The food here is a hit and I love their sandwiches. They are always full of flavor and are large enough to fill me up. I recommend giving the River Nile a visit!

The food is really good here but every time I have gone the service was lacking. It was really slow and non attentive waiters. Last time we sat in courtyard and it is very neglected! Wish they could get service and courtyard to match food.

We were looking for a change from the "Chains" restaurant scene, more "hometown flavor". They got that part right. We arrived and waited 20 minutes for someone to take our order. We were addressed by two different servers, each unaware of what the other had...More

The River Nile is a local family owned restaurant established in 2000. We are located in beautiful historic downtown Dothan Alabama. Serving the best homemade soups, breads, pastries around. Coffee and Espresso bar is wonderful for that afternoon pick me up. Menu features unique sandwich and salad creations including the "Pharoah"- homemade chicken salad on fresh baked sundried tomato bread!!!!!
