very busy place Good service , food was excellent but a little overpriced. Parking can be difficult when the place is jammed Not a bad place to go for a change of pace Very friendly staff , varied menu with plenty of choice. In norland so it is a good spot to stop on the way to the cottage.

We love to stop in here for Friday night dinner on our way to the cottage. Love it when Mac n cheese makes it back on the menu. It's nice to see the menu change up season to season, although, did I say I loved the mac n cheese? The fireplace is warm in the winter time. Service is fantastic... More

I went there with a group of friends and we had made reservations whihc was good. This place is always busy and reservations are recommended. The location is good but parking can be tight in the lot beside the inn. The table wobbled but we fixed it. No specials but they change their menu every few months we were told.... More

Great place to aim for at lunch time if you're out on the sled. About a 3 hour ride from Haliburton, and less than that if coming from Orillia. My friend had the fish and chips-excellent- and I had the chili special with garlic bread, again-excellent.

We come here every chance we get. Terrific food. Extremely good versions of classics like pulled pork. Unfortunately, the pulled pork was removed from the menu this time. We left commentary to please reintroduce it (our fave). Above average cocktails too. Great Caesar. We can attest to the quality of the burgesr, crispy beef,riverside sizzler, fish and chips.

We used to go to the Riverside all the time. Great food and lots of selection. Just went there and now they are closed for breakfast (WHAT!?) the menu has nothing good on it anymore either. They change it monthly which is annoying. Not worth the drive anymore.

Having driven by this restaurant many, many times on our way to the cottage and noticing just how busy this restaurant is since being taken over almost (2 years ago I think) we decided to try it once, then twice and now three times and we understand why all the Riverside Inn is busy for either breakfast, lunch and/or especially...

Cannot say enough good things about the food here. One of the best restaurants I have ever eaten in. First time here our food group did not have one bad thing to say about the food. Went back a second time and the food was as delicious as the first time. Do not eat all day because the portions are... More

This place is great! The food is awesome! A wonderful variety.....and best of all, very reasonably priced to keep you going back! The portions are generous, but not overbearing! The service was great! It is my new favorite restaurant!!! It's a welcome addition to the area restaurants, and the other local restaurants should be worried. I have never driven by... More
