My wife and I have visited RB several times throughout the years and find the food has character. Chef Darren does a good job of upscaling southern faves and varying the menu with both Tex-Mex and Asian flare. It's a beautiful facility, to boot, with an open kitchen most easily viewable from being seated on the second floor. It's the... More

We were just walking around looking for somewhere to eat. On the outside it looked like an average place but when we went in it was so nice! I loved the modernized interior decorating, the staff was very professional and the food was Amazing! Hands down the best Ribeye I have ever eaten! We will definitely be back!

Horrible service. It took an hour to get our food while my drink was empty the entire time. When we finally got our food my hamburger was loaded with grease and had soaked the burnt bun. I will never recommend this terrible place to anyone. I posted a review on their Facebook page and after five days still haven't received... More

Start with the yam chips and smoky ranch dip. Lunch menu features sushi, salads, sandwiches and seafood. The Parmesan crusted grouper is served over winter squash risotto. Definitely save room for dessert. Chocolate chess pie with Woodford bourbon ice cream.

I have lived in Conway off and on since 2003. I cannot remember ever getting a bad meal at this place. In fact, it's the best restaurant in Conway. The menu is creative and well prepared. The presentation and service matches it. It has a decent wine list and a full bar. This is not only a great place for... More
