Live local music and good food

Enjoyed an evening of good music and food with friends. Busy bar area and service was good. Enjoyed a grilled chicken sandwich with great steak fries.

I've been going to this restaurant for years and have never been disappointed. The bar tenders stay up-to-date on the latest cocktails, the staff was friendly and prompt and the food has always tasted amazing. Their appetizers and deserts are top notch. I can't wait to eat here again.

I chose this restaurant on our Glenwood visit because of good TripAdvisor views. I feel like I need to review our experience so people are aware of what they are getting. This is a very casual restaurant, especially if you sit outside. While our salads and entrees were good, the service was lacking. I am not saying you are going... More

Go to this place in the summer when the weather is nice and you can sit out on the deck. The view is amazing. The food is okay, but a bit pricey. Go for the Greek Pizza for a cheaper eat and save room for the creme brulee trio!

Birthday dinner for my brother drew us to Rivers. Hadn't been for awhile and discovered a fabulous "early bird" prix fixe dinner menu for $19.95 per person. Soup or salad, choice of six entrees (complete with fixings) and dessert. Our table of four ordered three different entrees and each one was delicious. There was a lively happy hour scene in...

We went to the Rivers restaurant for a birthday dinner we sat out on the patio over looking the river. We came an hour early for dinner service but the staff was very nice and sat us anyhow. We had my 3 year old with us and the waiter took extra good care of him bringing him cherries when he... More

After visiting GS for years, and having patronized most of the restaurants in town, we were lead to River's by a local and could not have been more pleased. The shrimp and grits I ordered were amazing. Our waitress was well skilled and experienced. I can't express enough through my reviews how much a talented wait staff can impact your... More

My family, 14 people with ages ranging from 6-72, visited the Rivers Restaurant as part of a weekend mini-cation to Glenwood Springs via Amtrak. We have several members with serious food allergies, along with some picky eaters. Everyone left happy and full. I personally enjoyed their melt-in-your-mouth flank steak and look forward to returning so I can try it again.... More
