Food was very good with great options for gluten free etc. Only complaint was my daughter asked for no cheese and it arrived with cheese. So while I ate the kitchen had to make hers over again. Server was very friendly and attentive. Wine selection is good as well.

I had the prime rib which was great but I am not particularly a meat person so I am not a good test of how great it was. The horse radish was nice! The salad and veggies where nice. The desert was OK but not wonderful. Wine was good. Service was good.

A perfect evening with friends - good food, friendly service and an outstanding view of the water! We sat out on the patio over looking the river and were served promptly and not rushed when we sat to talk over our tea and coffee. The desserts looked great but we were too full to try them☹️

We were visiting the area to bird watch at Reifel Migratory Bird Sanctuart. I had the peach lemonade mocktail with seafood Club sandwich. My husband had the house white and pan fried oysters. We shared the cheesecake with strawberries. Everything was excellently prepared. Beautiful view of the water.

Silly, but I made a reservation for 6:00 and had that confirmed. However, when we arrived at 6, the waitress said she had us down for 5:30 and she had just called our home to see if we were coming. Well, I assured her we are here. So some sort of glitch with the computer program.

Food was excellent, nice evening beautiful sunset. The pub has been nicely renovated but we ate in the wine room I was a little chilly in that room but they had heaters placed around the room. They were a little understaffed, but we were looked after nicely and had a wonderful evening

We had to wait 2 hours for our meals. My husband had to go and find the server to bring us a
second cup of coffee and all the servers were all in the River House Pub as there were more
customers in there. No we were all very annoyed. A couple came in 45 min. after we did and
they got their meals right away.

While the pub is under renovation the restaurant has the bar moved in which changes it a bit. Looking forward to trying this restaurant again after the pub is back Feb 2018 and they’ve moved out of the restaurant.

Was totally disappointed it was a New Years date, first date and it was like eating in a cafeteria setting. I think I would have preferred to eat at White spot. Their Kale salad had greens a couple of small scoops of garbonzo beans, no comparison to anywhere else. My dates portion was child size and he is a big man. Totally disappointed!

Took a colleague here for a Christmas lunch. We were seated next to a very large noisy group so it was difficult to have a conversation. It took nearly an hour for our food to arrive but when we finally got it, it was delicious. Our server was very friendly and we understood how very busy she was. I would definitely come back again, but will choose a quieter time of year

Service was slow to start, after that acceptable. Servers are friendly which adds to the relaxing atmosphere. Food was average, and for that a touch too expensive. The good thing is that it is not noisy, so one can have a conversation while eating or afterwards. The setting is good, parking plentiful and so you get away from the huzzle and buzzle of downtown or more centrally located restaurants.

My wife's salmon burger was good.
My Ribs were warmish, at best and the coleslaw was at room temperature (should have been cool or cold).
The service was minimal with no water refills and my wife had to go find the waitress in order to get a finger bowl for the ribs (it arrived cold).

We so enjoy the Riverhouse.. Always a good meal and always a pleasant greeting..Outside or inside you can' go wrong.
Their Citrus salad dressing is to die for...
would like to see a larger version of their side salad as it is very tasty..
Seafood club is a winner...

Before submitting this review, I did submit an email to the restaurant, to which I didn't receive a response. Let's start with the good. The view is amazing, and the patio is spectacular. I've been several times, and if you're going for beer and a burger, or appies on the patio, it's a good choice. However, if you're going for the restaurant and a nice dinner, the Riverhouse has made some cuts recently (between March and now) that are noticable, and detract from the dining experience greatly. We went for a birthday dinner, and we usually order a drink first, then dinner. We said to our waitress that we'll start and when we're about 1/2 way done our drink, we'll order dinner. We were done our drink and waited a good 15 minutes for our waitress to come take our food order. Things were very slow. We had our kids with us, and asked her about the kids prime rib, which we ordered in March. She said no, it's not on the menu, and when we said we'd had it before, she went and asked, and sure enough, it was available. My 12 year old opted for an adult meal, so we didn't have that. But in a nice restaurant, why not give the kids more than chicken fingers? The real bad part came when our meals came. The prime rib, while delicious, came with INSTANT POTATOES. So we paid $39 for prime rib, only to come with fake potatoes? The real kicker is that when you drive in, you have potato fields on both sides of the road. In March, the potatoes were real. So maybe $39 for a meal is not enough to be able to serve real potatoes with your food. At any rate, I am disappointed I never heard back from the restaurant, and hate to slag a local restaurant in the process, but I probably won't be back unless someone tells me they're serving real potatoes. I can deal with a 2 hour dinner but when I am spending top dollar for a meal, I expect everything on the plate to be real, not fake.

We had visited your restaurant several years ago at a friend's suggestion and we enjoyed it. So it has been awhile since we visited. However, we decided to bring that friend for her birthday and were not disappointed. The staff were great and the service was great and we did appreciate the Birthday treat. Thank you
