As Riverhorse On Main’s Executive Chef since 2004, Celebrity Chef Seth Adams and business partner, Dave Spence, took advantage of an opportunity to purchase the popular Main Street eatery in 2011. Together, the two transformed the atmosphere into the trendy, urban setting it is today, focusing on creating memorable dining experiences. Their successful business partnership and friendship has maintained Riverhorse On Main’s long-standing reputation as one of the country’s premier dining establishments.


Executive Chef
Seth Adams

Chef Adams began his culinary career as a teenager, working in catering. Those summer and weekend catering jobs led Adams, a Pittsburgh native, to culinary school and it was skiing that cemented him to Utah. At Riverhorse, Adams keeps his guests happy by maintaining consistency in offering long-standing, crowd-pleasing favorites, but also expressing his sense of creativity and experimenting with flavors and ingredients that reflect the season and his own inspiration. Adams’ passion for creation and proven recipes have garnered him some of the highest accolades in the industry.


Business Partner
Dave Spence

Corporate Executive Dave Spence, has a proven track record and love for growing businesses. A Missouri native, Spence purchased Alpha Packaging at the age of 26, and, under his ownership, expanded the company from 15 to 800 employees. Spence resigned as president of Alpha Packaging in 2011 to run for Missouri governor on the Republican ticket. The democratic incumbent retained the position and Spence returned to the corporate world as CEO for Legacy Pharmaceutical Packaging, a company with more than 250 employees.


What People Are SayinG

Sets the bar quite high

The food prepared in Riverhorse is made with passion and cooked with love. We had a very large party and the food was served at the right time and at the right temperature and the place was completely full. I was surprised with the quality of ingredients used and the bold flavors. A must visit.

Anniversary Celebration

This is and has been my go-to celebration dinner spot! I almost always order their macadamia crusted halibut as it is a staple on their menu, so many others besides me love it so much! They often have relaxing live music, service is excellent, and I can honestly say that when ever we bring guests, everyone is delighted with their meals, regardless of what they chose from the menu. Always look forward to returning!

Dinner Event

Amazing restaurant with Service and a Menu that are one of a kind. Make sure you get a reservation as it is always busy. You will be pleased.
