windows were kind of foggy so took way from view of the river. We were right below a speaker so it was a little loud. A number of specials and menu items were already sold out at our 6:30 reservation time. Server said it had been a busy day but probably evidence of a lack of kitchen planning to balance lunch and dinner.
Upside: server Adam was really good. Attentive but not pushy. Knowledgeable and helpful with menu. Food we got (not first choices because of selling out) was solid. Not amazing but quite good. Salad presentations were well done and flavor very good. Smoked Ribeye and a butter fish (pretty small portion) both were tasty. Sides were well prepared. Bread pudding desert was best part of meal. All staff were pleasant and professional. Environment of restaurant is very inviting.
We will return.
Food and service was great. Very pricey. What to expect for seafood.
We have had good experiences at River House in the past, but this time we were seated in the closed in patio - a very sterile room with hard chairs and no view (through the dirty plexiglass) and only hard surfaces so the noise level was high. We were sat next to a very loud table of 6. My husband and I could hardly hear each other. It was about 10 min before we were approached by a server. The service overall was fine once things got going and the food was good.
As usual, River House did not disappoint. Rather, it delighted. The food was incredible and the service both friendly and efficient. Thank you for another great experience!
Always good here. Friendly service; efficient, knowledgeable staff. Nice river views and an all-around pleasant experience!
Food was fantastic as always! Service is top notch. Always a pleasant lunch date with my wife.
Unlimited snow crab night was everything I'd hoped for.
Came in for the Crab special on Monday and had never been to River House before. We were blown away by the meal and service. Would highly recommend and hopefully will be visiting again shortly.
This is excellent fine dining. We came for the all-you-can-eat crab, but have been here before and have always had a great experience. Food never misses!
Raj was a great waiter. We ask for him every time. He is the best
First time there. Great atmosphere, staff was amazing. Food was great. Will definitely be back!
Fantastic experience! Traveling from Atlanta to Indianapolis - stopped here for dinner. So glad we did! It was awesome!
This place is amazing. The food is creative, delicious, and reasonably priced. If I lived in Louisville, I would eat here every week.
Lovely place shall go again.
I was looking for oysters and they were delicious. Love Love Love the fire pits
The staff were phenomenal. Our waiter went above and beyond expectations, and the food was top notch. We will definitely visit again.
Every time we return to River House we are impressed - we had a great "meal" of drinks, appetizers, and the seafood salad - everything was GREAT. If you have not tried their tuna ceviche you are missing out - it's amazing - and the grilled octopus too! Great menu, everything is really good.
Fine we were in enclosed patio area. It was very warm
Good food and great service. The restaurant layout doesn’t flow well and we seemed to run into food runners and servers a lot.
Would like more fish on menus. Sea bass or trout
Delicious! Knew nothing about this place and would never have found it without Open Table.
All of the above
We had the best service and food we could ask for. Truly enjoyed our experience!
