We use to visit this restaurant often, enjoying their blue plate specials on Fridays and other items. But on our last two visits my husband and I had a hard time finding something we could order to eat. We eat fish items and veggie items, but no meat. Spinach salad has bacon dressing. Rice has some sort of ham, no... More

I recently stumbled on Rivertown Bistro and was so impressed, I returned on a date night with my husband. The service was wonderful. Very professional. And the food...delicious! On my first visit, I ordered a shrimp, crab, scallop au gratin served in a parmesan crusted zucchini boat along with an amazing salad. My second visit was on a night featuring... More

We visit the Bistro to celebrate special occasions. It is truly the best restaurant in Horry County. The service last night was impeccable as always. The food is delicious and high class without being pretentious. Try their specialty cocktails and make sure to save room for one of the amazing desserts.

One of the best meals I've ever had. Everything was perfect - food, service and ambiance. Not cheap, but well worth every penny.

This restaurant came highly recommended by several friends. Upon entering you notice a modern upscale decor that you may experience in larger cities. I will admit that I thought that this restaurant was probably a trendy area gathering place with average food. I was wrong about the average food. I had the grilled tuna that was expertly prepared with a... More

This restaurant is a must if you are in Conway or the Myrtle Beach area. The food is excellent and the service is great. They have a really nice atmosphere too. I had the French Onion soup which was delicious along with the meat and cheese tray which had a lovely assortment. We were headed to a Christmas play around... More

My husband and I had lunch at Rivertown Bistro and it was fabulous! He had the Monte Christo and I the Steak Panini. Both sandwiches were absolutely delicious and the yam chips were amazing. Sarah was our server and she was delightful. Overall a great dining experience!
