Dine On Our Deck & Stay Warm on Cooler Nights!

Over 1.2 Million BTUs Of Infrared Heat! That's right. Million. We are the only truly four-season outdoor dining in the area!

At River, we have the Rolls Royce of heaters on our deck. Over 26 infrared radiant heaters are discharging at over 600 degrees of warmth at all times, and they simply do not compare to an ordinary heating system! We have reinvented what outdoor dining is on cooler nights and at River, you can always dine in the great (heated) outdoors, every day of the year, right on the bank of the CT River!

Steak & Song Tuesdays

Listen, Tuesdays are about the hardest day of the week! It’s not even halfway to the weekend, Monday took all of that weekend energy away, and we understand! That’s why, starting tomorrow, we’ll be jazzing up Tuesday Nights with our new Steak & Song program!

Every Tuesday, River Will Be Serving A Tender & Juicy 12 Ounce USDA Prime Top Sirloin Steak!

This mouthwatering meal comes with your choice of Mashed Potatoes or French Fries, Chef’s Vegetable of the Day, and all for just $29 – OR $25 for our Rewards Members.  


Don’t miss out on a special night!

Stop in for Brunch every Saturday & Sunday!

Saturday and Sunday from 10AM- 2:30PM
Enjoy new Brunch specials every weekend that will have you wanting more, and our special Bloody Mary of the week! Each week our Bloody Mary’s will change up the fantastic garnish that tops this delicious drink.
