“Good Belizean pub experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2014

Service is excellent. Beer and cocktails are very good. Wine is okay. Food is good. The burgers are the best choice. Location by the river is very nice. Inside has a very nice pub/sports bar feel. Excellent when international tournaments are on.

“Good Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2014

We stopped here at noon hour on a very hot day. There were no tables inside so we had to sit out on the patio. It was extremely hot there despite the fact that all the overhead fans were running. Service was prompt and courteous.
A manager even came out and turned the volume on the speaker down, even though it was not really bothering us. I ordered a burger pattie without the bun and salad and it was very tasty.
Next time I would sit inside with A/C even if I had to sit at the bar. A very good eating choice in Belize City, especially if you are wanting an American type experience. My husband likes that they have draft beer.

“Still Consistently the Best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2014

Why I eat at Riverside Tavern a lot is because:
- The have consistently good draft Belikin beer
- The ambiance is good and the staff very welcoming
- Their Wi-Fi is good (and they are happy to reset it if needs be)
- Their food is of a consistent good quality
- Their management are attentive to customer needs

My favourite thing on their menu is the Sliders where $12 Bz ($6 US) gets you 5 mini-burgers which you can dress up with bacon and cheese for a little extra. I normally get these to take away.

It is also a good place to go with guests and family for a sit-down meal.

“Good food, long waits”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2014

This place is in a nice spot off Freetown Road in northern BC near the river, and has a very American style menu. The Fire House Burger and any kind of fish are not a bad choice, but the prices are a little more expensive than most Belizean restaurants. Also expect an extremely long time to get the food after ordering and if you try to get any additional drinks during the meal. Would still come back though due to the very diverse menu choices for Belize.
