Description: Welcome to the River Palm Terrace, New Jersey's finest steakhouse! We serve the finest prime beef available anywhere. Only 1% of the beef fabricated in America is suitable for use in our restaurant. Our beef is hand selected from the best-fed cattle by the finest stockyard packing companies in the west. The steaks are center cut only from U.S.D.A. Prime Beef, aged on the premises to the mellow point of perfection and then hand crafted by our own butcher for incomparable tenderness and flavor. Even our prime rib is prime. All of our prime beef is tender and juicy beyond imagination.....Search the world over, taste and savor, you'll find no other meats to compare, by any standards, with superb selections of the River Palm Terrace restaurant. This is an assurance and our promise.

“Top notch NJ steakhouse -- excellent food, drinks and experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2013

The bottom line is that the RPT is a top notch NJ steakhouse. It's expensive (general consensus), and if you go on the weekend you will probably have to wait even if you have a reservation. However, the steak, and the food overall is excellent. High quality, excellent preparation and execution.

Even when I have a reservation on the weekends, I sometimes have to wait, which I don't mind. I have a drink at the bar and enjoy the ambiance of a hard-core, high-quality steakhouse. The bar scene is very good, and the drinks are excellent. The bar and the entire restaurant is often crowded, so sometimes the staff is maxed out -- but I've always enjoyed attentive and quality service. They do a very good job here as far as service.

This is one of the best steakhouses in NJ (in my opinion).

“Reliably great steak”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 2, 2013 via mobile

Great steak, always ala carte for all sides. Pricey but really good. Busy and bright environment. Go for the food. Not a romantic spot. Great for a business meal. Very nice but officious waiters.

“For the money it was just ok”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2013

The food is good but the place itself is so small. I think the tables are too close to one another and i felt the food was not all the impressive. It was good but average and too pricey for average.

“You don't have to leave New Jersey for a quality steak!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 2, 2013

If you are feeling like a good steak or lobster or even sushi and feel that you have to go into Manhattan to get it, well you don't- just stop before you cross the Washington Bridge and drive south about one half mile to the River Palm Terrace to Edgewater, New Jersey. Delicious rack of lamb, a ribeye steak with blue cheese to die for, sumptuous lobster tails and now with a sushi bar, the River Palm will satisfy all your cravings. Top it off with one of their delicious raspberry or lemon sorbets and you have had a perfect meal.

“Service needed some help”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2013

and the food was just.. 'good' not great I much prefer the River Palm Terrace location in Paramus on Rt 4. Dinner there, while still very expensive (try $18 for an excellent crab meat cocktail), is worth the price.
