    For a restaurant that claims to serve "Prime Cut" steak, my meal (Surf & Turf) was just ok. The waiter, however was excellent and very attentive without being too obtrusive.

    We had guests from France with us this visit, and they absolutely loved it. I was concerned because the French are known for being very finicky and proud of their food culture. They my relief they both gave a thumbs up to the food, atmosphere and service. It was very full this time as there was some kind of meeting or convention and the hotel was packed. Parking was at a premium, but they offer a valet service so it was no sweat for us. We were told that the prime rib was just about out, but our waiter went to the kitchen and had them set aside the last two servings for us... the other two in our party had the filet mignon and i got to taste it... WOW! We will be back... an so will our new friends!

    We love going here for a great steak. We go for special occasions and just for a night out to eat. This is my sons favorite place to eat out for a steak. I enjoy the salad bar also. The music is also great. Don't get there too early or you miss out on the music!

    Our dining experience was all that we expected & more! The salad bar was second to none. Our steaks were cooked to perfection. The musician provided a wonderful atmosphere which allowed us to converse with our friends quite easily. The waitress was alert to our needs without hovering or being bothersome. This is where we always go for any special occasion. We will continue to dine here and not on just special evenings!

    We love to celebrate special occasions with friends at Riverfront, and go early as to enjoy the two for one special. However, we were greatly disappointed this past week when we discovered that things had changed and now the two for one had to be the exact same items. My husband likes the sirloin steak and I like the filet. Why couldn't you charge us for the more expensive item (the filet) and let us order what we preferred. Not everyone wants to eat the same item. Our friend had dental surgery and had to order the fettucini and his wife wanted a steak, but had to also order the pasta and was disappointed. Please reconsider. !!!!!!!

    Steaks are seasoned and cooked perfectly but the side dishes fall a little short. Sautéed Fresh Wild Mushrooms were just out-of-the-can button mushrooms and the Fresh Spinach Supreme was more like spinach Au Gratin...loaded with cheese. Service was excellent and overall a great experience. Would definitely go back.

    My husband and I, at the last minute, chose to eat here and it was such a good decision! The atmosphere was every nice, without being stuffy. We were able to take advantage of the 2 can dine for $24.99 between 5:00 and 6:00. The waiters are professional, the salad bar is fabulous, such an assortment of salads and all delicious. We had filet mignon and they were both cooked to perfection, the potato, the roll, everything was perfectly delicious! I can't wait to eat here again!

    The dining experience was very good. Food quality is always consistent and good quality. Orders were properly cooked and served in an appealing manner. Servers are very professional and helpful. The salad bar is notable and billed as being the largest in the area. There are lots of home made specialities in addition to chilled shrimp and a good selection of toppings. The bread that is served at the table is some of the best I have ever tasted and is served with a large portion of butter for your indulgence. There is live music in the dining area. Volume of the music is appropriate for comfortable conversation. This is a good special occasion location or somewhere to bring that special person. The price point is near the high end.

    750 characters is not enough to describe this incredible place. Food: GREAT! Service: IMPECCABLE!! Value: Better than Ruth Chris!!! Mon - Thur is two-for-one from 5-6pm froma select menu and you won't find a better deal for food of this caliber. Despite being pretty busy our dinner was served quickly and perfect in every way and our server was most attentive (thanks, Jeff!). We sat near the sole guitar player who played my request for my wife (women really like that... hint hint). If you're looking for a great escape from the ordinary, check this place out. The food, the service the atmosphere and the value are all a cut above anything else you will find in the state of Arkansas. We've got other greats on our list but this is our number 1!

    Both my date and I got the surf and turf consisting of filet mignon and a lobster tail. The steaks were cooked to perfection, both of our lobster tail were way undercooked and we sent them back. They came back out the way they should have been served. For as much money as meals cost at Riverfront you should not have to send food back.

    Server was not available most of the time and steak wasn't hot due to order setting in kitchen to long. The lobster was fried to long and has to wait 15 min to get my drink refill. At a grand total of 159.98 for 2 I would have expected more on all aspects of the dining experience.

    You may not expect much from a restaurant inside a hotel, but Riverfront Steakhouse is all about exceeding expectations, and does so effortlessly. The food is delicious and perfectly paced; the main course arrives just as one is polishing off the salad. The steaks are terrific, and the sides are generous in portion and very flavorful. It is a bit more expensive than a typical evening out, but the food and experience are so good that you won't mind at all. To borrow a movie quote, "I'll be back."

    The server was overwhelmed and truly tried to take care of all of her tables. The Riverfront Steak House has in the past been our "go to" restaurant to entertain because of it's ambiance and lovely service. This service has gone the way of the fast food restaurants and we were very embarrassed to say the least. We will avoid OpenTable restaurants in the future.

    I went back on my second visit and decided to try the big surf and turf. I should have known better than to expect a good tail in Arkansas and I was disappointed. They graciously changed my order to just a steak and it was again to die for. When you can get a perfectly seasoned and seared prime steak served on a lava hot plate that you are in for a treat. I was not disappointed as it was again perfect! I would recommend that you have your steak prepared one step rarer than normal as it will continue to cook on the plate. Enjoy!

    First of all, this place doesn't need reservations. It's a hotel restaurant. It isn't classy, the salad bar is sparse at best and my date's food was served cold in the middle and when we requested that they put it back on the grill to heat it up, it came back with light grill marks and was no warmer in the process. Being in a hotel, it has no dress code and allows people with flip flops and tattered shorts to eat alongside those of us who like to dine with some respect for what we are paying for. $135 for two people comes with some expectations and none of these were met. Plus...with a name like "Riverfront" you'd expect their patio with large windows to have a view of the river and not the parking lot.
