Rivertown is known to locals as one of, if not the, best restaurants in Horry County. I had dinner there twice during a recent stay and enjoyed both meals immensely. Service is attentive and friendly, with a wait staff who make good recommendations about both wines and dishes. Wine list is interesting and reasonably inexpensive. I had the blackened seafood...

Very inviting everything on the menu sounded amazing wish we could have had a little bit of everything. Our server Josh was great very efficient and knowledgeable. I would recommend Rivertown Bistro to anyone looking for great atmosphere, casual upscale dining at a great price! We will certainly be going back and trying something different on the menu everytime!

I have lived in the Myrtle Beach area for over 10 years and have eaten in all of the best restaurants. And that is saying a lot because the beach has very few memorable restaurants. Rivertown Bistro is the best of the best. Their food is consistently good. They are innovative and cook with fresh ingredients. Their service could be... More

Charming location in the heart of downtown Conway, plenty of parking and not a far walk from the shows and shops. Fast service, we had Blake and she was so sweet, answered all our questions. Food was outstanding and in perfect proportions. Vast selection of wines by the bottle or glass. Would recommend 10/10

To find a restaurant of this caliber tucked away in such a quaint little town was quite unexpected but oh so welcome. We were heading back home from our vacation and had a few hours to kill so we took a detour to Conway and stopped for lunch. The parm crusted grouper was amazing. Succulent. Fresh. The yam chips, well... More

I am moving to the area shortly and was in Conway to familiarize myself with the town. Saw some reviews when I looked up restaurants and decided to give it a try for lunch. It's not fancy on the outside but go in anyway because you will be treated to a very nice meal. Way better than I expected -... More

Frumpy looking from the outside, but a total delight inside. We walked in expecting cigarettes and stale beer. But we got a foodie place with an exquisite southern menu, professional service and immaculate ambiance. And the place was near full with locals at lunch time - a very good sign.
