To read a negative review saddens me, we have been so pleased with the service, food, costs and atmosphere! I am sorry if others were not as fortunate. When it comes down to it the food and menu up is the star and The Pub...is 5 Stars, a great menu we are slowly eating through! Portions are huge and we always end up with 2 meals. Truly I could go on and on, it is that good.!More

Did take out pizza a few weeks ago and it was really good, left me wanting to try again. Did delivery last night with the same results, glad I've got some left over for breakfast. Delivery woman was very pleasant even called to verify directions....Most impressed with the side salad, it was beautiful, fresh and colorful...ok maybe sounds weird but it was. Tiramisu and chocolate lava cake expensive but portions big enough for 2 and also very good. Try it, this is a place we want to keep in Welaka where the options to eat are few !!!More

I have had much better experiences here in the past but tonight was a huge disappointment. My shrimp were MICRO size and barely cooked and then a side of french fries which I did not want was on the plate along with some beautiful way...too aldente cooked fresh vegies. All in all my husbands lasagna was ok and friends salads adequate.More

Took a road trip to try the pizza. Everything about the restaurant was great. The staff was wonderful and we appreciated their hard work as I know, like most restaurants, they were short staffed. The food was excellent, I love pizza so that was my...choice. My friend ordered the lasagna and they were both delicious. We will definitely come back! Please support these Mom and Pop local spots as they are working hard to stay open. ThanksMore

Restaurant looks nice , but after ordering wait 1.5 hours no food waitress never came back to the table and tell anything . Back of the house never talk to the wait staff that it would be that long . Owner said her restaurant was...a great . I tried to get a word in , but she never wanted to listen to me . So we walked out and NEVER will go back .More

Seeking a local place for lunch, the activity here made it an easy choice. Staff was professional and personal, social distancing practices were exercised. Patrons were close, particularly at the bar. Although I selected a sub from the menu, the clear choice, from other orders...being delivered, seemed to been the pizza or calzone. Next trip I wont need a menu. If you in the area, this is a worthwhile choice.More

We have been getting pizzas and wings from this establishment for 10 years. The last two times we ordered wings there, they have been nasty. A year ago River Pub got new owners and I believe they have changed their food for more profits... unsure...though.... For the past 10 years when our family would come to visit, they would want River Pub wings and even though we knew the last time we had them, they were horrible. We decided one more time we would try them so when the family came and asked For wings and pizzas, we got it from the establishment and they were disgusting. The chicken skin wasn’t crispy and the sauce was watered down. Our little boy even stated their sauce on the pizza tasted like Dollar General sauce.More

Ordered a pizza from The River Pub. New to the area. We did takeout and picked up. The staff was amazing. Pizza was ok. Not sure what they use for dough but it was very chewy and doughy. A little skimpy on the topping. I...know they get great reviews so will try something different next time.More
