First time visit and had the haddock. Meal was delicious. View is relaxing by the water. Service was fast and friendly. Highly recommend this place to all.

Interesting and innovative menu - sometimes over-the-top (as in so flavorful that you have to doggie bag some of it home - too much of a good thing) but definitely worth trying. Some favs: Calimari appetizer, lobster stew, duck, many good local fish dishes (cod, haddock, scallops).

Enjoyed dinner but there's room for improvement. The food can come out on the slow side which is not OK for a large resto like this with higher end pricing ... Especially with a window into the kitchen. I don't want to see my entre sitting waiting to be brought out to the table! Watch the saltiness (crab cake). Lobster... More

Our group of 11 had a great dinner at the RRG on a Saturday night. While the highlight of the evening was the attention paid to us by our knowledgeable server Nicole, the food was also very good. I had enjoyed a very big lunch at another restaurant, so I opted for a light meal - Strawberry/Goat Cheese salad and... More

Terrific food, service and ambiance. We had an appetizer, lunch and desserts. Everything was wonderful. Our waiter, Bryan, was excellent.

Had a nice meal here with my staff. The menu had a nice and creative selection. All of our meals were great, and the steaks were cooked to perfection. Service was attentive, though a bit slow. The outdoor dining ambiance was quite pleasant overlooking the docks and boats on the Royal river. I though the pricing was on the high... More

We went to RR for my birthday. We started having wine outside in the Adirondack chairs overlooking the water. We then went inside to enjoy the fabulous food, great service and very comfortable seating. I highly recommend RRG

Service, food quality, large portions, beverages, and ambiance are all needed for a great dining experience and this place hits the mark on all points!! You NEED a reservation at most times- learned this the hard way. Second visit was same as the first, they do not disappoint. We'll be back!!

We were looking for something on the water for lunch and just found this fantastic place. It sits on the Royal River and just off the highway in Yarmouth. You need to view their website and check out the decor as well as the menu. Has a great deal of outside seating and lots of room inside as well. Great... More

This is my 2nd visit here. I love the space this restaurant is in, especially the covered patio and the area by the fire pit which all overlook the river/ marina. Lauren was our very sweet and attentive server. The oysters were delicious. Everyone enjoyed their meal. The food is very good.
