We came to the River House Restaurant about 7PM in the evening on 10 June 2016, I remember the date and time because it was our 39 Anniversary. The wait line was extremely long, 3 hours to be exact. We decided to wait because the River House Restaurant came highly recommended and we were happy that we waited. The service... More

Paella was ok, not a lot of flavor and warm on temperature. The broth is a chicken instead of seafood there for lack of flavor . Also, if you like big chunks of onions, peppers and tomatoes then you might like this paella. Service a little slow especially trying to get your check.

Went there in celebration of our 30th wedding anniversary. Atmosphere was "meh". Service was terrible; the woman who was our server seriously had zero interest in customer satisfaction and clearly did not want to be there. The food was so-so. Garlic potatoes were gluey and cold. Grouper oscar was edible. Food presentation? Burger King does a better job. I have... More

We're locals and for the past two years we have taken advantage of the city's restaurant week celebration. This year we chose River House Seafood. The restaurant is located on the city's river front, so it allows visitors to venture out after their dining experience. The food was okay. Not the best ever. The atmosphere is cozy and warm. The...

By the friendly greetings we received as we arrived this seafood restaurant located in an historic old cotton warehouse. Even though they were undergoing renovation, we were not bothered by any noise and we're seated by a window with a view of the river. Leslie was our server and was very friendly and knowledgeable of the menu. My partner and... More

A very popular destination in Ga .The harbor and location is interesting and well located but the food does not match the history of the town.

We had dinner here because we were told they had crab legs (which they did not). The service was very good but the food was only average. I had the stuffed flounder which was not really any better than I get inland in NC. My husband had the fried flounder and it was so thin that the portion size was... More
