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!

There are only a handful of restaurants that are located on the bank of the Connecticut River! River: A Waterfront Restaurant and Bar, with its multi-level outside deck, is located in Wethersfield and is the first restaurant to open on the river in many, many years! River serves up USDA Prime Steaks, sourced from the legendary butcher, Pat LaFrieda, along with the freshest Seafood! Pair that with some of our house-made pastas, delicious appetizers, and decadent desserts, that’s the perfect recipe for a fabulous dinner!
