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

Options are quite limited in Bedford as there aren't many places to choose from! Luckily the Riverside Pub is here, I'd vote it the best place to eat in Bedford. This is a perfect place to meet friends or coworkers for drinks, have dinner with your spouse, etc. This was our starting spot for girls night out one time. They... More

had the 2 for 1 steak on Saturday night, which was really good and excellent value ($13.99). The live music was an added bonus. It was really busy when we got there around 6.30 pm but a bit quieter when we left an hour later. Service was quick and efficient and the waitress friendly and helpful. Will definitely go back...
