Love this place!

We (8 of us) went here (Thursday, July 16, 2015) while we were at Emerald Isle for vacation. We made reservations (glad we did) & the prior reviews we read helped. 2 had the crabcakes (delicious), 5 had the soft shell crabs (the best we've had in a long time & reasonable compared to other... read more

Great service, great food. Whole family loved the sweet potato muffins. The she crab soup was delish! Everyone had seafood, it was all terrific. If you're driving by on the way to the beach, MAKE THE STOP!

The atmosphere is really nice but the food is average. The hostess is an older lady and she is often an absolute snob to my little family. The waitstaff has always been very kind (we have been there 4-5 times)

We have been visiting this area for years and after I read all the positive reviews, I knew we had to try this place. I am so glad we did. Everything was delicious from the homemade salad dressings and sweet potato muffins to the entrees (we tried some of the many nightly specials). Unfortunately we did not have room for... More

You can't go wrong with this place. The food was excellent. The sweet potato muffins were to die for. Get a basket of those. The waiter was very knowledgable of the menu. Great place!

A girlfriend & I decided to go to Swansboro for dinner & stumbled upon this restaurant. We had a wonderful server & the food he recommended was absolutely amazing! Everything came out at the appropriate times & was very fresh! You must try the blackened scallop nachos add an appetizer & grouper as an entree! We will be back again!

One of the many things we love about the Riverside -- they take reservations! Food is excellent, service is usually very attentive and friendly. My husband had the grouper; I had crab cakes. Both were wonderful.

This place has made major progress. On a recent visit, multiple salad dressings were made in-house, the main entrees were all creative and unique, and everything we had--from appetizer to soup to main course--was very well executed. It seems like they've made an effort to be a little less of a beachy typical tourist place and more of a truly... More

Some food was good, some was okay.. The service we had was pretty slow, especially for a Sunday night. They had business but getting our food and going the entire time without a drink was a little much. My husband had a steak and said it was delicious! All of the food was very fresh and the sweet potato muffins... More

We have been frequent visitors of Riverside Steak and Seafood. The atmosphere is casual and we have always been treated like VIP guests. We prefer to sit upstairs but downstairs is lovely as well, just busier. There is a bar and TV upstairs; more laid back. The food is wonderful. You get very generous portions and it's authentic seafood and... More
