Tasteful decor set in charming downtown Conway. Menu offers both seafood and other options with interesting presentation and great sidedishes. Crabcakes the best in the whole Myrtle Beach area and rather than the boring usual sides Cauliflower puree (fabulous) and sauteed spinach. Service great and all the other diners who went with me were as pleased with their meals. Good selection of wines both by glass and bottle. Definitely, the food will bring me back.

The Rivertown Bistro has a unique small city charm that you will be surprised to find in this area! If occupies a small brick space on 3rd Ave in the quaint ciy of the old downtown Conway. They offer a small dining area downstairs with a view of the kitchen, so you can see the chefs at work, and an upstairs dining area that offers intimate booths and small tables - plus an outdoor dining deck. I've been three times so far, bringing new friends each time, and everything that we've eaten has been amazing! Their sweet potato chips are phenomenal and their "quesadilla of the day" is always an amazing combination of food - like a corned-beef, sauerkraut, thousand island dressing and cheese quesaddila which made me want another! They offer a full bar on the other side of the dining area, with booths and couches for an incredibly comfortable everning out! You MUST visit Rivertown Bistro when you are visiting the Myrtle Beach/Conway area!

We own a condo in Myrtle Beach and decided to venture to Conway for dinner one evening. We played it by ear and didn't have a reservation. We were seated upstairs and thoroughly enjoyed looking down at the kitchen. Obviously, the staff is well trained and the restaurant runs very efficiently. Our service was excellent and food was superb. We'll definitely return during a future trip to Myrtle.

The Bistro handled our reservation request for a table of table of ten with short notice and easily accomodated a late arrival. The waitress was very skilled and efficient at serving a large group. The menu had a large selection of local fare. Everyone enjoyed their dinner selection varying from french onion soup, hamburger & fries , grilled tuna to grits/sausage& shrimp. All selections were well prepared and served. The desserts were outstanding with a remarkable bourbon cake.

I have lived in the area for 6 years now and finally ventured out to eat at this establishment and it was a wonderful experience. The food was unique and tasty with great menu options like the half roasted chicken with a mac n cheese noodle cake and a more traditional jumbo lump crab cake. The menu was Southern with a high end twist. I loved the decor and ambiance of the establishment. I cannot wait to go back and try more menu items.
