We don't visit the restaraunt often enough. It's off the beaten path but the trip is worth it. The food is always good. We love the fish cornbread sticks!

This restaurant we visitied with family who live in the city of Knigsport and we were quite delighted with the variety of sea food, the staff were very friendly and the table we reserved was ready when we arrived. The price of our meals were just right and my family will return soon next... More

This restaurant had been recommended by a friend, so we drove out of our way to try it on vacation. It was worth every mile! Our waitress, Amie R., was very accommodating and made sure we were completely satisfied. I don't understand the review that claimed it was overpriced. We had very generous portions at prices that are definitely competitive... More

Service - Perfect. THE BEST Managed Restaurant and THE BEST Staff! Food - Perfect. Amazing. Again... Every time is like the first time, it's that good. Value - definitely have paid WAY more for worse (e.g. Paris/London/Rotterdam/Nashville/etc.). Atmosphere - Perfect. My favorite place to wait by the River*. Romance - Perfect. My girl loves it too! ;) *Sun Tzu

Very good food. Good service. The only thing is this place is way too expensive for what it is. I won't be back because of the pricing. The harbor house in Abingdon is just as good with alot better value.

I have been eating at this establishment for many years. I very much enjoy the atmosphere and quality of the food served in this restaurant. From the fresh fish choices to the wonderful desserts, there are choices for everyone. I tried the crab quiche today which was wonderful. I highly recommend the Riverfront Seafood Company.

My husband is retirement age and his Godmother has been around significantly longer than that and BOTH say the blackberry cake is the best cake they have ever experienced. I allowed myself one tiny taste and it was pure heaven. Go eat cake!

After seeing mixed reviews, we were a bit hesitant to try this place, but I'm glad we did! We had a great view of the river, and Jess provided great service. The seafood was hot and delicious! We started off with the shrimp and sausage egg rolls, followed by Cajun tilapia and crab legs. The tart key lime pie was... More

Coming from the north over 20 years ago, I thought I would never have seafood like it again. But at Riverfront Seafood Company, I thought I was home. I just had their 'Shrimp & grits' recommended by their waitress Jessica and it was absolutely great. Ask for her. Fine family as well. It would be worth the entire trip. Rev.... More
