In this day of industrialized food it was a real treat to have real fresh seafood. The taste is incomparable and delicious! Than you - well worth it!

This place is not near the water, but don't be fooled. We dropped by with 11 people and only had to wait 15 minutes for seating. Drinks are great lots of local beers and mixed drinks are plenty. The scallop nachos to start, blew my mind. I had the mahi pasta, just awesome, my wife had she crab soup and... More

Riverside is in an old house and does not have a water view, but the food is exceptional. We had an amazing appetizer of scallops on tostada chips that was a perfect blend of seafood and TexMex. Our entrees were from the standard menu but well prepared and presented. Try something the chef dreams up but they also do an... More

My wife and I were celebrating our 19th anniversary. I went on yelp to find a good resturant in the area.

We got there one... More

I have loved this restaurant for a long time. The quality is consistent which is great Have recommended this place to several of my friends and their experiences are like mine.

A large group of us went to RS&S. We were asked if we had reservations. I had seen no indication of reservations needed on their website and the parking lot was fairly empty. When we told them no they seated us all upstairs in a bar type area. I asked the waiter weather he would recommend the crab cakes or... More

OH.MY.GOODNESS!!! This place was phenomenal from start to finish! My husband made a reservation for us on a Friday night at 6. We actually arrived 20 minutes early and were seated right away. Our server, Rick, was attentive and knowledgeable about the menu. I had seen reviews that the she crab soup was great, so my husband decided to start... More

This is still my no #1 restaurant on the Crystal coast. We had superb meals and a really good waitress, Linda. The food is always hot and excellent. I had oysters one evening and swordfish the second visit. Both meals were awesome! get reservations as this restaurant is busy year round. Can't wait to go back!

we go there as often as we can. we really like what we get, the staff is always making sure that all is well. sometimes it is really busy, but when it is good, who cares, go a little earlier and have a drink up stairs.

Thank Ronnie R
