    The food and restaurant were good, service from our waitress was wonderful. We were shown to a table that had a nice view of the river. However... the plates and most of the silverware was filthy. It was a clean table and whomever had reset and wrapped the silverware prior to the reset had not verified if the items had been properly washed. The waitress .. who was really good, was totally embarrassed by this mess that someone had set on her table. She promptly said how sorry she was and got us new service items...we would come back again, enjoyed our meal and cocktails. Hope this does not happen again...

Only one bad thing was sitting next to a threesome who were loud !!! Older but not deaf! Their phone rang and they put it on speaker! For real?! Talking about your mani /pedi?!

    The service was excellent and the food was good. There was a lot of cottonwood swirling around the day we were there (May 20, 2014). Every time someone opened the door to the deck the cottonwood would come into the dining room, swirl around us, and land on our food or drinks. Therefore, I covered my drink and food when someone would go towards the door.

    Dined on 2/14/2014
    We spent our five year anniversary here. The food was fantastic, but the service and atmosphere need help. First of all, the management needs to teach the servers to have better manners. They mean well, and were fairly polite, but, they miss the mark of a finer place to enjoy an evening. Next, the restaurant facilities weren't that much better. The bar was more geared to mechanics or plumbers, not to couples, or ladies who prefer not to see posters of girls, and beer adds. A woman doesn't want to attend fine dining at a truck stop. The dining room was a problem too. Add carpet or table clothes, anything to muffle the noise and it would have a better atmosphere. Apart from these things the place was alright.

    We did not realize that this restaurant was attached to a Best Western. It was very busy, and clearly a local favorite, but not a fancy, romantic place as we had hoped and expected from the Open Table info. The food was quite expensive and was okay, but I think over priced. The service was marvelous though and if you are there during daylight hours the view of the river is nice.

    Our waitress provided some of the best service I have seen recently. When she found out about my wife's dietary requirements (celiacs disease) she provided a level of service that I had not seen before. She actually brought over the seasoning that was going to be used in the preparation of her chicken and my wife reviewed it to ensure that it did not contain gluten. She kept our water glasses filled and out food was served hot. I had the prime rib special and my wife had the roasted chicken. Everything was very flavorful and the quality of the cooking was really good. Just the care the waitress took to ensure that the meal met my wife's needs would cause me to return, but add to that a delicious meal, and it will become a favorite!

    Had I actually been smart enough to preview the "buffet" table first, we would have never sat down. The pasta was the consistency of glue, the vegetables were mush and there were only about 10 items total to choose from total (counting the bread basket). For $30 per person, this was almost like being stolen from. The waitress OBVIOUSLY did not want to be there and when asked for iced tea, she brought ONE and sat it in the center of the table. I guess my wife and I were going to share. Simply awful.

    Dined on 5/12/2013
    We had a party of 5 for Mother's Day Brunch. When we were seated one of the chairs was wet. The host took the chair away and never returned with another chair. It took our server 15 minute to come to our table for the first time and take drink orders. She was visibly frazzled and impatient with any request that was made. The buffet had many items empty by the time I reached the food. All egg dishes had to be ordered at the table. I ordered an egg white dish and received egg substitute - a completely different food/taste. The country potatoes with the dish had chili powder on them instead of paprika. Uneatable. I discussed this with the server and my meal was removed from the ticket. Will absolutely not return to this restaurant.

    The service was good, the food was tasty, the view was incredible. However, there was a wedding event going on downstairs right underneath the restaurant. The music (full of bass) was so loud the silverware was shaking on the table. Probably wouldn't be a much more pleasant experience on a casual summer evening out on the deck. I'm all for music, but one shouldn't need earplugs with his meal.

    Difficult to find parking was our first impression. We had made reservations, but weren't asked when we arrived. Server brought the 'lemon water' I requested without lemon--twice. Every other table got bread; we had to ask for ours. The entrees took a LONG time to come. The food was average, nothing special. The salmon with lobster sauce that I had was the special. It tasted like BBQ sauce, but the salmon was pretty good. I would consider coming back for lunch if we got an outdoor table; but, probably won't come back for dinner. Unimpressive,

    Of course it is hard to expect exceptional service on a holiday, but we weren't attended to for about 10 minutes before someone offered to get us some bread and water. Then by time we had our server finally arrive, there was still no bread... it had been a half n hour. Once we got some food, it had been 45 minutes since we had sat down. Normally Rivershore is very attentive to making us comfortable. The manager, Brian? I think, was wonderful, he made sure we were taken care of, even gave us a free appetizer since it took so long.

    This was, hands down, the worst brunch we have ever had. AND it was expensive. The buffet was set up in the bar, and set up so you couldn't hardly serve yourself. All backwards and not enough tongs. The waffles were soggy, almost no shrimp, and cheap Grocery Outlet cream puffettes were the dessert. HORRIBLE! The omlet served was a mush of scrambled eggs with salsa on top. WHO SCREWS UP EGGS?

    We usually enjoy Rivershore and love the view. However, we find it has been inconsistant in its customer service and food quality. Sometimes good, sometimes excellent, sometimes very poor. We keep trying and occasionally hit it just right. Our last server, a young woman, was delightful and very accomodating. We appreciate good service and good food. Thank you. Gerri/Joe Ballas
