Have never had bad service and food is good. River City Beefstro is attached to hotel, so very convenient.

“Okay if you don't want to leave the hotel grounds”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 October 2011

The restaurant offers limited (and artery clogging) choices and is a bit overpriced. My husband had a steak and I had the bruschetta salad. It was just average...but we were tired and this fit the bill. There are many restaurants down the highway that I would try over this one.

“Didn't follow through on promises”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 September 2011

Went to the beefstro after my wedding for an after party. We had been told they would stay open until 1:30 for us. They closed at 1 instead. My friend lost her purse at the bar and staff was very rude when asked if they had seen it and were very unhelpful. Nice place though other than that

“Great Service, Inconsistent Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2011

I ate at this restaurant two nights in a row and ordered their room service one morning. The service was fantastic. The wait staff were attentive, courteous, and kept my water glass filled. The Monterrey Chicken Sandwich, green salad, and breakfast (eggs, sausage, toast, and potatoes) were all quite delicious. However, the Chicken Parmesan was not so good (an overly breaded chicken patty on top of dry noodles--skimpy with the sauce). I thought that the sandwich and breakfast were priced well but they charged way too much for poor quality Chicken Parmesan. They did serve a delicious California Merlot at a very reasonable price.

This hotel is convenient if you are staying at one of the attached hotels and you do not feel like driving into town.
