While visiting friends in Myrtle Beach, they asked where we would like to go to dinner.

Told about Rivertown Bistro from a family member. Arrived mid-week at 4:00 but they didn't open for dinner until 5pm (closed between 2pm-5pm). Drove around downtown but decided to just wait for them to open at 5pm. Wow - SO glad we chose to wait. Service was spectacular and the meals were definitely worth the money. Can't wait to return...

Following a fun glass art class at Conway Glass we went to Rivertown Bistro for a girls lunch. The restaurant is much bigger than it appears from the outside. The menu has a variety of seafood, pork, chicken and quiche. The quiche, shrimp salad and blackened fish over greens were all amazing. The service was wonderful and adjustments to our... More

Met my wife there for a great open air lunch. Food was good, as was the weather. Great place to take that special someone.

If you are visiting the Myrtle Beach, or you happen to live in the Grand Strand area, it will be worth your time to make the trip to Conway to eat at the Rivertown Bistro. A good local place. Nice atmosphere.

Packed house at 8:00 which indicates a good local reputation. I made the mistake of ordering the duck however "the chef recommends". Bad, it came back medium to well done. Not good. The wife had crab cakes, which were well above average. Serving staff were very friendly, noise level a bit high. We'd try it again only this time being... More

We have eaten at the Rivertown Bistro many times on visits to the area and have considered it one of the very best along the SC beach coast. However our most recent experience was not as happy as others. Our salads were excellent--I had the mixed lettuce/Thai vinaigrette and my husband the Caesar--as was the dessert-double chocolate whiskey pie. The... More
