Best Cheeseburger

Best Cheeseburger ever! My only complaint is the risqué pictures, since the restaurant promotes itself as a family outing.

Oh my gosh! The BEST Meal! Maybe b/c it seemed the most American or because the service was prompt...or the setting lovely (we ate outside by the river) but it was delicious! Really good! I would for sure recommend this to anyone...and if I get the chance to go back, I will!

The Riverside Tavern is located in central Belize City so really not hard to find. If your looking for a nice, clean and cozy place to hangout and enjoy happy hour this is the place.

This is by no means a place to get authentic Belizean fare but we've been eating rice and beans for too long! The burgers were really tasty and came with a side of fries for around $20 BZ each. After a lot of walking around in the heat, the air con was a bonus. I can strongly recommend the Blue... More

The food is good, as is the service. I find the burgers pretty expensive, but delicious, so you get what you pay for. Unfortunately, the chips (French fries) served with the meal are the frozen, preformed kind, so order baked potato or mashed potato if you want real potatoes. The deck is overlooking the river and the best spot to... More

We enjoyed really great burgers, onion rings and fries. All were cooked just right and the prices were reasonable. The environment was very loud and there weren't many people in the room, yet we had to almost yell at each other to be heard. The staff kept turning the TV on obnoxiously loud, changing channels. It is a"tavern", so i... More

A group of us spending the last night of our trip in Belize City came here to enjoy a farewell seafood dinner & sit out on the patio. We had a great time together and the food that we were able to get was really good. However, they were out of almost all seafood (no sign outside stating this or... More
