Love this place! The Belikin is on draft and the burgers are to die for. The service is excellent. We enjoy ourselves every time we visit the Riverside Tavern.

This one is near the top of everyone's list and it deserves to be there. Great food, wonderful atmosphere. Sit out on the back deck if you can. It overlooks a canal which is nice, even though the view on the other side is not great. It has lots of party nights but we were in the slow season so... More

From the appetizer of the Tower of Onion Rings to the famous list of Burgers, this dining experience was enjoyable. There are so many choices on the menu and the service was smooth. The place gets loud on peak nights. Lunch time is much quieter for conversations.

Excellent food can be found at RiversideTavern as well as good service. The prices are close to what you'd expect to pay in a quality resaurant in the US. The fresh catch was snapper both nights I ate there and it was excellent, especially the citrus sauce, both nights having it grilled once and blackened the other. The nieghborhood seems... More

Food is quite good. Good menu. Clean modern place with lots of parking. Back deck overlooking the river is very nice. Inside is also good, but quite noisy when busy. Probably one of the best in the city.

Quite a large menu but the fool was great Helpings were very large, especially the Nachos. Mixed drinks were good, though a bit weak. Friendly staff.
