This is a favorite restaurant for our clan, with something for everyone. Classic food, good beer selection, and unbeatable views of the river.

We drove down to Portsmouth to meet my nephew for dinner. He recommended River House for gluten free options. He was spot on.

I had calamari, lightly battered and fried, served with sliced jalapeños and fresh lemon. Tasty.

He got the tenders to share with his girlfriend, Cajun style. They got the ten, and went home with four! These tenders are crispy, moist and huge!

On the down side-the prices. We paid $150 for four. That's on the high end for me and this place is just a step up from fast food/bar food. But add in the location-we sat on the river-maybe that's what they charge for.

Had an early dinner here with a friend on a cool Thursday spring evening. It was a nice relaxing time sitting upstairs on the outside insulated deck. The service was good and the food was delicious with good portions at decent prices.

I was visiting from the UK, They took me to this lovely harbourfront restaurant. I very much enjoyed the seafood dish they recommended. I would never have known how to choose from the extensive menu otherwise. Service good as well.
