The food was the best we encountered during our 4 day stay in St Mary's. THe wine was excellent as well. Great things coming from this kitchen. We certainly wished they could turn the lights down a bit. It was very bright and very loud. The talent in the kitchen deserves a better atmosphere in the dining room . Service... More

I have had lunch on more than one occasion at the restaurant and I have also ordered meals 'take-out'; the quality of the food is good to very good, especially the salads. They do have a meeting room separate from the main dining areas. Pricing is reasonable; however, expect to feel a bit pressured to tip even for 'carry out'... More

After a full day at Cumberland Island, my wife and I needed some dinner. Right across from the dock was the Riverside Cafe. The menu included many Greek items but being in a sea town I chose fish and chips, my wife did have grilled chicken pita with Greek dressing. Both were very good. For dessert we couldn't resist the... More

The waitress was remarkably attentive, friendly, and polite!!! Food was just okay -- bland for a Greek diner.

Traditional Greek dinner offerings with delightful French desserts. Reasonably priced. We were there mid week so it was quiet and not a lot of atmosphere, but food was decent and service good.

This restaurant was recommended to us by someone we met on the ferry from Cumberland Island. The gentleman had said his gyro was good. We normally love authentic cuisine from other countries, so we decided to try two of the Greek items offered on the menu. For my husband, the waiter assured us the stuffed cabbage was as Greek as...

Trip to see St Mary. Stopped for lunch. Fresh food and friendly service. Greek Salad was really good and nice dressing. Recommend the fresh fried cod (fish & chips).

Nicely situated across the street from the riverside park. Pretty views of the river and park. I gave 4 stars for the location and service. If you have a sweet tooth, the pastry/dessert case and selection is outstanding. We shared a piece of their famous coconut cream pie, which was light and flavorful with a nice crisp crust. The food... More

Had a nice shrimp and cod dinner at this place. Nice service and enjoyed the outside dining experience. Service was prompt and food was served as ordered. Seemed a bit pricey for the quantity received but food well prepared and was fresh. Definitely a good place to visit in quaint St. Mary's.

Thank Willx
