Relaxing laid back Saturday lunch. We sat outside watching the boats and birds. Service was friendly and mostly good; we were seated immediately and server was friendly; drink refills could have been a little quicker. Food was good, hot and fresh. Appetizer sampler was excellent. Lobster corn chowder was very good with chunks of lobster. Fried fish was lightly battered... More

Three of us enjoyed dinner here recently. The Island Ribs were fall off the bone and the barbeque sauce they use is unique and very tasty. Try the ambrosia salad (not on the menu but available for $1 more) - you won't be disappointed. Our server was pleasant and attentive. All in all, a nice experience.

Closest venue to our boat and we were hungry. Food was good but beer - locally brewed - was expensive. Our waitress was a very busy gal on the night but she did a good job.

We have been twice. Once to the bar area for appetizers and drinks and once for lunch. Each time the bartender/server was very knowledgeable and attentive. They were able to present my friend with plenty of gluton free options. The food was delivered in a reasonable amount of time yet we were given plenty of time to enjoy our conversation... More

A Viking fan and a Bears fan serving Packer fans...how could this be a five star rating? Easy! The service (and a few laughs) were great, the setting is on the water (actually over it) and the drinks between 3 and 6 are priced like the last time the Bears won a Super Bowl. Try the ribs or any of... More

We made it to happy hour everyday. Great drink prices. Perfect view of sunset. Fun, lively crowd. Nice, attentive bar tenders. We had the shrimp appetizer everyday too....$5.00 for a bunch of shrimp in this amazing sauce. You've got to try it.

It's a pity that tourists don't often get to see this part of Florida because I believe it would match their perception. Riverhouse Grill is part of a marina and located at the end of a pier with unbelieveably beautiful views. But besides the atmosphere, there is a fine variety of reasonably priced food, and the service is outstanding. What... More

We were delighted to find no wait when we arrived to this restaurant with our teenager and toddler for dinner on a Sunday evening. We were even more impressed when we were seated inside, but with a wonderful view. It seems you usually are outside with a view or inside without. I started with the lobster chowder, which was delicious.... More
