Guthrie's is the best place to eat in Burnside for sure! The food is good - I love the Southwestern Grilled Chicken Salad! The salmon is also good. The prices are a little inflated, but not horribly. Some of the servers are very attentive, some could use some a little refresher course. All in all, I like it enough to... More

The servers were clear that whatever would facilitate their serving the table was a priority. What this really means: Don't have any needs. We were with a big party (50 ppl) and were given two servers. Poor management in my view. Food was so-so.

Seafood was good but steaks looked skimpy. Appetizers are fair. Service is very good but nothing special as far as the menu. No pork ribs which was a disappointment.

I had the ribeye, my fiance had the salmon special. We were both really pleased, and will definitely be back. It's hard to get something special in Somerset (or Burnside), but the River House is the exception to that rule.

Went here on a double-date for prom. It was an good place to go for that because it's a bit of a fancy place and was expensive but not unreasonable. Lovely view of the lake, good service. It is your basic fancy restaurant. The place is rarely busy, which could be a pro or con depending on if you like... More

This is a great place to eat. The service is great, you come in once and they remember who you are. The food is good. One thing I would like to see changed is the menu. It has been the same for awhile. The bartender Nathan is great, very attentive and if you have been there before, when he see's... More

Wonderful Food and nice atmosphere! We found this little jewel by accident. When we arrived the staff were very friendly and the atmosphere was just right for a nice evening. We had the ribeye steak which was perfect!

The food here at the River House is good. The steaks are great but I cant say that I think they are better than Texas Road House. The only draw back in my opinion are the prices are a little on the expensive side. You do get the nice atmosphere and the view of the lake. In warm weather there... More

My husband and I just moved to the area and wanted to celebrate our 40th anniversary at a really nice place. From the reviews, we chose Guthries River House. Although it was raining, we chose to sit on the patio and really enjoyed the view. However, after pointedly asking the waiter about the freshness of the fish, to which he... More

This is the best restaurant in and around Somerset, KY. Great view of the lake with partio seating. Steaks and ribs are the best! Great service.
