Diner Reviews
  • "Had a reservation prior to arriving, walked out after 15 minutes of waiting for a server to come to our table."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "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!"

  • "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."

  • "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! "

  • "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."

  • "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
  • "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."

  • "Waiter was not to attentive. Asked for a glass of wine never received it. "

  • "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."
    Dined on 4/30/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 5/5/2014
  • "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."

  • "The steaks were perfectly prepared and extremely tender! Great spot for business dinners. "
    Dined on 4/16/2014
  • "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 always enjoy eating with the Riverfront Steakhouse family. Donnie, CHIP, Shane, Heath, Marie. They are really a nice helpful bunch. It's always a pleasure and food is outstanding!"

  • "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."
    Dined on 4/17/2014
  • "We chose to come back to Riverfront Steakhouse for our anniversary again this year. It was just as superb as last year! I wouldn't have changed anything about the food or service. We felt taken care of, but never rushed. You have the best steaks I have ever eaten. Thanks for making our evening even more special!!"
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "We were pleasantly surprised at the cozy, yet sophisticated atmosphere inside this restuarant. Nicely lit so that you can read the menu but dim enough to give it an intimate feel. Tables spaced so you can have private conversations. Probably one of the swankiest restaurant's in NLR. The food and service were both fantastic. Another great Fletcher restaurant."

  • "One of the best steaks in town. Service was good, though a little overbearing. Love the salad bar! The guitar player was fantastic. Normally, having entertainment in such a small space is annoying but he was really great."

  • "Our first experience with Riverfront was outstanding. It was my parent's 44th wedding anniversary and they made it so special. Thanks to Heath and the supervisor on duty for their awesome job!"

  • "Riverfront Steakhouse serves up large portions of food, whether that's a perfectly cooked steak, fried chicken, or any of the other items on its varied menu. The quality of the beef is equaled by the careful attention to how it's cooked, producing some of the finest steaks we've ever had, including some of the more famous steakhouses in the country. The setting is pleasant, casual, and comfortable, but it is not elegant. If you're looking for a romantic setting, I'd recommend going somewhere else. But if you want excellent food served up by friendly, unobtrusive waitstaff, and a fresh and varied salad bar, then this is your place. I most definitely would go back."
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "This is my favorite place to eat. The salad bar has a huge variety of food from normal salad toppers to vegetable dishes like artichoke hearts, broccoli dish, cheese dishes, even baby shrimp! You can make the best salad ever! I always get steak and it is the best filet I've ever had! Their baked potatoes are huge so share! Fried rice is so good and their homemade rolls with butter are to die for!!! This is the place I always pick and they never disappoint!"

  • "We made reservations 1 month ago! We called to confirm reservations and were misinformed by your employee! I left a few messages for the night manager and did not receive a call back! We live out of town! Our food was cold we had about 28 people in our party with one server! I was very displeased! Whom ever takes care of online reservations should confirm with the customer & the restaurant ! Great surprise party(disappointed in how our group was handled! Poor management & communication as we never met the manager that evening!"
