Our server, Matthew, was phenomenal. Our food was out of this world fantastic. We were given beautiful glasses to take home as souvenirs for choosing the revered Chatham Artillery punch. High quality with a casual atmosphere. Definitely recommend the River House while in Savannah.

Wife and i had wonderful meals this evening. Pecan topped bourbon Salmon and blue crab stuffed flounder, both done to perfection. Great attentive staff and mid range pricing add up to a great buy when you add in the ambiance and the wonderful river views.
