Very busy upon arrival. Staff very accommodating when asked for an area that would be a little quieter as my guest is hard of hearing. Food and service was excellent. We stayed long after the rush was over and enjoyed catching up with each other and the staff encouraged us to relax and stay as long as we liked. Lovely luncheon for us both.

Just did a review 2 weeks ago, but I highly recommend this restaurant to all. It is such a relaxing place to be and it’s quiet, NO loud music!

Overall great experience in a good location. We travelled with a disabled person in a wheelchair and it was challenging to get in and to the table, however staff worked to assist us with this. Food was to be expected at the price point and service was quite good.

This restaurant always delivers! Great food selection, nice that you can go small or go big! It's a favourite spot to meet up with old friends and we've been coming here for many years. We always recommend it to friends and family.

Poor service ... we waited over 10mins to even get drinks
Patio was DIRTY with spiders and webs hanging off railings and tables and even the heaters
Overall a very unpleasant experience
We always enjoy the bar side of this establishment but clearly the restaurant isn’t the same quality

We had an early birthday dinner for my Mom here and it did not disappoint as always. All 3 of us had the prime rib dinner which is a tried and true favourite and always consistently delicious. Excellent portion sizes, great taste and authentic Yorkshire puddings - a true roast beef classic dinner like my Nana used to make and I have yet to find anywhere else that can serve one like the River House. They even included a free piece of cake for my Mom. Very thoughtful service. Thank you! Definitely will be back!!

We went and had the prime rib. Although we prefer rare the waitress advised us it was more medium. It was still very tender and tasty. The waitress was a sweetheart. Nice size portion. Desert was great.

A group of 7 of us went for our Christmas dinner on Dec 4th. There were only 5 other people in the entire restaurant at 6:15 so not very busy. The waiter was very nice. He did mix up 2 of our orders (which were fixed). Two other dinners which were the new York steak were both cooked incorrectly. Both were over done. New steaks were ordered, but it took a while to get them. One came out first and it was fine, but the other took a lot longer and we were told the chef overcooked it again so by the time the 3rd steak came to the plate the rest of our part had pretty much finished eating. No new potatoes or veggies were provided for these two meals so they were eaten separately from the meat so they would get cold. The restaurant only comped us one free dessert on a $300.00 meal that was less than satisfactory. The meals themselves that did not have issues were very tasty. Usually this is a very good restaurant to go to, but we will not be back in the forseeable future. Maybe that's why there weren't many folks eating there.

It’s my birthday next week so my parents decided to take me out for dinner. This place was one of a few on my list that I wanted to try out. As you walk in you are welcomed in by this warm home like feeling. We were seated by the window overlooking the marina. We caught a slight glimpse of the sunset but it quickly dipped below the horizon. I ordered the 8oz prime rib done medium- rare. When we got the food the presentation was very well thought out and looked very delicious. It came with steamed veggies, mashed potatoes and Yorkshire pudding. The prime rib was very tender and full of flavour. The vegetables and mashed potatoes were very tasty. Overall I was very pleased by the service and food here. I will definitely come back again!

Great restaurant. Friendly service. Mussels are highly recommended. Prime Rib is a must have. Not many places make Yorkshire pudding so that was great treat.

No changing table on premise so be prepared when bringing your little one.

Food was very good with great options for gluten free etc. Only complaint was my daughter asked for no cheese and it arrived with cheese. So while I ate the kitchen had to make hers over again. Server was very friendly and attentive. Wine selection is good as well.

I had the prime rib which was great but I am not particularly a meat person so I am not a good test of how great it was. The horse radish was nice! The salad and veggies where nice. The desert was OK but not wonderful. Wine was good. Service was good.

A perfect evening with friends - good food, friendly service and an outstanding view of the water! We sat out on the patio over looking the river and were served promptly and not rushed when we sat to talk over our tea and coffee. The desserts looked great but we were too full to try them☹️

We were visiting the area to bird watch at Reifel Migratory Bird Sanctuart. I had the peach lemonade mocktail with seafood Club sandwich. My husband had the house white and pan fried oysters. We shared the cheesecake with strawberries. Everything was excellently prepared. Beautiful view of the water.

Silly, but I made a reservation for 6:00 and had that confirmed. However, when we arrived at 6, the waitress said she had us down for 5:30 and she had just called our home to see if we were coming. Well, I assured her we are here. So some sort of glitch with the computer program.

A NICE SPACE AND THE SERVICE WAS GREAT. THE SPECIAL WAS A GOOD VALUE AND I LOVED THE YORKIES. THOUGHT THE ENTRES WERE PRICED A TAD ON THE HIGH SIDE. THE FOOD QUALITY WAS VERY GOOD. WE WERE IN THE DINING ROOM, NOT THE PUB. WOULD GO AGAIN.
