Off to a good start...

Month one is officially done and in the books. The River grill is in full swing and has had great success!! We thank all of our patrons, new and old for a spectacular opening to our 2018 season. We've payed careful attention to our social media pages and thank everyone for taking the time to leave comments, reviews and even suggestions. We value the opinion of our guests and community and use your feedback as a guide for the future. We've recently added some new menu items, tweaked our recipes and ingredients to perfection, and increased our hours. We are now open 5 days a week outside. Wednesday thru Friday at 3pm, with happy hour from 3-6pm, and Saturday and Sunday both the bar and grill open at noon.

We've had some beautiful weather and warm evenings. The River nightlife has been fantastic and such a great time. Local bands and out of town talent have lit up the stage and created quite the party on the patio. We are so lucky to live in an area with so much talent. Its great to give community members a platform to showcase their talents.

 Great to see The River packed with fans of local talent. Head of Security, Rey, keeping the peace with a keen eye. Hats off to Rey and his team for ensuring a safe and harmonious time is had by all.

The reactions to the new grilled food menu have been so positive and we are grateful for the great reviews we've received. The difference in using fresh vegetables straight from the farm is incredible. We pride ourselves on having the freshest ingredients, and our grill team has nothing short of perfected the open flame cooking style.

Our gardens are in full bloom. Not only floral gardens but the culinary gardens as well. We grow all our own fresh herbs and use those herbs in our specialty cocktails and menu items. Fresh mint, basil, and rosemary are some cocktail favorites and the cilantro, lemon verbena, basil and sage add incredible fresh flavor to our chicken tacos, caprese crostini, and other items. 

All in all, June has been an incredibly gratifying month for us. Hard work pays off and the loyalty, patience, and support of our community has been the greatest reward so far. 

Stay tuned for more updates!! 

Cheers!

Team Stewie
