I consider this place a great value. The steaks were delicious and prepared as ordered. I rarely, as in never, patronized salad bars, but the one at the Riverfront Steakhouse was very good. Even though I have been there before, I've never had the salad bar, as open salad bars with "sneeze shields" do not appeal to me. I was encouraged to try it by our dining companions, and it was surprisingly fresh, and well maintained with great variety. It could easily make an entire meal unto itself! Stephen was an exceptional server! We (party of 8) were there to enjoy a Pre-Concert meal, and even though half our party arrived late, Stephen got us out in a timely manner. One last thing, the wine list is not extensive, but there are some nice choices, and the prices were still very reasonable. We'll definitely go back.

The food and service was amazing as always! The music was an "ok" touch but it was entirely too loud to be able to have a normal dinner conversation, especially seated in the same room. We had great conversation while the musician was on break and the background music was playing. This won't keep us from returning, but we will request a table in the other room away from the musician.

Steaks were very good; the rolls were lukewarm, requiring us to forcefully spread the butter as the butter would not melt. Chip did a good job as our server.

Steaks are excellent cuts and seasoned to perfection! No need for a side item. The salad bar is more than enough to accompany the steak with a roll. Service is 5 star and isn't matched.

Service was great.. atmosphere was great..For a Steakhouse of that value and pricey, I expect my porterhouse and filet to be very tender, but instead they were tough.

Waitress was overloaded initially, but was more attentive in the latter part of meal. The salad bar was outstanding as normal; however, the prime rib was disappointing. This is the second time we have ordered prime rib over the last 6-9 months, and I will not order it again. There were large pieces of grizzle in the center part of the cut, flavor left much to be desired. Maybe I prefer a inch thick slice rather than 2 inches.

The food and service was great!! It was my birthday and my wife surprised me with this. It is one of our favorite places to eat. But I have to say the night was ruined by a rowdy bunch of about six couples that were seated in the atrium area. They were loud and obnoxious, cursing and laughing. We were seated next to the entertainment which we usually enjoy but we could not even hear him. Large parties should be required to use the private dining room!!

We had a group of 17 to celebrate my husband and a friend’s birthday. Since we had a large group, we were given the Blue Dog Room. Chip Wahinpngron was our server for the evening, and he did an excellent job of keeping us with drinks, bread and appetizers until our meal was ready. We were very pleased and would highly recommend.

My only problem with Riverfront Steakhouse is MY lack of restraint. I always fill up on the wonderful salad bar. The 6oz filet is so tender, moist and flavorful. The best steak in town IMO. We were there to celebrate my wife’s birthday. The waiter brought her caramel cheesecake. Perfect night.

My prime rib was mostly gristle and some fat. The meat that was chewable was tasty. Two in our party of 4 had 6 oz filets that were so blackened as to cause coughing and sneezing throughout their meal. Only one, the pasta dish was totally edible. This used to be my favorite steak restaurant but I'll think twice before returning there, again!

We love R F S H! When we are looking for a comfortable, quiet dinner we make reservations with you. We are 65 and it is getting more difficult to find any restaurant where we can visit and enjoy our friends because of the noise level in most restaurants.
We love the food! It is always delicious and reliable. The prices are reasonable. It is always so nice to have friendly service. It was noticed that the manage spend a good amount of time cleaning and making sure the salad bar was swept clean and refilled. We love the chilled plates. Thanks for our enjoyable dinner.

The food was great, service was great but when we got there the menu had been changed and what my wife wanted was not offered and the prices had been raised about 20 % because it was on Saturday following valentines . but I will say it was one of the best steak that I ever had.

I have no idea why they would call this a steakhouse... Yes they cook steaks, but have no idea on cooking a steak properly. They brag on the salad bar as being the biggest or longest in Little Rock, that's a joke. The salad bar had 2 different types of lettuce, the normal toppings, 5 additional pasta and salad sides with no type of listings what it was.
Back to the dinner, the dinners come with the so called "famous salad bar" my wife ordered the surf and turf, I ordered just a filet, waiter asks "do you want the salad bar" I said we did and don't they come with the meal.. He said yes but he just wondered if we were having one. After waiting almost an hour before being served, the meal arrived, looking at my wife's plate I knew we would be in trouble. Her lobster tail was just laying on top of the shell detached, it was flat as a pancake. They actually cooked it on a flat-top stove with a weight on it. The steaks had been cooked the same way, on a flat top stove, then after cooking the put it under a broiler a salomander to charcoll the top. Plus they couldn't even pre-pair it to the correct ordered doneness.
I figured it out that they are connected to a Benihanna next door and share kitchens.
Would never go back and waste my time or money on such a disgusting meal.
I would never waste my time or money going back here.

Was on a limited menu without any warning. My shrimp was not cooking hot but luke warm. The flavor of the shrimp scampi could’ve been improved in my opinion. I did enjoy the salad however. It was great. The service was great.

I was disappointed because I went here based on this being listed as one of the best steakhouses in the country and I expected it to be more upscale. I will say that the service would have been rated a 5 but the young lady that was a greeter was not very friendly and seemed disinterested. Maybe she was having a long night. Food was average at best in comparison to a Ruth Chris. I would go back again, I just think my expectations were too high in comparison to other higher end steakhouses I have dined with in the past. Don't go here expecting a Ruth Cris or Arthur's experience rather a grade or so below. Food is good, just not upscale level.

The food is really great and probably the biggest bang for your buck in terms of steakhouses in the Little Rock area. We both had fillets. Mine was ordered medium and cooked to perfection. My wife ordered hers medium rare and it was more on the rare side. The salad bar is a meal in itself. The rolls are the best I have ever had. The service on this night was a bit slow due to the crowd. It took about 15 minutes to receive our drinks once we ordered. That was the only negative with our visit.
