This is a small but exceptional get away location. This was my second time here. The back of the property backs up to a river and has huge pecan trees for shade. It has a small outdoor pool that is great during the summertime and perfect for couples at night. The rooms are small and quaint and made up to... More

We were looking for a nice place to go for our anniversary....something that would be memorable, special, not "run of the mill". I found "Inn on the River" here on TripAdvisor, noted the rave reviews and gave them a call to ask if it were too "last-minute" for reservations that night. We were in luck, they had some open tables.... More

We had a birthday dinner with 7 of us. The food was FANTASTIC and the service was terrific. This exceed all our expectations as the owners made special arrangements to accommodate our party. Food was perfectly prepared and the sitting was elegant and fun. I would recommend this for any time you want to have your expectations exceeded beyond FANTASTIC.

Every meal served at the inn during a corporate retreat was delicious with layers of flavor! My favorite was the grilled salmon served at dinner! Perfectly cooked and served with a caper sauce!

We have been huge fans of Inn On The River for many years because of the relaxing atmosphere and beautiful surrounding area. The dining experience is definitely the "icing on the cake" (pun intended). Most recent experience was very unique with a quail appetizer and duck entree. Chef Lupe always produces the the best menu with the highest level of... More

My mother and I stayed one wonderful night while visiting family. Very peaceful place to stay. We sat for an hour on the green, grassy lawn which is next to the River. Many places to sit. Too cold to swim this time of year but the pool area was very nice. The location is perfect and we walked everywhere. The... More

This place serves dinners in two sittings on Friday & Saturday nights from a monthly prix fixe menu. The appetizer was a tomato and mozzarella tart. Crisp and flakey. Followed by a mixed salad with candied pecans, strawberries, mandarin, and shaved parmesan. Excellent, fresh, and light on the dressing. Main course was steak with vegetables. Steak cooked medium rare and... More
