    Love their GF pizza & JJ nachos. The owners are always there & very accommodating. I was worried about the artichoke Parmesan sauce they use on the JJ nachos. She brought out the container so that I could even read the ingredients for myself. Wonderful place. They’re always busy since they have such a great reputation so go on off-peak times if possible.

    We moved to Hanover 10 years ago and found this restaurant. A couple years later my son was diagnosed with Celiac. We had gotten to know the owners so we talked to them about Celiac. The owners insisted that they wanted to have something for my son to eat. I discussed with them at length about cross contamination and they set up an separate station for prepping the gluten free pizza crusts with ingredients that are not contaminated. (Crusts are brought in prepared and frozen). We have never been ill yet and we eat there 1-2 times a week. My son has had his blood checked a couple of times since his diagnosis and his level has been perfect. That would not happen if he was having reactions to the pizza. He is extremely sensitive and will puke within 20-30 after cross contamination (happened 2 times from other restaurants). He now has Type 1 diabetes which takes cross contamination from Celiac to another level. Trust them completely. He has never gotten sick from eating at The River Inn. I have since figured out I had Celiac. I never get ill either. I do always stress the importance of clean everything and cross contamination still every time. The staff is great but it is a very busy place and I want to make sure it's got their attention. One friend of mine with Celiac kept getting sick from their pizza but we didn't. She later found out it was an different issue she had to their pizza sauce that her stomach couldn't handle. Nothing to do with cross contamination. They try very hard and take it very serious. Love this place! Update: They have Gluten free buns as well for burgers! They will also put tater toys through the oven instead of frying them.

    Staff seems to knowledgable about GF but I've been sick both times that I've eaten here. The pizza is amazing though!!! If you're not very sensitive you may be fine.
