“wonderful”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 19, 2013

should you find yourself in cheraw around lunchtime, do stop at the rivers edge. charming place with delicious comfort food. i'm sure it's an equally rewarding spot for dinner - just sorry not to be local to enjoy the great food. it's encouraging to see folks who have the ambition and energy to offer such a fine dining experience.

“Get Bob's Pie”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 13, 2013

If you don't get anything else, make sure you get the Carmel cream cheese pie with toasted coconut and pecans. All the locals lovingly have nicknamed it "Bob's Pie" It alone, is worth the wait for the dessert and the meal.

Ah yes...Bob Pie! It continues to be a favorite to many. Have you been in and tried our cake version? Yes, we now have a Toasted Carmel Pecan Cream Cheese Cake! Hope to see you soon! Thanks for your kind review.

“Best in Cheraw”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2013

I love this lunch buffet. Everything is great. All of the sides are seasoned just right. The okra is one of my favorites. I don't eat the macaroni and cheese on all buffets because sometimes it's kind of bland. But here it is great. If you're in Cheraw at lunchtime, this is the place.

Thanks for the kind review! But I am not sure if you meant to leave this for our restaurant as we are not a buffet. The River's Edge used to be a buffet 4 years ago. But when we purchased it we changed it to a sit down restaurant. You are welcome to try us anytime! We have great fried chicken and mac and cheese on our lunch menu!

“Old time favorite”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 4, 2013

This Cheraw jewel is a must stop for locals and a natural stop for those coming down from the north along Highway 9 to the beach. The food is wonderful, whether you select the daily specials like the Tues sandwich:A combination of roast beef, cherry-wood bacon, provolone cheese,and banana peppers with A1 Steak Sauce, and mayonnaise. Served on a toasted sesame seed hoagie, and side of choice; or my favorite, the Trent Burger! Dinners are even more appetizing if that's possible. Portions are generous and reflect the love and care that go into each dish. And save the best for last....desserts (I can't resist their Coconut Creme Pie topped with toasted coconut and a drizzle of caramel.....oh my. The waitstaff is attentive, friendly and welcoming. The restaurant is located in an old store front on 2nd Street and decorated with a country feel (beautiful hand made quilts hang from the walls) you feel like you've returned to a more gracious and relaxed era.

“The BEST surprise find”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 22, 2013

Three friends and I stopped in Cheraw by chance on the way to Florida. We got taken immediately to our table and the owners were so friendly chatty. The service was super fast. The fried pickles were amazing and the sandwiches--to die for. But the best...

We were going to leave without dessert. The lady at checkout told us that there was no way we'd be allowed to leave without and have us a honemade Oreo on the house.

Oh. My. Goodness. Go here. Yes yes yes.
