Excellent food at a restaurant with indoor and outdoor seating on the river. Friendly staff. Good bar. TV's in some areas so you can watch sports. What more can you ask for?

This is right on the ICW with adjacent park you can take your dinghy to and park it during dinner. We were a large group with a variety of orders and everything was great. The service was exceptional!

Sarah was our server. She was very attentive and friendly, our local Louisiana Saints fan. The game didn’t go our way, but we had a wonderful night at the Riverside cafe. Nice place to watch the sunset
