The River house is gorgeous on the outside and indoors. Four of us dined inside, prices are comparable to the Keg. Service was awesome, food was fantastic. Great gem of a place with character. The salmon, steak and mussels are amazing and the chocolate peanut better dessert is my favorite so far. Music was great!

We have been to the River House Grill on many occasions and we have always been very satisfied. The culinary team locally source their products. The Alberta Bison is fantastic. All of the entrees feature local products. In the summer the outdoor patio is a great place to relax and look out over the small river. The staff are very... More

The river house is really nice.. We had supper out on the deck. Nice view of the river. The service was great. The salads were really good.. We had steak and it was done to perfection.. Little on the expensive side but a really nice place for a date!:)

We had reviewed the menu before we made reservations and arrived thinking it was just a matter of ordering. It turned out the menu had changed and the website hadn’t been updated. I consider my musical likes to be quite eclectic, but whatever Classical music was playing when we arrived didn’t do anything more than irritate me. My appreciation of... More

You'll find bison, beef, chicken, seafood and vegetarian food on the menu at the River House Grill. I do believe the original Chef-Owner, Willie, has retired; however, the food quality has remained just as good-which is fantastic. Willie was a Chef at the Hotel Macdonald in Edmonton some years ago and his influences remain. What a great atmosphere. Excellent wine... More

If you are looking for an excellent steak without the wait and crowd that you get at the Keg, you must try the River House Grill. A little more expensive than the Keg, but you will get a better steak and the ambiance and the view in the summer is fantastic.

After our last disappointing experience nearly 2 years ago we thought it would be fair to try the Riverhouse again and see if they had worked out the kinks. We knew there was a new chef and it would only be fair. They have renovated the main dining room and it is excellent. Our server was quite attentive and very... More

I love the menu and the surroundings. The menu is varied and they use local and organic food as much as possible. The prices are a little higher, which makes it a great place for a special occassion

Went for lunch one Friday afternoon. Small menu, but tasty. My father and I had the beef shortrib melt. I added the soup of the day to mine. Soup of the day was a onion and mushroom soup, using the braising liquid from the shortribs. My mother had the soup and sandwich special, the soup of the day and a... More

Booked for an early supper to celebrate a birthday - 6 of us and a 1 year old. Very attentive staff - great service. Not a huge selection - but quality over quantity. We ordered a variety of dishes from elk, lamb, salmon and the tenderloin - everyone was positive about their order. I had ordered a black forest cake... More
