The food was awesome... The rating is based completely on the wait we had! Seemed to be a very long line for a burger grill. Maybe you just needed more help that night?

This place is now called River House Bar & Grill. Fairly large interior and nice outside seating but your view isn't great! The servings are very large and the food is decent. Tonight we had alligator bites which were deep fried but these weren't greasy,...More

Port's or the Riverhouse is ok. It's changed around a number of times and was kind of thrown off by the fancy decor in the back dinning room. Food choises are much fancier now with prices to match. The food was good but more extravagant...More

Delicious. Food came out rather quickly and well worth it....mac 'n' cheese was quite cheesy and piping hot. I'm rather picky about my mac 'n' cheese, but this definitely lived up to my cheesy standards!
