About The River Room
At the River Room, we pride ourselves on sustainability and being in harmony with the seasons. Our philosophy is to utilize locally sourced products at the peak of their freshness whenever possible. Some of these items are grown right here on our own Shawnee Island Farm. We are pleased to offer guests with a one-of-a-kind dining experience.
Restaurant Manager John Z. and his staff were THE BEST! His assistance with coordinating our son's graduation from ESU with short notice was stellar. They are highly recommended and we will definitely plan to return for future family gatherings. Food, service and atmosphere were excellent.
Staff polite and helpful. Service very good. Menu has plenty of a variety. Keep up the good work.
We enjoyed our meal and the service We look forward to returning.
Service at the River Room is very good. Staff is attentive, polite and knowledgeable of food on menu. Prices and atmosphere are good. My only suggestion would be to change up the menu on occasion. Maybe with the seasons.
We had a 7:00 reservation and we were seated immediately. At 7:23 I got up and asked the hostess if anyone would be serving us. She apologized and took our drink order and said she would be right back with our wine and some bread. The wine was delivered and our server came over and took our order. Our salads came out immediately and we had to ask for bread. We were not even half way done with our salads, and we were not dallying over them as we had hiked all day and were hungry, when our entrees arrived. So we waited forever to be served and then we were rushed. The fish was overcooked and dry but the pasta dish was pretty good. Additionally, there were no place mats or table coverings, just banged up wooden tables - no atmosphere at all. Not impressed and won't be back
We sat at our outdoor table at 6:45 and didn't receive our dinner until 7:55!!! We weren't even served bread and butter while we waited. Another table that sat 10 minutes after us with 4 noisy children didn't get their meal until 8:50! The black bean burger was good. The pasta with chicken was sooo bland, the fettucine was not fettucine- it was spaghetti, also very bland. We added four salt packets to each meal to try to give it some flavor. The shrimp francaise had very little flavor as well. Disappointing for sure. The chef needs some Italian cooking lessons.
Due to everything going on, I’m not surprised every waitress was a new employee, but the service could have been better with time management and waiting for a long time for something as simple “syrup “ and also the atmosphere needs more decor.
I will accept a learning curve due to the restart from Covid 19. However, first rule for breakfast is coffee must come out really Hot 🥵, must be accompanied by cream, and sugar not wait for it to be requested. I will come again hopefully the learning curve will improve. Regards Gene U.
Kind of a mediocre meal. We had bacon-wrapped scallops as an appetizer and they were okay. Nothing to write home about and not sea scallops. I had Chicken Marsala and, while the chicken and linguine were good, there was no Marsala taste to the dish at all. My wife had the Strawberry Pecan Salad with Shrimp and it was very good..
My family and I had a wonderful experience eating dinner and breakfast at The River Room Restaurant this past weekend. This restaurant is certainly family friendly. We were all treated very well by the restaurant staff. I was especially impressed by how the maitre d' and our server interacted with our kids. We were not the only family at the restaurant and I noticed the staff providing great customer service to other patrons too.
What a nice team of people there. We had 2 families for an 8-person party. Service is polite, the ambience is great for a party with 4 children :). That and happy, full bellies is all you could ask for for non-fast food yet not pretentious dinner.
Excellent Valentines Day dinner. Outstanding food & service in an appealing atmosphere!
we enjoyed our stay and have recommended returning to our friends for a golf outing get away..
Service was great. Loved having someone playing piano while we enjoyed some great food. Price was a tad high but overall a great experience.
Best bang for your buck in NEPA.
I believe the coffee cups are undersized, and therefore the coffee service needs to show up more frequently. Other than that, the Breakfast and dinner service was exceptional. Gene Uszaki
