We have dined at Rivertown Bistro for dinner many times but never for lunch. What a bargain! Their lunch menu is scaled down but has plenty to offer. I had the tuna entree ($15) over wasabi cauliflower and veggies, and it was awesome. My wife had the Fried green tomato BLT on sourdough bread ($9)and she still raves about it.... More

A group of 9 of us had reservations and were seated on time. We were eating before we went to see a play across the street. The food was good and so was the server. As it turns out our server knew some of the people in our group. I can see why people love this restaurant as I would... More

Great atmosphere- We sat upstairs where you can see down through the glass where the Chef/cooking is. Pretty Cool! We went at 530- made a reservation. Earlier is probably better to beat the crowd. They open for lunch ,close, and then open back up for dinner. Check their site for times. Service was good! Food was amazing! My husband got... More

Clearly Conway's "top of the line" food venue. Definitely a must stop when one has time for a leisurely memorable meal.

We met an old friend for dinner and found an amazing new destination restaurant! My husband enjoyed the Crab-cakes with seared scallops, my friend and I chose the bacon wrapped pork tenderloin (amazing..)! The sides were delicious and sauces, sautéed vegetables and breads prepared perfectly! The service, seating and atmosphere were very pleasant, I would highly recommend this Bistro to... More

We go to Rivertown Bistro for lunch and dinner whenever we get the chance. We have taken friends and family there, and it is a Favorite with all! The food is unlike anywhere else. And the servers are on top of their game. If you really want to experience great food, great atmosphere, and amazing service, you have to go... More

While driving home from Murrells Inlet, we saw reviews & had the cell phone lead us there. The French Onion Soup ranks at the top with the best that I have ever tasted (my ex-wife's). My wife & i shared the parmesan encrusted grouper = outstanding!

My wife and I have visited RB several times throughout the years and find the food has character. Chef Darren does a good job of upscaling southern faves and varying the menu with both Tex-Mex and Asian flare. It's a beautiful facility, to boot, with an open kitchen most easily viewable from being seated on the second floor. It's the... More
