Not worth the price

We dropped in for a quick meal and sat at the bar because we do not like the main dining area which is too loud, too expensive and we are not fans of "salad bars". Our meal in the bar was ok. We had small dishes and the shrimp was good but the scallops were undercooked

Riverhouse remains my favorite "go to" restaurant for special occasions. This visit we had Grouper in Parchment, a house speciality. The salad bar is well stocked and always delicious. Try the green garlic dressing, it's made in house and you won't find it anywhere else.

MaryAnn and I and our family have been dining at the river house for over 25 years. The Riverhouse is our favorite restaurant in Palm Beach County to celebrate all of our special occasions. The food and the service is always consistently excellent. Brett and Doug always treat our family as though we are there family. We had a lovely... More

After reading previous reviews, I expected excellent service but average food. However, my husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our fish selections. I had the grouper in parchment and it was a very large portion for delicious, moist fish. My husband's salmon was cooked medium, just as ordered. Our friends ordered sirloin steak combos-one with very large shrimps and the other... More

We had our Easter Dinner at the River House, it was 6 of us. Service as always, was outstanding. I love their warm ciabatta bread/cheese spread at the salad bar. Cocktails and wine were great! Cesar salad as appetizer and entrees varied from lamb, to filet and fish/shrimp. All delicious. There was no complaints from our picky party. We continue... More

We asked at our hotel for a nice romantic seafood/steak place. This was the first place the hotel recommended. My advice to anyone in the area is to go to the River House. Even if there is a wait, stay at the bar and watch the boats go up and down the canal. Get the fillet and have it prepared... More

We were so exc ited to eat here based on photos and were seated on the upper deck that provided a lovely view. Their salad bar is very good as well as the bread; however, when it came to the wine menu and meal, it was a disaster. Their $13.50/glass pinot grigio can be purchased at Walmart for $5/bottle. My...

I should preface this by saying that I am from the Northeast, so perhaps my expectations of a restaurant would be different from others. We visited the restaurant on a weekday evening, so there were no reservations accepted, which is frustrating to start with. Accordingly, we made sure we were there at 5pm when they opened. We were seated promptly.... More

Make a reservation and go upstairs. The view is terrific, food is very good but pricey, service was good but initial waitress was a real turnoff ( no personality and started the meal badly) but other service people were much better. Do not miss this place for special occasions.

My husband and I stopped to have dinner at the River House at 7:30 pm. It was very crowded with a 45 minute wait. They suggested we go into the bar and get a drink. We sat at a table in the bar for at least 15 minutes and 4 waiters walked by without stopping . After 25 minutes, we... More
