About Us

The Riverstone Grill is CLOSED

We at the Riverstone Grill would like to thank everyone for their support and enthusiasm over the last 7 years. We have had many accomplishments, awards and made so many great friends. Our work family has grown and with that, so has the Bulera family. That being said, restaurant life doesn’t provide a lot of time for family. These last few weeks have been difficult with the health issues of friends, staffing and commitments to family. That is why at this time we have decided to CLOSE the restaurant and refocus on our family and health. We make this decision with a heavy heart, but at this time it is the right decision for us as we holistically evaluate our lives. Thank you to everyone who supported us.

The Process

The Riverstone Grill is a neighborhood tavern where customers place their order at the bar as we do not offer table service.  A hostess is not available at all times therefore to get a table or have your name entered on the list, talk to our bartenders.  Seating is first come first serve, we DO NOT take reservations unless it is for a table of six (6) or more as outlined below; see the Reservations section.  Once you choose your food and/or drink from our menu place your order at the bar.  Our bar staff will give you a table number for the food to be delivered wherever you are sitting.  While we don’t offer full table service, we do serve a diverse drink selection as well as delicious burgers, sandwiches, shared plates and finger foods.
