Always fresh, simple, innovative dishes. The service is very good with a very pleasant staff that is well informed and eager to please. The restaurant is a 45 min drive from my home and have no problem making the drive.

I found this restaurant only average, my steak was overcooked but I'm not that picky. The wait staff was not all that good. Like I said its average.

I was at the Rivertown Bistro today for lunch with a friend. I had the Watermelon with grilled shrimp salad. I would never have thought that the combination of watermelon, Shrimp, feta cheese, pickled onions would be good. I am happy to say "Man, was I wrong!" Also had the Black Cherry Mojito and it was very refreshing. My friend... More

Well fate must have been in our lucky stars as we traveled home from our vacation. Had no idea this little town of Conway had such a gem of a restaurant. The ambiance and the food were astounding. Just an amazing experience. The banana split was just awesome. Had to be one of the best eating experiences ever.

I have been to this restaurant a couple of times and both times have been amazing. We started with a porkbelly appetizer. For the meal I had grilled scallops and other seafood. I have a salad and the dressing was amazing. For dessert we shared a homemade strawberry shortcake with homemade ice cream. It was out of this world!

the service is not always up to par. i would not suggest being in a rush, BUT the shrimp in the creole broth is soooo good. they should bottle the broth and sell it. its one of the best tasting things i have ever had. Dad likes the chopped salad also. The Happy Hour is good for food.

I continue to be impressed by this fabulous restaurant. This past week my husband and I headed back to The Rivertown bistro. Glad we decided against asking to sit on the patio as during our dinner it hailed and poured rain. We chose a table on the upper level overlooking the busy open kitchen. Our server Alex was great.

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 ally... 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
