We stayed at the Riverside Inn as part of a visit to see the leaves in Michigan. The hostess was most gracious and made us feel very welcome. The room was spacious and the bed quite comfortable. The food in the restaurant was out of this world and we enjoyed our meal there immensely. It was a lovely stay and... More

Oh my goodness.... What a wonderfully delicious and superbly prepared dinner!! We had the stuffed calamari which was to die for!! Totally different than any calamari we had ever tasted!! And stuffed with chorizo sausage made in house.... A must try. I had the Stuffed Kabocha Squash that, I think, was the best dish I have had in years!! Fargo,... More

This wasn't our first time at the Riverside, nor will it be our last. The food and drinks have been good and still are. The dishes and their preparations tend to be traditional, but the use of locally sourced ingredients elevates them. The Inn's location next to the river is pleasant, away from the M22 summertime hubbub. I enjoy creative... More

Took friends here for their maiden dinner. Started with the Calamari and Scallops, which were delectable. All four dinners were incredible. I had the special Shrimp Pasta dish and left wanting more. We have been here several times, but it has a couple 2-3 years ago. Our server, Sebastian was on top of his game and provided excellent advice and... More

We had a very nice dinner here recently. Good food and friendly service. It's in a nice location- on the river and back off a side street, but still really close to Fishtown and the shops in Leland. I wish we could have sat outside- their deck is right on the river and it looked really nice (but it rained... More

We were seated at a lovely table outdoors overlooking the river. The gardens are beautiful & our waitress, Karen, was very attentive. My husband had the duck & I had the fresh white fish (caught that day by the local fishery). Both dishes were superb. To top off the night we shared the homemade apple pie with vanilla bean ice...

The Riverside is a nice inn in a great location in Leland, steps away from the Bluebird and Fishtown. Our room was very "cozy" (read small), but adequate. The staff are all very welcoming and helpful. The back deck and benches on the dock are great for enjoying a drink in the evening. The continental breakfast is nothing to rave... More

Wonderful service, divine food, great wine selections each time with good advice from staff. Always great, always attentive staff and great selection and creative ideas coming from the... More

Beautiful location and darling inside with very good food but it shouldn't take 1.5 hours to serve us our entree. We waited 45 minutes between our salad and our entree with multiple apologies from our server. The wait actually ruined our 35th anniversary as it was a humid night and there isn't air conditioning! I made this reservation 4 weeks... More

We stayed three nights last week in the Island Suite. It has a very comfortable bed with a nice sitting area. The hotel is an old building with 4 rooms and a restaurant. It sits on the river and has a bench/sitting area on its dock. My wife and I read books there several times during our stay. Very pleasant... More
