Friends invited us to join them @916 Riverside to watch the fireworks we met @8pm. We were a bit apprehensive because of the reviews & the fact that it was an expensive buffet. But it just fine and we really enjoyed ourselves. There was a small salad bar w cornbread muffins & rolls. The rest consisted of a stuffed sole... More

We have been here twice since the son took over the 1st time we ordered prime rib and was brought surf and turf , the bad thing is the wait staff didn't even know what prime rib was or what it looked like. The second time took us 25 min to get our drinks then forgot one. We got our... More

Stoped by on our way home from having dinner elsewhere to have a drink and check out the menu for a future night. The daily specials included .60 wings, so we decided to give them a try. It did take awhile for them to be served, but they were very good, although not as crisp as we requested. We also... More

On June 1st my wife and I took my mother here for dinner. I enjoyed the Haddock Castaways. Old timers will recall this place used to be called Castaways and it was a nice tribute. Very tasty. We dined on the expansive, but sparsely populated deck and enjoyed a nice view of the Oneida River on a picture perfect June... More

Went on a Saturday evening. Very nice waitress. Ordered from the specials menu and everything was delicious. Hope they decide to keep those Truffle fries! I had steak and scallops and they were both cooked wonderfully. The vegetables in the side dish were fresh and not over cooked or mushy! Love that. So many restaurants get that wrong. Had a... More

Had New Year's Eve reservations. Expecting a good time with dinner and music. When we got there found there was an additional per person cover charge which was not mentioned when reservation was made. In addition they tried to put us in a side room, even though we had reservation for main room. We left. In a later conversation with... More

We went to 916 hoping to have a nice dinner with some friends. There was only one other table in the room and service was very very slow. The waitress also had some hygiene issues. The food came and it was the most terrible food I have ever eaten in my life. It would be one thing if it was... More

This was actually for "916", went there for dinner and drinks on a Friday night. Great view on of the Oneida River (right on the river). They had a DJ which was entertaining and did play good music (that was a plus). The outside bar area was good for a "bar atmosphere". The waiter we had was slow to check... More
