Great Old establishment on the Intracoastal!

Always a great steak dinner and wonderful salad bar. But ask for bartender Derik and experience some of the best drinks you will ever have!

This old restaurant has been here for years, and it's still solid. The featured beef and seafood is all well-prepared, sides are generous, and the salad bar is a delight. The wine list is a bit pricey, but well-rounded. The restaurant is on the bank of the Intracoastal Waterway, and the walls of glass makes for restful, comfortable dining. There's... More

River House has always had great food and excellent service. You can't go wrong ordering a steak. Seafood is always good. The salad bar is extensive, if you like salad bars. The River House coffee is a must! Valet parking. Beautiful water views.

My wife and I hadn't been in years (no particular reason--just have our favorites), but wanted to try somewhere we hadn't been in a while. We went with a friend and the atmosphere, service and food could not have been better. I had the NY strip--a huge piece of prime beef grilled perfect with au poive sauce, potato and salad... More

My best friends were there for their birthday dinner a week ago. I wanted to surprise them with either dessert or pay the bill for them. The lady at the desk could not be bothered either looking for their names or for them specifically finding them in person. "she was too busy" All and all an amazing restaurant, great food,... More

The River House is one of the best in Palm Beach Gardens. Always great service and fantastic food. I have never had anything but a great dining experience. Wonderful location on the intercostal waterway.

The River House is our go-to steak house in West Palm. Only once in our 12+ visits over the year's did I have a steak not perfect. The location, the service and food make this a great place to enjoy a meal with either your spouse, family or friends.

We like to go here to have a drink by the water. The food is "fine dining" and priced accordingly so be ready for that. More a meat/steak place but they have many really good seafood dishes - get one of the daily specials.

The view is okay but I have seen better. This place is always very crowded and difficult to talk in. The hype here is large and I don't see why. The food is decent but overpriced.
