“So Good, I Had to Go Twice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 28, 2014

Was in town for business and was looking for something quick. My friend and I stumbled across this place and what a great decision. We sat at the bar, has some very fine suds from their brewery, and ate one of the best hamburgers I have had in a very long time.

Bar staff was great, the atmosphere was clean, classy, and it was just as good the next night.

“Great atmosphere ... food okay”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2014

We have gone to this restaurant four times since it recently opened. Twice as a couple and twice with friends. It is a fun, festive, noisy, bright place ... bags of peanuts are brought to your table ... you throw the shells on the floor ... who wouldn't love that?
I just can't get excited about the menu ... have had the cobb salad, the half sandwich and bowl of soup twice, and a hamburger ...and they were all decent, but nothing to write home about. So I think the whole appeal is the fun factor ... which isn't a bad thing.
One thing that can get tedious: the waitstaff is not assigned to any particular table, so any one of them can take your order, deliver your order, check on your order ... etc. Because they are so conscientious about checking on tables, you can have 7 or 8 different people asking you, "How is everything?" "Is everything okay?" " How is it going?" etc. etc.
After answering three or four times, you want to wave your napkin in defeat! "Just let me eat, please!"
Focus on the fun ... and Riverside has sorely needed a restaurant like this for some time ... especially in the downtown area.

“GUTBUSTER!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2014

Come here with a big appetite, someone who loves to share or enjoy lots of leftovers! Huge portions...huge flavor! Burgers, sandwiches, salads and a dinner menu....very attentive wait staff. They give you peanuts in the shell when you first walk in but save your appetite for the meal! Great place to stop in for something casual or you want a drink. Sports pub vibe with two bars located on each end of the restaurant. Have tried a couple of the sandwiches...burger...excellent! Can't go wrong with a stop here...best value for the price!

“Love this place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2014

Just happen to be driving through the neighborhood and saw this place. Glad we stopped in! Great atmosphere, great food, great service!! Peanut shells on the floor, football game on the TVs, ice cold mugs of beer . . . . It was all great. I ordered the tequila lime shrimp salad with avocado, roasted corn and tortilla strips and it was delicious. Not only that but it was huge! Almost enough for two people to share. I say almost because I was really hungry and I happened to eat all of mine. It's not on the cheap side though. For two people, including one very large beer and tip, it was about $50. As far as I'm concerned, it was well worth it! Will definitely be going back.

“HUGE MEALS”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 12, 2013

My first visit. What a treat. Very attentive waitstaff. Very comfortable setting with open beam ceilings, lots of sport TVs and friendly people. Fresh peanut in a bag on arrival. Large drinks for a low price. Extensive menu with a variety of dishes.

We ordered sandwich meals and boy, were they meals. Too much to finish. Had to have a doggie bag.

This is a fun place suitable for the whole family.
