It's easy to say nice things about the River rock Grill in Maynard Massachusetts because the food is wonderful. Our server, Ashley, made our evening especially enjoyable. My wife and I both ordered the Cajun Salmon with double vegetables and a cup of French onion soup to share. I've had the filet on a previous visit, it was cooked exactly... More

Good local place to have a good meal. I have been here a number of times and recently haven't seen the live music. Bring it back...there are very few places in the area with live music!!!

River Rock has a very varied menu -- something for everyone -- and the food is of good quality and the service friendly in this casual atmosphere.

I went here with a small group. The zucchini chip appetizer was tasty but not necessarily worth the calories. My chicken piccata had a heavier sauce than the usual. It tasted okay, but I prefer the light, lemony classic. This is not an Italian restaurant, so maybe that explains the lack authenticity.

This is a lovely resturaunt, but, somewhat overpriced. It depends on the waitress you get. Deb is an amazing waitress and if you get her you are in great hands. Another waitress when asked to help explain a dish just told us to read the menu..... Food is so so and way overpciced, but, drinks were yummy.

River Rock is an unassuming restaurant in Maynard. But the food, service and ambiance is anything but unassuming. We went there last week with friends, who had never dined there, we all got four different entrees and each was superb. They are now fans of River Rock.

They have great menu and great drinks. Very good atmosphere and great service. Ideal for just some drinks or a family night out.

Went for lunch around 1:30 and there was 1 young guy at the bar and a barmaid behind the bar. First signal that I should have paid attention to. No waitress, pretty much nobody. The barmaid was very nice , didn't introduce herself , so don't know her name. Hubby ordered a Harpoon IPA (his favorite) and she asked if... More

Can you say SLOW? It's 6:45 on a Tuesday. This place is empty. We ordered a chicken sandwich and chicken parm. Are they out back raising the chickens from birth? Not coming back.

Excellent food. (Truly the mussels for an app and the filet for dinner). Also an amazing bar staff with personable service that tops every other establishment in town. Every meal here has been impeccable and there are no signed of slippage in quality. By far my favorite local stop. That said, as with everything, will keep an eye on it... More
