Rivertown Bistro – Conway, SC

Rivertown Bistro is in the heart of the historic downtown of Conway, South Carolina. Their location was a little chore to park – however, when we arrived – the establishment was impeccably clean, open and had a nice relaxed atmosphere.

They offer a seasonal menu of the best of what the local area has to offer. Their roots are in a French, American Southern Soul food. We dined on the upstairs deck that had a great view of the historic downtown.

I am a big fan of open kitchen concepts. I like to hear the bustle of a kitchen, hear the staff talk with each other – in my mind it enhances the experience of going out to dinner. For this visit – it was lunch with some colleagues.

Rivertown has a great appetizer selections. The popular option from our group and the wait staff were the yam chips with a smoked tomato ranch. $9

Parmesan encrusted snapper, spinach and tomato risotto, basil butter and an oven roasted tomato/balsamic gastric. $15 (this was a lunch portion – normally it’s on the dinner menu for $25)

Lunch portions are fairly hearty as you can see. while I was only able to visit this establishment once on my visit here are some recommendations from the staff:
