I took my fiancée here on our last day at the beach. I had read some reviews on the place and it seemed to be right up our alley... Boy was I right. This has become our new favorite, while at the beach. We sat upstairs, outside on a very pretty night. The food was one of the best meals... More

We stopped at the Rivertown Bistro based on other very favorable TripAdvisor comments. We were not disappointed. Located in the Conway business district, there is a strong lunch time pull from the surrounding area. It has an unassuming storefront exterior, but blossoms into a modern bar and dining area that covers two floors. The kitchen is visible, which always impresses... More

This was my first visit & it was wonderful! Was in Conway to see a play @ TOR & wanted a good meal beforehand. Since I was alone, I opted to sit in the bar. The bar is very modern & well-appointed. Cozy banquettes & booths with a couple of high-top tables. The wine cellar is behind glass & takes... More

We really enjoyed our meal, catfish & cheese grits, the blueplate special was especially delicious. We were seated right next to the kitchen and there were 5 of us. It was noisy.

If you live in Horry county, then you probably know about the great growing downtown Conway scene. Conway is this great historic town about 10-15 miles west of Myrtle Beach. In that town are some awesome restaurants. So it is a great idea to get away from the crowds at the beach and get a great dinning experience in Conway,... More

Local gem! Try the low country "egg roll". Actually, any menu selection will please. Great service. Rather crowded at times.

This restaurant is sooooo great....a first rate place in every way! Our server Lauren was wonderful and our food was absolutely delicious. We ordered the filets and they were prepared perfectly along with the tasty side dishes. The atmosphere is also great....feels and looks like a restaurant in New York just not as pricey!!!!

I've been here twice. Both times we experienced great food and great service. Anytime we go to visit our daughter at CCU. We will dine here.

My fiance and I eat at Rivertown Bistro about four times year--she is a professor at Coastal Carolina University. Tuesday night, August 11, we add one meal with two sides and a salad with one martini each and one glass of chardonnay each . The meal, sides,salad, martinis, wine were fine; the bill received included a coffee ($2.00) and a... More
