Great Atmosphere and Good Food

Located at the end of Route 115 behind the marina it can be hard to find. Go around the back park by the boats and all the other cars and look for the entrance. Can't miss it. Years ago this used to be the Cannery and it was my favorite place to go. It changed hands and was renamed Royal... read more

We didn't particularly like the new decor. We loved the old look, and here we were in easy chairs that were just a bit too low for the table. Our appetizer, fried calamari, was over-breaded and stayed too long in the fryer. But wait! What idiot orders fried food in a restaurant like this? They should take the calamari and... More

I went to lunch with some friends one of whom is allergic to soy. All the breads and oil they cook in has soy which left her with only a salad to eat safely. The tuna tartar was meager with thin slices of tuna and no greens. The atmosphere is great though and the server was very good.

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 food suffered a bit and... 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.
