Having been proclaimed as one of the state of Arkansas’s “finest restaurants” upon opening, and receiving a variety of other distinguished awards since then. Today River Grille Steakhouse is still focused as intently as when it opened on providing only the finest in Old World Style service and the best quality foods for our customers.
The award-winning interior is elegant but understated. Dark wood paneling with Ansel Adams black and white pictures, provide a warm and relaxing setting to enjoy your meal.
