Hottest spot in downtown Greer

It was surprising to find such a great variety of dishes in Greer that tasted so good! I was there for lunch and had the Cuban pork plate with beans and rice. Excellent! The atmosphere was warm and inviting.

The menu is large and prices reasonable compared to a few places around. My filet mignon was cooked To perfection. The place got loud a bit due to other tables around us but it... More

We stopped here late one afternoon and had lunch at the bar. Great selection of Angus burgers. They also offer meats with black beans and rice and plantains. Great location in downtown Greer.

I have now eaten dinner (2X) and lunch here and I must say.....everything is full of flavor! Crispy Firecracker Shrimp, Grilled Tomatoes And Goat Cheese, Grilled Pork Tenderloin and more. Service was fast enough for me and they kept my tea full. Still working my way thru the menu!

I was part of a large group that enjoyed an excellent choice of items on the menu for dinner on May 16, 2015. The service was excellent even with the restaurant at full capacity. Well organize staff, courteous and professional. Thanks! Will not hesitate to dine there again and am eager to check out lunch time favs.

My wife and I got real treat when my high school class met for dinner at this very special restaurant. The service was excellent even with a completely full reaturant with two large groups coming in at about the same time. The menu has variety and our pork tenderlojn was fanstatic! I've been told that their Cuban sanwich at lunch... More

I was fortunate to observe some real pros at work on the evening of Saturday, May 16. Due to a special event in town, this restaurant was filled to capacity, and In only an hour all patrons were served attentively with no loss in quality or service. I know of no other restaurant its size or even much larger that... More

We enjoyed the fact that the cuisine at Riveras was out of the box and original! You won't find another restaurant with the same menu. The owners are involved in every part of the restaurant, including the cooking and it shows!
