We were looking for a place for lunch and fellow tennis players suggested River House. We were not disappointed. The seafood was great. We had the blue point oysters with the garlic shrimp and crab claws as an appetizer along with the River House Delight. We both had the River House Festival as entrees. This was a lot of food...

Unmatched location. Look out at the Manasquan Inlet and river, docks with fishing boats. Very scenic. Food was decent. Service good. Staff pleasant. A good Jersey Shore dining experience

We ordered drinks ($ 9.00 each) they were very watered down with little taste. 3 of us ordered the lobster ravioli -... More

This past was a beautiful day and we wanted to eat outside, somewhere with a nice view and good food. River House fit the bill! We arrived shortly after noon, which was perfect as it wasn't crowded yet and we didn't have to wait for a table. Although there is a shaded area, we sat in the sun (don't forget... More

It was a special occasion so we also ordered a bottle of wine. If you want to keep the price down go for lunch (have done that too)..or drinks and appetizers. My family is picky about their... More

We went with friends we were visiting in the area. The outdoor bar & dining is a beautiful casual setting on the water with a beautiful view of the river. We ordered the taco platter to share. It was huge, more than enough for the 4 of us, loaded with all the appropriate toppings & plenty of chips. We then... More

We love the river house because it's on the water and it's fantastic to sit out on the deck when the weather's nice and enjoy a few drinks. We've been for dinner several times and we find it average and rather pricey. That said, we always bring our out-of-state visitors here, as they're wow'd by the views and atmosphere. Definitely...

Although the setting is beautiful the food is just okay. Even so it is especially lovely to be there outside for lunch and dinner.
