We dined at Riverfront Steakhouse a few months ago and our service was not good. Thought we would give it another try since pre-Covid this was one of our favorite steak restaurants. Again the service was bad, steak was all fat and gristle and our server was not able to perform his job well. At times the server was rude and talked to us as if he was doing us a favor by serving us. Afraid there won't be any future visits to this restaurant.

We had the worst service I ever experienced here on Dec 24th. My daughter wanted to go for her birthday on Christmas eve. We were hoping for a nice holiday family dinner. This place is usually very reliable with great service and good value. However, that night there was an issue/mistake with every course, including drinks. The waiter had to confirm our order with us 4 separate times. A table that arrived 30 min after us was 20 min ahead in service. When at 1.5 hrs my mother hadn't even received her steak yet and we were missing several sides, I complained. The manager immediately tried to make it right and I was grateful. However, it ruined my daughters birthday. We didn't even remain it the restaurant to cut her cake.

Lesson learned, always ask for an experienced waiter unless you have infinite patience. Other tables seemed to fare very well, we were just unlucky.

Great steak! We had Delmonico ribeye and filet. Perfectly seasoned and cooked. Our waiter Shawn was very attentive and stopped by enough to make sure we were taken care of but never intruded. Only negative is the salad bar is still a casualty of Covid. That was an amazing salad bar! But the house salad that came with the steak was huge and tasty.

I was celebrating my 44th birthday and he never been to the riverfront steakhouse. I had heard great reviews of how good for food was. The food was good however the atmosphere was not great. I felt like I was walking into a 1970’s old hotel. There was dust on all the ceiling vents in the bathroom and the restaurant was dated and dark.

Steakhouse is located inside the Wyndham Hotel on the Arkansas River, Waiters were very pleasant and very accomodating - food was prepared very nicely - great salad , Filet, and sides. My wife commented that this was one of the best steaks she had ever eaten.

My wife and I ate there before a concert. The location was very convenient. She had a sirloin steak, and I had a pork chop. Both were very good, well seasoned.

We had reservations at 7:00pm, we did not receive our salads until 8:30pm and we did not receive our entrees until we went and asked for a manager and finally received it at 9:15. Those of in our party that requested our steaks to be medium to medium well and they all came well done. We were so hungry at that point we just ate it. One in our party ordered salmon and the entire meal was not even prepared. My husband ordered fried rice with no chicken and it was full of chicken so after sitting there for almost 3 hours he left with only having a salad and mash potatoes for dinner which meant he left still not full. Our party of 8 were just highly unsatisfied. We even had a manager walk by and ask how we were and we stated we have had better service than we were getting tonight and they just walked off. Our waitress Renee was excellent. Our issues were definitely not with her it was with the kitchen. We know she has no control over how fast the food is prepared. We had a couple seated after us that had their entire meal and were gone before we even got our salads and appetizers. This level of service was just so overwhelming. We definitely will not be going there again.

We made a 6:45PM reservation 10-22-2021. When we arrived there was an intense conversation among staff behind the counter. We weren’t immediately acknowledged, definitely felt we might be keeping them from something, definitely without a smile. We were told, with no eye contact, we are “playing catch-up and it would be a few minutes before our table would be ready.” We met friends from out of town and were embarrassed that we were treated so poorly. I looked around and saw a table with 10 people, but possibly 2-4 other people in the entire restaurant. Service was distracted, kept disappearing for long periods of time. Orders we’re filled and finished for those who arrived after us and by the time we finished our meal.
Bathrooms were atrocious, smelly, the faucet I tried to use was lose, unattached from the counter.

We read reviews about the restaurant being the rated highly. We were greeted with enthusiasm by the host but once we sat it was like someone dropped anchor. There were only 21 people in the restaurant and it took longer than expected to get ordered and food on the table, then our waiter let is sit till everyone in the restaurant was gone to bring our check, then he was gone over 15 minutes before delivering our credit cards and receipts. The food was OK. Certainly not the best steak I have had. Not for $70 a seat.

I’ve had better steaks at home. Everything and I do mean everything tasted the same and not a good same. It was like all the food had the same seasoning and the seasoning was a fish. I’m actually embarrassed because I had heard on a radio ad that this was a great steakhouse and took my wife to eat here. We drove 2 1/2 hours to this place. She looked at me after her first bite and said “ That radio guy lied to you!” My bill was $147 and I’ve had a lot better food from McDonald’s

I wish the salad bar was back. There wasn't enough wait staff, but I don't blame the restaurant for that. The steaks are amazing.
