Made a change after a week to skip the rice and beans and have a really well cooked burger. As others have said, a US style sports bar, but made a change for lunch one day. Nice place, friendly helpful staff, and great A/C. Definitely worth a visit, and nice to get draft beer rather than bottles for a change

It's a sports bar / burger joint that is over-priced. It's got A/C indoors and an outside area by the river. Personally, when I visit other countries, I like to experience culture and this place has none.

Air Conditioned and clean! Excellent burgers and onion rings. Loved the Naked Iguana drink, pineapple juice, blue curaco and rum :) Very potent!

Dependable food and service. The staff was helpful. The food was good and varied without a huge markup.

Very comfortable and the service is good although sometimes a little slow as the place is popular and gets very busy. The pork chops are delicious and you get two large ones. You have to order vegetables and anything accompanying meat separately and the portions are very generous. We tend to share the accompanying foods between two people. The onions... More

A place where one can enjoy delicious meal and good service. A/C inside and a river view outside on the veranda. Good place for sport lovers. Prices a bit high for regular visits.

Spend several days on business in Belize. Found the Riverside Tavern from a friends recommendation. Food and atmosphere was the best. Dustin, the owner, was a fine host and showed real interest in his clientele. Can't wait to return for one of the worlds best burgers. REALLY, I AM NOT KIDDING!! This place needs to be on your burger bucket... More

Nobody says Belize City is a nice place, but the perspecitve of eating at Riverside Tavern makes it bearable. One of the few places in the country to enjoy draught beer (well yes, the brewery owns the place). Their burgers are a highlight, and so far, I have not tasted anything like it in Belize and beyond. They prepare the... More

Our favorite place to eat when we visit Belize City! The food is always great; I definitely recommend any steak and any hamburger! Secure parking, air-conditioning or al fresco dining, free wi-fi, attentive waiters. It's also a favorite for many other locals so lunch can be crowded. Plan to go a little before or after the lunch hour. While you're... More

Super service, delicious food, it was very noisy, filled with locals on a Friday evening, everyone was having fun and there were no hassles.When we returned two weeks later, the ambiance was quieter, food still great. Big portions, we found sharing a dish was the perfect amount of food.
