Private Parties




Book Your Next Event at River, Tuscaloosa’s Newest Dining Destination!


You and your guests will have an unforgettable experience at River, located in the heart of Tuscaloosa’s thriving entertainment district on the banks of the beautiful Black Warrior River. Our architects and designers created the perfect private events room, which will accommodate up to 40 guests in a sleek and sophisticated setting with access to a terrace overlooking the scenic Riverwalk. This space is perfect for small rehearsal dinners and bridesmaid luncheons! Please let our events coordinator help you choose the ideal menu for your guests – from crisp flatbreads right out of our wood-burning stove to Gulf seafood, hand-cut steaks and salads fresh from local farmers. Our wine and craft cocktail list as well as our signature desserts are hallmarks of the River dining experience.

Our private dining room can accommodate up to 25 guests seated inside but allows for an additional 15 guests when extended to our patio. The patio is not climate controlled but can be the perfect extension for a party of 40. As many groups would prefer a cocktail and appetizer setting, we can add a roll up bar to the event for easy access to libations!

Home-owned and managed, River is the restaurant Tuscaloosa has long been waiting for. We are just five minutes from Bryant-Denny Stadium and six blocks from the heart of downtown Tuscaloosa with ample parking. Our contemporary Southern menu evokes the region’s emerging food culture and our staff looks forward to helping you create special memories. Please call us today so we can answer your questions and assist you in booking your next event on the Tuscaloosa Riverwalk.
