Absolutely beautiful venue, with fantastic food. You would not believe the views during sunset. We also had our ceremony here which, the outdoor space was just as stunning as the indoor reception area. Being surrounded by the waterfront made for some unforgettable memories. The staff was great too, including our day-of coordinator that worked with our full-service planner to make the wedding day go off without a hitch. I couldn't believe that we were able to get our ceremony space, reception space, food, and beverage for such a reasonable cost compared to other waterfront venues. Everyone can't stop raving about the food and the venue!! I still have people telling me they're trying to find recipes to make some of the things that we had served because they can't stop thinking about it.

I cannot say enough good things about the venue and staff at The Riverhouse. From the beginning of planning, they were incredibly helpful and easy to work with. I was planning my wedding from out of state through my mother and sister who are local and they worked with all of us seamlessly. They were very accommodating and flexible and are definitely "yes" people. The venue is gorgeous. I loved that it's indoors since it was a summer wedding, but on the water and very open so there is a very natural, outdoors feel. The food is delicious. It was so hard to choose which package and meals we wanted because everything we tried was amazing. Great food was an absolute non-negotiable for us, and The Riverhouse knocked it out of the ballpark. I would recommend it for any reception or event as it is a very flexible space no matter the size and style.

The Riverhouse is beautiful and has spectacular views, I received so many compliments on how beautiful the ceremony and reception location were. We did the ceremony on the outside deck and the reception inside the 2nd floor banquet room which has large windows overlooking the manatee river. I was nervous when the event coordinator had left the riverhouse shortly before my wedding but the ladies who took over were very professional and did a wonderful job. Thank you Chris, Madison and Jessica!

Riverhouse was the best venue I could have possibly picked for my wedding. Carrie the event coordinator worked with me 100% of the way to make my dream wedding happen. Everything was wonderful from the food to the servers to the bride's room that we used to get ready in before hand. Everything was perfect and you can't beat the view of the river at sunset. My favorite thing at my wedding was that it was the night of the boat parade and even though there were hundreds of people outside, they still kept it private on the second floor, exclusively for my guests! I couldn't have picked a better venue for my wedding!!!!

From the beginning, working with Carrie and the Manatee Riverhouse for our venue and catering vendor has been effortless. Every question answered quickly, every concern (and there were very few) addressed immediately, and Carrie was always available to show myself and my planner the venue and allow any needed accommodations. The catering is in-house through the downstairs restuarant (Riverhouse Reef and Grill). I was concerned at first that bundled catering wouldn't allow for personalization or much room to choose; I was totally wrong! Everything was wonderful. Staff was efficient, quick, friendly, and funny (I had to hide off to the side before walking down the aisle, and the couple staff members back there helped calmed me down with jokes!).

I highly recommend this as a venue (beautiful waterfront location and views with a lovely dock and wooden balconies) and as a caterer (amazing food and great service). Carrie was wonderful to work with, and our event was perfect!

Carrie and the Riverhouse team went above and beyond to make our wedding day fantastic! Carrie personally helped me through the entire "wedding year" up to wedding day. She made me feel at ease and assisted with every decision. I can't thank her enough! Riverhouse is a beautiful venue on the water and the perfect spot for a Florida wedding. The food was excellent, the space is fantastic, and we loved the giant dance floor! Thank you Carrie & Riverhouse!

We were so fortunate that my wife met Carrie at a Bridal show in Sarasota. In less than two month we did an entire wedding planning. We have received a true professional service. Amazing food, friendly and professional personal. The place itself was superb and had beautiful manatee river views. Everyone who attended our wedding reception said: - "WOW !!!". It was a great experience for us and our guests. We can't be any happier.

Thank you so much from our family !

The Riverhouse is very likely the best location for a reception in the entire area. While reasonably priced to begin with (especially compared to country clubs or any other classy locations in the area), the night of the wedding showed us that it was worth every penny. The view was breathtaking as the sun was setting over the marina, the food was first rate, and the decorations provided by the Riverhouse made our lives so easy (all we had to do was make centerpieces--the enormous bay windows and strings of lights throughout the room were more than enough).

Of course, what really made us feel as though we'd struck reception gold was the event manager, Carrie. Simply put: she is fantastic. She helped us along the entire way, met with us multiple times, and made sure everything ran smoothly: from helping arrange a seating chart for more than a hundred people to providing last-minute table numbers and some much needed guidance for a couple of wedding rookies such as we were (we'd each only attended one wedding before and really had no idea what all was involved in planning one of these babies). On the night of the wedding, she clearly took charge and everyone within the wait and bar staff knew to go to her for questions (if there even were any), leaving us free to enjoy ourselves and talk to our many guests.

Overall, we could not have asked for a more perfect evening and we are so pleased to recommend this venue (and Carrie) to any couple, no matter the size of your budget.
