Beautiful Location, Good Food

Our daughter found the Riverside Grill on her way to work and she knew I would enjoy it. It sits right by the water of the Clinch River and Melton Hill Lake. It is a great location just on the outskirts of Oak Ridge, TN. Whether you sit inside or outside, you have a nice view of the water, a... read more

My wife and I took my parents out for lunch and wanted to try something new. My wife said it is so hot let's find a place with a water view. I did a search and we selected this place and I'm glad we did. First of all the staff was fantastic we could not have asked for better service... More

Great view of the river, great food, great drinks, service was a.w.e.f.u.l! On Saturday around 7:00, we arrived to a half empty restaurant, and a 30-40 minute wait. Our drinks took forever to get there, only half of us received our salads, our appetizer arrived 1 minute before our entrees, dirty plates sat on our table forever, drinks didn't get... More

My husband and I love Riverside. The view can't be beat - the restaurant is situated right on a peninsula on the Clinch River/Melton Hill Lake. The covered patio area overlooks the water, as do many of the indoor tables in both the restaurant and the bar. The food is top notch - especially the meatloaf. The complimentary bread is... More

Find another place to eat in Oak Ridge. We had a great table with a nice view for a party of 6 but things went downhill from there. The restaurant was only at half capacity (if that) at 6:00 on a Saturday evening. We ordered drinks which took unusually long to arrive. They had a crab cake special but was... More

My company hold our company meeting here often, the accommodations are good and the food is great, at times it can be time consuming when it comes to our food being delivered, but we like the service and the price is inline with our budgets. We truly love the view of the river when holding out meetings here. Give it... More

Our server was very courteous and well informed on menu and specials. Bread was very good as well as our meal. We couldn't eat it all. Of course the restaurant seats on the side of the lake which gives for a great view.

I've been here 3 times and each time has been wonderful! The food is excellent and the service is outstanding not to mention the view is amazing as well. I've had the spicy shrimp several times which are to die for. The bread is fresh and warm with good butter. The chicken pot pie is wonderful as is the meatloaf.... More
