The food and service were great. Plus you get a great view of the river. Prices were very reasonable. Outdoor seating is also available.

“Almost There”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2012

This restaurant has everything it takes to be great, but it's not yet there. My wife and I dined there on a Saturday night, (we made a reservation) and we were shown immediately to our table. Our young waitress was earnest and pleasant if not a little inexperienced. (When a customer orders a cocktail, I think the waiter should ask if he would also like a glass of water. Before that glass is brought, probably ought to ask if the other diner would like one, too.) The bar made my martini--up, with a twist--except no twist was included. That's no biggie. We had the chicken pot pie and the steak, which arrived quickly. My wife liked the chicken pot pie and my steak was a little salty and gristly, but acceptable. The carrot cake was tasty though it had clearly been in a refrigerator until the moment it was brought to us. The decor was a little spare, the atmosphere unappealing due to very bright lights glaring at us as if we were on a movie set. There are nice lights hanging over each table, so I'm confounded as to why they have the bright spotlights on, too. All in all, a good--but not great--experience. I'd say if the restaurant keeps working on little details, it can eventually be great.

“Haunted Restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 29, 2012

The Riverhouse Restaurant can be found in one of the oldest buildings in Atchison on the MIssouri River. All selections have been extremely tasty. If you go here, hope they have their Cream of Mushroom Soup on the menu that day! It is soooo delicious!

Was here for lunch. Good sandwiches and dessert. Very nice atmosphere, chose the upstairs dining room. Beautiful views of the river and Memorial Park.
