It's on the backside overlooking the falls downtown - a patio with 5 tables and a bar setup inside. I thought it was the Ale House. It wasn't, and it was disgusting. Cigarette butt on the chair. Broken glass (they poured the beer into another glass and were kind enough to "top it off" - no worries on the shards... More

My fiancé and I had stopped here on the way to Main. This place is amazing, decor is beautiful with brick walls, leather booths, lots of TVs and a very attractive lighting. The service was excellent and friendly and food was delicious. Cocktails were also amazing! We sat outside by the waterfall and came back in for dessert. This friendly... More

Let me start by saying that I was at this restaurant only 10 months ago for the trivia night.. and the food was really good; which is why when the groupon came out I was excited. I went last night.. and if it wasn't for the fact that I already bought the groupon.. We would've walked out after the app... More

The place is dark, dirty and the food is disgusting! The only good thing I can say is a few of the servers/ bartenders were great and actually knew what they were doing. The chicken says that it's stuffed and it's not, French onion has been stewing for a year and the pizza takes atleast an hour. You couldn't pay... More

Went to this establishment with a Groupon, as did at least 4 other couples there. After seeing the menu and the pictures of the inside we were ready to be impressed. The parking lot was more impressive than this place. I can't call it a restaurant. A restaurant serves food, this place gives you slop. The menu shown on the... More

With a groupon/coupon inviting us to this location, my college pal and I chose it for our monthly night out. Not much atmosphere. The honey barbecue tenders were good. My chowder was probably poured out of a can and very salty. My friend's limp caeser salad was small. Her baked haddock dinner was not seasoned and lacked presentation. I, who... More

The Riverside Lounge is really sort of a new twist on throw-back style lounge. The lighting is a modern take on lounge neon and the dark wood and tin ceiling would have fit in many 50's or 60's establishments. The food, beer selection and wine list continue the theme with everything from a 'new' Buffalo Chicken Rangoon through Burgers, Pizza... More
