The food here is pretty good for sure and the service is outstanding...you can play some pool, have a cigar after dinner and then stay and listen to some great local "live" music.

My wife and I went to cool river after a business meeting, and the atmosphere was awesome, although we only had drinks and a appetizer,the service was great, and the staff was as well. A must go.

Cool River is a popular spot in Las Colinas. It has a separate cigar bar, but the smell is not detectable in the restaurant. There is a fairly extensive wine list. We ordered an appetizer, but the waiter forgot to turn it in. We were...More
