The service was great! Filet was perfect. Our server was so soft spoken it was difficult to hear her. There was a baby screaming the entire meal, and when you pay 100 each for dinner, it seems like the atmosphere should allow you to feel less relaxed and with a capacity to dine. The people with the screaming baby kept... More

My wife and I decided to celebrate our 41st anniversary by dining at the Riverstone Chophouse. We have frequented this restaurant on and off since it first opened in 2008. The atmosphere and service in this facility are top notch. When we arrived we were extremely hungry so we both ordered the specialty of the house, steak. I ordered the... More

Had a wonderful dinner there last night. This is a more upscale restaurant so expect the menu to be a la carte and the prices to be more but the food is so delicious. I had the grilled salmon - cooked and seasoned perfectly. My husband had the fried jumbo shrimp - I got a taste and so very good.... More

My sister and I took our Dad for Father's Day. It was definitely an experience from the beautiful décor, to the waiter that was very professional in appearance, as well as knowledge of the amazing items on their menu. We started with crab dip and calamari, YUM!! The sour dough bread with whipped butter, truly enjoyed by all. The steaks... More

The waiter was great did a nice job, friendly, but the steak, for the money was only average, I had the big signature rib eye, big cut but not worth the money, my wife and son had the smoked ny strip and they both enjoyed I. not a vegas steak house, at vegas prices.

We had a business dinner in a private room on the second floor. The waiter did a great job keeping our drinks full and bringing out the salad, entree (steak,brocolli, potatoes), and dessert (chocolate cake with carmel and frosting)at the right time. He did forget to bring my dessert but it was worth the wait. Beautiful restaurant and delicious food.

The bar area is the place to go with friends or meeting people after work. It has high top tables inside and some tables in the patio. Really great feel to it. Their raw oyster bar NEVER disappoints. They usually serve a variety of fresh oysters. Right now they are celebrating Alaska Seafood Fest. We had the BEST raw oysters... More

Second meal there. First was in the private party room upstairs for a retirement dinner. Food, service and ambiance was outstanding for a party of around 20. Last night's event was for my 51 yo son's birthday. Thomas, our server, was superb. Be sure to ask for him if you go. Menu is diverse, extensive wine list and just an... More

Went here for a celebration dinner on Mother's Day. We were at the end of the rush, but were seated at our reservation time, so they were keeping up. Since we were a little early we waited at the bar, had martini's and appetizers there. Bartender was fun and not pushy about have multiple drinks. When seated the one disappointed... More

It is very expensive for what you get. And while it is close to home, the food at Ruth's Chris in Virginia Beach is better. I would eat there again, but on their discount Wednesday...for military and civil service I believe...and more likely to go for drinks and appetizers rather than the full meal
