“Great food harborside at Riverside”
Reviewed November 18, 2012

We had lunch today at Riverside Cafe based on Trip Advisor reviews. Conclusion: Very nice experience. We both had the Greek lemon chicken soup ... talk about a "comfort soup." It was delicious. I had the gyros and was pleased; my husband had one of his favorites: liver and onions. I didn't think he could eat it all but he did indeed "eat the whole thing." He said it was prepared perfectly (I never fix it so he was in his glory). We ate outside enjoying harbor view. I do wish, however, that smoking would not be allowed.

“Great food; great prices”
Reviewed November 15, 2012

Found this little restaurant by accident but it was a lucky one. Very casual but nice, varied menu and very affordable. We will definitely go back.

“Gyro sandwich/wrap”
Reviewed October 19, 2012

This has been one of my favorite places to stop and eat when coming in from the airport to Anna Maria Island. The gyro sandwich/wrap is outstanding, the service is great and the prices are reasonable and on water granted not the ocean but a beautiful setting.

“Always good food here.”
Reviewed October 5, 2012

Have only been there a few times but it was always good. Many people I know who go there on a regular basis only have good things to say about this restaurant.
