“Pleasant experience”
Reviewed 6 May 2014

Tucked along the west branch of the Delaware River, this restaurant offers a nice dining experience in a comfortable setting of open timbers, a large fireplace which was needed on this cool May evening and good food. They chef's signature dish of trout turbans was ordered by each of along with a very tasty cream of asparagus soup made fresher by the use of mint. Unfortunately, there was one order of trout left so my husband opted for the special of the evening - barramundi (recommended by the chef). Neither of us were disappointed. Both dishes were presented nicely and tasted great. We appreciate a restaurant that runs out of something as it means to us that the chef keeps a fresh kitchen. Kudos to Gabby our server for taking good care of us. This place has a wonderful looking deck complete with a firepit which is probably a very nice place to spend a summer evening looking at the river. Next time.....

“Pretty place with average food”
Reviewed 1 July 2013

7 of us went to dinner. We ordered a variety of entrees with salads and other sides. Since food is subjective we tried each others meals for a variety of opinions on each item. Food was generally well seasoned but overcooked. Nothing stood out as being above average. One item was below average.
Portions were generous and service was excellent. River Run has a nice setting and is a warm and cozy restaurant with a great outside dining area. We dined there many times in the past, but not recently, with inconsistent results. If they would upgrade the food preparation we would dine there regularly.
