Poor service, mediocre food, nice atmosphere, but still one of the only restaurants in downtown Conway open evenings

Service is good but the food is even better. Every time we go, the food is consistent, cooked to perfection and seasonal. The decor is trendy, without trying too hard, and is very good for couples, families, and business lunches. It's ecelectic menu offers everyone something they will enjoy.

.. While visiting family for Thanksgiving we were brought here and glad we were. Every course was impeccable. I particularly enjoyed the house made 'beef' bacon appetizer. Thanks.

The atmosphere is cozy and modern. One of the best places for soups. The food is good but could use more of a variety.

Make sure you're at least slightly dressed up when you go to Rivertown, because the atmosphere speaks to the quality of the food. My friend and I decided to go because we say that it was considered the best restaurant in downtown Conway and in Horry County. We felt very posh dining there, and it lived up to it's reputation....

Nothing special about this place, actually it's run down and dirty. Service is par for the area. Been twice and mostly likely won't go back, bathrooms are filthy and smells, whole place needs a face-lift. This is the redneck version of fine dining.

I've been here a few times now and have been consistently impressed with the food. Not only is it delicious, but it is also fresh and creative. Despite their great success in the savory category, I tried dessert here recently for the first time. I was thrilled to see creme brûlée, my absolute favorite, but I must admit I was... More

Great place for a special meal. They put a special twist on a lot of Southern dishes. Have eaten there for lunch and dinner and have never been disappointed.

Had lunch with my wife, son and daughter-in-law. The restaurant is very modern which was a surprise in such an old town. I had the Italian beef and cheese sandwich which was delicious. The side was sweet potato chips which were good but overly salted. My wife had the chicken cheese melt which was good but instead of using portion... More
