Seafood: This River Street staple, which is housed in a restored 18th-century cotton warehouse, has been a favorite among locals and visitors for 30 years. The menu is chock-full of seafood, from lobster bisque and peel-and-eat shrimp to crab cakes and blackened mahi mahi. Entrees include fish favorites such as baked tilapia, crispy scored flounder and grouper Florentine, as well as shellfish staples including fried shrimp, crab cakes, Dungeness crab legs and a low country boil. Meat eaters can choose from a good selection of steaks, chicken dishes and more. Save room for the River House's signature homemade peach cobbler and banana pudding.
Local Expert Amy Pine Says:
Seafood: "The River House likes to tout its Chatham Artillery Punch, which is made from a Colonial-era recipe. But does the drink live up to its hype? Yes it does. Just be sure to sip the alcohol-laden cocktail slowly."
Best for Seafood Because: A staple on historic River Street, the River House has a solid seafood menu with tasty choices like crispy scored floudner and Dungeness crab legs.
