We eat here 3 -4 times a year. Atmosphere is great and food is always very good! Nice wine list! Never had a bad meal since we've been going here at least 10 plus years.

Ok, so I haven't seen the whole world, I have had a few good cocktails in a few good places, and this has it all - picturesque small northern Michigan town, meandering riverfront location with friendly boaters puttering by, a lazy summer day patio to die for, and a mouthwatering appetizer (and dinner) menu. Have been here dozens of times over the years, and summer vacations and winter holidays are THE times to visit. Locals gather and as the laughter gets louder, everyone seems to join in. We enjoyed a great bottle of wine with the charcuterie platter the other night, served by such a nice waitress who was classic Leland: easy going with a distinctly elegant flair. We sighed as we looked out the front window panes at the snow covered brick walkway and the garland and lights on the white picket fence - it's a classic scene that is a real treat during the holidays if you're lucky enough to spend some time in Leland : )

The Riverside Inn has a history of being an inviting place to spend the evening enjoying good food, and a pleasant view. While we have not eaten there recently it continues to get good local reviews and is difficult to get in without a reservation in the summertime.

First visit to the Riverside and I anm already a huge fan. Small, elegant and tastefully done. Food was excellent - short ribs and lamb shank done to perfection. Service was knowledgeable and efficient. Upscale for a resort area but not out-of-sight. Will definately make this a regular stop when in the area. Even convenient from TC. Spend the day roaming vineyards and finish the evening off with an exquisite white-linen dining experience.

We love the Riverside. The food is always beautifully prepared and delicious. The service is impeccable, the staff obviously carefully trained. Having dinner on the deck in summer is one of our favorite treats!
