The location where Riverside Grill is, has an unfortunate history with previous restaurants. Don't be put off by the connotation. This new restaurant is delightful and needs support...the owner has put his heart into it. Good food and good location.

The setting is beautiful, especially in summer when you can enjoy your lunch, dinner next to the stream with ducks and squirrels running around. Steak, chicken, fish you name it and it turns up done to perfection. Friendly , peaceful atmosphere.
