Great food with a great view!

after taking a nice walk to the boat house we were ready for a nice meal. We had a nice variety to choose from. Some of us had salads that were very generous. The cheeseburger that I had was very tasty. The gentleman who served us was very courteous

I took my parents here one Saturday for lunch. This was my second visit. We ate a late lunch (2 PM) and the restaurant was almost empty. The host and waitress were very nice. There are nice views of the water from all the tables. We started the meal with friend green beans and ranch dip. It was excellent. Fried... More

The meeting had a good variety of appetizers, they were very good, warm and tasty. We should have more after hours meeting at the Riverside Grill.

Excrllent food and service. Nice view on the water especially during rowing season. We eat here quite often and have never been disappointed. We always bring out of town guests to eat at Riverside because we know they will be satisified with everything. We especially like their homemade bread they bring to the table. Fresh out of the oven.

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
