Cozy restaurant and bar with beautiful Hudson River and mountain views. Family owned and run, Riverview offers up a variety of excellent fare ranging from fresh seafood dishes, to tender steak, and homemade pasta and focaccia. They also sell their seafood in a small store on the side of the restaurant. Wednesday price fixed dinners and deals on take-out pizza... More

I came to Riverview a few weeks ago with a friend after a beautiful day of hiking at nearby Breakneck Ridge and I could not have been more pleased! We sat outside on the picturesque courtyard where we got to eat with a beautiful view of the river and mountains. Really quite a site. Now onto the great food....I ordered... More

My Pomagranit glazed Salmon was delicious and my wife's Papradelli pasta with black olives, tomato and garlic was exquisite. Definitely will dine there again.

The customer service was outstanding! I wanted to try the soup of the day and the waitress immediately asked if I wanted a sample of the curry pumpkin soup. She was so forthcoming! I went with the oysters - small but good, ice cold! and the clams in white wine sauce. Thought this was bland. Most others in my group... More

We planned to eat on Main Street but as usual parking was tight. Had a burger and a pizza which were both quite good. Service was friendly and attentive. Crowded but still comfortable and not noisy. We sat along the window with a beautiful view of the mountains. Wish the menu had more brunch and sandwiches choices. They have a... More

I like the view from the side dinning room. The menu is good and the food is better. Bring your cash as they don't credit cards

the menu is short, they take cash only, and they are located a short walk off the main strip. So much for the "bad things." The good ones: you will get good to excellent dishes (some are truly outstanding, cucumber soup this Summer was to die for) and enjoy them while watching the sunset over the magnificent view of Hudson....

This restaurant has been a local fine dining institution for a very long time-- since 1941, in fact– and if the outside of the building is consequently a little tired looking, the inside is quite fresh. We got a table on the windowed porch and had a view over the parking lot to the Hudson River and Storm King Mountain.... More
