Description: The River Nile is a local family owned restaurant established in 2000. We are located in beautiful historic downtown Dothan Alabama. Serving the best homemade soups, breads, pastries around. Coffee and Espresso bar is wonderful for that afternoon pick me up. Menu features unique sandwich and salad creations including the "Pharoah"- homemade chicken salad on fresh baked sundried tomato bread!!!!!

Delicious is the best word to describe this place. Simple but a hit on every item there. I love the atmosphere and the outdoor cafe type area is a real refresher from the usual establishments of down town. I will be back again and again...Oh I almost forgot the Roasted Red Pepper soup...yum!

Soup, sandwich, salad or dessert...whatever you are in the mood for, they have delicious choices to tempt your pallet with! Service is great & always cheerful and the owner often visits in the dining area with guests who leave as friends!

The River Nile restaurant on Foster St. in Dothan, AL is a hidden gem! Foster St. itself is charming and walking along it you notice the restaurant and court yard tucked in between other beautiful, old, brick street buildings. The restaurant ambience is delightful inside and out in their gorgeous courtyard! The homemade bakery, soups and entrees are absolutely delicious! Over the course of two days we tried and thoroughly enjoyed their baked red pepper soup with a cheese/crouton type topping, spinach chicken salad, chicken salad sandwich, and chicken and Brie sandwich. Their preparation of these items is not your "usual" sandwich fare......very inventive and so delicious! This restaurant was so good that we will be coming back to Dothan with this being the #1 place to go back to!

I loved it and I'm definitely going back soon. It has all the charm of a downtown bistro and its reasonably priced and the portions are reasonable too. It's full of funky art and a nice outdoor patio. The coffee is delectable. I kinda felt like I was at a friends home. Everyone there was friendly and welcoming:)
