The steak was too salty, the bake potato should be included. The salad bar could include some updates.
Beets, pineapple and cottage cheese and more crackers of different kinds. Restaurant is a little worn for those price.
The Pinot Noir was surprisingly good with 3 choice. Nice server and the music was a plus.

Planned for a visit on a BOGO Monday - Wednesday special and, as expected, was not disappointed. A special menu allows for a good variety of selections for their special which also includes sides, unlike the a la carte menu. Service by Stephen was quick, efficient and helpful.
The night began with a trip through their fabulous salad bar. Beware, the salad bar can easily become a meal (a good meal) unto itself. The upcharge for salad was quite reasonable, yea even inexpensive but well worth it.
Entree selections were made and included a petit filet and prime rib. Both were ample and delivered cooked as ordered. The filet was broiled with a slight crust of a pepper heavy spice blend, somewhat a trademark in my mind of Riverfront. The plate-full prime rib was quite lean with a tasty au jus and a creamy horseradish garnish that also was very tasty. Both meals came with a HUGE baked potato on a small side dish; so small it precluded slicing and full dressing with the butter, sour cream and cheese options that were provided. It was impossible to dress the spud in advance due to limited dish size; seemingly easily corrected with smaller potatoes or bigger plates. While all was good, tender, hot and delivered in a timely fashion, multiple intermediate preparations were necessary.
Entrees were also accompanied by some al dente, slightly sweet carrots which provided a good contrast of flavors and a bit of color.
As usual, the rolls are quite good; hot, soft with a fairly fine crumb and a rich, yeasty flavor. The rolls are always a highlight! Apologies to the gluten-free folks.
Riverfront has a good wine list with several by-the-glass options are quite reasonable prices. As one would expect, the bottle list was greater but also competitively priced.
It was time and resources well-spent; consistent with multiple past visits. One must love consistency, especially in the quality department.

Had a waiter tonight that looked and acted new.
He was awful. Kept disappearing. Would hang out at the hostess desk at the door. Worst waiter we have ever had here. Steak was good as usual. Asparagus was cold. Hardly anyone in there eating, so there is no excuse for poor service. Had to ask for bread! Bread was overcooked and hard on edges!
Fries were also over cooked- or just old!! And tasted like bad sonic fries!!!
Very disappointed with my experience tonight.

Food was a little overcooked, but still very tasty. Foot traffic was high around the table, and tables were close enough that it made it challenging to have conversation with someone sitting directly across the table. The salad bar was great, and I would recommend that to others if they were considering this dining experience. No TV distractions which was also nice, and honestly expected, for the type of experience one pays for at this steakhouse.

Overall, we appreciated our meal and the time together. Thank you.

I love that this restaurant has a little old school ambiance. Personal service and no loud music blaring. You can go and just enjoy conversation, even if they have the musician present playing piano. The best thing is they can work with all my food allergies and take it very seriously. Thank you for another great dining experience.

I eat at Riverfront several times a year and I it is the favorite place to eat for my account managers when I bring them in from out of state for quarterly meetings. The steaks are great, the salad bar is phenomenal and speaks for itself, and the service is always good. Also, the noise level is always low enough to carry on a conversation without having to raise your voice.

My first time ever going. The server was rude and belittling! The rolls that came with the meal were bland. They were cold, as was the butter so you definitely couldn’t spread the butter on the roll. I love the fried rice from next door so I purchased that as an appetizer. It was NOTHING like the fried rice I usually get! It too was bland and disappointing. However, the saving grace was the steak. I had the filet and it was seasoned very well. It was tender and juicy! I will go back but would definitely request a different server!

Service was spectacular and was the best part of the meal. Steak was comparable to Applebees but triple the price, baked potato reminded me of the school lunches that the LRSD used to serve, and they charged us a $7.00 fee to split everything though the menu items were advertised as enough for 2. We lived in NYC for several years and were excited to have a steakhouse that was comparable to Peter Luger's in Brooklyn...the journalist that wrote that article was sadly mistaken. The only thing that was comparable was the price. Your money is better spent elsewhere.

We need to remember to bring a jacket or a sweater as the air conditioning was turned up pretty high. Other than that it was perfect. The drinks were poured correctly. The meat was cooked perfectly. The slice of cheesecake for our anniversary was wonderful. Chip, our waiter, was his usual congenial self. We will see you again.

The best steaks in Arkansas period!

Cooked exactly to your specifications. The carrots that come with the entree are fantastic and the salad bar is the biggest and freshest around.

The snow bear after dinner cocktail is cool and refreshing as well, and it’s huge!

Overall a good steakhouse and tasty food. Too expensive for what you get. My steak came over cooked ( asked for medium and got well). I took a bite and it was still good so I decided to keep it. Probably should have sent it back but I didn't want to hold up my table on eating and waiting for me. Wait staff were attentive and prompt. I would try them again with a coupon.

The steak was not of very good quality "tough and lacking taste". I would rate the food at or below Outback Steakhouse. The service was good but the food was less than what the pricing warrants. For the same pricing you can do much better.

First a disclaimer, I’m not a steak connoisseur but I do hail from the land of Omaha—which prides itself on it’s old-school steakhouses.

I had the sirloin and the flavor was excellent. My husband had the prime rib and I thought it was overly fatty. He has had prime rib at other restaurants before and those instances had less “surgical de-fatting” than this piece. So there is that.

Next, I felt that although the other food was good, it wasn’t excellent and it also wasn’t presented well. We both had the soup of the day (which was very good), but my plate arrived with drips all over it the edge of the bowl from the ladle, sitting on a paper doily and accompanied by two packages of basic saltines. We ordered onion rings and the ketchup arrived in a small soup cup with a soup spoon.....really? For $100 meal?

My husband had the snow bear (drink) and it was excellent. I had a cocktail which quickly reminded me why I normally order beer (my own fault, not theirs).

Bread is amazing.

Overall....6/10. It somehow made the top steakhouse in the US rating which is why we went....but I don’t feel the need to go back.
