RiverHouse Inn

I had a little birthday celebration with my besties on Friday. Lynne, Beth, and Kathy took me out to a nice dinner at the RiverHouse Inn. It was my first time there, but I had heard so much about it before. The restaurant is in a beautiful historic house on the river in downtown Williamston. Our table was by the fireplace in the bar area, overlooking the Red Cedar River. A great atmosphere, cozy with rich wood and high ceilings. Our dinner was delicious, everyone loves their dishes. Service was excellent - our server was very attentive and knowledgeable about food and wine on the menu.

Our wine: 2009 Bodega Enrique Foster IQUE Malbec.
Characteristics: "Fresh picked wild strawberries, some Ceylon Cinnamon and a bit of strawberry hard candy on the nose. Really fresh and lively on the palate with the Strawberry party meeting the baking spice party. Good fresh acidity and mild tannic structure balance out the friendly clean finish." - wine tasting note by PC

Calamari Fries Appetizer - served with chipotle-lime-cilantro aioli.

Seafood Linguine
Shrimp, mussels, and scallops in spicy vodka sauce served over garlic and herbed linguine.

Lobster and Clam Risotto
Creamy risotto with lobster, clams, bacon, shallots, and peas.

We shared a creme brulee and a (very big) slice of carrot cake for dessert. Both are wonderful. Food portion is very generous, each entree comes with a salad. Our meal ended with nice cups of coffee, a good conversation, and a great dining experience. We're planning on going back to enjoy their outdoor patio seatings by the river when it's warm out - hopefully soon.
