Awesome Chinese food. Always busy for take out. They have a nice restaurant to dine in as well. Food is all really good. The dishes do have a lot of sauces on them though. For example, the lomein is very saucy not dry, so it depends on what you prefer.

Some of the best Chinese food we've come across. We've been patronizing them for many, many years. Home delivery is fast and accurate, the restaurant is nicely decorated and the food never disappoints.

Stopped by for dinner and found the dining room neglected, dirty and employees not interested in service. Long River shouldn't have a dining room, since their business reputation is in their take out and delivery service. The dining tables weren't cleaned and had food scraps on them. There is no service and no one to seat you, if you could... More

I went in with my son, late on a Saturday night. The dining room was nice, nothing fancy. The waiter was excellent and so was the food. I am surprised at some recent reviews. I had gotten take out a few times and didn't like it at all in the past. This was the only place open in the area... More

For over 30 years... watched Alice's kid grow up there... had no problems getting our food from Long River- that was until Alice sold the place--- the new ownership is awful- the... More

Over the years the place has gotten nice, added sushi but it's take out chinese is the regualr greasy take out chinese you get anywhere else. It is nice to go and sit in the nice room and have sushi, I recommend that.

Very disappointing. I'm upset with the staff. The waitor dosnt speak english. And the waitress is nasty. To disrespectful. They lost good people. 5 of us. Will never go back because her nasty attitude. 20 min. To sit and wait until someone finally noticed we were standing there. We didn't get to order. Always short staffed.

Hadn't been to Long River in quite a while since my husband does NOT enjoy Chinese food. Always remembered delicious food, didn't know it had changed hands, ordered a simple dish of Beef & Broccoli, it was BAD...greasy, no flavor...so disappointing!

Wow, when you walk in the entrance, there are a bundle of empty boxes that fill the entrance and you have to wonder--what else lurks beyond the cardboard? Then we sat down and were the only people in the entire dining room. The lights were overly bright and i asked several times to dim the setting, but it took about... More
