We like the Royal River Grillhouse, but this visit wasn't so good. The inside of the restaurant had a complete makeover and it looks great. New chairs, bar area and its more open which gives it a nice atmosphere. However, I think all the upgrades made the menu prices go up. The quality of the... read more

We were very excited to have lunch here and watch the boat traffic on the Royal River. The place was very busy, and the service was prompt, but the food was not inspired. It is definitely worth going for cocktails, just to watch the comings and goings at the marina.

This is our go-to place on the water, close by and always serving delicious food. Their Sunday jazz brunch is always great.

My family loves the Royal River Grillhouse. It's small, well chosen menu has something for everyone, and the food is always exceptional. I'm partial to their steaks and salads.

If you'd like a wonderful view, both inside and out (the bar is a special treat!) then this is your go to place. The menu is varied, food is very good, the wait staff attentive and professional.

Got the fried oysters. They looked great, but tasted terrible. Drinks were way over priced.Great location.

The restaurant has a great menu, and I've never run into an issue waiting for a table. The restaurant also has a great view of the river where it begins to meet the ocean.

This restaurant has so much potential in terms of location/view but I have tried both Sunday brunch and most recently lunch and for the cost it is for me a disappointment. The Greek steak salad was unappealing in presentation and taste. The four steak tips placed on the salad bed were tough and tasteless. The feta cheese was clumpy.To be... More

A charming, typical New England property situated on the Royal River. The interior is warm, inviting and comfortable, the staff, friendly and attentive and the menu filled with delicious choices. I ordered the oysters to start and the salmon as a main course, finishing up with an espresso. I will most certainly return for more in the near future.
