Top Notch

My wife, daughter, and myself had dinner there on Memorial Day. The service and food were excellent. Starting with the shrimp appetizer, salads, she crab soup, to the steaks it was all top notch. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Wonderful restaurant although reservations are necessary. We enjoyed delicious she-crab soup (lots and lots of crab) as an appetizer. Our entrees came with salad and vegetables - a nice addition to the large dinner portions (which we could not finish). We had two of the nightly specials - the catch of the day and the lobster ravioli with shrimp and... More

Located in a historical house on Hwy 24 in Swansboro don't miss it! This restaurant serves dinner only and is the best one in town for top quality and high end service. You will find it to be relaxed and quieter than most others.It is family friendly or for couples. There is a bar upstairs, also seating for serving meals.... More

Visiting Emerald Isle for first time looking for a restaurant for dinner. "Riverside" had the most cars, so decided to try it. Seated promptly in a booth, our server Dani was extremely patient and helpful with details and suggestions even though it was evident she was busy with other tables. I had filet with shrimp and scrumptious Bernaise sauce and... More

We were seated upstairs and I thought everything was perfect. Our waitress was nice and great in suggesting items. The scallop nachos were the best thing I had eaten all week!

We ate here a year ago late at night after a high school graduation and the service was not the best. However, recent reviews gave it such high marks we tried again. There were four of us and we did arrive early about 6:15 and avoided the crowds. We were promptly seated, drink orders taken and provided by a knowledgeable... More

I ate at this restaurant this week while returning from the Morehead City area for work. The restaurant inside is very cozy and comfortable. It appears to be a refurbished old house that offers a unique ambiance with mood lighting, nice views and many rooms to choose from. There is even a second floor with tv's for watching sports events.... More

After a couple of not very good experiences on Emerald Isle, one much overpriced and hyped, we drove the three or so miles into Swansboro looking for better food and value. Although not strictly "riverside" the "Riverside" immediately won us over. Situated in a house with historic local associations, the restaurant clearly understands the importance if quality ingredients, thoughtfully prepared... More

Our family had dinner at Riverside in nearby Swansboro on a rainy weekday evening. There were a good number of patrons there, and the atmosphere was quite pleasant. We decided to try the Scallop nachos as an appetizer - the scallops were delicious: great combination of flavors, cooked perfectly, a very creative dish. Then we all had a fish and... More

The name says it all... Steaks and Seafood. If that's what you're after in Swansboro, don't miss this place. Quaint atmosphere, good seating, pleasant wait staff. Not cheap but good steaks are worth it.
