Bar pizza is well, BAR PIZZA. Not many surprises, not sexy but,hey, this is Ipswich so let's keep it simple. That's the formula here- good but not great. The locals salivate at the name "Riverview"' I HAD to try the place when I moved there-...I mean I was told to immediately go there...... so I did. It's limited on many levels BUT the beer was cold and the pizza was hot and good. So, I tried it and now have moved on with my life. Next !!!!!!!!!More

This place has been here for years and a little hard to find. It is over near the epsco building. They sell small individual pictures and there's always a big line for table. However if you want a salad or anything else you are out...of luck as Pizza is it.More

It's the only thing on the menu. And it is just so good! Small pizzas mean you can have your own personal pie and take some home for a snack. Prices are incredibly reasonable. The decor is late 50 's and I love it. Nothing...fancy here but great Pizza and a cold beer are just the perfect combo.More

Ok, I understand this place has been around forever and a lot of people seem to be blinded by their nostalgia when it comes to the pizza. Yes, the pizzas are cheap but that's because they are small bar-sized pizzas, I can eat 2 of...them any day of the week. I too heard the hype about riverview when I came to this area, and was expecting the pizza to be outstanding, and it just isn't. It's not even close. It's average bar pizza, I can name you 5 places on the south shore that are much better tasting. If I wanted old school decor, I'll go to my grandmother's house. If I want cheap beer I'll buy a case of Busch Light. If I want truly outstanding pizza, I won't go here...More

Was was the local place to go for pizza. VERY disappointing...while very cheap, pizza is bland and place hasn't been updated since the 1970s. Extremely noisy (with kids literally running around the place)! Waitress served us as if she couldn't care less if we there...even...the soda was flat! I will NOT be back (they couldn't pay ME to eat there again)!More

We have been coming here for over 25 years. What you need to know is that this is not gourmet pizza but a style of individual pizzas that are tasty and inexpensive. Plain is $6.50, toppings like 50 cents each. Beers are 3 bucks or...so. They do an incredible take-out business as noted by another diner. Hopefully, this was a one time issue. Great pizza with a 60'sor 70's kind of atmosphere.More

Been to Riverview for years. Been recently sold to children of the original owner. We were seated gave our order, and I noticed only orders coming out were take outs, boxes and boxes for 45 minutes. No one seated in the restaurant was served. They...only catered to call ins. I approached the new owner and told him what I observed. No apology, so I was right when I told him that they were doing call ins and leaving seated customers to wait. We had to box our pizza when it was finally done. We waited an hour! A caring owner would have offered a free pizza or apology. Would have not happened if original owner, the father were there. Very disappointing. No way to run an established business.More

Not sure! Their menu is very simple and we have only one veggie option, so I have not really focused so minutely.
