We visited the restaurant on a Friday night at 5pm, right as they opened. There were already about 3 couples there waiting. Upon opening, we were seated promptly. We opted for indoor dining because it was quite warm outside. The outdoor, screened in dining area looked very nice. The indoor dining area was small but was extremely inviting and comfortable....

Riverbend has the best catfish & seafood around, in my opinion. The best coleslaw & hushpuppies, and there's a boat dock if you want to come by boat. Friendly & personal service

The first time we tried to visit the restaurant, it was closed. On weekdays it's only open in the evenings. We went back for lunch on Saturday, however, and we were glad we did. The atmosphere in the restaurant was really cute, charming and up-to-date. You couldn't tell from the outside of the restaurant how nice it was inside. Our... More

When driving to this place, you feel like you are lost. Then you finally arrive. When you walk in, you don't get greeted like they want your business. We went on Mothers Day. We had a party of 9. My sister in law ordered a burger. When she tried explaining to the server that her burger was undercooked and she... More

The view is awesome! We sipped on bottled beer while watching all the boats pulling tubes and jet ski's playing in the water. The food was great. We had appetizers of alligator, frog legs, and alligator eggs (stuffed jalapenos). We were brought bowls of beans, coleslaw, and jalapeno hushpuppies! Everyone was stuffed before the food arrived. The catfish is large... More
