Octagon welcomes guests to a lively gathering place where tales are told, laughter lingers in the air, and nothing is taken too seriously. Cocktails, food and life are shared in this social hub.

Always such a friendly amiable welcome upon entering The Studio. The menu has something for everyone and is eclectic even incentive. The bisque was complex and very tasty while the rare tuna was high quality with a wasabi dipping sauce that was just the correct level of spice. We ordered the scallop and ravioli selection snd the grouper stuff with fresh shrimp in a beurre blanc creme. Both dishes cooked to perfection. Just scrumptious! We added a couple of inventive crafted cocktails snd this was a perfect evening.

About the restaurant
River House does have a dressy casual dress code consisting of no shorts, flip flops, baseball hats or tank tops in the dining room for the gentlemen. Comparable attire for the ladies. Children under 16 are exempt. We do offer complimentary pants to guests that may need them.
River House corkage policy is a maximum of 3 bottles per reservation without management consent at $35 per bottle.
River House has a 24-hour cancellation and No-Show Policy consisting of $25 per person plus a 18% SVC Charge.

In the South, there’s an intimate connection between the table and the land. Our fertile soil feeds corn and cattle. The palmettos provide cover for quail and game. And the ocean provides its bounty with the incoming tide. The River House is a culinary celebration of this relationship and our professed love for the land and waters of the Lowcountry.
