Loved sitting outside on the upstairs balcony. Beautiful night and great food and drinks
Amazing brunch, beautiful outdoor porch seating. Excellent waitress and hostess.
Great food and lovely patio
Driving by the Riegelsville Inn for several years, it was always full of folks eating on the porch and inside. We decided to try it out b/c I said, "If that many people like it, its got to be good." The Inn exceeded our expectations! Even though a 30 minute drive away, its a lovely relaxing trip into beautiful natural surroundings. The river is right there! The picturesque bridge... Inside we were taken back in time to a lovely colonial interior of stone and wood. Now we plan to be regulars!
Excellent food, expensive dinner menu, but excellent quality.
Great service and food. Carpet needs to be replaced. I get the old feel to the place but that is beyond old. Very friendly staff.
Great location with many seating options.
Spectacular setting and helpful wait staff can't overcome below-grade food. They need a new chef. My mushroom frittata was clearly prepared in advance and reheated. Came out dry and tasteless. Staff is superb. Sting overlooks river if you eat outside. Just wish the food was better.
Great place to eat. We were seated balcony, never ate up there re. Very nice.
Brunch menu is very imaginative.
We were a party of 8 and enjoyed a fabulous meal on the front porch. Weather was a bit chilly but the overhead heaters kept us comfortable. Food, beverage and service was outstanding!
Beautiful restaurant in a beautiful setting. Interesting menu and drinks. Lovely.
Always wonderful! Lobster Roll and Owowcow pistachio cherry I e cream were both spectacular!
Our server, Philly, was delightful. The Ceasar Salad could have used a bit more dressing. The chicken was done perfectly. The spinach salad was very good, fresh blueberries and Brie were quite tasty. The new savignon blanc was very good. Overall, a bit pricey. $50 approx for 2 salads and a glass of wine. Our balcony seating was enjoyable. Less crowded than the main level. Thanks for a nice lunch!
All restaurants are currently suffering from staff shortages resulting in slower service. However, the chef here is creative, the staff is friendly and the the food is worth the wait.
Food was good, but a bit salty from my swear dripping into my food. The fly’s were also an annoyance
Let's just say this place needs more help...our drinks were served incorrectly..wrong wine...every time it came we asked if it was correct...later learned it was Rose not Zinfandel...hour and and half to get entrées COLD.
manager made aware of issue...still charged full price for wine...don't waste your hard earned $$
All was perfect except we ordered a bottle of Chardonnay and they only had one bottle and it was sold. I just found it odd that the bottle was on the menu yet they only had one bottle in the restaurant
The building is beautiful, old and historic. It was incredibly stuffy and hot. It made it hard to enjoy our anniversary dinner. Both couples were celebrating their anniversaries. The oysters were only ok. The pork filet mignon was very good. 2 people had filet of beef which they said was good, not great. The crab cakes were good, not great. Dessert of strawberry bread pudding was TERRIBLE! Overall, a bit disappointed, especially because of the higher prices.
The food was good but my Pork Mignon was over cooked to Medium Well or beyond when I ordered medium.
The patrons dress like it’s just a bar so the atmosphere is not the fine dining experience one might expect from an historic inn.
Friendly service, very good food and happy to make substitutions for a gluten free meal. Generous wine pours. Will go again 👍
I really love that this place is dog friendly! The staff are great!
The staff was lovely, the food was good and the overall setting is just terrific. Very romantic and quaint. Gorgeous building set by the river and canal. My only complaint (and the reason the Overall is not 5 stars) was where we were seated. We were upstairs in a room with no ambiance or other diners. We will be back and I will specify a desired table next time. :)
Great food and wine. Service was excellent.
First time here and I will certainly be back. Beautiful place, great food, great service!
The Riegelsville in never disappoints. Brunch on the balcony, canal-side happy hour, a celebratory dinner, whatever the occasion, this place is always the right choice.
The menu presents enough options to make it hard to choose. But not too many to be overwhelming. There is no wrong answer on their menu.
There are lots of old, stone, roadside inns in this area. Some of them are even along the river. But, The Riegelsville Inn has an atmosphere like none other. Comfortable for casual folks on a leisurely road trip and welcoming for families or friends celebrating a milestone, there is something for everyone.
Great Service, food was very good, staff was gracious. Our waitress was very attentive and engaging. She said it was her first day but you would not have known. It was the perfect place for lunch.
Food was amazing as usual. Service was very good. Was said to find out that are favorite bartender was no longer there! Beths famous Bloody Mary is not the same! What a shame.
Loved it! We sat in the bar. It’s a bit noisy but there are other rooms that offer quiet. Dinner and drinks were outstanding.
Overall we had a good time. Sat on the balcony which was nice! Food overall was good..orange cheesecake was not very good. Waitress was OK. Had an anniversary and would of been nice to do something for them..Overall we had a nice evening!
We come here quite a bit and this is the first time we have ever had any issues with service. There was a Wedding going on (Looked Amazing) and we didn't get a Drink Order. After 30 minutes, I went inside and had to ask to get our server.
Otherwise we absolutely LOVE this place.
Worth the Drive, Food's awesome and on the weekends there's live music.
Food was excellent. My wife and I both commented it was the best meal we have had in a while.
Decided on Riegelsville Inn as a casual dinner for our anniversary. Hadn’t been there in many years. We arrived early for our reservation, however the staff was very accommodating and were able to seat us right away. Our server was very nice, and did an adequate job, but took some time to initially approach us, then never introduced herself.
The outside seating, which we reserved, was in a fine location, but the seating was rather uncomfortable and unstable.
The food and wine was very good, the service adequate. The ambiance from a style and especially from a comfort level, could use improvement. Overall the experience was good.
I don’t understand your noise level question. Is it supposed to show how loud it was or how nice it was. Suggest rewording the question.
Despite empty inside seating, we were put in a small back room near the kitchen (with a constantly screaming chef).
Service was spotty due to the fact that the staff was paying more attention to a full porch and patio.
Pub grub and wanabe gourmet mix on the menu were a puzzle. Who are they trying to serve?
Fried fish over soggy "handcut" fries used to absorb the fat from the fried fish were a joke.
This was our first visit. We had a party of 4 for lunch on a Friday afternoon at 1 and we sat upstairs outside on the open deck which gave us a beautiful view of the river. We had a nice breeze plus they also had ceiling fans. The service & food were excellent. No complaints from any of us. We will definitely return again.
The food and atmosphere was top notch. Food was plentiful and delicious. The pork was cooked to perfection. The salad was innovative incorporating peaches and burrata. Amazing
Walked right in and were seated on the front porch immediately. Service was done professionally and with a smile! We ordered salads and they were delicious! But honestly I’d have tried one of everything-I loved so many of the menu options! There’s nothing like the charm of waterfront dining and this romantic spot on the river is tough to beat. I’ll be heading back many times this season!
Great date night haven’t been in a while will be back!
This is our go-to place for Sunday brunch. Killer Virgin Marys, delicious oysters, wonderful Eggs Benedict.
