Very pretty, moderately priced winery restaurant

Small and very pretty restaurant. Comfortable seating and nice and quiet - very soothing atmosphere. They have a lovely patio overlooking vineyards, but it was just a bit too breezy for us, although they did have heaters. Their Caesar salad was delicious with some nice touches like a... read more

The 6 of us ordered most of the menu and everything was perfect. Service was top notch and the food was all superb. I highly recommend the house Vidal while wine, which was a highlight for the table. I will watch for it to buy for home. The grounds are stunning. I definitely recommend being outside on the back veranda.... More

We offered Salmon and an Angus burger. The burger was maybe the best I ever had. My wife equally enjoyed the salmon on a plank. You go here for the ambiance and great food comes along. We had a nice, kind of romantic, lunch for the two of us. You could not order a better experience, share it with the... More

We have been dining here for the past four years because of our consistently satisfactory dining experiences at Riverbend Inn. Our anticipation was enhanced by the substantial array of impressive CAA Four Diamond Awards at the dining room entrance. However, this year the restaurant appears to have come off its previously well-established culinary and service rails. The couple at an... More

Had dinner at Riverbend as part of a two night stay. Fabulous meal with outstanding friendly, professional service. I started with delicious crab cakes as an appetizer. They were substantial enough to have as a main course with salad or share with your partner. I followed with the beef tenderloin that was cooked perfectly for me as medium rare. It... More

We booked a getaway through Travelzoo for two days at the Riverbend and was not disappointed. The deal included a $50 dining coupon and two days of free à la carte breakfast in the beautiful restaurant (up to $30 for both days). For supper, we sat at the windows overlooking the vineyards. The bread and oil dips were very good.... More

A lovely dining experience in a beautiful historic setting. From the moment you enter this well appointed Inn, you are instantly reminded of old world charm and service. The staff are so well trained, the wine list is excellent, and the food is delicious.It is apparent from the very first course, that the chefs pay close attention to detail not... More

We had breakfast twice, a snack & supper. Service was great. Food was well presented, and tasty. The view of the vineyard was very nice. My husband did not enjoy the Jazz music they were playinh

Had dinner through a winery tour so the menu was preset with 3 main course options; chicken, beef, or seafood. Food was well prepared and tasty, with plenty of time to enjoy socializing between courses. Server was great.
