Very expensive even without a drink! Out first time there! You don't get much a little piece of fish!! The waitress was very hateful!! It was not a nice experience! Even for our English Freinds on holiday from uk ! Haven't been back!!!

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.

Great seafood with great service. First time visiting this restaurant and the food and VIEW was excellent. Seated at a table looking over the river while eating perfectly prepared fried oyster dinner. Cannot wait to go again. Everyone at our table loved the food, view and service.

I don't eat seafood, but I have been to Riverfront several times and had either chicken or a burger. Their burgers are delicious every time and the key lime pie is delicious too!
