Dine On Our Deck, Day Or Night, & Stay Toasty Warm!

Almost 1 Million BTUs Of Infrared Heat is Blasting On Our Deck!

At River, we have the Rolls Royce of heaters on our deck. Over 22 infrared radiant heaters are discharging 600 degrees of warmth at all times, and they simply do not compare to an ordinary heating system! We have reinvented what outdoor dining in the “off” season means. Come warm up with us today in the safety of the great, heated outdoors!

Dine With Coats OFF & A Spectacular View!

We are excited to be open at 50% capacity! We make sure that all tables are at least 6 feet apart or more from each other, to ensure the safest indoor and outdoor dining experience in Hartford County, so we strongly recommend reserving! Your safety during these difficult times is our number one priority, along with serving up the freshest, housemade food and drink!

Additionally, to allow more guests to enjoy our outside patio, all tables will have a time limit of 1.5 hours or until the table is needed again after that time frame. All of our outside seating is available on a first-come, first-serve basis!

Make a Reservation Today!

We are so thrilled that you guys voted us as having the BEST WATER VIEW DINING!

We strive every day to make your experience with us tasty, comfortable and relaxing. We know that we are very lucky to have a beautiful waterfront view and we are so happy you think so too!

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!
