I went here, twice, with customers on a business trip. It was their idea, and they seemed to like the place so after the first disappointing visit I tried them again. Same SLOW service and for the price, I feel it's just average fare. Nothing special about this place at all. I would honestly not go here again if I... More

Very local. I sat at the bar for a late lunch. The people were all locals. The Cuban Sandwich- although non-traditional - was excellent. They also have a couple of excellent local beers on tap.

Been coming here since moving to Enon/Eastern Chester almost 15 years ago. I've never received a bad meal here or bad service. This is a great family business that feels like a episode from "Cheers", but with great food. The wait staff is always the right mix of helpful but not too attentive. The menu has a great assortment of... More

My friend and I were returning home from a business trip when we decided to stop for dinner at the River’s Bend Bar and Grill. The server greeted us as we entered and seated us immediately. It was early evening on a Saturday so there weren’t many people in the dining area but the music in the adjacent bar indicated... More

Had my retirement party here in 2013, and yes, out of about 40 people I was the LAST one served! My golf group went here recently for our end of the year banquet, and I was embarrassed. The service was so slow throughout, and the ribeye and bourbon street steaks we men received at our table were very thin, luke... More

We meet family there and really enjoyed the atmosphere. The food was very good, we opted for wraps, burgers and sandwiches. The variety that we had was all very good. We ordered appetizers and was well pleased. The waitress was very attentive and never let our drinks go empty.

Went here recently for lunch on recommendation of employees at local business. Food was decent and service was good. Decor was fairly bland.

I'll admit it. Almost every time I went to Rivers Bend I had their BLT on wheat. I was addicted. I also really liked their green beans. They were flavorful and cooked just right. Price was right too. Miss my BLTs now that I've moved.

Highly recommend the home made potato chips. They are delicious. My favorite is the Reuben sandwich.
