Decent for a Marriott

The food here was good. Standard Marriott prices. My biggest complaint was the menu was very limited. If I remember correctly there were about 5 choices of Entrees. I would have liked a little more option.

Dear Dwight, Thank you for your feedback. It is great to hear that you enjoyed the food. On occasion, we reduce our lunch menu to accommodate large groups in the hotel. Our dinner menu is rarely reduced. We will share your comments with our Chef and work to provide more offerings in the future. We hope that you will dine... More

This Marriott is due for a remodel. Along its side is a restaurant that is not fresh and good. I paid $28 for prime rib as it was the special. This prime was at least a day old and reheated. Sorry but when I pay this kind of money I want a fresh product. Between insta mash Potates and the... More

The buffet is very nice. For some reason they don't offer vegetables. Recommend seating by the window overlooking the river.

Had dinner there while staying ... it's the only thing close if you don't have a car but the food is definitely not gourmet, but good. Service has been slow and not too attentive the past two trips but when it's time to eat and you don't want to leave, it's an option.

Burger for dinner was dry and tasteless. I've had better breakfast at Ihop, both for food and service.

I honestly wish that we had some of experience that the other traveler's had at Riverbend. My Mom and I stayed for 4 nights at the Marriott while visiting a sick family member and we had hoped this restaurant would be at the very least decent during our stressful stay. We attended brunch on a Friday morning. We knew it... More
