Food is plain and way overpriced . Some people like it because of the salad bar which is extremely ordinary . I have never understood the great reviews this restaurant has always gotten . The steaks are good but nothing special. It's on the water but you can only see it from the outdoor tables where they don't serve dinner... More

but once Florida season ended, the prices climbed a few more dollars on the entrees. The River House is not a $51 dollar filet mignon restaurant - regardless of the service. Their bar is not a $14 per martini - regardless of the view. I guess my main grip after coming here since they opened, is the minute season is... More

A friend and I went there for a saturday night ladies dinner. Quite the scenic view with professional friendly staff and the freshest fish in the area. Nice wines by glass too. The kitchen will prepare any dish (or almost) to your liking. My friend was lactose intolerant and they went all out for her.Can't wait to return.

My husband and I went here recently to celebrate our wedding anniversary. It was a wonderful experience. The staff is professional and very attentive and the food is above average. My Macadamian crusted yellowtail snapper was reasonably priced and delicious. My husband ordered a bone in filet. It was quite pricey, but cooked to perfection. Meals come with one side... More

Had a very nice meal of shrimp and crab along with a filet and baked potato. Good salad bar and seafood soup. (Less potato in the seafood soup would be a plus). Great drinks and a very nice river atmosphere. Enjoyed it all.

This is what I call a classic restaurant. Beautiful views and a classic setting. We had a group of 8. We were waited on my a team of people who took turns checking in. They were attentive but I found the team thing a bit different. The food was very good and the portions fare. I had the triple tail,... More

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
