Have been living in the area for over 15 years, and finally discovered this place. The menu is an eclectic mix of classic staples and creative specialties. I had an excellent Cobb salad puked high with chicken, bacon , egg and cheeses with a delicious Thai vinaigrette. My wife had a perfectly prepared calzone. We'll have to come back to... More

We ordered delivery to our hotel and were generally disappointed. Can't say much more although I certainly expected better. Pizza sauce left a lot to be desired. Pizza was dry. Generally just a fair experience.

My husband, daughter and I chose to spend our last night of vacation dining at a little place near downtown Ft. Lauderdale called the New River Grill and Pizza. After a week of eating at some pretty great places in the area we were looking forward to trying River Grill and Pizza, not only because it came recommended, but because... More

My wife and I have a hard time finding places open late night. Even though this restaurant is open for lunch and dinner they stay open late night. This is amazing to find a place that isn't a diner or a Denny's with a full menu that is actually really really good. Their pizza is amazing and so are the... More

Being from Chicago eating NY style pizza does not sit well with me. It was recommended by the hotel and it was better than expected. Delivery was OK and you need to go to the lobby to get the food.

Our family has been enjoying the food at New River Grill & Pizza for more than a decade. We order pizza delivered at least once a week, and take family and out of town guests there for a relaxed lunch or dinner frequently. High quality ingredients and care in preparation make this a "solid" player in the restaurant rotation for... More

This place is very unassuming. I don't know if that's bad, but had my friend not known about it and known where it was located, if I had been driving, I would have driven right by it. The title of my review indicates that it's hidden. It's really not. It's on the corner of U.S. 1 and a side street... More

Eat in or take out. Well worth it. Big board of beers, some wine. Ecletic mix of Italian-ish and hipster food. Delivers until 4 AM!

After twelve years of establishing New River Pizza as the best place in Broward for a true New York-style pie, accomplished proprietor Randy Wilcox wasn't satisfied to stand pat: He has expanded the concept, changed the name to New River Grill & Pizza, and transformed the restaurant into an exciting new dining destination. With the reasonable prices, comfy attractive decor, friendly service and-- most importantly-- tasty dishes, New River Grill & Pizza is the type of place where you can easily become a regular.
