I've eaten at this restaurant a few times when visiting my son at Radford U. The food is delicious--I got the salmon this last visit--and if you get a table near the balcony you (sometimes) can watch the sun going down. It's up on the river bluffs so there's a nice view. Also, since they brew their own beer, if... More

A great brewery and great food. Such a beautiful resturant and a great view of the river. The unexpected for the NRV, but so happy to have such a nice place in the neighborhood.

Food is decent but not great. Prices are ridiculous. Service is slow but it's a nice looking place in a not so busy area.

Best reason to go is the view and the handsome building - which make it worth the trip. The beautiful setting and high priced fair, along with home-brewed beer, tend to set high expectations. However the food service and food are mediocre for the price. (Kitchen is slowww; food is fairly bland; steak temperature is completely random). The beer is... More

Beautiful building. The fireplace is amazing. Unfortunately I can no speak for the beers but I hear they are good. Unfortunately it is very hard to get a really good meal here. From the moment we walked in and went to the bar we had a bad experience. The bartenders attitude was horrible. He literally rolled his eyes when someone... More

I love trying various microbrewery craft beers and the River Company didn't disappoint. I had the Peachicot Blonde ale which I enjoyed but others at the table thought was a bit "perfumy". My husband had the Farmhouse Hefeweizen which was also good. Often I will order a flight of beers so I can sample more than one. Unfortunately, The River... More

We found this restaurant last year and try to get back there at least once a year. Atmosphere is great overlooks the river, wait staff is always pleasant and offers great suggestions. Large open area, however you do not hear the conversations of the diners next to you. Love the fireplace and we always seem to get right beside the... More

Stopped here with a group of 14. They did their best to accomodate us. The beer was very good and the reuben that I had was very good. Service was fine. Others at the table all had positive things to say about the place. I read the other reviews, but we had good experience. TWe would go again.

Not a smooth running operation at all. Go for the view off the back deck or the beer, but don't have high expectations beyond those. I've been going there since it opened, but I won't be in a rush to go back. Mediocrity seems to be acceptable here despite the non-mediocre pricing.

Very limited menu at lunch time. The items that were there, were way overpriced! We each got a 14oz Rib Eye that was $29 each. They had a "upgraded 14 oz. that was $38. It was very tender and tasted fine, but not that much better than anywhere else that has Rib Eyes. Onion rings were OK, but greasy. French... More
