    Absolutely outstanding experience! River House is one of my absolute favorites and never disappoints. We had Delaney for the first time and she was AMAZING! Brittany is our normal go to waitress and even on her off day, she and Delaney made sure my birthday was one to remember. 10/10 I can never recommend River House enough.

    First time eating at Jeff Ruby’s and I can tell you it will not be the last. Our hostess (Britnee with glasses) was fabulous. We left full and feeling like we just went through an experience. All of our food was exceptional and steaks like no other, but that Ruby Roll was the most amazing thing I’ve ever experienced.

    I have to say that the folks working here are gracious, friendly, accommodating, and clearly enjoy what they do. I've been here for holidays, birthdays, and now a work lunch. All of these times we received great service and the food is excellent each time. Great southern food and the bread pudding may be the best in the city.
