Lovely surroundings, charming waitress, tasty food

This was our first visit to River Company, which on the other side of the New River from Radford University (directly across from Greenhill Apartments). It has a lodge feel, with a big old stone fireplace and comfortable booths. You can eat on the patio outside. You can also view the brewery... read more

All I can say is for these prices you've got to be kidding me. Accommodating customers? Not a chance. Inventive food? nope! Nice-looking looking interior yep.

It was my first time at this restaurant and I enjoyed it immensely. I was with friends from VA Tech whom I had gone to the Spring Game with. The food was excellent and the service, plus they have a great veranda which will be great to sit out on when the weather is nice and you can look out... More

Our first visit and enjoyed the location, views, on-site brews and good food. Steaks looked good but chose the seafood. Seafood was overcooked and sat under the heat lamp too long. Great service.!

We read about the steaks and thought this would be a great dining experience. Don't waste your money! They were the worst steaks we ever had! My husband's, ordered medium rare, was like eating rubber. Mine, ordered well done, was dry and not at all flavorful (I've had many well done steaks that were delicious elsewhere). The baked potato I... More

My daughter (25) and I were visiting the area and decided this sounded like a good place for dinner. The sides that came with my grilled portobello were incredibly salty. Her pizza was good. The waiter was pleasant but forgot our appetizer. It you're just going for a beer and pizza - this is your place - especially if you're... More

We tried a number of their beers and a couple of wines with our group there to celebrate a family occasion and liked them all. The food was great with large servings so we each left stuffed. The fireplace was going inside and the views were amazing off the deck. It was a great place for us to visit on... More

River Company is one of the go to places in Radford for out of town guests. Elegantly laid back with a SW Virginia feel. Good food, decent micro brewed beer and fantastic views of the New River. Little on the pricey side for a regular eatery but expected for special dinners with family or friends.

This is not a 5-star establishment, but it is a great place to eat and the best place in the area, other than Sal's. Ambiance and views off the balcony are excellent and the dining environment is very clean and cool. Food is good but too over-priced to be a truly family friendly locale. The Farmhouse Hefeweizen is the best... More

I visited the River Co. Restaurant this past week for the first time. This ended up being the perfect spot for a lunchtime business meeting and the views from both inside the restaurant, and outside from the surrounding golf course, were amazing. The restaurant is perched on a hill above the river and the atmosphere is very nice. I loved... More
