Description: The Riverstone Family Restaurant was originally opened and owned by Terry & Belinda Haley in 2004 and gave it its name and the reputation of having the very best food anywhere around. We share the same Rep at the Riverstone Lodge right next door.We truly do have the best of quality of food anywhere. We are from Mississippi and really, really know how to cook real southern food with many years exp. We are open year round 7 days a week serving breakfst, lunch & dinner.We have been licensed as a CERTIFIED ANGUS RESTAURANT serving only certified angus beef for all fresh beef items on menu. If your not aware, certified angus is now said to be better than "PRIME".Nothing but the best. Even our hamburgers are fresh Certified Angus. Hope to see you soon! Don't forget the fresh homemade Fried Green Tomatoes.

“Nice hometown dining”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2011 via mobile

Visited earlier this year before the management changed. Service and food was just as good as before. Even had live music. New management must have worked out the problems from October.

“Great Local Eatery, Atmosphere, Service and REAL Home Cooking!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2011 via mobile

We have eaten here for years. Heard it had new owns so wanted to see if the food was still great. We were not disappointed, it was different but great! Riverstone is a must when you are in Townsend. Try the Jack Daniels burger and fried green tomatoes. Also evening entertainment is so much fun! We will keep coming back and referring our friends!

“Great Small Town Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2011

We had Breakfast and Dinner there the same day! Waitresses very attentive. Food is good and reasonably priced. Atmosphere is quaint. Live entertainment (a vocalist and his guitar) on Friday & Saturday nights that was very talented. Very friendly place.

“A Regular Stop For Us”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2011

Excellent food .... fair prices and a homy atmosphere. Break away from the chain restaurants! What a great place for breakfast ... of course lunch and dinner too.

“More Than a Platefull”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2011

We stopped here for breakfast. First time here and will definitely be back to try lunch. The food and service was great and the portions were huge. If you are hungry for breakfast, try the pancakes or omelettes. The size of the restaurant is deceiving for it looks smaller from the outside, but probably seat 50-60 people. I would recommend this stop to anyone.
