Favorite place in town! Chef Becca is a genius! I had the New York strip medium rare and it couldnt have been better. Cooked to perfection, her sauce and grilled zucchini are to die for. Gordon's service is what I look for in a waiter at any restaurant I visit. Perfect description of the menu, he makes your mouth water... More

After a mistake, we had a very nice meal. I ordered the elk steak, but asked first whether it would be tender. Our waitress said that depended only on how I ordered - rare being the most tender, tough as it is more well done. I ordered medium rare. When it arrived, it only took a couple of bites to... More

When looking for a lovely night out look a bit off of the beaten path and check out Rivers! For a birthday dinner, the ambiance could not be beat. The restaurant was upscale but not stuffy, detailed, but not overbearing. Then came the food... Caitlyn was our server and she recommended the Elk and the Prime Rib. Everyone at the... More

The restaurant was packed at 8:00 so it was a favorite with the locals. The food was decent and the service was very quick and efficient. I would give it 4 starts out of 5.

Food was excellent and the service we received from Caitlyn was superb .. I had the Ruby Red Trout with lemon and butter which was cooked to perfection. The corn chowder is a must..it was so creamy and cooked perfectly. My husband had the blackened pork tenderloin, with veggies and mashed potatoes. The rolls were warm which is a favorite... More

Was in Glenwood springs for an anniversary trip, tried this place one night, and WOW. The food was really good, not great, but really good. What sold us on going back the next night was the view as we ate on the deck overhanging the Roaring Fork River. This river is a clear as a bell snowmelt river coming down... More

This was a lovely upscale restaurant with great food. I would highly recommend it. The service was lacking, but I believe it was because of a wedding reception.

My husband and I came up to gws sans children to celebrate our anniversary. We tried many restaurants, but this was by far our favorite. Great building, but eating outside on the deck listening to the river was the best! Service was great, and the food was the best of all the restaurants we visited. It was perfect for a... More

My 5yo son and I ate here after seeing pretty good reviews. We asked to sit by a window and were seated right away. The food was very well prepared and tasted delicious. The atmosphere was calm and pleasant but I didn't feel like I had to sush my kid the whole time. Very nice experience. We will be back.

I ate here with my family. The food was really good and the servers were very friendly. This place is right along the river which had very pretty views. I would eat here everyday if possible.
