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

We arrived late on a Friday night and decided to have drinks and appetizers. The bar keeper was very attentive and after ordering a round of cocktails, we perused the menu and ordered the scallop nacho special and crab cakes. The first was outstanding served over a homemade tortilla drizzled with chipotle sauce and avocado. The crab cakes were not... More

While visiting a friend in Cape Carteret, he took me to this restaurant and I absolutely LOVED it. Best fillet mignon I've ever had! Service and atmosphere were excellent and the prices were very reasonable. If you find yourself in that neck of the woods and like steak and/or seafood, don't miss Riverside Steak and Seafood!

Other than being up a flight of stairs the restaurant's food was good but also sizable portions. Service was very good and the restaurant offered an excellent waterfront view. The staff was very friendly and they had live entertainment, although I do not believe they have it every day.

On the recommendation of the Hampton Inn Hotel receptionist, we drove the 1 mile to this restaurant, as it was raining. A terrific recommendation. Loved the atmosphere and the staff were brilliant. Very busy when we arrived, mid week, which was a good sign, and were told that there was a 15 minute wait. We went upstairs to a terrific... More

Desperate and hungry because our first choices of places to eat near Emerald Isle - a bbq truck we were willing to gamble on for the first time was closed and a local oyster house didn't have local oysters yet, we rolled the dice on this place based on the reviews, despite our skepticism. Sadly, Riverside met our expectations: it... More

Riverside seems to be a converted family home. I must admit I was a little nervous at first glance. The place needs a little updating but the food a service make up for outdated appearance. Everything we ate was great and I have been feening for another taste of the Scallop Nachos appetizer. Make sure you call and make a... More

Menu looked okay when we first went in, I was worried. We all chose something different and we all loved it! All 6 of us. Huge portions from Italian to seafood! I got ribeye and it was delicious. We were very surprised and it's definitely one we would go back to next time no question!

We celebrated our wedding anniversary while on vacation and Riverside came highly recommended. Fortunately, we called for reservations because the wait when we arrived was tremendous. We had a few minutes to kill so we went upstairs to the bar. Apparently, there was a large (greater than 20) party seated upstairs and the wait staff was quite overwhelmed. There were... More
