As long as they have Journey2Mars playing I don't mind paying the higher prices for lower quality food. They could have quite a bit more seating and not be so crowded, if they would just finish the ou...tside deck...Service was good, but would have been Perfect if she had fewer tables and less traffic in the main walking area. I noticed the workers-servers and bussers were working the tails off, yet in the weeds. It really seems like they care, however it seems like your systems need to be tweaked a bit. I would go back to see the view, the water and the boats going by. But, I expected Fresh food and that's why we are glad we Started/Ended with the Frozen crab claws.... really? Disappointed. "Service" was the saving grace and you need to assist them in order to help you. No matter how great they are... they are having to sell what you serve. You asked for my opinion and I think if you only want to drink..... The River Shack is for you. See More

When arriving we were not greeted with a hello or welcome. We were shown to our table and the menus were thrown on the table. The table was dirty from the previous guest. Apparently it was to much to ...ask to wipe the table. The fish tacos were good and the shrimp po'boy was ok. The service was lacking, it took 15 minutes for the waitress to take our drink order. No drink menus were on the tables, so instead we ordered water and tea. The restaurant has great potential, but it seemed the employees do not care to be at work. We were so disappointment and have heard great things about the river shack. See More

I absolutely love the rivershack is very nice atmosphere is wonderful also if you like Bushwhackers they make the best in Mobile Alabama and they also have wonderful music wonderful waitresses I love ...the River Shack 37 years ago when the beach, was there I was married underneath the two oak trees and at that time they have a drawbridge is to the new bridge so I had a wonderful time and I still go there and the oak trees are still there but the old drawbridge is not and neither is the Beachcomber but now we have the River Shack. And I rate it least a 5 plus great food and like I said the best Bushwackers in Mobile Alabama. Also the Christmas parade the boat parade is very nice that they have loved that also See More

I'm sorry but I have tried and tried this place out numerous times and each time the food just comes out either cold or greasy or old greasy tasting. I love the atmosphere but the food just is not up... to my standards. Sorry guys but put some effort and pride into your place and I promise you will have a great thing on the river. Whomever the owners are should really consider visiting places such as Kemah TX or Destins Harborwalk to get ideas of how to bring in tourist and quality food and service. If that happens I will recommend this place and bring in contacts and clients. See More

The Rivershack is my favorite spot to eat with my husband and my daughter. The food is always fresh and delicious. Customer service is always top notch. On several occasions, Chris has been our waiter... and he has always been friendly and attentive. See More

My girlfriend and I arrived around 8 pm, an hour outside of closing, and were greeted with very friendly attitudes by everyone. It was also very nice for our puppy sammie because they are dog friendly.... Our server Kristin M. was very friendly and helpful in our ordering descesions. On top of the great service the food was outstanding and they also have a great selection of craft beers and mix drinks. If we our ever back in the Mobile area we will be sure to stop by. See More
