The food was well prepared, the menu was eclectic and the service attentive. Check out the specials as they go fast! The pork chops were tasty and the sage pasta was delicious but the skirt steak was a little tough. BYO. Hint: park behind the Wells Fargo bank.

We have been dining here for years now and have friends from Bucks County who drive to meet us there as they have always felt this is way above the average dining establishment in their area. Ironically in Bucks County they have a quite a few too choose from, so River Market is competing in a competitive environment and coming... More

Small, intimate restaurant with excellent food. BYOB. Make a reservation or you will not get a table. Dinner is very different than lunch. Lunch serves the high school and work crowd with sandwiches, soup, salads. At night, the food is upscale American...delicious.

Great lunch selection salads are fresh!! Husband and I had a lot of sandwich's here. Only disappointment was the chicken burrito. It was rubbery and had that strange old chicken taste. This was the only bad meal we had of about 5 visits there. Sometimes the service can be slow but a good place overall. Dinner selection is more limited.... More

This is a small, downtown establishment that packs a huge punch when it comes to flavor. My favorite item on their rotating menu is the scallops! Definitely some of the best I've ever had. I think for the quality of food and flavor profiles you get in each dish, it is worth the little extra you pay. Quality goes a... More

We have been to the River Market many times and have never been disappointed. The menu is very creative, everything is fresh and the prices are so reasonable. Just reading the menu gets your juices flowing and all the dishes are as good as they sound. It's a small, cozy restaurant on Main Street, adored by the locals of all... More

Stop in on a dreary Monday for a late lunch and was greeted by a very friendly staff. Ask a few questions about the menu which she answered . Had the coliflower soup and it was great then fish tacos. Everything was fine and I will return.
