I am happy to say that our experience was much better than the other reviews I've read on this page. My husband and I both live in Bedford, but have never been here before. We decided to get a beer and some nachos. Our server was very attentive, and our beer and nachos came very quickly. It was not... read more

We went on word of mouth and we had fish and chips and caesar salad and sweet potatoes fries. The fish was good portions but it seemed liked it sat under lights for too long the batter was soggy, and the fries seemed to have been reheated.

The food was cool not hot and the coffee luke warm I would not return to this place for any reason. The juke box played music loudly and was not to my liking.

me and my boyfriend go here all the time. We went tonight February 7th and had the worst service by crystal. I ordered boneless wings and a salad. All I got were wings with the bone in ! I couldn't find my server to help me correct the order. I had to wave over another server and tell her this... More

About 10 of us went for drinks and some food. Our waitress was attentive and friendly. We shared 3 orders of wings ( they were half price) and were ok. Two orders of Nachos were cold when they arrived. As there were not a lot of people there there was no real reason for them to not to arrive hot.... More

This was our first visit to the Riverside Pub and Eatery. My wife and I went for dinner - what a mistake. We ordered the split pea soup, French onion soup and an 8oz steak. After waiting almost 40 minutes our waitress brought the split pea soup which was stone cold. Instead of sending it back (being hungry and thinking... More

This place was a tad noisy but it is a pub after all. The fish and Cesar salad(substituted for chips) were delicious. Service was friendly although a bit slow.

Have been visiting the Riverside pub for about 20years. The food is always consistent, long term staff fantastic, decor a little jaded, and the entryway definitely needs work. However the warmth of the people keep bringing the customers back, again and again. The wings on Wednesday and pan fried haddock on Fridays cannot be outdone anywhere.. Look beyond the entryway...

The Riverside is always packed by 6pm on Fridays. Everyone is there for the fish. Fantastic value and we love the buzz atmosphere. Try to be there by 5:30, but if not the wait is usually not more than 20 minutes.

We took a drive out to this pub from Halifax because the reviews were very good for both the wings and burgers. We don't know because when we opened the door to enter the building the entrance way was filthy and food all over the floor. It may have the best food around but I we have no idea because... More
