It is south of Somerset and on the river... Awesome food. We had a very fun waiter. The service was great and so was the food. You have a great menu to choose from. Would definitely eat there again

Although the service was slow, the food makes up for it. If you're looking for something other than Big Boys and Corrals, this is the place in the Somerset area. The nachos were amazing and the salmon was perfectly cooked. Leave room for their mini desserts!

Was in Somerset for a week and we went to Guthrie's twice for dinner because it was very good and the location is just beautiful. Both times my colleague and I went for the specials and were rewarded with tasty and creatively served fish dinners. the sauces were gentle and delicious and the sides and garnishes were good. The wine... More

This restaurant was a nice surprise. I had dinner on the patio, and the view was spectacular. The atmosphere outside was mellow, not snooty. The food was a good value. They offer small plates of many of the popular entrees; something I wish more restaurants offered. The desserts are also "mini desserts." I had fresh rolls, salad, pecan-encrusted chicken, dessert,... More

For my husbands birthday because we enjoyed our last visit. This visit left much to be desired. Don't get me wrong the food was great just like last time. It was the service. Our server didn't hardly talk to us, she was slow with our drinks, it took to long to get a Long Island Ice Tea for my husband,... More

The service was horrendous. Took forever for the waitress to bring our drinks and you can forget about rolls, the kitchen staff must have been understaffed because it took a very long time for any of our food to get there and then we had to send stuff back because it was undercooked.

Our group of 4 arrived last night at 6:30 pm and were seated immediately. We were seated by the window with great view of the lake. Appetizers ordered were crab dip and crab cakes which were very good. Entrees ordered were sirloin with bourbon glaze which was excellent, cooked to order. My wife ordered the 5-5-5 shrimp with au gratin... More

I recently stayed in the area and Guthrie's River House was highly recommended so I had high expectations. Unfortunately they were not met. Our server appeared to be very tired and provided lackluster service. The young male server at a nearby table however appeared to be very knowledgeable and enthusiastic, telling the patrons about specials and recommending entrees. They have... More
