    Bruschetta was really good starter. I had the short ribs, excellent and plenty to share or take home for a second meal. It was a bit slow getting our food, but they were pretty busy due to a play in the neighborhood later.

    Wild River Grill never disappoints. But do check if there is a play at the theater. If there is, seating can be tough and there is never room for a walk in, reservations only. Our server, Chris, had a difficult table next us. He tried to appease them. Never once did he allow there negativity get to him, maintaining his polite professionalism.

    They had a special menu for the broadway show. Appetizer and soup/salad was good, entrees were very over cooked and kitchen was extremely slow sending out entrees, desserts were just okay. The amount of food for the price was great but overall experience was disappointing.

    We went on a Tuesday before a show at the Pioneer theater. I had reservations at 5:30. We were seated promptly our wine menu was missing a page so we weren't initially ready to order drinks when first asked. It then took some time for our drinks to arrive. We ordered dinner from the special show menu. The shrimp & grits was quite good and the salad was delicious. We then waited 30 minutes for our entrees to arrive. My fish was undercooked in the middle and the flavor was basic. We had to request our dessert because by this time it was almost 7:00. The dessert was poor. The peaches were served cool in an unpalatable glaze with ice cream and a light dusting of an uncooked crumble. We barely touched it and had to rush the end of the meal to get to our show. We were seated inside close to a very loud and boisterous group of 6 which at times made conversation difficult. Our waitress was very friendly but perhaps over worked that evening. We will be back because we have had much better experiences here in the past.

    We had a lovely Father's Day dinner here, the first since my own father passed. This location was special to him, and the service was wonderful despite my tendency to get emotional during dinner. The food here is always fantastic and the drinks are well-crafted & delicious. It was a great spot to toast my father's memory.

    Wild River is one of our go-to spots for celebrations. This last time there was nothing to complain about. The service was prompt, the food was delicious, and the outdoor setting, even though it was a little breezy (obviously no fault of Wild River) was nice.

    Waiter nice but overwhelmed. Missed drink refills, utensils and ice cream on dessert was melted as it took a long time time to arrive. We were ready to cancel it by the time it came, but we didn’t see our way so we couldn’t do that.
