My family gathered at Riverside for the Sunday Brunch on Mothers Day. It was very good. They have the usual breakfast fare plus seafood. Some of the items they offered were eggs, bacon, biscuits, sausage gravy, pancakes, fish, grits, shrimp, clams, oysters, mussels, and an omelet bar. They also have the fixings for salad and they have fresh fruit as... More

We enjoyed our view of the waterway and the bridge while dining. You can sit inside or out -- just ask. Casual dining experience. Excellent fish sandwich served in a generous portion. Chowder is great, too! Iced tea is from a fountain and is NOT freshly brewed which is the only downside to this quaint, local establishment.

This is a nice spot to enjoy dinner on the water. The hostess and wait staff were very friendly and helpful. There were six in our party,and all enjoyed their choices. We loved the onion straws! I had the fish taco and thought it was the best I have experienced. For dessert we shared the chocolate peanut butter pie and... More

Not much to say About this place other than it has a nice view. It had a bad smell when we walked in and I think our waitress forgot about us. She never came to take our order so we got up and left. She told us the specials and said they were small portions and left. Never to be... More

This was a nice setting on the Indian River but the food was only average. We were hoping for a nice salad, baked potato and fresh fish. They offered fish sandwiches and fish and chips.

We've visited 3 times so far and every time we ask for a seat by the window. When we arrive the place is nearly empty but the person seating us tries to steer us away from a table by the water by saying "it's reserved". We are there for nearly and hour and no one arrives to take the table!... More

Took us three years of staying a month at Vero Beach each winter to go to The Riverside Café. What were we thinking? On the water right next to Barber Bridge. Dine in or eat out on their deck when weather is good. Wonderful casual food. Great wait staff. Hostesses always friendly and helpful. Then there is the food. Lots... More

Great place for Cocktails and Snacks. Good night bands as well! Make sure you get a seat at the bar as it gets crowded. Also, great Sunday Brunch
