Service was a bit slow. Food was ok. I was hoping their trout was local fresh but it wasn't. People were nice and friendly.

We were a group of 6 and they were able to sit us without a problem. Waitress was very prompt and helpful. Everything came out perfect and hot! No doubt we will be back

We had been exploring the area and were looking for a restaurant when we came upon Riverstone. We were warmly and promptly greeted. Looking around as we walked to our table, the place had a cozy/home feel to it. Our server Erin was very attentive to our needs and gave us the space to enjoy our meals. My wife had... More

Our trout dinner was not good. No flavor, very fishy taste. Plain boring baked potato and salad. The price was higher than other restaurants in the are for the same meal. Would not return. Carriage House was much better!

We stopped in for lunch today. This is just an average restaurant. A lot of the food is not made from scratch but from a can or frozen.

Stopped by when in the area. French fries were thick cut (usually not my favorite) but well seasoned and amazingly crisp--wonderful. Liver and onions were perfect--tender & moist. Ribeye steaks were good according to the guys. Waitstaff was attentive. Not a huge menu, but sufficient. I recommend this place.

Food was good but our waitress did not come back to check on us once we got our food. My husband took our tea glasses to get refilled.
