River Grille Restaurant & Café

River Grille’s menu is divided into a few equally delicious sections: pizza, subs, salads, and seafood. One of the restaurant’s main strengths, besides the excellent service, is the meat. Fresh chicken is roasted and marinated daily, the steak tips are fantastic, and the 100 percent Angus burgers are available in 4oz and 6oz portions. The restaurant is very family friendly, and has remained largely unchanged in its 20+ years of serving the freshest food in Hyde Park.

Master McGrath’s

One of the many things that make Master McGrath’s stand out is its attention to the quality of the service. Every member of the staff is dedicated to making sure customers have a great experience. Additionally, the bartenders are top-of-the-line and incredibly knowledgeable about their craft. Due to the small number of tables in the restaurant, many customers sit at the bar in order to enjoy their meal and make new eat and socialize.

Briar Rose

As a new restaurant, Briar Rose has achieved a lot in a short amount of time. Renowned for its excellent pub-fare and popular live music events, it’s the perfect destination for a night out with friends. Although it is relatively large, it manages to capture that small-town vibe with ease: the staff are attentive without being overwhelmingly so, and the restaurant truly feels like a home away from home where everyone knows your name.
