Lunch on the River

Ate here 4 times, during our stay, mixed reviews, most food very good, one fish dish under cooked, one time it was very busy and we had a long wait for service and food. It is convenient if you are staying in the Hilton. The salmon salad is definitely a winner.

We had reservations for a party of 19 and the staff did an excellent job getting the table together and seating us. Charles did a fantastic job waiting the table of 19 people after originally saying he was going to have two other staff working with him, he was left alone the remainder of the evening. He stayed on top... More

Love this place. On my journey to find the perfect margarita, this place can do it all. They made a margarita to my specifications perfectly! On top of that, the coconut shrimp was very good with the apple chutney that accompanied them. My daughter had a huge cheese burger that she couldn't finish. My wife had the prime rib. It... More

I stayed at the Hilton a few days for a business trip. The River's Edge is the hotel's restaurant, but soooooo much better then hotel food. Great food and even better service by my go-to server Luis. He absolutely went the extra mile and gave 5 star service each night. Even the time I grabbed lunch-to-go from the bar, he... More

This spot was nice for appetizers. The street tacos were pretty good. The wait staff was just okay. Meh

100 bucks for food that was quite obviously taken from a production line and microwaved. Incredibly loud and annoying atmosphere as there's a Irish pub not door that likes to sing. Avoid at all costs. Service was nice.

Beef Fajita Nacho appetizers, yummy! I had an $18 fajita salad, 14 year old daughter had a $17 chicken ceasar salad, hubby had an italian pasta dish for $18. All meals were large servings. The fahita beef was tasty, but no shell or chips, chicken was chewy, pasta was average.

After our conference we all descended on the bar unannounced. The staff handled us professionally and efficiently. They were great. The bar is right on the Riverwalk, nicely decorated. A very pleasant experience!
