Watching the Sunset

Three of us made a reservation for 6 PM at the Riverside Cafe after checking the time for the sunset set for 6:08 pm approximately. People stand in the bar and outside to watch the sunset over the water. It's absolutely beautiful most evenings. Tonight (Feb. 9th) it was chilly and a little cloudy... read more

We happened upon this place and so glad we did!!!! The food was great! They have happy hour daily from 4-7 pm, too! I had the fresh fish sandwich and it was delicious! My husband had the fish taco and said it was the best he's tried! They have two seating areas: one that is quieter and then the bar... More

Stopped for lunch. Menu is extensive, server was good, but wait for food was long. Blackened shrimp taco was tasty, but black and blue burger was unimpressive. Cole slaw soggy and much too sweet. Prices high. Restaurant atmosphere - well there was none. Can't recommend, wouldn't return

We recently visited for lunch, and it was great! Staff and food both were good! We had not been for years because of inconsistent food, but they have their act together these days! I got one of their salads and some others got the fish tacos. All was good! Go and enjoy!

Tried this place while traveling on a Sunday. Hard to find and was hidden next to the bridge. I had the lump crab cakes appetizer and chicken dumpling soup. Both were good and made for a light lunch. A stop Sunday stop off.

Stopped in for a few drinks on my way back to the Hotel, trying to save some cash on the cab ride back. Cool place! I walked in through the restaurant headed back towards the bar and had a few local brews on tap. Drank my beers, met some locals, had a great time!

Excellent fish and chips with great service. A very clean restaurant especially for being on the water with the docks. If given the chance we will return.

It's advertised as fine dining but definitely not. It's a Sports bar. Very loud inside. Most want to be seated outside. Service was not the best. They need to improve it. Food was good. A good place to go for a beer and wings would sum it up.

We came here for Happy Hour and the atmosphere was second to none. This is a restaurant/bar that is truly on the water and that's the vibe we got. The drinks were good and affordable and we snacked on some apps that were delicious. As the sun sets over the river, you can't help but snap a few pictures. We... More

We visited yesterday and had a nice lunch with a wonderful view of the river and all the boats on their moorings at the marina. If we had stayed a little longer we could have had a nice sunset. The server was very friendly and attentive and the food was good. I don't know about the burgers but we had... More
