Patio was great! Food amazing
We had great service, ambiance was great too. The food was solid. We had the crab & shrimp toast. Chicken sandwich and roast beef. Cocktails were great too. I tried “el diablo”
Not the best service from the host that seated us and the wait time to place a drink order was almost 30 mins. Our waitress was very nice and did a good job.
We had a great time eating on the patio. We were distanced from other fingers and the food was really good. You are paying for the ambiance but it was such a great day.
Great for a girls brunch - food is always amazing!
Absolutely wonderful! Post COVID service was impeccable! I’m so pleased. We social distanced and everything. Food was was sooo good and fresh!
Lovely patio for outdoor dining!
The service was excellent! My mother and I really enjoy the food and view ! Can’t wait to go back 😋😋
The food is mediocre at best but it's cool setting overlooking the river
Outstanding customer service! Food was great! I recommend getting the monthly Roast special.
Amazing! No other way to describe food, atmosphere, and views.
Incredible food, service and view!!! It's definitely one to put on the favorites list! Eibar was our server and he was excellent!
It was my daughter’s 21st birthday (which I mentioned in the Open Table reservation). Every staff member wished her a happy birthday and they offered her a free dessert. The food was spectacular and the service was great. You can’t beat dining riverside (there is a choice of sitting in a sunny area or shaded area). We chose shaded and the weather was perfect. The entrees are very large for lunch.
Check the menu before you go. With everything going on right now a lot of restaurants are cutting down on menu items which is understandable. We didn’t end up eating because nothing really looked good. We had drinks. Def good but also def pricey for the amount of ice in them. I just wish restaurants would respect customers. If your drinks are quality I will splurge and pay for a $20 drink but it kills me when I feel like everywhere wants to rip you off.
Great meal for Father’s Day. The patio was great. The service was outstanding and was very safe.
Roast chicken, carrots and dirt and mushrooms were delicious. Enough food to take home. Carrot cake was outstanding.
We had a good time, felt very safe, service slow but expected.
Due to covid restrictions, they sat everyone outside at the tables, 6 maximum per table. Beautiful view. Quick service. Good food - got the whole fried chicken which served 4 people no problem. The fried chicken sandwich was also good. Im sad I didnt go here sooner, and will definitely be back!
It was good experience the view was good
Beautiful view. We only had wine and an appetizer but menu/food looked good. Good social distancing. Would be nice if their hand sanitizer was near both stairs and easy to spot.
We had the burrata, oysters and a fried chicken sandwich. Everything was delicious!
My boyfriend and I had a great time dining here. The ambience is everything I wanted. Definitely will be back.
Food was just ok. Service & ambience were great!
Perfect place to enjoy the views of the city and the river!
This was recommended by a friend for our daughters birthday. It was excellent and offered a variety of food as I tend to be a picky eater. Service was very good with all the precautions in effect.
The menu is a bit too limited, but nevertheless the food was good. The lobster burger was delicious. So was the whole fish. The mixed drinks could use a little work, but overall it was a nice chill experience.
It was our first time venturing out and my party and I were pleased with how smooth things ran. We appreciated the scanning of the QR code to access the menu as well as our servers keeping their social distance as well as wearing their mask. Food was quick and delicious, drinks were refreshing -- what a beautiful brunch by the river!
Service was pretty bad; we waited for over 30 minutes just to get our check. Also lacked space heaters for a chillier evening on the patio.
Great service, beautiful patio.
Very clean and respectful of protocols put in place to keep the dining experience enjoyable and safe for everyone! Gorgeous spot on the river!
My girl friends and I came here for brunch. I ordered the chicken and waffles. I really liked that the chicken and the waffle was already cut into pieces (made it less messy and easier to eat). The views were absolutely beautiful. The service was great - respectful, answered our questions, and did not take too long.
I love River Roast! Always enjoy the service and the food.
Amazing food and hospitality. Beautiful view--right on the river!
great place - can't wait to try it outside in the summer
Great river spot, live music, good food! Service was a bit slow but overall, great experience.
Food was fantastic. Chicken was cooked perfectly.
Jordan, our server, was fantastic!!! The food was phenomenal, as usual, and the vibe was great.
Weelends include live blues to gowith your wonderful food and service
We went for Sunday Brunch on March 1st and the food was great, our server was great and the band, Pat Smillie, was great!! We will go back!!
