We selected this restaurant based on the excellent reviews. We were extremely disappointed in the service and the quality of the food. We arrived at restaurant at 6:45 for a 7:00 reservation and were told to wait until 7:00. We waited at the bar and on several occasions inquired about the readiness of our table. Once it was very apparent... More

This was our first visit to Savannah so I really didn't know where we wanted to eat to experience the great seafood Savannah has to offer. We asked the concierge at our hotel to suggest a restaurant which would be great for seafood and give us the 'flavor' of the city. We were not disappointed in our visit. I always... More

We ate here on Monday for lunch and it was great once again. We only had 3 appetizers between the two of us. We sat outside at one of the tables on the sidewalk which was nice on a not so busy day. We had the lobster and crab bisque bowl which is one of the best soups that we... More

We decided on lunch and after viewing several restaurants on the block returned to River House. Glad we did. Our server was John A and he did a great job. Suggest the fried chicken and purple salad/crab cake. Good food at a reasonable price along with good service.

We recently visited Savannah and were so excited to eat at River House after reading lots of menus online in the area. They advertised their Paella as a house special dish. We ordered that and also a Fried Shellfish Platter. The paella was mushy and tasteless. It was really not edible and not just our opinion- a lady next to... More

We came to the River House Restaurant about 7PM in the evening on 10 June 2016, I remember the date and time because it was our 39 Anniversary. The wait line was extremely long, 3 hours to be exact. We decided to wait because the River House Restaurant came highly recommended and we were happy that we waited. The service... More

Paella was ok, not a lot of flavor and warm on temperature. The broth is a chicken instead of seafood there for lack of flavor . Also, if you like big chunks of onions, peppers and tomatoes then you might like this paella. Service a little slow especially trying to get your check.
