I ate at the River House as part of a tour group. My meal was cold and the vegetable was missing. The broccoli arrived a few minutes before the dessert and was practically raw. i assume the restaurant does better with individual meals but I don't really know.

We exited at one of the 15 stops on our trolley tour and decided to have a late lunch. After looking over several restaurants along the river, we decided on the River House. The interior was well appointed with a beautiful bar. I decided on the special of the day which was Grouper Florentine. This was served with a very light panko breading and included creamed spinach, roasted tomatoes and parmesan grits. I didn't think I was a grits fan but these were terrific. My wife had Cardina Rainbow Trout, crowned with sautéed crabmeat, fried capers in a white wine sauce on a bed of vegetables and creamy goat cheese risotto garnished with fried kale. Along with the meal we had a very nice Pinot Gris from Oregon. If this wasn't enough, we had pecan pie with caramel sauce and whipped cream. My wife said this was the best she had ever had.
All this was brought to us by our outstanding servers Niccolle and Caner. They were very attentive and made themselves available when ever we wanted them. Gladys, the manager even stopped by to make sure everything was perfect.

Really enjoyed my first dinner of the week here!!! All I wanted was seafood and I got some great food here! The tilapia was flaky and I got a big piece. It wasn't too breaded. The risotto that came with it was wonderful as well.
My daughter had the crabcakes and they were very meaty...not much breading either-perfect!
I do suggest getting a reservation-we were there on a Tues night and it was crowded!!

My dinner here with my son while on vacation, was one of the highlights of our entire trip. We visited Savannah the first week of January, and it just so happened to be the coldest part of the year anybody could visit Savannah, as it actually got down to the 20's.
The night we dined here, was the night the temperatures plummeted down to the 20's-30's.
That was to our favor, because the restaurant was pretty much deserted, but it made our experience amazing. Our waiter was Seth and he was great; attentive and not overbearing, knowledgeable and friendly.
The food itself was a delight and prepared perfectly.
