Fun view and excellent dining.

We had arranged to meet friends for lunch and the Riverside Cafe was not only central for both couples but was the 1st choice for all parties. Excellent food, great location, friendly-efficient service and reasonably priced. Watch boats travel the waterway and enjoy your meal at the same time. Vero... read more

We did not have a reservation. As we entered I must say it wasn't very welcoming. Not one to complain. But this deserves it. Arrived 550pm. We were asked do you have a reservation?, in quite a snotty way by the hostess in the mint green shirt. We said no. We were offered a table in the dark entry way.... More

We arranged to meet friends here for brunch because it was approximately midway between West Palm and Orlando. The $20 brunch was good value for a big appetite but not so good for small eaters. Drinks were extra but good Bloody Mary's and mimosas. The highlight of the meal was the oysters and filet steak. I thought it was a... More

We had a wonderful late lunch here. The food was fantastic and our waitress was very spunky and full of recommendations that helped in our decisions. One of us ordered the soft shell crab sandwich and the crab legs hung out past the bun! We sat inside with a water view since it was a little rainy and windy out.... More

Great location on the river with beautiful sunsets. Seafood very good- would recommend the tuna nachos (not your typical nachos) and the crab BLT - both exceptional! Only complaint is they were out of oysters.

I usually order seafood as much as possible when visiting Florida, but I felt like having a burger for lunch. It was great! My husband had a blackened grouper sandwich that he enjoyed. The location is nice - right on the water. Our three girls enjoyed their lunches too. We will be back.

If you want to go to this restaurant for dinner I recommend you make a reservation. We went there for dinner (for a second try) and waited for nearly an hour and a half for a table before giving up and leaving. When we asked why there were so many empty tables while waiting we were told that they were... More

Great fun! Had a band on Saturday evening that was fantastic! I loved my tuna nachos but hubs did care for the chix quesadillas much. The waitress was very attentive. We ate out by the water & nice for snow birds to hear the splashing against the dock.
