We ate here a few years back, and remembered having an excellent meal. With that in mind, we went back during this year's vacation. Perhaps it was just a fluke, but our experience was not as good as we remembered the last time. Crab dip appetizer was good, the muffins that come with the salads are great, but our grouper entrees were just ok. So far this week it was our third dinner out, and I'd rank it our least favorite so far. Oddly enough it was our most expensive. The wait staff and who I assume is the owner or manager were very friendly and provided good service, but due to the average taste of the majority of the meal, we won't be going back on future vacations.

The best seafood I have ever eaten! They use local seafood whenever possible and cook it the way it's meant to be. I wish I had been going here from the start!

Delicious food, although a little pricey. Food is consistently good, as is the service. Can be noisy, but is a popular restaurant.

We were referred to Riverside Steak & Seafood by a local realty company as a venue for a wedding reception. I called several weeks ago and spoke with John about our party of nearly 40. He set up the entire upstairs for us and even came in an hour early to accommodate us. The food was excellent, the service was exceptional and the atmosphere was perfect for our large group! Tim was awesome and all of the waitresses did an outstanding job!

Thank all of you for making our son and daughter-in-law's reception perfect! Hope to make it back to Emerald Isle again so we can come back!
