Local restaurant with interesting choices, enjoy the bar, sit outside and enjoy how water runs graciously along the river, smoke without worries talking to friends in the back yard. Good local meat and fish. They run specials every day evening, you can eat and eat and eat for just one price

We came here for dinner on recommendation of our B&B hosts. The window table with the view of the river was a delight, and the food was very tasty. Grilled salmon was seasoned just right and a large portion was more than I could eat. Steamed vegetables and a salad rounded out my meal. Frog legs were crispy and delicious... More

Bar scene, but the food is really good. Large party at the table next to ours, likely 20 people, loud and drunk, but it's a bar, so no place for kids. Small town and everyone know each other. Hard to find if you're not a local, kind of out of town.

We both had the catfish sandwich. It wasn't the best I've ever had, but it was pretty good. Cole slaw was yummy, as was the french onion soup. We stopped there later for a drink and the martinis were surprisingly good. The best part is definitely the water view while dining.

Nice relaxed dinner with family. Beware, you must be 19 or older to enter. They had a good selection of fish and seafood for a small Midwest town. Atmosphere was laid back and cozy. Nice place to enjoy a few cocktails, have dinner and watch the river flow by outside.

We ate in the bar which seemed to be filled with locals. The dining room look like it had a fantastic view of the river The service was a little slow but what do you expect for a bar Hamburger was good and so were the corn nuggets

Never the same! Salads are the worst anywhere! But a fun place with good staff. Menu needs to be stepped up!

Our first visit came in with mixed reviews. The blue cheese dressing was great! The creamy coleslaw was nice, cottage cheese was watery(?). The lake perch was good, needed some seasoning. The frog legs were old and rubbery and quite tasteless. Thinking that a steak or tenderloin is more likely to turn better results. The wait staff was very accommodating... More

Riversides food was delicious! The mushrooms are marinated in red wine and really very tasty. We enjoyed an unusual appetizer- deep fried gizzards. They were quite good as well. My meal was a Filet which was grilled to perfection. The meal ended with a signature Woody. The Woody was actually the best part of the meal. It is an ice... More
