Nice balance of ambiance and food
Our adult children and their children (a party of 11) celebrated my wife's 60th birthday at Rivers. The ambiance is top-notch and the menu selection was good along with very reasonable prices. The service was excellent. It has been a long time since my wife and I have dined at such a pleasurable restaurant.

Our server was outstanding, and made the whole trip to the Rivers wotthwhile. I believe his name was Goma. He memorized our order, filled our waters promptly, and was definitely on top of his game.

Great food and atmosphere.
Great food and atmosphere. Only concern was a little more food served (i.e. perhaps add bread with the entre or a little more filling plate).

The servers were very nice. We sat on the patio and enjoyed the view of the mountains and river. We had the more exotic dishes and they were well prepared and flavorful. We will go again next time we visit Glenwood Springs.

Nice stream side view
Sunday brunch menu at 2P was nicely prepared and priced fairly. Not terrific, but definitely good. Service was nice and responsive. Outdoor seating on the deck with a stream view is pleasant. I will return when visiting Glenwood Springs.

A Romantic GEM
We celebrated our first anniversary at The Rivers and it was awesome! A great table on the patio with a gorgeous view of the Roaring Fork River and valley. The staff were perfect! Thank you so much for a wonderful evening.

Very good experience.
Took the family there on a recent vacation. The food was excellent however the service was a bit slow. They have a wide range of food selections and the food was excellent.

A wonderful restaurant
We loved it at Rivers..... Especially the river! What an amazing location. The service was very good. The menu had incredible choices. The interior was very nicely done. It reminded me of some historic buildings with restaurants in San Francisco. Antique but friendly. We would definitely go again.

Nice setting, good food
Food was good except dessert - 'smore' attempt was not edible. Waiter acted indifferent - said he was sorry. Finally had to talk with manager to have them taken off the bill. Our party of eight, including two children, was seated in the bar even though there was plenty of seating in the main dining area.

My husband and I have dined at Rivers years ago. It was delicious then and is still delicious now. This time we brought our 2 young girls. I was surprised how kid friendly they were. I was nervous about taking our young girls along but they were giving crayons and kids menus to color on, we got to sit outside and since it was early there weren't full tables everywhere. The food is always delicious! Our server was fabulous! She was very helpful, knew the menu items and was very sweet to my girls. We love Rivers and would recommend it to friends visiting Glenwood Springs.

As good as it gets
My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our 5th anniversary dinner. We sat out by the river ... outstanding atmosphere for a special night. Do yourself a favor and order the Rainbow trout ... WOW! Our server had terrific timing and didn't take away from our intimate evening. We highly recommend Rivers for casual dining or that special night ... they just get it. And don't forget the fried cheesecake. Yummy.

You will not be disappointed
We found this restaurant in an online search and that was confirmed by the desk clerk at the motel where we stayed. We try to seek out nice places to eat dinner, as that is the main meal of the day for us, and, of course, we do appreciate quality food. This restaurant hit the nail on the head on both counts. It was a little breezy on the deck that night and we choose to dine inside. Otherwise, the view from the deck would have been enough reason for us to dine outside. A very nice restaurant; you will not be disappointed.

Down by the River
Nice outdoor dining, very scenic. Food and service was good enough to warrant another visit.

We were looking for some fresh mountain trout and we found it. Great food with professional service.

Found this restaurant on open table. On the banks of the roaring fork, you can't find it unless you are looking for it. The interior looks like it belongs in Florida. The food was very good, especially the New York steak. However the vegetables on the side seemed to be an afterthought.

Best Restaurant in Glenwood Springs for that Special Occasion.

We eat there often and see many other returning customers.

Took my wife there for our Anniversary while in town. Waiter David was great, greeter was very cheery and polite. Loved the place. Food was outstanding and cooked to perfection. I had the prime rib with lobster tail, wife had the grilled chicken caesar salad.

I dined at Rivers for dinner and wished I had arrived earlier. The setting is on the river and beautiful!! I was disappointed it turned dark so soon after I arrived. Dinner was delicious! I enjoyed the trout, though I had a hard time deciding between that and the specials featuring halibut or red snapper. Service was attentive and personable. The rolls were fresh from the oven and delicious. It was a wonderful experience and I look forward to returning!

Great Overall Experience
Our first time at Rivers Restaurant was outstanding! The food was delicious and our waiter was extremely friendly and a pleasure to interact with. I had the Buffalo Meatloaf and my girlfriend had the Green Mountain Chicken. Both were outstanding!

Wonderful find of a restaurant.
I remember visiting Rivers about 10 years ago when I was in Glenwood Springs. But the experience the other night was fabulous. A friend had told me to try the "Trout Pate". Not something I would normally have chosen, but was hoping my friend wasn't crazy. It was the BEST appetizer I have ever tasted. We ordered a bottle of wine and enjoyed our conversation. Then dinner came and was wonderful as well. Highly recommend for a wonderful dining experience.
