Description: Overlooking the Root River and right next to the Scenic Bike Trail. Because the ambiance is so great this is a very relaxing atmosphere. Riverside provides a full bar menu specializing in our martini's and house in-fused Vodka for our Bloody Mary's. All of our food is house-made and we offer a very diversified menu. Deep fat fried foods are not an option as we choose to stay on the healthy side. When in season we use fresh vegetables from our gardens and locally that are chemical free or organic. There are vegetarian options and of course if you have special needs diet be sure to talk with us as it is easy to prepare something that may not be on the menu.

Very flavorful food, and excellent, friendly staff! Great atmosphere, overlooking the Root River. Patio eating, if you prefer, right next to the river.

Thank Mary T

We visited Lanesboro for an anniversary. A different place was recommended, but we chose this place. The service was very slow and not friendly. It was not that busy at the time. The table was a weird kind of "sticky" like it had not been cleaned well in some time. I had walleye and must say it was probably the worst piece of fish I have ever had. My girlfriend had a burger that seemed like it came from a box out of the freezer of a school cafeteria. I usually do not drink Martini's, but they have a Martini Bar and I figured "when in Rome...." I ordered the same Martini twice and it came garnished two different ways. The only good part was that we got to sit where we asked, right at the edge of the outdoor deck with a nice view.

This restaurant has a great location on the river with a deck out back with a beautiful view. The food is good and the service was great. I have heard they have partially enclosed the deck, but have not been there to see it.

We went there with our kids after a bike ride on the trail. What a great place! Sat on the back deck and were able to see tubers coming down the river. Very nice and shady on a hot day. Great place, little pricey, good was ok but it was the atmosphere that won us over.
