I was with a party of 8 and everyone got something different. There was only positive raves from all during the entire feast. The service was outstanding - especially for Swansboro where making people wait for their food is a local art and tradition. If you are lucky enough to hit a night when the "Carpetbagger" is on the Nightly... More

Excellent selection of creative seafood and turf items. We go when we want an excellent meal and they have never failed to delight in the 10 plus years we've been going. I love the grouper any way they make it but the creamy dish with andouille sausage is killer. They carpet bagger which is a tenderloin of beef with flash... More

Took my son and some of his friends and we all had an amazing dinner. Service was wonderful and so friendly. Worth the 18 min drive from base and the short wait. Muffin with salad was heaven. Salad was great! No icebergs cheap stuff. Crab dip was amazing and great for the table. They made shrimp scampi special for me.... More

This has become one of our very favorite restaurants. We recently went to celebrate my husbands birthday. We were seated upstairs which was very nice for a party of twelve. Timmy did a fantastic job as our waiter. We never had to wait long for anything, he was even thoughtful enough to be sure all the dinners for the kids... More

Our special treat to ourselves is eating here. The oysters Rockefeller were awesome. I had filet, hubby had lobster ravioli. We split Mississippi mud pie for dessert. Everything was top knotch as always.

Great steaks and seafood. Always really good service. Full bar and good wines. We eat here on a regular basis and have never had a bad meal. Strongly recommend scallop nachos!

This was a nice place for some fresh seafood or a steak (we some of each). I think it was a bit pricey for what we had but it was tasty. The best part of the meal was the sweet potato muffin. Wish I had just gotten a basket of those and skipped the rest.

After a 6 year hiatus we returned to Riverside last night and we weren't disappointed in either the quality of our dinner choices or the outstanding service provided by our server, Annalee. Each of our dinner choices that included the House Grouper, Fried shrimp platter, Salmon Oscar, and steak were prepared and served with attention to detail and freshness. In... More

We've dined here before and will continue to return -as the food is always above average/excellent. I had the filet-cooked and seasoned perfectly-we happened to come on a night when fresh swordfish was being served as a special and it was also cooked perfectly-to die for :-) I can say it was an enjoyable evening for both of us-be sure...
