Our waitress was wonderful. The lobster with rolls, soup or salad, potatoes, veggies and a full lobster was $19.09. The food was very good - the soup was either a potato andoulle sausage or a butternut squash. Good buns. Yummy lobster. Plenty of food. Beer tappers broken :( Great halibut cheeks with cajun seasoning. Will go back.

Nice mid to up scale place. Great service and great food. Hard to find so you really have to get a turn by turn on finding this place. It was worth it.

We had a 7:30 reservation for three and left our car at 7:27. We were told "We are running late with our seating. It will be a few minutes." There were no seats anywhere so we stood for about 20 minutes before a party was seated and 2 bar stools opened up. There is no appetizer or other food service... More

We were taken here by locals on a Tuesday night. Nice bar up front for drinks and a professional bartender. We had a party of 6 and could not have had any better service. We had several apetizers including calamarie and halubut which was delicious! Please try and of the fish entrees as they were all perfectly prepared! We CANNOT... More

We went on a Wednesday evening and I ordered the Wednesday special - lobster boil. The lobster was so small, I only got about four bites. However, the corn was sweet and flavorful. Our server was fantastic. The food was good but it is unlikely that we'll return.

Enjoyed this local restaurant in quaint village. I'm a sucker for beets - loved the roasted beet salad and the calamari steak parmesan is a must try! Took a customer here and everyone loved their meals - nice big round table was perfect for our group! Grateful the locals recommended River Lane Inn.

We have been going to River Lane for years. Never bad or questionable meal. Service is above most other places. Great fish dishes and steaks that will not disappoint.

My wife and I are close enough to River Lane Inn to ride our bicycles but on this summer's eve in late August 2014, we got a late start after a cocktail at home and didn't want to ride home in the dusk/diminishing daylight. We were seated immediately in a dining room that was about 1/2 to 2/3 rds full... More

My husband and I really enjoyed going to eat great seafood! We received a gift card. It was nice trying a restaurant in our area. Not too many nice restaurant to go out on a date night. The night we went it was very quite. But it was also early (babysitter). Would try again.
