Nice little place

This is a nice little place in "downtown" West Bend. Convenient location, pleasant, very casual atmosphere. The small area at street level has a bar and bistro tables for dining. There are a couple of sidewalk tables and there are additional, more formal, dining tables on the lower... read more

In town to attend a Drum Corps Competition, and wanted to eat at a local place. I read the TripAdvisor reviews and decided to give it a try. The reviews couldn't have more accurate! We went on a Friday evening and had the fried shrimp with homemade potato pancakes. The food was good, the beer was cold, and the service... More

I have consistently had good experiences at the Riverside. The food is always great, the service is friendly, and the owner always stops by to check if we were pleased with our dining experience. Even my 89 year old mother likes this place, and she's hard to please. There's also a good assortment of beer on tap and occasionally decent... More

Friendly servers and very good food. Pricing is well within the quality of the service and food. I do wish the area that the restaurant was in would be easier for parking. There is also a bar that is a "dive" that bring down the area (River Horse West is a dump.

The food is very good, the beers even better. The service is great, the location is ideal. Not many options for nice dining in West Bend but this is certainly one of them. Highly recommended.

We were traveling through West Bend and decided to stop at the Riverside Brewery for lunch. We entered into a nice bar and were taken to a nicely appointed dining room downstairs to our table. The dining room has a nice view of the river, but I don't think it's handicap accessible as I did not see an elevator. They... More

We dined at Riverside Brewery. We had reservations for 5:30pm on a Saturday evening. While the food was delicious, the customer service leaves a little bit to be desired. Approximately 10 minutes after we had finished our meal we were approached by who seemed to be the restaurant owner or manager and were asked to leave because they needed the... More

I stumbled across this place. I enjoy craft beer and meat. The staff was very friendly and professional, and the surroundings were upscale in feel and ambiance, but not to the point of being stuffy and swanky. I choose the special for the day - baby backs - and they were excellent. The IPA, "Don't Worry Be Hoppy", had great... More

We went here for dinner but also needed a place to continue our business conversation. We ate downstairs which was very pleasant but also wasn't too noisy even though most tables were filled. The food was typical bar fair but with more options. Everyone came away satisfied and commented that it was all very good.

Extensive offerings on Tap! Numerous food offerings and daily specials. I had been here a few years ago before I wrote reviews. Still great and has stood the test of time. Many food choices, as well as beer choices. Will definitely visit when back in town.
