always delicious, always great service

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.

Situated by a marina on the Royal River, the Grillhouse has terrific views, and food that lives up to the views. Although the oysters and other seafood are local and fresh, and well prepared, the menu extends beyond seafood. The duck was excellent. Monday offers a variety of half-priced wine, which are good values. Enjoy!

We was recommended by the local after the lobster pound were closed after the Columbus Day. Hoping that the Grillhouse might have lobster in their menu. Unfortunately, lobster were not available either. We ended up ordering the clam chowder, mussels in wine sauce, and filed calamari. To top it off, we each had a glass of their White House wine....
