“Awesome food and service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2014

We found the Riverside tavern on trip advisor.com when we were vacationing in Niagara Falls Ontario. This place is fantastic! The restaurant has been recently remodeled and us very pretty. After dining out in Ontario for 6 days we were blessed to find this restaurant. This was by far the best restaurant and food that we got to experience while on vacation. Our waitress Chris was very sweet and took very goo do care of our table. She even looked around for paper and a highlighter so my 2 year old could draw while she waited for her food. We will definitely be coming back the next time we are in town! :)

“Gluten Free/Dairy Free/Allergy Friendly Options”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2014

Riverside Tavern is worth the short drive to Chippawa Village (a few miles outside of the hustle and bustle of Niagara Falls). There is ample free parking and it has an enclosed porch eating area with a great view of the river. The owner has celiac disease, so she was able to guarantee my family's safe eating experience as well as provide delicious food for the other six people in our party (who had pizza, quesadillas, pulled pork). My son and I had the chicken fingers (gluten free/dairy free/egg free) and french fries with a really yummy plum sauce, and my husband had the traditional chicken wings with hot BBQ sauce (gluten free/dairy free/egg free). It was all very tasty! For dessert, my son had the cherry crumble (gluten free/dairy free/egg free), which was incredible! What a nice surprise to find an allergy friendly place on the spur of the moment! The owners were especially accommodating, going over the menu options with us, item by item. We sat outside, but went inside to play some pool with the kids while we waited for our food. The restaurant is casual but doesn't feel like a bar/tavern. Very family friendly! Thanks again!! :) Make sure you visit Da Healthy Baker down the road for more allergy-friendly treats!

“Charming in Chippawa”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

This casual restaurant is very hard to define. It is a neighbourhood bar and pub but also has fine dining qualities. Simple decor, intimate seating, pool tables, patio with a fabulous view of the river in Chippawa but still very close to the Falls. Food quality was excellent. A group of us ate lunch and shared pizzas, wings, calamari, salads, and fries. Very thin crust pizzas were baked in a special oven with wonderful combinations to choose from. Calamari was cooked to perfection (not rubber bands). Salad was perfectly dressed (not soupy). Many, many compliments to the chef. Server was very attentive, enthusiastic, patient and kind. This restaurant is hidden away in a quiet corner of Niagara Falls, but yet easy to find. Definitely will go there again. Loved this restaurant/bar/pub and then explored Cummington Square! Great local shops, especially a local artisans shop called Petersons....
