Recently returned from dinner at The River Inn in Shawnee Resort, and it was delicious. The chef prepared the meal just right. Not only was this done right, but the view from the glass enclosed restaurant was lovely, overlooking the Greens and the Mountains in the background. As this was Fall, the color was spectacular. The service was great and... More

The food here was very good. We chose to sit outdoors on the porch and the view was terrific as well. They also had live music which was very pleasant.

Nice room overlooking the golf course. Breakfast was very good and very relaxing. Dinner was weird. The lighting in the room is far from "romantic" and the food was not impressive. Their bar is great though.

We ate at the River Room July 1. I had lamb Chops and my wife had a beef dish. The beef was supposed to be a tenderloin but it was stir fried and not as advertised on the menu. The lamb chops were in a delicious sauce but the chops were tough and I have gotten much better at Costco.... More

Driving home from NYC, we stopped at the inn for a few days and were very pleasantly surprised by the River Room. We ate outside on the veranda the first night and in the restaurant on the second. Both nights the food was amazing and the service was great! I found the portions too big to finish, but they were... More

We had such a miserable time in our unit at the ridge top. Went to the Shawnee inn to the river room and was very impressed with the hotel. The bar and restaurant were exceptional. Wish I would have stayed there.

The River Room was unassuming, but did deliver big time. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We had dinner at a late hour. The food, though a small menu, was soooooo good. The view was spectacular of the grounds and you didn't feel rushed through dinner. Tried the Boston creme dessert which was very good and creative at the... More

My wife and I ate there for valentines day. I wanted an upscale dinner. Although the food was good I the ambiance was poor. The lights were bright. I asked if the could be dimmed but they couldn't. The waiter [Scott] was young and for desert seemed to push us out the door. We weren't offered coffee or something warm... More

We loved everything about The River Room. The staff was friendly. "Real" linens on the table. A perfect view from any table. Delicious fresh food, and the live music and the man who plays "the stick" was wonderful. He will come to your table and ask if you have a special song that he can play for you. Really friendly...
