We always enjoy eating here. The food is good and the staff is nice. We enjoyed the Happy Family dish and the Kung Pao Chicken. Good prices.

We love Long River and eat in and take out often. Super nice people. Amazing curry dishes, chicken is our favorite with snow peas, tender chicken, onions, and savory curry. Shrimp egg foo young with red sauce and white rice is also an amazing dish. Fried dumplings also amazing at long river. Old restaurant but amazing food and great service.

I have been eating here for years-It is a dependable restaurant-needs updating on decor and restrooms but the same local family has been running the restaurant for a number of years and it has a family atmosphere. There is a good selection to choose from and they are always willing to alter any item to suit you or your dietary... More

I've eaten here many times. Waitstaff are very good and entertaining at times..Food was excellent and actually none are much better. They have child entrees on the menu as well. A great place to go for some oriental style dishes.

Long River Chinese Restaurant offers a nice venue with friendly wait staff. Their service is quick for eat-in. This is a comfortable place to eat. Their dining room could use some updating.
