Very Personal Experience

We were lucky enough to get a reservation on Valentine's Day and it was great. My wife and I had the blackened scallop nachos for an app. and they were wonderful. The host as well as our server (Rick) were very thorough and friendly. I ordered the carpet bagger and my wife had the seered tuna. Both... read more

We have gone to Riverside several times and always gotten the same treatment whether we have a reservation or not. They always try to seat us upstairs at the bar which for someone in a wheelchair is rather ridiculous. The food is good and if you know the right people, you get treated well. However, if their hostess doesn't personally... More

A great place to eat in Swansboro and surrounding area. Our #2 spot, but by no fault of their own. Highly recommended for a quiet dinner.

Went there for my birthday and had an excellent meal. Loved the scallop nachos. They gave me a dessert since it was my birthday and it was almost too big for two of us to eat. I have no complaints and would definitely go back.

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
