    Prices have gone up. Best time to go is happy hour! Food good as usual. Salsa seems to have more kick this time, have a drink handy.

    Normal Chevy's restaurant. Service was a real issue. Don't know if they were short staffed or what but service was poor. Waiter didn't get us water when asked. Order was input wrong and didn't come at the same time. Never checked on us after receiving food. Had to flag him down to pay the check.

    I love Chevy’s on the river I always have a great experience and my Girlfriend loves it too. The only reason I gave 4 stars out of 5 on this particular visit is due to the fact that it was a reservation at 7pm which was probably around the busiest time of the night so the service was slightly rushed but I completely understand that Valentine’s Day is a busy night. Any other day 5 out 5 stars.

    Michelle was a fantastic waitress. We had 16 people for a retirement luncheon, and she was so responsive and just did a fantastic job. Was very impressed with her, the food and how everything was ready when we showed up.

    Brought 6 YO granddaughter with us on our 43rd anniversary. Antonio went way out of his way to ensure her experience was as enjoyable as ours. Mater de (6'6" giant didnt get his name) was awesome. Wife & I come here every Aug 2 and Dec 4 (minus COVID). This was the BEST of 15+ years eating at Chevy's on the River. Kudos to what appears to be a new chef. Chili Reyano (spell ck) was the best EVER! Thx Walter Long

    We were a party of 16 there to celebrate my oldest daughter's 19th birthday. Half of the party arrived a couple minutes early. The host attempted to seat them with another party. After the confusion was resolved, the manager was incredibly rude and uninviting as they sat them. The waitress was very good. She was kind and attentive and very quick. The problem was with the drinks and part of the food. The bar made drinks were just not good. My husbands margarita had a gnat floating in it that had mixed in with the black salt. My nephew is a picky eater. He wanted the combo plate with tacos and just meat and rice. The first time, they came out with veggies, cheese and everything. So, we asked to have it remade. They were brought again. It looks liked they just scraped the not wanted items out. So, he wouldn't eat them. To be safe, he just ordered something from the kids menu. He was charged for the wrongly made meal and the kids lemonade he had with his food. As we finished our food and was debating on dessert, a rat crawled down from the ceiling to the ground towards the kitchen (we were sat in front of the open kitchen doors- quite loud). We quietly alerted the waitress. She was disgusted but not surprised. We settled on ice cream to be safe from the obvious rats. At this point we started really noticing how gross and disgusting the place was. The "art" above where my daughter sat was covered in "spit wads" and the kitchen was dirty. At no time did the manager offer any apologies. And in addition to the extra, incorrect charges there was a surcharge that couldn't be explained. We paid, we tipped and we left. We won't return. Nor will we continue to order catering from Chevys in the future. I highly suggest pest control and training for your management.

    Server was moving as fast as she could but somehow they put in all four tickets (3 tables were seated after us and we waited 45 minutes for our food and got it after the three that came later than us. Manager was nonexistent and should’ve been helping the server who was overwhelmed by four tables being seated within 15 minutes of each other. Ate half of our fajitas before getting the flour tortillas. Seems like a serious disconnect between tickets going in to kitchen and manager. Saving grace was the server. Not happy with the kitchen or manager at all.

    The food and service were good. The outdoor seating near the river was very good. I just have a problem spending $50 (tax and tip included) for my chicken dinner and dessert. $40 would have been more reasonable for the value I got.

    Between our drinks and our food to much time in-between. We had to ask for more chips and salsa, had to ask for more tea and water. After ordering our food it took 35 - 40 minutes to get and we did not get it all at the same time. The food was good.

    Our waitress, Michelle, was wonderful. Friendly and attentive. The food was excellent and we came home in a food coma. I hope we will be back soon. We had reservations for 11:45 lunch and found a parking spot just steps from the entrance. A great way to celebrate our 53rd anniversary!
