Full of Flavor

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.

Dined with a very large group. The food was excellent and the service was very prompt. I will definitely be putting Rivera's on my list of favorite restaurants. I will be going back soon.

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!

We had lunch at this upscale spot in downtown greer. The food was excellent-well prepared and tasty. Staff was very friendly and attentive. Just a very nice place which I intend to visit again-I know dinner would be gray as well

When it comes to old-fashioned, cozy downtown areas, Greer's fits the bill but is smallish - that said, there are a surprising number of restaurant choices and all three I've eaten at have been unique and very good. A few days ago, during a visit from some Florida relatives, we wandered through the area, and settled on a a place... More

Rivera's always serves great food in a friendly atmosphere. Greer has surprisingly excellent restaurants for a small town and Rivera's is our favorite.
