Disappointed in this visit to Chevy's. Waitress did not serve us refills and did not once come over to see how we were doing. We will think twice before going to this location again.

Service was fantastic - nice, attentive and check on us at just the right time, not overbearing and we were not forgotten. Food came out VERY quickly. They are undergoing remodeling construction right now, which is the only reason for a lower rating in one area. Hopefully it will be great once it's completed.

Their bar is under renovation, so if you want Happy Hour, you have to head up to their Cantina.

Chelsea was a great waitress, and has a great sense of humor. We had Carnitas Fajitas as we do every time. It's a favorite of ours and no one can beat the chips and salsa. It's the best!

Excellent service from start to finish. We were seated quickly, chips & salsa on the table as soon as we sat down, ordered right away, and meals served much faster than I ever expected, especially on Christmas Day (we were traveling). Food was excellent, even for my picky children. Thank you Chevy’s!

Food & service were top notch. The bottomless Mimosas were a bargain. Each booth seemed to have at least one bench seat covering ripped or very worn. I used my coat as a bench covering & sat on it.

We actually left after being seated. The restaurant was freezing cold. As we had just spent the afternoon outside playing golf, we were not prepared for the temperature in the restaurant. Therefore, we left after being seated and before we were served.

Fajita steak meat was bland and tasteless. This used to be Chevy’s Signature dish. Very disappointing. Service was attentive, but staff was very stoic.

It's been awhile since we've been to Chevy's on the Riverfront. Our food and service were excellent. The restaurant, however, could really use an update as it looks rather raggedy -- just saying.

We had a Saturday afternoon late lunch (1:30 pm) on the patio. Even though it was a very warm day, it was comfortable under the shade of the covered section. Our server was friendly and helpful; we couldn't have asked for better service. There were three of us, each ordering a different salad from the lunch menu. I particularly liked the fajita salad, which included the sizzling platter of meat and vegies. It was lovely to look out at the trees and the river. We all enjoyed the whole experience and will definitely come back.

Johnny greet us when we came in . Provide us drinks and chips as soon as we walked in. We were like, awesome, it is going to be a great night...but noooooo. After we got our table , no one came to us for over 39min. I had to look for a manager to get service. After other 15min we flagged a waitress down and she said sorry that's not my table. Finally after 80min , someone came over and ask if we need anything else ...really ???...anywho we order some tacos and left. Only Johnny was great...everyone else were the worst.

The food was horrible, the waitress spilt food on my wife that was hot liquid. The management was horrible and would not do anything about it. Wouldn’t fix the food errors and didn’t care that I would not be a repeat customer.

Our server was awesome! …front door greeter person not so much. Stood there (with no line) for 10min before even being greeted, then Lots of frowns & annoyance until the manager approached (she was great!). Maybe just a bad day?! … and be ready for flies inside… lots of flies! Ewww.

We decided to eat outdoors on their balcony overlooking the river. This was a BIG mistake. We had a very hard time eating our food because of all the bees swarming around our food. When we mentioned this to our waitress, she mentioned they were aware of the problem but hadn't told us about it when they seated us at the table. We asked to move to another table, but that wasn't much better. They never apologized for the problem. Next time, I think we will go to their restaurant in Elk Grove.

First time that I've dined here in quite a while. Food was good. Wide selection of choices. Had the Chipotle Chicken Enchiladas and my companion had the Beef Enchiladas. We both enjoyed out lunches. Due to the outside temperature, we dined inside. Still had a nice view of the river.

Three of us went for my moms birthday, while the service was good, our food was not. The salsa was bland, the wings were room temperature and not very flavorful, the enchiladas and tacos were bland and not very good. Also the food came out cold. The best part was the fried ice cream.

I usually enjoy this place but the entire staff was just a hot mess, and that trickled down to the food and our drinks as well. Just getting checked in for our reservation took 20 min and when I got someone’s attention to say I was here for a reso, she (a a manager, it seemed) said “that’s nice” and walked off. Had to ask for refills of our bottomless mimosas, and we only got 2 refills in the almost 2 hours we spent there (most of it waiting). If it looks like “the B Team” is working, don’t stay. Come back and look for their A Team.
