  • "We always order the blackened bone in rib eye. It is always cooked to perfection. The salad bar has an extensive selection. We always eat here when we are in town."

  • "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."

  • "I was pleasantly surprised. My wife and I really enjoyed our visit. The steaks were awesome and service was great. I will most definitely tell others about this place. It was a great dining experience."

  • "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."

  • "The food is wonderful. The salad bar is extensive and delicious. The steaks are perfect. They are aged and seasoned so that they melt in your mouth. Staff is attentive to your needs and we love having such a great restaurant in our city."

  • "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 steak was by far the best I have ever tasted and was cooked to perfection. Everything on the salad bar was good. Our waiter Shawn was great!"
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "It is hard to imagine having a better cut of meat. In addition the thick filet was cooked to perfection and all the food was at the correct temperature. The chocolate mousse pie was an exceptional finish to the meal."

  • "Steaks are great. Serving staff are friendly and attentive."

  • "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."

  • "Our favorite steak restuarant. Dissappointed that the two for one special was not an option on "concert" nights. My filet was overcooked and not as good as expected nor in the past. DEFINITELY need addtional bar help for after the concert!"
    Dined on 6/10/2014
  • "Took a lady on a first date to and niether of us had ever ate there. This was the BEST steak I have ever ate. The salad bar was excellent taste and variety. I would recommend this to anyone."

  • "Steak was extremely tender and excellent! Service was decent, but took a long time to bring us our wine."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "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! "
    Dined on 5/28/2014
  • "Whenever I travel, I seek the best prime steak in town. The steaks (yes, it was so good I went back the next night) was one of the best I have ever had. Do not miss out on this great steak place!"
    Dined on 5/27/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 5/23/2014
  • "The steak is cooked to perfection with seasonings that make it melt in your mouth. Definitely the best steak I've ever had and I've eaten at restaurants all over the world. If you want the best steak you'll ever have, this is the place to go."
    Dined on 5/23/2014
  • "What is Open Table? We love Riverfront Steakhouse but the prices dictate that we only eat there for a special occasion. Consequently, meals there are limited to 5 or 6 times year. I would recommend it hands down to anyone seeking a wonderful meal, particularly one that includes any cut of beef. Our visit on 5/17 was a wonderful one as usual. "
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "There were three of us. Each person ordered their steak prepared a different way. All were were done exactly as requested. Salad bar items were extremely fresh. The crab cakes were delicious and big. The baked potatoes are huge! We told the waiter that two of us were going to split one - he brought it out already split on two plates, and it was delicious. The desserts were unbelievably good. This was our third or fourth Riverfront experience, and there will be many more."
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "This restaurant was a great surprise. We almost cancelled our reservation when we saw that the restaurant was located in a hotel. Hate to be this way, but so many times hotel restaurants are just average. I am so glad we ate there, though. The food was fantastic, and amazing value. I had a 10 ounce lobster tail for only $29.95, and this included the amazing salad bar. My husband had an extremely tender well prepared filet. We will definitely go back the next time we visit Little Rock."

  • "Excellent food, attentive servers and a nice wine list. Top that off with a romantic ambiance and live music and you have the perfect place for a special occasion."

  • "Expected a "riverview" with the name and a picture of the river in their ad....it should be called The Parking Lot View Restaurant. After getting over that disappointment, the service was good and the food was good. But never would we go to a restaurant for a nice evening out that overlooked a hotel parking lot and pay those prices."

  • "The salad bar had a huge variety. I could have made a meal on that! Our filet was cooked perfectly. We had the sweet potato fries. The sauce served with them was wonderful. Our waiter Chip was terrific. We will definitely dine here again."

  • "My wife and I really enjoyed the steak! It was cooked to perfection. They also have a great salad bar. The Riverfront Steakhouse is located inside a hotel which made it a bit confusing to find. The wait staff were courteous and made the appropriate suggestions as to what to eat."

  • "The Riverfront Steakhouse provided a very memorable experience for our seventh anniversary. The hostess and waiter were very pleasant and knowledgeable. The steaks we ordered were prepared exactly as we wanted and tasted great. One thing though, if you order the baked potato, be prepared to eat only half of it. That thing was HUGH!"
    Dined on 4/28/2014
  • "The meal and salad bar were both excellently prepared and presented. Every bit of our meal stayed warm and was served at eating temperature. The backed potato was warm to the last bite while there was never a worry about being burnt by hot food. Taste was remarkable, steak, potato, tuna salad, shrimp all were wonderful delights."
    Dined on 4/22/2014
  • "The salad bar isn't as impressive as they boast. It seemed a little out to date for topping choices. Just your traditional toppings. Lettuce wasn't that fresh. The waiter seemed to disappear throughout the night. I had to drink out of my husbands class to get some water. Apparently the other waitresses standing around don't help out. I think this place is in the need of some updates. "

  • "We celebrated my wife's birthday at Riverfront Steakhouse this past week and had a really good experience. The only negative thing that we really mentioned was that the restaurant was in need of a makeover. The quality of food and even its service didn't really match its environment. I am sure they get a lot of business type folks that don't care as much, but a little attention to this detail could go a long way. Overall, we were extremely pleased! Thanks for the memory."
