River: A Waterfront Restaurant & Bar

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!

We are excited to be opening at 75% capacity but are still making sure that all tables are at least 6 feet apart from each other, so we strongly recommend reserving well in advance!

Additionally, to allow more guests to enjoy our outside patio, all tables will have a time limit of 1.5 hours. All of our outside seating is available on a first-come, first-serve basis!

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!
