We arrived on Sat @ 6:45 with a party of 5, thinking there would be a wait. There was, but only about 20 mins. We were seated, ordered drinks and an appetizer and that's when things went south. It took about 25 mins for the appetizer to arrive and dinner arrived 1 hour and 20 mins later. The fried seafood platters were good & plenty but the broiled grouper was over cooked and the Parmesan mashed potatoes were tepid at best
The server was gracious and sincere and explained that there were issues in the kitchen. She did her best to manage the things she could control.

Came to this area for wife and friend to go swimming with the manatees, so needed to eat and nice area, ordered fish special lunch basket, it's a white fish, that's ok , food was pretty bland tasting nothing to write home about, as this is a tourist area, great place, things to do, don't get me wrong I would eat there again, over price for what you got, and it is the only one around that I saw,oh you can look out and see monkey island with real monkey s,

First off you sit by the water watch all kinds of cool wildlife pass, there are monkeys on a decorated island that you watch, river wildlife monkeys on an island what more can you ask for?
Then you get served this amazing trash can lid piled high with crabs, crawfish, corn, potatoes and hush puppies! The servers are so friendly, three different one stopped by to check on us. The server suggests home made key lime pie after dinner, I am so stuffed but it sounds so good, and it was! Awesome place will go back as often as my schedule allows which will hopefully be ALOT!

Whenever we want to relax, and know we will have a good time, with great food, and a fantastic view, we come to the Riverside Crab House.
We start with drinks outside up on their deck. Week ends there is entertainment. The view isspectacular. Watching the boats go by, Scallopers cleaning their catch, Pelican, and other birds. Also....Monkey Island!
We always get the Seafood Fetuccine for two. So much, and soooooo good! Doggie Bag! :o)
A must stop, if in the Homosassa area.
