Very welcoming small bar with a nicely mixed clientele, friendly staff and solid home style food! Well worth a visit if you want some good food or beer in a great atmosphere.

It is in a bit of an odd location but this was a great spot for a family. The ambience is great and it was very crowded. We got in right away (I think we lucked out) The food was good and the kids enjoyed...More

There’s a level of consistency here that definitely serves the restaurant well. I usually get the big boy burger and I am always satisfied with it-it is large, cooked correctly and quite tasty. The other food I have enjoyed their has similarly been good although...More

Been many times for dinner. Good for families and friends. Busy, casual bar scene. Food is good but my complaint is the noise level. Even away from the bar, you can't hear the people at your table speak.

The food is really good at River Grille. We go for the Potato Skins and we always split the Chicken Milanese. The portions are huge! You have to like the bar atmosphere though - it can get very loud in there, not a great place...More

I saw a mention on-line that this typical neighborhood bar stood out for its food. Not being a drinker, but loving French onion soup, I tried it. And then again. It may be the best I've ever had - and the accompanying garlic bread is...More
