We had a wonderful time here for our wedding reception

We had a wonderful time here for our wedding reception on the water! The views were spectacular; the food was amazing; the staff was friendly; courteous and on top of everything throughout the evening; the venue was simply incredible. Many of our guests have told us how much fun they had and what a great party it was. Unquestionably, a large part of that is due to the staff of the Riverhouse making sure everything went seamlessly throughout the evening. Thank you Kristin, Shannon and crew for helping to make it an evening to remember!

We take with us wonderful memories of our wedding day

The beautiful view of the Manatee River from the Eagles Nest and Riverfront Room, is what had drawn us to picking Riverhouse, as a venue for our wedding. Cindy and Kris were great to work with.
From our ceremony to our reception, it all went smoothly. Our guests enjoyed themselves greatly and also complimented the delicious food. We are very satisfied on how it all went. We take with us wonderful memories of our wedding day.

Riverhouse was the Perfect Venue for our Wedding Reception

Riverhouse was the perfect venue for our wedding reception from day one of planning until the end! They were very quick to respond with any questions or concerns that I had, and made sure that everything went smoothly! They were readily available to meet with me whenever I wanted, and made sure that everything was organized and taken care of prior to our “big day” so that I was worry free! I would definitely recommend them for any wedding or big event!

Out of State Wedding at Manatee Riverhouse – Review

I am mother of groom, hosting rehearsal dinner in unfamiliar state. Kristin was excellent in the planning of our event leaving nothing to chance. When I arrived everything was beautiful! Wait staff were professional & attentive. Food was great! Bartender Anthony I believe, was so very helpful and fun!!
