Our waitress was great and the grouper was good - but it was hot and had a crazy bar vibe vs. a restaurant vibe. I'd eat there again...but maybe earlier and on a cooler day.

The restaurant sits behind a bait and tackle store under an overpass...we almost missed it. Made a second attempt to find it and two guys were standing int he parking lot who guided us to it. The restaurant itself is, in our opinion, dark and dingy but did have a water view. The waitress was very nice, polite and provided... More

We usually dine at Riverside each time we vacation in Vero. The fish and chips are delicious! Restaurant is right on the water.

Great location, you can tie your boat up, awesome view of sunsets, and fresh local seafood. My favorite items on the menu are the Raw Oysters, Ahi Tuna Nachos, Bahamian Conch Salad, and the Jake Owen Mahi Fish Sandwich. Raw oysters from Apalachicola. Enjoy the awesome food and view.

Good stop for drinks and food. Great views of the water on the river. Plenty off bar space. Wait time was quick for a table. Food was good as well. It's a little hidden in the park.

Honestly I never had a bad meal there. I have been there many times and love the food. Great happy hour. Service can be shaky at times. Great value for the price.

Dana was our server. We've come here off and on for years, and she's a fixture; it happens that we seem to get her each time, which is a good thing. Personable, knowledgeable (it's the only restaurant she's ever worked in), and attentive, she always gets it right. Food there is a good value, with an extensive casual menu. I... More

While staying in Vero my boyfriend and I decided to get an early dinner at Riverside after seeing it while on a fishing charter in the morning. When we arrived the place looked packed, but we were quickly seated at a large table on the deck overlooking the water. Unfortunately, it took over 10 minutes for anyone to notice that... More

We went to another place and found it closed. We passed this and decided to stop. We all loved it. Great atmosphere, good food, service and we were happy with our choice. Pictures and guitar that belong to Jake Owen country music star in the lobby. He lives in the area.

We came for a Father's Day lunch with our teenagers. Food was good for what is essentially a bar. We sat outside on the riverfront. Very nice view. Boats and people out on the dock fishing. Service was ok. Being outside, I think they could have checked in on us more. (I would have had another prosecco had our server... More
