Awesome ! Pork tenderloin with butternut squash was phenomenal and a good value
Unacceptable loud music noise coming from the the Kingfish restaurant.
Our party of six had a 7 pm reservation. We were seated promptly at a table on the patio with a very pretty view of the river. Our server was Jen and she came quickly to the table to take our drink orders. Jen was friendly, polite, and attentive the entire evening and the food was outstanding. Don't be afraid to try the grilled octopus! Delicious! I can't wait to return to River House!
Perfect date for our 18th wedding anniversary! Made it very special.
Food was very good. Atmosphere was great. Really enjoyed eating outside on the patio. Service was outstanding.
We stopped by River House while traveling through Louisville. Judging by reviews it seemed a relaxing spot along the river and the perfect place for lunch. It really was! We absolutely loved it!! The decor and ambience outside (inside as well when we walked through) was just lovely. Krissi was amazing and very attentive. We never felt rushed. Krissi suggested some really wonderful drinks and dishes! The seafood was cooked well and the dessert ice cream was DELICIOUS. We highly suggest the banana ice cream! Thank you all again for a great experience. We will absolutely dine here again and will suggest your spot to everyone we know traveling through Louisville. Thanks!!
Food, drinks and service where excellent
Fantastic as always!! Great food and great service! They always make a celebration a wonderful experience!
Fast service, the food was great and the server was very knowledgeable.
The food is fantastic! Best octopus have ever had.
Food was not what we was expecting. Had a large lump of fat on my short rib and had no flavor. Grouper cheeks tasted like tofu. Water was room temperature and corn bread came out after our meal was almost done. Best part of the meal was the alcohol.
We had a great overall experience at River House. Food was well done. Service was timely, friendly, and helpful. I do believe we were forgotten at check-in, but a subtle reminder remedied that quickly.
Absolutely delicious! Service was on point as usual. Never disappointed, great staff and management 😁
Me encantò el lugar.Muy bonito,acogedor.Buena atención,el sabor de la comida,la cantidad también.Solo es un poco caro,pero me encantaría volver
Every diner in our party of 7 raved about their meal.
Delicious dinner. Gorgeous view. Wonderful service.
Hands down one of the best dining experiences I have ever had. Andrew was an impeccable server and the quality of the food was excellent! We will absolutely be back again!
It was a lovely setting and the food was delicious.
Ellie was personal and effective. Loved the food.
Lovely dinner. Fantastic service!! Carson rocks:)
We went for my mothers birthday (who is wheelchair bound) the staff was very accommodating and the food was delicious. The only think that could’ve made it better was a couple more local beers to choose from. Excellent time and excellent food. We WILL be going there again!
Wonderful atmosphere, food and waiter!! Our party of eight enjoyed a delicious meal and our waiter was the wonderful...informative and attentive without overstepping. Surf and turf, king crab and dinner specials were all terrific and bread pudding to finish off the night. It wasn’t cheap but worth every penny. Felt like we were on vacation....we will be back!!
Riverhouse is one of our favorites! Never disappoints!!
Always great food and service
All very good. Pricier than expected.
Wonderful atmosphere on their covered patio. Good and service was perfect. My husband snd I both ordered the smoked old fashioned and the scallops with grits. Sooooo good. We recently moved to the area and this is definitely a new favorite date night spot!
Fantastic seafood and very affordable.
Great food great service it’s a regular stop for us !
Out server Andrew was OUTSTANDING! He made our experience amazing. He went above and beyond what servers job is and quite frankly we only want Andrew when we go back. We also need Andrew to work at some other restaurants. He was personable, understanding, funny, and attentive. River house needs to give him a raise! He also praises his teammates and is a positive influence on all the other team members. What a privilege and a pleasure to sit in his section! Make sure if you to River House to ask for Andrew!
Fantastic service. Amazing food. We will definitely return!
Fried green tomatoes are the best I’ve had—adding bits of goat cheese and bacon made the dish a stand out. Lump crab cakes not so much—texture of baby food with no lumps in sight. Tasso ham grits just as they should be. Bourbon peach with ice cream dessert worth the calories!
At 95 degrees, too hot to eat outdoors to enjoy the river view, a definite draw for out of towners
The food was very good! All of the staff was pleasant. We made reservations and I added to the online reservation that it was our anniversary and the gentleman that greeted us as we pulled in ask about a reservation and when found ours he wished us a happy anniversary! Nice touch!
one of our steaks was under cooked, we sent it back and when it came back it was over cooked
I ordered a glass of wine to be served with my meal (never got it)
Not much to look at. We were seated in a booth at the front of the restaurant. Our server Maddie was exceptional. The wine choices were nice and the choice of entree's was wide. There was just something missing for the prices on the menu. Things were just not up to snuff or let's say off for that price range. There was no view, no ambiance and no warmth.
Making reservations was easy, we wanted outside and deck was shaded and had fans going. Waiter was very knowledgeable about the menu and helped recommend items and substitutions. Specials were great and so were the cocktails. So cool to see the chefs picking herbs for the meals right from the deck. Excellent view of the Ohio river.
My moms 91st bday. Great waitress, Maddi, Amanda the bartender. Everyone enjoyed food, drinks, fun employees making sure she had a great experience! We will definitely be back. Our new favorite place to dine! Thanks to all
Fantastic food! Amazing service! Wonderful atmosphere! Drinks were made just right! Was a wonderful evening with friends, made even more so by your professional staff and perfectly prepared food!!
Overall very enjoyable. Smoked Burbon Old Fashion was very good
It was a much better experience than we had a few yrs ago
We took out of town guest, service and food great. One of our favorite places in Louisville.
Andrew, is the BEST waiter I’ve ever had. The 5 friends and I enjoyed his shenanigans, smooth talks about food and life and the little surprises he had in store for us. You have got to get this guy as your waiter. Seriously. You won’t regret it.
