First off the decor and atmosphere of this restaurant is a huge "Wow". The views are very pretty of the harbor. The menu is very diverse. My daughter found this restaurant in a Google search. I fell in love with it the moment I walked in. The fact that the staff is friendly and the food is delicious makes this... More

Very welcoming. A little pricey, but the food was good. They had a pretty good beer and drink list. The service was very good.

I asked my AirB&B host where I should go to have lobster and she recommended the Royal River Grillhouse so I decided to check it out. I'd never had a whole lobster before, so I asked the server for tips. She had to call someone else over, but they were incredibly helpful and the lobster was delicious. It was a... More

Made last minute reservations as we just came into town. Most accomodating. The greeters were pleasant and welcoming. The bar service was quick and tasty. And Deen, our waiter, was a godsend. The muscles were fantastic. The seafood gumbo was to die for. And the lobster ravioli was beyond compare. Would definitely go back

My friend knew I wanted a restaurant that served what Mainers call Lobster Stew. It's not really a stew - just plenty of fresh lobster chunks swimming in cream sherry. SO DELICIOUS! It's very rich and very filling - especially the 16 oz. size. (But so worth it). There were lots of good choices on the menu at various price... More

We stopped in between lunch and dinner, with a limited menu as we were told the kitchen transitions for the dinner menu, so were a bit disappointed with the selections (3:00- 4:00). That being said, the items we had were delicious. The lobster stew was amazing. The mussels were fantastic and the broth extraordinary. The fries are crispy and salted... More

Reservations recommended! The locals say this place is consistently packed and consistently good. The chowder with apple smoked bacon was a standout.
