what a gem - finally tried it although a friend said 'don't bother' GLAD I did. Service was wonderful - was so nice about turning the heat down for me. It has a charming ambience (so nice after having going to a sterile brew pub a few nice before) They had SO many appetizers I wanted!! I ended ordering from... More

Truthfully, we intended eating at another local establishment but the wait there was almost 2 hours--which is just ridiculous. Somebody leaving there suggested the River Rock Grill to us and as it was just around the corner with no wait we took their advice. The atmosphere was casual and the staff was very pleasant. Our server was knowledgeable and able... More

We were just passing through Maynard on a Sunday afternoon and looking for a non-chain quick bite to eat for lunch before the dreaded blood sugar low set in. Took a quick glance at the menu and almost left because we thought the prices looked a little steep but thankfully the sandwiches on the last page drew us in. We... More

It's easy to say nice things about the River rock Grill in Maynard Massachusetts because the food is wonderful. Our server, Ashley, made our evening especially enjoyable. My wife and I both ordered the Cajun Salmon with double vegetables and a cup of French onion soup to share. I've had the filet on a previous visit, it was cooked exactly... More

Good local place to have a good meal. I have been here a number of times and recently haven't seen the live music. Bring it back...there are very few places in the area with live music!!!

River Rock has a very varied menu -- something for everyone -- and the food is of good quality and the service friendly in this casual atmosphere.

I went here with a small group. The zucchini chip appetizer was tasty but not necessarily worth the calories. My chicken piccata had a heavier sauce than the usual. It tasted okay, but I prefer the light, lemony classic. This is not an Italian restaurant, so maybe that explains the lack authenticity.

This is a lovely resturaunt, but, somewhat overpriced. It depends on the waitress you get. Deb is an amazing waitress and if you get her you are in great hands. Another waitress when asked to help explain a dish just told us to read the menu..... Food is so so and way overpciced, but, drinks were yummy.

River Rock is an unassuming restaurant in Maynard. But the food, service and ambiance is anything but unassuming. We went there last week with friends, who had never dined there, we all got four different entrees and each was superb. They are now fans of River Rock.
