Description: The River Room has served delectable coastal-influenced fare to a tremendous following of loyal patrons since 1984.Moderately-priced lunch items include our World Famous Shrimp and Grits, Shrimp Creole and Pecan Chicken Salad served with apples and grapes.The dinner menu features fresh, grilled fish such as Carolina grouper, yellow-fin tuna and Atlantic salmon. Chef specialties include Herb-crusted Grouper, McClellanville Crab Cakes and Twin Filets of Beef with Blue Cheese ButterThe River Room is located in the historic J.B. Steel Building.In 1888 when the J.B. Steele Building opened, it housed two businesses known as the Steele-Moses stores. Downstairs, customers inspected dry goods and groceries displayed on massive hardwood counters, and upstairs they could be fitted for custom-made hats.Today, the building’s history is evident throughout and is enhanced with tasteful nostalgic décor. The dining room extends 50 feet into the Sampit River; its panoramic windows offer expansive harbor views. Nautical and turn-of-the-century antiques are on display, and an intimate bar showcases the restaurant’s wine collection.Children will surely make a beeline for the giant reef aquarium filled with colorful sea life.

We were staying in Myrtle beach and we had heard this place was really good. So we decided to drive on down. It took about 45 min to get there from Myrtle Beach, but it was worth the drive. I asked our server what was the best thing on the menu and she recommended the Shrimp and Grits. I ordered them even though I don't even like grits. Needless to say they were so good, I had to lick my bowl!!!! Everyone's food was top notch and the prices we excellent!! We will be adding this restaurant to our must haves when visiting Myrtle Beach. FANTASTIC!!!!!!!

We drove into Georgetown from the local Mansfield Plantation where we were staying just to check out town and landed here for dinner. The greeter and wait staff was very friendly. The menu was very enticing and we couldn't figure out what to have. We almost settle on one of the platters when we saw a couple get their order and realized that's what they ordered and the portions were huge. When we come back we'll probably order one to share. I had the seafood casserole, it was smaller but still very filling. My husband had the crab cakes. And, we had to finish it off with dessert of course. After that we walked along the harbor walk.

Went to the River Room on the last night of our vacation. We were able to get a seat on the enclosed porch looking out at the river. It was absolutely beautiful. We had a nice bottle of wine which was priced very well. We had an appetizer, salad, and an entrée each. The food was so fresh and delicious. We really enjoyed the evening and the price and value was fantastic! We will definitely return the to the River Room when we are in South Carolina.

My wife and I ate supper here one night on a recent week-long visit to Georgetown. The food and service were very good, and we had a nice table right next to the windows overlooking the Georgetown harbor and Harborwalk.

From the cheerful greeting by the hostess, to the flavorful food, to the reasonably priced drinks which were abundant with alcohol, our entire experience was pleasant and relaxing. We enjoyed the nautical atmosphere as we dined along the river viewing the local fishing boats. Our waitress was experienced and pleasant as she guided our gastronomic journey.
