“Great Service, Great Food”
Reviewed August 8, 2012

The River house tries to make breakfast and lunch dishes that you cant make at home, they use local and organic ingredients and are always there to greet you with a smiling face, recently they were featured in the New Hampshire Magazine for Best Breakfasts in NH, Every time i go i try to try something different but the baja turkey sandwich and the johnny apple cake remain my favorites.

“Great small town "Farm to Table" Cafe”
Reviewed August 7, 2012

This is the perfect little New England cafe. Sit in the back by the river for a nice view. This is a Farm-to-table restaurant, so most of the food comes from local farmers. They have an amazing assortment of burgers. Home grown beef and veggies, even free-range local eggs. My son got the Riverhouse French Toast, which was enough to feed 3.

“Breakfast or lunch, you need to eat here!”
Reviewed July 15, 2012

The Riverhouse is my absolute favorite local place to eat. No matter what I get here, it is always good. They do their best to buy local, which includes the beef for their burgers and vegetables when in season. Speaking of burgers...WOW are they good. Juicy and flavorful, with plenty of topping choices, you won't be let down.

While the burgers are stellar, I think their breakfast options are even better. The pancakes are perfect, just think enough. The bacon is usually pretty good as well. My favorite thing to order is a side of home fries, which are seasoned and really tasty. My wife loves getting the "Compost Heap". I can't remember exactly what's in it, but she gets it every other time we go there.

The key at the Riverhouse is how fresh everything is. Other places around the Milford oval have fine food, but none taste as fresh as the Riverhouse. Hands down the best breakfast on the Oval, plus they have excellent coffee and serve a few bottled craft-brews for lunch. Go here, eat well and return.

“Great burger choices”
Reviewed April 18, 2012

There is a whole board of burger choices and they are imaginative and delicious. A lot of local ingredients are used in the preparations. Everything tastes very fresh. Breakfast is also good.

“GO HERE... It's awesome!”
Reviewed April 13, 2012

I LOVE this place! Their breakfasts can't be beat. Very original, lots of local ingredients. Not your average breakfast place. Outstanding coffee. Try the Compost Heap or the Baja breakfast sandwich. My only recommendation for improvement is that the bird's nest potatoes be cooked a little crispier, but really it's so, SO good overall. Creative specials, too. And what's better than the MIlford Oval?
