We were on our way to Philadelphia to catch out flight home to London. With some time to kill we drove into NJ and just happened to pass the restaurant. With lunchtime approaching, here seemed a nice spot. In fact, it was wonderful to sit by the river on a glorious day and enjoy the stunning view. We opted for... More

The one thing going for this place is the view. It is second to none. The food, however, leaves much to be desired. The staff can be friendly, if they know you. It's sad because the Telford Inn is owned by the same people...and the Telford has no view.

checked the hours on there web page and drove 45min to have dinner only to find out the hours posted on the page were not correct and they were closed. Again checked the hours while in the parking lot and I read them correctly the site even said that they were opened. They need to update the information.

We live only 20 min from this restaurant but only now finally visited. The outside of the building looks a little run down but the inside is very inviting. There seems to be many dining area options including indoor formal seating or bar and than outdoor covered "porch" bar and tables that was still open to the outside. A group... More

My caveat is that I have only been here for shows and special occasions. There was a little bit of problem getting service in the beginning but that changed once we reached an understanding. The drink prices are reasonable. The view of the Delaware Bay is very nice. I only had "bar food" but what I had was enjoyable. The... More

This place has always had great food, service, and views of the Delaware. Another thing they have had the past few times I've gone is very inconsistent hours. Have tried to go there on a weekend at 3:00 in the afternoon, when the sign on the door clearly says they should be open, and the place is locked up. Same... More

Had a very sweet & helpful server- ordered the Grapefruit Fizz first- delish & refreshing- NOT sweet (perfect for me)! Ordered swordfish w/ crab, fingerling potatoes & asparagus. A little confusion- about the order, but my server fixed it! I was very pleased - can't wait to return! Closed Mon/ Tues - accepts AMEX.

This is an old spot that has had many names and owners over the years. Don't look at the building, but don't miss the view of the Sunset over the Delaware River. Yes the name says it all, "River - View". We were there for a party and the buffet style dinner was very nice. The selection was good, the... More

Unfortunately, when you first pull into the parking lot, your not very impressed by the ugly, old, cement building. But once inside and you get a glimpse of that view, you're immediately captivated. We found the hostess to be very pleasant but our waitress was a little brusque and uninterested. However, our meals ( warm avocado, crab, & brie dip... More

Had some kind of vodka/champagne/grapefruit drink, on their drink menu, for $5; was good; Nice change of pace. Bacon wrapped shrimp was great; but just 5 shrimp for $13. It's so nice to just sit on the deck and enjoy the view. Food is generally good; maybe pricey, but good. For Salem County, just can't beat the location; or the... More
