“We have been almost 100 times!”
Reviewed January 10, 2014

In 30 years my wife and I have been many times and have Never been disappointed. We have a condo on North Topsail Beach across the bridge from Sneads Ferry where the Riverview Cafe has always been. Our big family and many friends are world travellers. So all of us know about quality seafood and top service at a fair price. Danny and is very capable and friendly staff are excellent.
You can't miss when you go there!

“Hidden gem!”
Reviewed December 15, 2013

Well worth the drive. Hot food served HOT; hush puppies delicious. I had broiled fan tail shrimp which were perfectly seasoned. And be sure to save room for desert. Husband & I shared a piece of coconut pie. WOW!

“Not the best”
Reviewed December 12, 2013

We saw all the reviews and thought we just have to try it especially for the seafood. Steamed oysters were not steamed enough and could not get them opened. Seafood platters were ok, but flounder was overcooked and dry. French fries also dry and tasteless. Worst slaw any of us had ever tried. Tough, course and weird taste. Filled up on hush puppies and beer at a high cost. $102.00 for three!

“Mixed Bag”
Reviewed November 30, 2013

I was expecting a bit more towards the top of my seafood dining experience. The good-fried oytsters and scallops.The slaw and hushpuppies .Lemon pie. The average- fries and catfish. Average service. The ugly- tough flounder and shrimp. Upcharge for oysters,flounder,& scallops."heinz" cocktail sauce. I was expecting in-house. .Loud chatter among cook staff/servers and continuous discussion of previous customer note-complaint for manager not yet on premise. Price paid for quantity/quality received. I have only been this disappointed a time or two before with expectations versus actual experience. I may give another shot. It will be a lunch special try to save some value.
