Met my USMC alum form Newport there. Nice selection of beers. Interesting appetizers. Grouper was really nice. Prices reasonable. I will return!

I cannot rave enough about the food here. I feel I've tasted numerous steaks in my life, but I don't know if any match-up to the filet mignon I got here.. so tender, tasty, seasoned perfectly. They have these neat, delicious sweet potato rolls in addition to the meal that our fantastic. The other two people with me had lasagna,... More

The portions were big. Had to take the rest to go. Food was wonderful. Great service and nice clean restaurant. The prices are a little high but the serving sizes make up for it. Usually with a high price restaurant you get small portions but this was not true here. Will be going back again soon.

We liked the view because we asked to be seated in the booths where you could see a touch of the White Oak River. We've been there a few times and live about 5 minutes away. The food over all was good. We like simple fare so sauces over simple dishes are not are favorites, however that being said the... More

Must try the stuffed grouper. This is an old home-converted to a restaurant. Nice atmosphere-friendly wait staff and good food!

My family while vacationing on Emerald Isle made reservations here based upon the other reviews. WE WERE NOT DISAPPOINTED. Nine adults and three children were in our party. We made reservations a week ahead. We were greeted with a smile and our table was ready for us. Our server was very pleasant and although she was very busy, she made... More

Dined here for the first time recently, with my husband to celebrate our anniversary. It was offseason and they were not terribly busy but we had excellent service! The food was plentiful and delicious. I am a seafood lover so I ordered the lobster ravioli with shrimp and scallops. My husband had the 10oz ribeye. Both meals came with a... More

Riverside was highly recommended by friends so after driving past it every day for 15 months, we finally stopped in for dinner. It wasn't until we were speaking with the maitre d that we learned that a Riverside opened its doors 50 years ago. The longevity is not an accident. As promised, the food and the service were equally wonderful.... More

Had seen good reviews for this restaurant prior to our stay and it also came recommended by the hotel where we stayed. Great crab appetizer and huge dinner portions...tuna steak was done to my liking and lobster ravioli had huge scallops and shrimp as well...really great meal. Let's not forget the sweet potato muffins-a wonderful addition!

We had visited this restaurant before and were really disappointed this time. We started with a cocktail which tasted as if it were made with bottom shelf liquor. We didn't particularly enjoy them so didn't get a second. Salad was fresh but homemade dressings were terrible. A small sweet potato roll was given with the salad but no butter offered.... More
