Celebrated our wedding anniversary here with family. (3 rd time we have done this here.) Ordered the sushi as one of appetizers which was an awesome choice! The steaks and chops were excellent with great sides. Desserts were also very good. The portions of all meals were large enough that everyone took home doggie bags. The waitress was obviously new...

The River Stone Chophouse is a classy restaurant. The service is wonderful and you will be pleased with the food. My wife and I and another couple went there to celebrate a special event. Each couple shared a 22 ounce bone-in dry aged ribeye steak. Yes, I said 22 ounces. It was tender and delicious. We each had a Caesar... More

I can't really say enough about how great this place is. My wife and I decided to try Riverstone for our 2 year anniversary and did not regret this decision at all. The service was wonderful and our servers Fallon and Valerie couldn't have done a better job at making our visit feel special. They went out of their way... More

Mike Hart, formerly of downtown Suffolk's beloved Sushi Aka, (a place many still pine for) has returned to the peanut capital and settled in at Riverstone Chophouse where he serves up the most delicious sushi this side of New York! His chophouse roll, my fav, is a strip of seared beef tenderloin combined with avocado and cream cheese topped with... More

We have been here a few times hoping that it would be worth the money. The service has always been good and this time was no different. The food has always been sub standard. Now by the name this is a chop house, which to me means high end cuts of meat. I have found going out to these type... More
