My family and I enjoyed a quick and tasty lunch at this wonderfully charming restaurant located in an historic house very near the center of Glen Rose. The Riverhouse Grill has a small but accessible menu, including fried pickles, soups, sandwiches, and a select range of entrees (such as catfish and chicken fried steak). We enjoyed our soup and sandwiches... More

Great ambiance and even better food! My wife and I showed up after a long drive from Houston and weren't really sure what to expect; it was open and we were hungry! They have done the place up nicely and our daughter was sleeping so we indulged in the atmosphere. I had the steak and my wife had the shrimp... More

Delicious food, fresh, cooked perfectly, nice ambiance, old world charm and very attentive waitstaff. The boneless grilled pork chop was very moist with delicious flavor and the sautéed veggies were fresh and NOT frozen....one of the true marks of a really good eatery. Real butter and not oleo served with the yeast rolls...another mark of a quality restaurant. I would... More

We were very impressed with the chef quality of excellence in each and every thing on our plates. He even made yellow squash knock my socks off! I had salmon and my husband had Rib eye. The menu was well rounded and each dish was made special. Our waitress was excellent. The house is an original one from turn of... More

Fabulous food, wonderful service, great ambiance...what more can you ask for? It really was so good I went back the following night! Highly recommend the pork chops, the mac and cheese, and the chicken marsala. In a turn of the century house bought from the Sears Catalog!

My husband and I spent the weekend close to Glen Rose to celebrate his birthday. We went to Riverhouse Grill for dinner on Saturday night. We had made reservations not knowing if it would be crowded or not. When we arrived a table was not ready and we sat at an outside table until our table was made ready. The... More

The food is upper scale, but casual enough. Service was great; food was great. There are not many options in that area if you're not looking for fried or quick food. We'll go back.

You have to get the pork chop. It is excellent. My wife got the pork chop while I got a streak. The steak was very good, but my wife got the chop and all I can say is wow. We also ate a Sunday Brunch and I had the chicken and waffle. My son was laughing at me but it... More
