Great restaurant with delicious food. The salmon was highly recommended and it did not disappoint. My boyfriend was very pleased with his 10 oz steak as well. Servers were very attentive. We will definitely have to visit again!

My husband and I met some old friends here while they were in Irving on business. We drove from Fort Worth to meet them at Cool River. This place was amazing! The service was superb, the food was delicious and the atmosphere was unmatched. We couldn’t get over what an excellent time we had. This is a place fit for all. Thank you Cool River Cafe. Cheers to a prosperous 2018!

We are at cool river before a play in Dallas. There were seven of us in our party. The waiter told us the menu had been re-vamped with a celebrity chef assisting in flavors and recipes. We were highly disappointed. The steaks were tasteless and tough. I ordered creamed corn. This was literally frozen corn heated in cream. The waiter was pretty good but not anything to write about. All in all, Texas Roadhouse is better than this place.

Food was wonderful. Server was nice, but very inexperienced. We were a table of 9, so he was completely overwhelmed. It took over thirty minutes to get our first drinks.

I had never been to Cool River but they were recommended by a co-worker. The food was very good, service was very good and the ambiance was comfortable without too much noise. I would definitely go back again for personal or business opportunities.

The service was very good. The noise level was very high and it was hard to hear and carry on a conversation with others at the dinner table. For the price, I would prefer a much quieter ambiance.
