Had my retirement party here in 2013, and yes, out of about 40 people I was the LAST one served! My golf group went here recently for our end of the year banquet, and I was embarrassed. The service was so slow throughout, and the ribeye and bourbon street steaks we men received at our table were very thin, luke... More

We meet family there and really enjoyed the atmosphere. The food was very good, we opted for wraps, burgers and sandwiches. The variety that we had was all very good. We ordered appetizers and was well pleased. The waitress was very attentive and never let our drinks go empty.

Went here recently for lunch on recommendation of employees at local business. Food was decent and service was good. Decor was fairly bland.

I'll admit it. Almost every time I went to Rivers Bend I had their BLT on wheat. I was addicted. I also really liked their green beans. They were flavorful and cooked just right. Price was right too. Miss my BLTs now that I've moved.

Highly recommend the home made potato chips. They are delicious. My favorite is the Reuben sandwich.

I just had lunch and the food was good. Chicken Salad sliders. I sat by myself in the bar. The bar tender was very nice, very attentive. The service was excellent and quick. I was able to have lunch in 20 minutes which I really needed. Being from Boston, I was surprised to see ashtrays. I guess in Virginia people... More

Walked in for lunch. Plenty of open tables. Must wait to be seated, so we waited...and waited. Almost decided to call from the waiting area to be seated. All 5 of us left. Never in all my life has that happened. Too bad, I heard if you can get to the food it's good.

We went in for dinner for the first time tonight. The food was delicious. Our server was very attentive and went over the daily specials and the homemade desserts! We ordered the French dip, and the Cheesezilla steak with the roasted potatoes. Everything was tasty, I really enjoyed the au-jus for the French dip...very flavorful! The homemade cheesecake was smooth... More
