Beautiful historic home transformed into a restaurant in historic Glen Rose. Food was very good. Wait staff was short handed, but managed ok. Reservations recommended.

Check the website said they were open but we stood on the front porch waiting. A cook walked up and said they might be closed because they had a good night last night. Called the phone and it said they we supposed to be open. We were not the only people surprised and highly disappointed about not getting brunch.

This restaurant is in an old house. Talk about charm.... They were all decorated for fall, just beautiful. Try the voodoo pasta with shrimp. For dessert have the bread pudding. Can't go wrong.

Sure a pleasant atmosphere. Staff were so friendly. Our waiter had lived in Dallas area. Food was delicious. Decided we didn't have to go to the Lodge for our anniverary dinner, this was it!

I was just passing through one evening. We decided to give it a try. I was very impressed. The restaurant is quaint. Staff aren't silver service but I found them pleasant and attentive. No complaints. Some perspective.....I am a meat and potatoes kinda guy.....I'm traveling from Plano this weekend in the hope that they have the blue cheese wedge salad!... More

We arrived in a party of 12 without reservations, so they seated us on the porch, which was a bit warm, but had overhead fans and worked quite well. The servers were some of the best we'd ever seen anywhere, really hustling and oh so helpful and friendly. They even brought glasses of ice so we could keep our water... More

After traveling to Glen Rose to eat an anniversary meal at the Riverhouse Grill, I was completely unimpressed by the atmosphere, the service, and the prices compared to the actual quality of our food. The atmosphere felt like it should be a cheap little diner type of place. The furnishings and the quality of service and communication from the staff... More

Quaint, classy, great service and delightful food. What more can you ask for in a restaurant? Closed on Monday and Tuesday, but open for lunch and dinner all other days of the week, the Riverhouse Grill features daily specials that will temp anyone's taste buds. Private rooms are especially nice for groups, and can be reserved with 24 hour notice.... More

The atmosphere was cute and quaint. The waitress wasn't very clear with explaining menu items (for example, I had asked for hot tea and she said they didn't have any available, all they had was sweet. That didn't make sense to me, so I clarified that I wanted hot tea, and she gave me the exact same answer. I still... More
