“Pleasant service and nice view of river”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013

The River Terrace Steak House offered a pleasant dining area with soft background music that allowed for a conversation - had I not been traveling alone. The clientele was generally dressed casually - from boots and a t-shirt to slacks and a dress shirt. The Filet was a bit underdone for a medium - closer to rare - so you might want to order up. Regardless it was tasty and I did not send it back. The wine selection is fairly limited particularly if you want to order by the glass. With Avalon as a $8 per glass offering, I decided to order a $4 beer. While not fancy, it is not pretentious either. The food was good and an out the door price of $34.00 with a 25% tip gives you an idea of what you might spend. The weather was too hot to sit on the terrace, but during the fall the river is well within view and seemed very appealing. Service was timely and polite and the manager gave me nice thank you as I headed out.

“Best Restaurant in Kerrville - No Contest”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2013

Kerrville is sorely lacking in good restaurants. Not one person I have ever talked to likes the well-known "other" steak house, so there has been a need for an alternative for years. And for some reason, many restaurants are closed on Monday's.

River Terrace Steakhouse outshines them all with incredible food that never disappoints in presentation or taste. And...they are open for lunch EVERY weekday from 11-3. The lunch menu is different than the dinner menu and has plenty of great choices with most under $10.

The service has been perfect on every visit. And we have not had one meal that was disappointing in any way.

Don't miss it, for dinner OR lunch!

“Superb!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

Our party of 5 chose this dining spot on a warm July evening to be close to the river and great parking availability. The service was great and the food was fabulous! We all had a variety of steak items and unanimously voted River Terrace as a must-do-again when our travels take us in or even close to Kerrville. I would highly recommend the restaurant to anyone!

“Excellent and great service!”

The food was excellent. Four of us went to dinner and we all gave it two thumbs up. We will certainly be returning.
