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.

Very nice! Excellent service! We were looking for a river view and it is on the river, but there was no river view. The six of us enjoyed it thoroughly without a river view.

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.

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.

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!
