3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2014 NEW

We had a fine meal here two years ago and came back for dinner on a Tuesday evening. We heard that it is now under new management since our last visit. The wait staff were friendly and efficient. A few of the items were good, including a martini and the mushroom soup. But the asparagus soup was inedible; we sent... More

Our service was so wonderful that it elevated an average meal. Don't get me wrong...the food was not bad, it was good. I only mean that it was not the best meal that we had on our trip--not an "outstanding" meal. The shrimp and grits were a treat because I can't get that where I live.

Read all the good reviews on TA, Pullman had a wait, and chose the Riveria. Got right in and after eating knew why. Shrimp and Grits were okay, nothing to write home about. Calamari appetizer was what one should expect ordering calamari in Colorado. The special soup was asparagus--server mentioned it was made with broth, not cream. She didn't mention... More

Rex, sorry we were not up to your standards that night. We usually don't consider taking care of customers and getting nice reviews, in response as a problem. Good luck, Safe travels Mike Mercatoris More

I gave the ranking of 4, based on five stars for their happy hour and three stars for their dinner. The happy hour here is excellent and highly recommended. Good drinks and the apps were very very good. Which is what got us thinking about dinner... Unfortunately, we found our dinner to be good-- not excellent. There were no specials... More

I enjoyed my experience and food at the riviera supper club, the only thing that was not great was the service. Maybe they were busy, but I felt we had to flag our server down and the ordering took a while and the food took a while, etc. But drinks were good, food quality and selection were good nad overall...

Happy hour is great at the Riviera. Try the green bean fries, they're to die for. The wings are way too spicy. We split a ribeye steak that was on special. The steak was cooked perfectly and the sauce was good. The veggies were uninspired and seemed like an afterthought. We'll be back for more happy hour deals.

This place is the best! We eat here every year. There is a new chef this year who had big shoes to fill as the previous chef was awesome. He did it! Lamb is awesome and I had the liver and onions which was amazing. Great art on the walls and a friendly wait staff. You can't go wrong here.

My 8 yo son and I were hungry, late (for us) on a busy Saturday night. They were accommodating and seated us quickly, having made a reservation only 30 minutes before! We were seated outside (recommended highly) and had a wonderful dinner. The roasted garlic appetizer with roasted tomatoes, peppers, and cambozola cheese is to die for! I had their... More

We had scoped this place before traveling to Glenwood and it still exceeded all expectations. Don't let the outside fool you. Apparently they just redid their menu last week and all options looked and sounded delicious. Very reasonably priced for what you get. Great portions, great service and absolutely delicious food. If you're considering dinner in Glenwood, you must go... More
