Inspired by UGP...

Took most of the family for my wife's BDay (stepdaughter is in the MB marching band so she was at the football game).  I'll write this up like my typically course reports.

Food - Very good to outstanding as usual.  Star of the night was the garlic sirloin.  Runner up were the lamb chops.  I didn't get a chance to cover the full menu several times like I normally do.  It's hard to chow down when you're also entertaining a 10 month old :-).  I'm a sucker for the beef ribs and usually end my night with some.  You have to ask for them sometimes as they aren't as often brought around compared to most of the other cuts of meat.  Salad bar is excellent as always, although chilled shrimp was terrible.  Must have had a bad batch at the time.  

Service - Excellent as always.

Wait Time - Steady busy, but not packed like in the summer.  Maybe a little slower than expected on a Friday night.

Price - They increased the price a bit since that last time we went there.  It's now $38/person, up from $36.  Still a solid deal for what you are able to eat.  

For value, service, food quality, experience, etc., it is hard to beat.

Now, you're also a "gourmet critique"? 😉

Thanks for sharing!

I need to get there - the problem is that I have to eat $50 worth of food to make up for my wife who will eat about 10 bucks worth!

Golf is just an excuse to drink whiskey and smoke cigars

You could always have your wife opt for the salad bar.  I think it's $17 or $18 and still great.  It includes vegetables, pasta, potatoes, rice & beans, different vegetable salads, a chicken salad that's common to Brazil, some sushi, cured meats, cheeses, and all the bacon one could eat.  I could eat $20 worth of bacon 🙂

Ah, one other idea, I know in the past they had ladies nights on Thursdays in the winter for $25/person.  Not sure if that will be the case this year but something to keep an eye out for.

Now looking forward to getting to the new Rioz's in Nov. for me the highlight is the pineapple dusted with cinnamon after filling up on everything else.

I have to say - we went late two years ago.  Food very good.  Service was beyond fantastic.  Our Server helped play a prank on a friend of ours.  Was beyond funny, random people just cracking up laughing.  We actually had to assure her boss that she did not insult the guy in our group.  Some of our group would go every year, although we did not go last year.

Paid for it the next day - think I still had the meat sweats!  Rivers Edge got the best of me.

we love that place, every year our group all goes together. This year we tried the new one in north myrtle and i must say i prefer the one at broadway at the beach. the food was great but with a large group we were place in a side room and kinda felt like we were slightly forgotten about and had to ask for a lot of the dishes that never even made its way around. i believe the location is smaller or at least appeared that way. but still the food was great and we enjoyed our time
