FIELD & STREAM - March 2013 - WHEN STEEL COLLIDES - Take part in the annual big-fish bash in upstate New York....By Joe Cermele   (RIVER REST STOP - After you stow the rods, grab a seat at the bar of the River House.  This is one of the nicer eateries in town, where the beer is cold and the soft pretzels complete with Sam Adams cheese sauce and house mustard, hit the spot after a long day on the river.

Customer Reviews

My family's favorite restaurant in pulaski! The staff is absolutely wonderful, and accommodating to my two young children. The food is perfect every time. There are always new and exciting entrees to enjoy. - via Facebook Reviews
We stopped for lunch while travelling between Kingston, Ontario and Skaneateles, New York. We were pleasantly surprised to find this excellent restaurant on a historic site. The interior is clean with a relaxed atmosphere, and there is an outdoor patio area. Our server was very helpful and friendly. The menu offers a nice selection of food and drink and our food was very good. - via Trip Advisor 
We found ourselves in Pulaski last week unexpectedly for a funeral, and after the visitation, need a little pick me up. Our friends recommended The River House, and it turned out to be perfect. It was very quiet for 7PM on a Thursday, and we could have sat closer to the bar for a more communal, casual experience, but we offered a secluded table in the back of the restaurant, which was very nicely decorated and much fancier than the bar area. The peace and quiet suited our moods, and we enjoyed being only table in the entire back area (restaurants are so horribly noisy these days). 

We started out with some creative cocktails, which were delicious. The menu was one of those rare ones where I had a really challenging time deciding what I wanted, and that's rare for me because I'm a bit picky. I was overly tempted by the appetizers, so I ended up getting the fried cheese curds (never had them before and wasn't that impressed), the French Onion soup (great), and a pear walnut goat cheese bacon (yea bacon!) salad with chicken as my main course, which was so good I took half back to my hotel. My husband got a delicious pork chop and bacon (go Bacon Thursday!) dish that he gave me a few coveted bites of. Delicious.

When main courses are that good (and utterly terrible for you), you know desserts and going to be sinful. My husband got a slice of pie and I got chocolate banana cream pie. It was surprisingly light, which was perfect on top of a heavy meal. 

The waitress was perfectly lovely and the service was good. 

I have found in my travels that you find really good food in the strangest places in unexpected times. Fromm what I can tell, most people come to Pulaski to fish. We were there for a funeral. Finding a pleasant place for dinner was an unexpected, and welcome, surprise. - via Trip Advisor
We took a large group (about 18 people) there for lunch on a Saturday. We had great service, good food, and a pleasant atmosphere. It is one of the few places that you can take a group in Pulaski. The menu was quite suitable for several of our group on gluten-free diets: there were several good choices on the lunch menu. I have not had dinner there, but the dinner menu also seemed to be GF-friendly. - via Trip Advisor
My favorite place to dine! I Love the steak & bleu salad & all of the soups. We've been going there for a few years now & I've never been disappointed! - via Facebook Reviews
We were passing through and needed a place for dinner and came across this one. Omg the food was so good. From the amazing dinner salad to the tasty steak and delicious sides. Was too full for dessert though. Wish we lived closer so I could go there all the time! A+ - via Facebook Reviews
If you are looking for a step up from fast food, pizza, or a chain restaurant in Pulaski, try the River House. We had steak, pasta, salads, dessert, drinks.. and it was all good, and reasonably priced.. and our waitress was very pleasant and attentive. Would definitely eat there again next time I am in town. - via Trip Advisor 
River House has a nice variety of food and beverage. Went there with my wife and parents, we all ordered something different and all enjoyed our meals. Service is friendly and efficient. The place is clean and decorated nicely. I would highly recommend to anyone in upstate New York. - via Trip Advisor 
I have been to this restaurant with my wife a couple of times. The menu is more creative than you would expect, the service has been good and the food very good. If you are looking for a casual or better atmosphere with very good food I would suggest the River House. On holidays be sure you make a reservation. - via Trip Advisor 
We used the RiverHouse for our wedding this past July and couldn't be happier with the exceptional food and service we received.  All of our guests raved about how wonderful the food was; especially the sirloin!  Thanks for making our special day perfect!

When we got engaged The RiverHouse was such an obvious choice for our rehearsal dinner!  We were so excited to bring our closest friends and family together to celebrate at such a great place - and to show support to a local business!  The experience was above and beyond our expectations.  Frank, the owner, was so accomodating with everything; he met us at our convenience, was so helpful in choosing our menu, and was there during the dinner making sure we were happy.  The night came and went flawlessly!  Everything was ready when we got there, the servers (Tami and Shansi) were SO nice, the food was OUTSTANDING and fast (especially considering our party of about 30 people) - not a single complaint from any of our guests!  After our dinner we had a ton of people meet us there for dinks and we packed their tavern for the rest of the night---the bartenders were great and everyone had an awesome time!  It's a night we will never forget and we highly recommend other couples to do the same!

The RiverHouse is definitely a place that I will be returning to! I ordered "Lindsey's Riggies" and it was fantastic! It is available in mild, medium or hot, I chose medium and it had quite a bite and was perfectly delicious! My friend ordered Veal Parmesan and he was thrilled with the flavor. The service was top notch and our waitress was very attentive. While we were finishing our dinner the power went out on the entire street and the manager gave us dessert on the house. It turned out to be a very memorable evening! -via Yahoo! Reviews
I can't get enough of RiverHouse. Delicious apps, wide variety of dinners, and fabulous homemade desserts (chocolate seduction pie) fill my tummy with pleasure. Chicken lovers, try the Tuscan chicken. It will not disappoint and the specials including lasagna are to die for. Also the decor is warm and inviting and my server, Val was a doll. -via Urbanspoon
