Good, not great

The office staff at the cabin rental agency in Blue Ridge highly recommended the Toccoa Riverside Restaurant. There was a short waiting list, but the receptionist bungled our name on the list. She seated several others who came in after us first. We weren't in a hurry, so the minor inconvenience... read more

I am a lover of whole fried catfish. They only offer filets which are okay but not my favorite. Mashed potatoes are very good as are some of their desserts. Beautiful scenic river view!

Beautiful scenery with the river behind the restaurant. Great green bean apps, local beer on draft and good Cajun Trout.

This is the fourth time we have graced our presence to this establishment. Each time I try something different, and each time I have been disappointed in something. The only reason we went back this time is because it was our friends birthday, and on your birthday you receive a free dinner from their 'birthday dinner' menu. Before ordering I... More

I love this restaurant and have been here many, many times before the fire and since it was rebuilt. Two points: 1. It is very, very nice to sit on the porch (closed in with clear plastic when it's cold out), where there is a terrific view of the river and of rafters floating by in the summer. You cannot... More

We were a bit timid to try this restaurant due to the previous reviews and the comments regarding the temperament of the owner, but we decided to give them a try, anyway. This beautiful cabin-themed restaurant is situated on the edge of the Toccoa River, and the view is really nice. Our server was funny and polite, and he was... More

We were on the porch with plastic sheets enclosing it. There were heaters that kept us warm. The menu was diverse with a number of options. There were a number of trout dishes but found they actually came from a trout farm nearby. Service was good and attentive. Food was average but not exceptional. I understand that during summer months... More

The waiter who served us was excellent and the view was picturesque, and that is the only reason that I did not give this establishment 1 star/poor rating. The chef and management do not have a customer service mentality. If you do decide to go, don't bother complaining about your food at all because they will not replace it. They... More

I had read a number of negative reviews of this restaurant so we had not tried it on previous trips. Because we were staying near it today, we stopped for lunch, to give it a try. The service was great, Tim! We ordered 3 appetizers - fried mushrooms with horseradish sauce, crab cakes with roumelade and seared ocean scallops in... More

The restaurant sits feet away from the Toccoa River. They have an outside seating area which was not open when we were there for service (we went in December) but you could walk around and enjoy the view. Other than the view nothing was exceptional. We had read reviews and were skeptical. A friend of mine (that I respect for... More
