Great seafood

Great seafood. I enjoy going in good weather and sitting on the patio (deck). The river makes an enjoyable dining experience.

I have been to Riverfront about 10 times now and every time it is the same. The food is very good, maybe a bit pricey, but the service is never anything above average. Although I have never personally met the manager, I have heard nothing but bad things about him. My rating is based primarily on the service/management. It has... More

Loved the location and environment of the restaurant. Awesome view and plenty of room inside. Our table ordered a variety of seafood and steak and we were very pleased with how everything was cooked and tasted. Seafood was very fresh and had a great taste. Love the option to order your choice of seasoning on the seafood as well. Would... More

My husband and I ate lunch at Riverfront Seafood on Valentine's Day. We had reservations and we were seated after a very brief 5 minute or so wait. The waitress was very helpful and knew the menu very well. I had the crab cakes and my husband had the grilled swordfish. We ordered the carrot cake for dessert and I... More

This is my favorite place to eat in Kingsport. The Alaskian white fish is fantastic. The manager does so much for the local wrestling team as well. He truly is a great individual.

My wife and I recently had the misfortune of attempting to dine at this restaurant. We each ordered one of the catches of the day with blackened seasoning. One bite was all we could stomach because the seasoning was loaded with faaaaar too much salt. Our thoughts were that someone had mistakenly added the multitude of salt but the manager... More

Before we ate lunch at Riverfront Seafood I read some reviews which were less than favorable. We had eaten there before and thoroughly enjoyed our meal. We chose to eat there again, and again, our meals were excellent. I ate grilled salmon and my husband ate fried shrimp. We will return there any time we are in the area.
