Food was fabulous.

We had dinner tonight at Riverstone Grill. The food was delicious. The French fries were well seasoned. My husband had the sun rise burger. The egg was fine perfectly, the bacon, wonderful. The burger was cooked nicely. I had one of the restaurant week specials. I hope he keep it on the menu. The... read more

There were only 3 other tables occupied when we got there. It took at least 30 - 45 minutes to receive our food. I ordered bruschetta chicken which was way overpriced ($20) for what you got but I wanted a dinner so thought I'd try it. The presentation was awful. I few dried looking carrots and broccoli which had absolutely... More

My husband and I went in for dinner it was later in the evening we were seated in the front by the bar. No one ever came back to the table. The bartender just kept looking at us but never came over. We waited for about 20 minutes before we got up and left.

We appreciate your feedback and are glad that you enjoyed your meals. Restaurant week is a long crazy week and it is wonderful to have customers support local businesses. We apologize for the slow service we do have some new front of the house staff and are working on getting them adjusted to speeding up service times. More

We have been there several times but lately the service has been horrible. It's a shame that the service is bad because the food is good.

My wife decided on this place due to the $5 burger promo on Wednesdays to try the food and check out the menu. Upon pulling into the parking lot it was very busy. The cars were parked all over, not in any orderly fashion which made me park at furthest entry point due to not wanting to be hit while... More

There is no accommodations in the bar area for handicapped. We had to sit in dining area. They would not offer the same "Happy Hour" prices and specials in dining area. The waitress was working tables in both rooms. There was a lot of room in the bar area, but they only have high tops. Poor service.

Good food, nice atmosphere and reasonable service. We had a fairly large group of nine people. We started the evening off with drinks and the clam special. The clams were good, not great, but certainly a solid value at $4 per dozen. Then it was on to the main course. I had the grilled bruschetta chicken and found it to... More

Recently visited the Riverstone with my wife for dinner. Ordered the filet med rare. Came out well done. Waitress did not hesitate to return it for a succulent med rare replacement with extra homemade bacon...very nice! My wife enjoyed her tastey chicken that was topped with tomatoes and cheese. Both plates were served with fresh asparagus and smashed garlic potatoes.... More
