Mother's Day Menus & Specials
Happy Mother's Day! River House Restaurant & Raw Bar will be offering our brunch menu and our regular dinner menu all day.
The food is never mediocre and always very good. My elderly mother is happy with two vegetarian sides as a meal. They stand on their own and are made to order. I wanted to eat light and enjoyed 1/2 dozen oysters and a salad plus salmon. Almost a “glamping” dinner watching the river and hearing the rain on the tin patio roof.
Great food. Beautiful views!
Great service, beautiful views and the food was delicious.
Hunter our server was very knowledgeable and attentive.
This is a repeat fir sure!
We celebrated our 11th anniversary this weekend with River House. This was our first time visiting this restaurant. Our food and service were beyond exceptional. We will most definitely be back. When we pulled into the parking lot we were greeted with a happy anniversary, and our waitress was absolutely wonderful she made our night great.
Order the Mac and cheese
Love this place! Great food great service. Thanks for the gluten free bread. Wouldn’t have known you had it if the waitress didn’t mention it. Would like some gf designations on the menu.
Delicious food. Wonderful drinks. Fabulous server-she was a delight!
Only issue was it was quite chilly in the dining room.
The food was sub par. Our appetizer was amazing (had a seafood tower) but there were 4 sauces on the plate and none were explained by our server. We had some friends go the night before and sent a picture of their dinner and it looked amazing. Ours not so much. Our steak was purple even though we asked for closer to medium than medium rare. My wife didn’t eat hers and I ate about a 1/3 of mine. Our waitress never asked how the food was and when it came time to pay the bill she just kind of threw it to my wife. It was enough to make us never go back. There are too many great places to eat in Louisville to ever spend another penny there.
Outstanding, as always! The food and the drinks were incredible and the service was top notch! The perfect place to celebrate!!!
Great atmosphere, service, and food
Great atmosphere. Food tasted great and good service. Already made reservations to go back!
Great place. The staff went above and beyond when I needed my phone charged. After a delicious meal we were able to take our drinks to sit in the Adirondack chairs down by the river.
This is one of the best restaurants we’ve been to in a long time. The service, food, and environment were impeccable. Highlights were the fish and chips and the smoked Booker’s Old Fashioned.
Great patio when weather is good! Love the newly covered porch too. However, the birds can be annoying at times. They swarmed a table nearby just after people left, before it was cleared. I know there are way to prevent this bc lots of outdoor places do.
Celebrating a promotion!
Everyone in our dining group was pleased with the outstanding food and service. We dined outside with a view of the river. It was an enjoyable evening.
As always, the food and staff were 100% !! Our office is not far from RH and it is a great place to take visitors from out of town for lunch.
However, this visit had one noticeable issue - curbside appeal. The landscape area around entrance was full of trash. Very unappealing. It was certainly slow this day and the manager should have noticed, stepped up and fixed the situation. This was a top down issue. No issues with the service staff! Enjoy your meal!
I always have a great experience with them ❤️ Relaxing environment and the food is always amazing!
Our 48th Anniversary dinner was magnificent, from firstly, the greeting we received from the Hostess, our waiter, and staff gracefully stopping by our table and congratulating us and making our night and us feel very special. Our choices from the impeccable menu offerings never fails. The view from outside dinning was very nice even if it was just the Ohio River. Jess our waiter, even made our celebration even more special by presenting us with a Commemorative framed photo at the end of our evening, nice touch. The atmosphere was energetic and fun.
Thanks for a memorable 48th

Service was great, drinks and apps were the best part of the meal. The crab cakes were tasteless and the grits were bland. The vegetables shouldn't be mixed with the grits. Overall, too expensive for the quality of the food.
Husband made reservations for our anniversary we got there early was seated immediately. Server was great, outside seating was wonderful and so was the atmosphere. Food was very good and so was our cocktails. Will definitely go back.
Food is always good. The view is always good. Service is always very good.
food was very good. the soup I ordered came out only warm did not have time to wait for another bowl. shareables I thought would come out as appetizer's, but all our food came out all at once. Just thought we could have gotten in and out a little quicker I had an appointment to get to and just barely made it there. Would definitely come again, but on a day when not rushed for time.
They made our anniversary amazing! Everyone wished us a happy anniversary, they treated us to dessert, AND they took our picture and put it in a frame for us!! beautiful scenery and sunset too.
Specializing in seafood, but they have something for all tastes. And it all tastes great! I can't imagine a better location, right on the river. And the restaurant is very large. We were able to get reservations for Easter dinner, and then change them when our plans changed. Service was great. Cannot go wrong eating here.
Our waitress was phenomenal. Very personable and attentive.
Our server was Cassie and she provided great service and was so genuine in taking care of our every need despite having had a wry busy Easter brunch crowd all day.
The food was outstanding as well and so fresh!
Wonderful dinner. The sea food was amazing... lump crab risotto.. yum
Kevin was a fantastic server!
The food was delicious, as it always is. It was a beautiful day and we had an outside table. The view of the Ohio River was spectacular. The service was excellent. Even the manager came to our table to ask if everything was satisfactory.
Sit on the porch. The atmosphere and food was excellent.
Well unfortunately our food wasn’t the same experience it has been in the past few visits. The chipotle mussels were tough and broth was very spicy included limes that were not needed. The oven roasted chicken pasta lacked flavor; the best thing I had was the crab and corn chowder . Very disappointed in this dining experience .
A favorite restaurant of ours! Always a spectacular experience. We sat outside for Easter brunch and it was lovely. Service is outstanding and food is incredible. We just booked our rehearsal dinner here at Savor (venue above River House). Never disappoints!
Great food and service.
We went to Easter Brunch here today. The ceviche was pretty bland, the brussel sprouts were really good, my blt came out with completely burnt black toast on it and when I asked politely to change it the person that delivered it refused (I ate it but I wasn’t impressed) my boyfriend had the crab omelet was just okay (also bland), the French toast was really good! We split a carafe of the blood orange mimosa and it was really good. They serve both the brunch and lunch menu at the same time. I would probably go back for the view alone, but I wasn’t wowed with the brunch for the price.
Good food, Reasonable prices and nice view of the river.
Pleasant day. Sat on the patio. Excellent overall experience. The waiter was busy and on a few occasions was not right there.
Great local chef with fabulous seating options inside and out! Food creative but not fussy, perfect service.
Our appetizers were great. One fish brunch entree was delicious. The other brunch special - steak and eggs was pretty bad. $21.00 for a half plate of fried potatoes, a rubbery egg and a very small, tough piece of beef. Really soured our opinion of the place. The coffee was weak and lukewarm even after asking for a second cup. Our waiter seemed very new to his job, and though he was trying he just he obviously didn’t understand the menu. The location and views are lovely but not sure we will try it again.
