Stopped for lunch here about 1:00 on a weekday. There was no one else there. Pretty quiet. Very, very dark and we sat right at the bar. The bartender was not very friendly. Food was good though. They offer daily specials besides a regular menu, mainly sandwiches, appetizers, typical bar food. I just ordered a burger, and my friend had... More

The River House is your typical small town bar. So if you've been drinking (and I do) and want another beer and burger then by all means stop in. The place is dingy and dark.

My friend and I "stumbled" upon this cool, old place back in the summer after leaving the Rising Star Casino, where we "donated" some money to somebody's college fund. What caught our eye was the HUGE Cinncinnati Reds logo in the front window. Once inside we realized it was exactly the place we were looking for. I think there were... More
