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...

Absolutely amazing food and super sweet staff. Only downside is you must have a reservation on weekends during the high season or you will not be getting a table. LOVE LOVE LOVE the Lobster Ravioli <3

In Swansboro for the evening and went here on a recommendation. It was fabulous. And Erin was a great waitress, very knowledgeable about the menu and she made some great suggestions. If you are in the area, I highly recommend eating here.

Was unable to get in another restaurant and wanted ti try Riverside. Was not crowded and able to seat 7 quickly. Everything from service to food was excellent. Other reviews had similar responses. I am glad the other restaurant was unable to seat us. This was the best dinner we had all week. Would return to the area just to... More
