Breakfast buffet was great. Dinner was over priced and very limited menu. Atmosphere was very casual but the menu was not.

Trip to River Room at Shawnee Inn was not as we expected. Had pleasant experiences there before, but NOT THIS TIME. Two of three plates came out cold, my tuna (which I ordered rare) was medium to well done. The waiter we had kept apologizing, but it was not his fault. We happened to see the "manager" once after we... More

My husband and I recently purchased a dinner package which included dinner at The River Room Restaurant at Shawnee Inn and tickets to the Shawnee Playhouse. When you enter the main entrance to Shawnee Inn you feel like you stepped back in time. There was a piano player in the main lobby. Very quaint and quiet. The River Room Restaurant... More

My wife and I, along with another couple, enjoyed dinner in the River Room of the Shawnee Inn. The menu was more than adequate, the service attentive, the food very good. All of this in a classic Inn located in picturesque surroundings on the shore of the Delaware River. A really nice time in a really nice restaurant.

My husband and I dined here while staying at the horrible Shawnee Inn. My husband ordered a medium ribeye steak while I had the grilled pork chop with onion reduction. While my dish turns out good, my husband's medium steak was served well done instead. Who eats a 30-dollar well done steak??? They offered to make him another one but... More

We decided to dine out at the river room located on the main floor of The Shawnee Inn because we we're already tired from driving 4 hours to get to our destination and didn't want to go back out in the Main Street to find a restaurant. This was a very convienent location. It was the worst decision we ever... More
