Beautiful warm December evening sitting on their outside deck overlooking the River and docked casino ship. Friendly waitress. Full bar menu to choose from at reasonable prices. Three of us opted for fish and chips and the other had shrimp- all were delicious and generous portions For an extra .99 we had a fresh green salad- well worth the visit... More

On a beautiful Saturday sightseeing drive we chose this place due to its waterfront location and the number if cars in the parking lot. (I prefer places popular with the locals) Glad we stumbled across it. Great food and excellent service. Companion chose shrimp basket and reported them to be excellent. I chose the Seared Aji Tuna Tacos. Glad I... More

We were in Port Richey for a couple of nights and ended up at Whiskey River both nights! The service was excellent both nights and when we had happy hour specials the first night, they were both wonderful. We had the shrimp bourbon and the house bisque....both excellent and something we would order again. We had the BEST bartenders and... More

A group of about 20 came here after a rally and enjoyed the food and service. The waitress who served us didn't miss a beat or complain about separate checks. The food served from soup to full dinners was quickly handled to the credit of the kitchen. Nothing was missing and the food arrived hot and ready to dive into.... More

After visiting my father-in-law who lives in the area, we decided to visit Whiskey River, which has become one of his local weekend hangout spots. We could tell that most of the folks there were local to the area and all seemed to be having a good time, enjoying their food & drinks. For us, this was a positive sign... More

This is just a local hang out bar. It's nothing fancy, and can get noisy when the bands play. Having said that I love this place. Happy hour prices are the cheapest I've ever seen any where. Lots of sauce varieties of wings, regular and boneless. Bourbon shrimp is very good. Staff have always been friendly. Best value in town,... More

They hit the nail on the head with their slogan: 'Hard to find. Impossible to forget'. Hard to find: because there are several other cute florida-y restaurants around the same area that would lure you in over this run down shack. Impossible to forget: the 'hard living' clientele. I think most of the ladies there were low-level prosties and perhaps... More
