The food was relatively simple, but great. It's always good to have a nice view and comfortable atmosphere. We enjoyed our meal while watching iguanas next to the Belize River. We will go back the next time we visit Belize City.

This is our go to place whenever we have a hankering for a good gourmet burger. They are juicy and full of flavor. I also appreciate how you can choose the patty size which comes with the appropriate size bun. I recommend this spot for any friends visiting BC and want an American style meal.

The food was not impressive by it could have been what I had. The atmosphere was cool, but it took over two hours to get our food. It was a party of 12, but most of the people ordered salads. I'm not sure why it took so long. Another issue we had was when we had to pay our bill.... More

Everything was good here, but nothing Belizean about it. We have struggled to find any place at all to eat in Belize City (staying in an AirBnb, outside the city) very few local choices for timid tourists. We had burgers and chicken wings, typical of menu. Good, but nothing to especially recommend about the experience.

We enjoyed having lunch here upon arrival in Belize City. Just what we needed: a varied menu, wonderfully tasty juice, and a great server (Alton). Thank you!

The Riverside Inn is a bar-restaurant with both indoor and patio seating. the back patio has pleasant view of a small river. The food was mostly American, and tasted good with typical American prices. I ordered a huge burger that was too big to finish with fries and a beer. It was about $16 US. There were lots of other...

The ceviche was delicious! We sat on the veranda and enjoyed the river front view. It was just a quick walk from our hotel and well worth the visit.
