Food & service is great. Staff is absolutely wonderful. Nice salad bar. Varied menu selections. Portions are too large though. They could cut the portion size and reduce price a bit. But they were very helpful in accommodating our large group.

River House has a fantastic salad bar. At one end of the fresh vegetables, there are two or three loaves of fresh bread for you to slice. At the other end you find salad additions, some unusual: whole scallions, anchovies, dried cranberries, walnuts, and more. There are three blocks of cheese, one of each type waiting for you to slice... More

This restaurant has been on the Intercoastal Waterway and PGA Blvd. for years and years. 30 years to be exact, since 1984. I'm a local, since 1979, and it's been one of my favorites. It has maintained an excellent salad bar when all the other top restaurants have scrapped that idea. I almost always get grouper in parchment. It come... More

There is a reason this place has been successful for over 25 years, it is excellent. Great atmosphere paired with a salad bar second to none. All their menu items are the highest quality. The bone is filet is insane, the swordfish is great, the pork chop tender and moist. The list goes on. I truly have not ever had... More

The food is outstanding, especially the South African Lobster tails and the Chilean Sea Bass. The restaurant is right on the water so the ambiance is great. About a 15 minute drive from PGA National Resort and Spa so a perfect place after a round of golf. Dress is anything from casual to dressy but most everyone I saw on... More

We make a point of making this our fine dining ever trip. Always great service with well prepared meals overlooking the water. They make a great martini and no rush to order, just sat back and relaxed. Prime rib was the special - classic style, really nice and lunch the next day. Grouper with brandy in parchment was a great... More

The River House is a restaurant for special occasions! It was my first choice to celebrate Mothers Day! We enjoyed drinks outside watching the boaters on the Intracoastal enjoy a beautiful afternoon. In fact, I would have been happy to have to have waited a little longer!!! From the menu I selected the macadamia crusted snapper and my husband had... More

Good quality and quantity of food, including decent salad bar - yes they still exist. Food was served warm and cooked precisely as ordered. Service was prompt and friendly. Biggest problem was that prices are on the high side for this type of restaurant. I guess that although Palm Beach Gardens is a real sleepy hole in the wall, there... More
