is there some sort of Brigadoon thing here, that the good restaurant appears only once every 10,000 years, or when we're not here, of what? most recent trip produced singularly foul onion burger, served disdainfully in a chilly atmosphere... sorry to be the dissenting voice on this local trouble spot

We are sorry to hear you had a bad experience. I'm not sure which burger you had (onion burger) or your server, but we feel we have a great product. We buy high quality, aged beef from our supplier for our burgers. Also, with reference to the "Brigadoon" label, I'm not sure what you meant. If it was referencing short... More

I live nearby and dine here often. Everything I and my family has ordered was delicious. They have the best burgers in WNY. I highly recommend the Riverstone Grill even if you don't live nearby.

Have had two good dinners there so far, Tried the Steak Gorgonzola Penne and it was very good. The wife tried Chaz’s Mac and Cheese and loved it. When back the second time and had the fish fry and was very happy (Haddock). The service was very good. We will be going back for more.

Thank you for your review we really appreciate it. The steak and gorganzola pasta is a very popular menu item. It is rich and flavorful and continues to be a customer favorite along with our Friday fish fry. Hope to see you back soon. More

After watching Man VS Food, I had some pretty large expectations from this establishment. I was hoping and dreaming of a huge slab of juicy meat that I would struggle to finish. Needless to say, I was very underwhelmed. The restaurant itself is small, the decor is nice and the staff relatively friendly, but atmosphere aside, I was there for... More

Went there tonight for dinner with husband and five year old son. Place was quiet except bar area was packed for trivia night. After waiting for food for over an hour my son's spaghetti came out. My son finished all his food and still adult entrees were not even at the table. My husband found the waitress and asked for... More

the hostess seated us immediately and within minutes our server came over took purring orders and explained all of the specials. In non time at all we had our appetizers and our soup. Did not wait long for our main meal which was delicious.

Riverstone Grill is one of the best restaurants around! They are always accommodating for our large family, including my 2 year old grandson! Many restaurants that have the caliber of food that Riverstone offers do not encourage children, but he has always been welcomed! Speaking of the food, I have tried most of the menu and have enjoyed it all!... More
