This fine food restaurant near Knoxville is not formal, and offers high quality food with a nice river view. Our group of 4 visitors enjoyed a variety of well prepared food: the ribeye was tender and tasty, the chicken and shrimp pasta was creamy, delicately flavored, with sundried tomato, the meat loaf was very good, and the crab cake, though...

You can eat outside near the water. There was also a firepit out front. The menu is varied, with excellent entrée salads. Beer on tap and wine. (We didn't ask about whether it has a full bar).

I got the salmon when I dined there and it was very good. My daughter said she likes to go to happy hour there. It has a good view of the lake.

I went here with several coworkers after a conference. I ordered the fish tacos; they were huge! The fish was cooked perfect, and there was just the right amount of spicy. I will eat there again when I visit Knoxville. The windows were large and offered a great view of the river outside the restaurant.

This restaurant has an outstanding Sunday Brunch with all the regular breakfast items. The omelettes are great and the best part is you can order it from your table and it will be brought to you rather than standing in line. The brunch also features many great lunch items. The location is right on the water and you may even... More

The view was great, the service stellar, but the food was not so great. We chose 2 items from their Signature dishes and found both to be of low caliber. The fish tacos were overly moist, mushy and lacked seasoning. The black bean and corn salsa was just that with a leaf of cilantro - no other spices. The slaw... More

This spot has gone through many owners. The current ones are serving very good food-its menu bears a resemblance to the previous ones (meatloaf, pot roast etc.) and the food is quite good but not great. It is not the cheapest place to eat in Oak Ridge but not unreasonable either. The setting and the rowing course view are beautiful.... More

We enjoy going to Oak Ridge to see a play or just drive around. A favorite restaurant is the Riverside Grill (previously the Flatwater Grill). It is right on the Clinch River/Melton Lake where it is smooth and set up for crewing races. The start line is right at the dock outside of the restaurant and along the windows or... More

As you can tell from most of my reviews, I can find something I like most places I go. I didn't find that true at Riverside Grill. This experience was due in part to a lazy hostess busy talking to her coworker friend and the assistant kitchen manager for the night. We came In around 8:15 from a 3 mile... More
