Nice place on the river

Went for a ride in blue ridge and ran across this restaurant on the river. Nice selection on the menu especially for seafood lovers. Make sure you fine outside on the back deck (2 one upper and one lower). Food was good quality as well as the service.

The view of the river from the outside porch was excellent. Nice atmosphere and everyone was extremely friendly. Our waitress was pleasant and did her best to accommodate every request. Unfortunately neither my wife, nor myself were impressed with the food. I think the hype has convinced patrons they must like the food or there's something wrong with them. My... More

I really, really want to love this place, but they need to get their act together food-wise. The scenery and view over the river is gorgeous. The tables, service were all great too. Their food...well....just not so good. And I only write this after three visits! (The location is really great for us!). Their food tends to be greasy or... More

My review may not be completely reliable, since we stopped here (after "accidentally eating elsewhere" )for dessert and coffee only, but here goes... First of all, the location and décor is so relaxing. Grab a spot on the deck if it is available. You can watch the river and kayakers drift past. I really wanted to return at night because... More

No reservations accepted for this beautiful setting on the Toccoa river - great bar setting with just OK food. Pecan-encrusted rainbow trout was the best entree we had - other fish dishes were stock. Parking was an issue but 20 min wait on a Sat night was OK. Knocked off a point for their rude hostess, who seemed overwhelmed and... More

Well parking here is hard, often backing up for a mile up the road, so if you go on the weekend, be prepared to walk down Aska Road a bit to get there. If you can get a table on the patio, the view of the river is so lovely. The food is really only mediocre, but they do have... More

I am a local and haven't been to the Restaurant since it was rebuilt after the fire. Yes, parking is a nightmare...but what do you expect..its built between Aska Road and the Toccoa Riverbank..not much room left for parking. We did have about a 45 min wait for a table of 3..not bad.. It took about 10 minutes before anyone... More

Loved the food at Toccoa Riverside Restaurant, loved the view of the river. HOWEVER; while we were eating our dessert our check came, we paid the bill and continued to finishing coffee, others were finishing beer. We were surprised when the one of the staff came to our table and ask us "to leave our table and go to the... More

Good food and ambience. Fun to eat with the river just below...lots to watch outside while dining. The original restaurant burned down about 3 years ago, and I have found the new building to be much more accommodating and the food much better. Only drawback still is the lack of parking.

Lunch sucked. All I have to say is really really bad. 1 hr 30 minutes to get a sandwich on a Sunday afternoon at 1pm. Food came out cold and the ice tea was warm. I own a cabin on aska rd and want be back. Just another Tourist trap with a view. Owner dose not care locals don't eat... More
