Sara was a stellar server! The Negroni was awesome, well made! The Piano player was skilled, had a good voice, and made the otherwise "dated" atmosphere enjoyable! The food was average...frozen shrimp not well thawed for the shrimp cocktail, the beet salad was very good...after that, uninspiring at best.

We had the breakfast buffet at the Riverside Grill on the morning of 1/16/17. The buffet was great but this review is more specifically in recognition of the staff. This lovely bunch of ladies brings something extra to the table (no pun) . They convey a rare warmth and friendliness that does not seem contrived. Their demeanors were marked by... More

Great ending to our stay at Riverside Hotel. Great variety of food. Omelettes were excellent. Great quality food in the buffet. The kids said the hot chocolate was the best they have had. Lishu and the entire serving staff were very kind and friendly. Thank you!

The weekend buffet has more than you could every want. The regular daily breakfast buffet was outstanding - so many fresh items.

Fast service and my daughter and I enjoyed the food. It wasn't too expensive as far as hotel restaurants go. Super convenient as we were staying at the hotel. I would go there again. Also the morning breakfast buffet was superb!

It is always a pleasure to visit here. The first time we went this year Sarah was so kind and understanding. The person I was with has pretty serious stomach issues from a surgery. Sarah made sure to double check and explained to the chef our situation and we were able to both eat out instead of just me. It... More

Spaghetti squash? Perfect. Local wine list? Yep! And a super comfortable, enticing atmosphere. Cindy at the bar knew everything I needed to know about the wine and when Ren, the cook wasn't sure about the sauce made earlier that day; he called the other chef to check the ingredients. Are you kidding!?! Fantastic. Prefect for business and pleasure both. Thank... More
