My wife and I celebrated her birthday there the other night. We had requested a quiet booth. We got a booth but just as soon as we ordered our bottle of wine they sat a couple of loud drunks about 3 feet from our table. Ruined the whole night for us - we finally got up and changed tables on... More

We attended a private function for a friend's PHd graduation. There were about 30 of us in attendance. We pre-ordered either beef, salmon or chicken - the restaurant chose the side dishes. Even with the number of people in attendance, the delivery of the meals went smoothly. The food was still piping hot. I chose the salmon- it was not... More

Great resturant with a private feeling resturant experience. Great food and service there. You won't be dissapointed with anything you eat, and it's all cooked to perfection. Servers are helpful with selections of items if you can't decide.

I've been to River Stone twice now. Once a few years ago during Restaurant Week (I do not recommend) and again last month with a friend from out of town. This is a very nice restaurant - visually it's calming when you arrive with tons of parking, a quiet location off the beaten path, and a water element. Inside is... More

Was here for a business meeting and everything was great. The food was perfectly cooked and tasted delicious. One of my table companions had asked for a vegetarian meal, but the message hadn't made it to the staff, but they were quick to apologize and on the fly provided her with a beautiful dish to her liking. The staff was... More

Everyone raved about the food and service. The food, maybe because it was a group, was fair to poor. The SMALL steak was overcooked, and almost tasteless. The sides were small, not good. It was not worth the drive from the Outer Banks to meet the group. A totally wasted evening.

Always an excellent meal & service! Having a drink at the bar prior to being seated in dining area is nice.. Also have a cigar area, good in winter with heated fireplace. Also have small outside seating area. Dining area is set up so that you are nicely secluded from other guests. Always a great place to dine..

As usual we were visiting the middle daughter and family for the oldest granddaughters graduation and when asked where she wanted to go for dinner River Stone Chophouse was a unanimous choice. Service is always good, pleasant and professional. As for the food, we'll perfect is just a word however here at RSC it is just their way, they know... More

Highly priced . Some do was good like the sides but the main coarse failed to excite me . I wanted a rare stake and got bloody mess two times they just gotta tighten up. The last one was right and good. Just disappointed that I had to wait that long for it

My husband and I are frequent patrons of Riverstone Chophouse in Suffolk, VA. At least once a week we dine either casually or formally in this establishment. Why you may ask? The food, service, bar and management are impeccable. During the past few years I have seen this establishment continue to seize on bigger and better opportunities to make the... More
