We're Renovating


You heard right! The Riverhouse Reef & Grill spent her first 10 years thriving on the Manatee River and leaving a mark in Palmetto's history. But it's time she got a face lift and we could not be any more excited. Both the first and second floors will be renovated this fall, one directly following the other so that our doors will stay open throughout the entire process.
