Clinton's Old River House to Close

We were in Clinton today and learned that the Old River House restaurant will close on or about February 1. This restaurant is in a beautiful location that looks out over the South Branch of the Raritan River, very near the famous Red Mill. On a nice day in the spring, summer or fall, the outdoor dining area was nearly always fully occupied for lunch and dinner.

While I always enjoyed breakfast or lunch at the Old River House, the dinner menu never appealed to me. I always thought they could do so much better. Nevertheless, I shall miss this place as it was a 'known quantity' and very much a part of the downtown Clinton scene. And did I mention the fabulous location?

It will be interesting to see whether another restaurant moves into the space. It's hard to imagine any other type of business here.
