I went to Riverside Grille on Labor Day Weekend especially to hear Jimmy Stagger, live blues entertainment. Prior to going, I reviewed the menu online, and saw several food items I wanted to try. Everything was great for my first visit to this restaurant: cocktail, salad, french onion soup, bacon-wrapped meatloaf, and flourless chocolate cake for dessert. I sat on the deck next to the river, about mid-way up to the "front," so the music volume was just right for me.
Best time! Service was amazing! It was a loud night out on the porch but other than that is was awesome!
I want to love it here but I just do not. The food is so expensive and there is not a lot to choose from. Wine is good!
The food was very good.
Our experience centered around how they treated us. They were outstanding. We sat outside on the deck overlooking the Rogue River. We were also next to the door. The door had an annoying squeak in the last 1/8 of a door close. It was a very busy door. Very annoying. We mentioned it. They sprang into action. They offered to move us. Surveyed the door to understand the problem and try to fix it. They thought they may not be able to resolve it so they changed the behavior of the staff to keep the door from making noise.
Long story short. Our experience was important to them. They certainly demonstrated our importance throughout the meal. It was a great experience. Go eat dinner at Rockford Riverside Grille.
Would definitely go back. Loved everything except the restaurant week pulled pork meal. Loved the salad but really did not like the pulled pork or the potato salad. The herbs in the potato salad were very overwhelming and it was like a chunky soup. The pulled pork had some fat in it and the flavors were intense! I am not a picky eater so i was very surprised at how much i disliked it. Anyway, i would definitely go back. Everyone else’s food looked great!! Service was great as well!!
AWESOME place! Great staff. Great food. EAT HERE! you won't regret it!
Our food was delicious, the wait staff was awesome, and we are looking forward to our next visit!
Delightful evening sitting outside by the river, good food, excellent service.
Great food and experience. Wonderfull patio overlooking the river.
Fun, casual or dressy restaurant wirh great food. Good for any occasion.
We had a great experience! The service was fast and the food was awesome! We will definitely be back.
We had the Meat Loaf and Kale salad. Amazing! I would say the helping was a bit bigger than it needed to be. We will be back! Great time!
This restaurant location recently changed hands. I love the location BUT the price of the entrees does not match the server level. My entree was $23 and tasted great but server worked as though he served for TGIFridays. The hostess handed me a specials card for the evening entrees and never let me know they “ran out” of several items on the specials for the evening. I probably won’t return even though the food was really good.
They didn’t seem to have down that we requested the patio, although we were seated out there....in the sun.
I was there for mothers day with my wife and kids. Aside from the gorgeous hostess, the vew was great and the food was amazing and feeling. they treated us with respect and they even changed our table, so we could have a better view. Our waiter was very kind and the food came at a perfect time.
Excellent customer service! Drinks were delicious, and so was the food.
Great food. Great service. We will be back!
A little sad to see the old menu go, but the food was good.
We have supported The Green Well at the original location and we were elated when they came to Rockford. This change to us is a bummer. The menu is small, the food is overpriced, the wine list is small and the drink list is small. Gone are a few staples we love. We will still go for the sake of sitting on the patio in warmer months otherwise we are not fans of the change.
Always a great experience with Staff and the food is delicious!! One of my favorite places to eat
We have dined at the Cherry St location so we wanted to check out the Rockford location. The food was good but way overpriced. We definitely did not feel we got a good value. $14.00 burger and just chips as s aside?! Drinks were overpriced too. Not paying $10 for a glass of wine!
All good with the exception the chef was a little heavy handed with the salt on both of our entrees.
I loved the food and service. It was very loud, but went on Valentine's Day, so it's to be expected. Did not like where we were seated. In a odd, un comfortable corner with other couple packed in right next to us. It was awkward to say the least.
Meal was great. Service was FANTASTIC. It was very noisy, but it was Valetines Day.
Great Sunday dining experience. We ordered the house bottle of Rose' which was excellent. For food we got the Perogies, the frites, the harvest salad and veggie bimbimbop. Had the brownie with ice cream for dessert. Enjoyed everything. Wish there were more vegan options as one of us does not consume dairy, there was not a dessert they could alter or serve as vegan. Overall nice environment.
Had an English friend from China visiting and we went to the Green Well in Rockford. I had been at the Green Well in EGR many times, but this was the first chance to visit the Rockford location. All indications are the Rockford location offers as much quality and service as the EGR location. Sometimes good restaurants may vary by location, but I did not notice any. Our table was ready at the time of our reservation. The wait staff was knowledgeable, courteous, and timely, without being too intrusive. The food was quite good and the portions were generous. As a table we shared three appetizers, three entrees and three desserts. There was food remaining from each serving-all due to portion sizes and not a reflection on the quality of the food.
I would recommend this location, as well as the EGR location to anyone interested. I think you will find consistently good food with a good variety of gastro pub selections, each with a little twist to set it apart from the other restaurants competing in the same space.
Nice work Green Well!
Food is excellent and atmosphere is very casual! Unique blend of flavors that are so Yummy. Never had a bad meal.
Great appetizers, soup, entrees! All very good.
Happy & informative server also.
We had a wonderful time. If the noise level was loud it was us. We had a sisters Christmas there and it was perfect. We maybe need a bit more room but that was my fault asking for river side..(too dark to see) We had a great time and the food was really good!
I asked for Champagne to be on the table when we got there and it wasn't. The noise level was bad. (maybe add some sound dampening panels) I don't like the TV's. I think the TV's need to either go or somehow be more for the bar and not affect the other tables. It makes it feel like a sports bar and I think Greenwell is more than that.
Service was very slow, and food was bland. Not nearly as good as it was the last time we were there. We'll think twice about going back.
We have been to Greenwell two times and both times have enjoyed it immensely. The food is delicious and such great service. The view is beautiful overlooking the river and the atmosphere is quiet so you can carry on a conversation with those across the table.
We both had the amazing special coq au vin and it was simply fabulous. Our wines and IPAs were both nice and reasonably priced. As for the dessert we split (actually our spoons started fighting for it!)....it was rainy night comfort food at it's finest: Bananas Foster Bread pudding with vanilla ice cream. Our waitress, Cole, was just the right friendly, and Jessie, the manager was accommodating as he adjusted the lighting and posted for a photo with us. Great evening!
We've been there a few times now, and it's always been good. Sandwiches are big enough for two, or leftovers the next day! I've had their turkey sandwich several times and it's very good, especially after we learned we can order it less buttery. Truffle fries & aioli are too good, and the bananas foster is delicious!
I quite like one of the beers they serve, but my husband hasn't had the greatest of luck w/ mixed drinks.
Slightly noisy and a bit chilly but friendly staff and good food.
Overall good. Ambience lacking; tables in straight rows and close together. The food could be warmer; serving on hot plates would be an improvement.
We liked it very much and will be back. I felt the atmosphere s but loud with the bare tables and concrete floors. It felt a bit cold.
I ordered my favorite, mac and cheese. My son whose birthday we were celebrating had the black bean salad with shrimp while my husband had the fish and chips. My dish was very good, but my son and husband rated theirs as average. My husband commented that his fish was cold, and the staff offered a free dessert. I opted for the lemon cake with strawberries which was pretty poor, we ate about half. I think the restaurant is pleasant enough, but the food needs to be stepped up to match the prices they charge.
The cocktails and food aren't made as well as Green Well in GR. The music was some jungle techno beat that never stopped repeating.
Great food, great service and well rounded menu.
