"Good food with a large selection, but the atmosphere is the real attraction" ... "Don't miss this casual dining place with friendly waitresses and good food" ... "Perfect for a summer night out"




Food ****   Wide variety of classic casual cuisine with twists of Asian, Cajun and more.

Service ***   and a half. Upbeat and friendly and I trust the kitchen will be able to handle the weekend onslaught in the future.

Ambience ****   A variety of spaces for all tastes. The deck is hopping.

Overall ****   A great new addition to the Portsmouth deck and water view scene with casual often creative dishes and a lively vibe.

For just opening and being a new restaurant they are doing very well, the Hostess greeted us at the door "Welcome to the RiverHouse" with an amazing smile, and the waitstaff is great..... Keep up the good work RH and you will go far!!! best of luck!"
