This is one of my favorite places to eat at when in Glenwood Springs. The food and service is fantastic. The gluten free options are wonderful and filling. Service is top notch. Lovely location by the river. Overall great place to eat, host an event, or just have a drink.

We were there around Halloween. The staff was in costume for a party later that evening. Our waiter, dressed like his roommate, was outstanding! Offered suggestions, attentive and was interactive with us at the ‘right’ moments. We had a great dinner and delicious DESSERT 👍

A pleasant find on a weekend trip and away from the crowds downtown.

First time visiting Glenwood Springs and wanted to experience the local cuisine. My wife and I made the reservation for 5:30pm and there were only a few patrons in the restaurant but, we were stuck by the wall and with my back to the restaurant. I don't know who else was coming but, I definitely felt like an outsider. I had the Marinated & Grilled Elk and Portobello Mushrooms which was okay as the Elk was very chewy and not well marinated. The vegetables were undercooked on my dish and on my wife's dish of Thai Vegetables. The service was pleasant but, very slow as we sat a lot in between dishes so I feel it the food sat for awhile as it was not that hot when we got it. Kind of difficult to find the restaurant location and just not sure I would come back.

Lovely dinner. Had to sit inside, too cold outside. If they had patio heatersit would have been wonderful. Great food, portions way too large though!

As always, Anita and the staff at Rivers took great care of us.
The Prime Rib was excellent, and the Halibut special that evening was awesome also.
We always try to go there when we are in town, and will definitely continue to do so.

One of the nicer places in town - white tablecloth, quiet ambiance, pricey-yet-worth-it menu.

Our server was super. She recommended wonderful options.
Setting was very scenic, being on the bank of a flowing river.
Finally, my wife and I were able to hear what each other was saying.
The food was very good as well.
