Keep going back to Riverside Cafe. Fresh food with open setting across from the ferry. Large windows and outside seating. Service was great and menu great with beer and wine. Next time I won't try anywhere else. Also deserts are excellent.

Particularly after a long, cold, exhausting day on Cumber Island. Right across from the ferry, easy walk-in and great food with fast friendly service. Definitely will come back next time we are in town!

Perfect location. Seating indoors or out. I ordered the crab cake Greek salad. Very good and my husband ordered the cod fish and chips for lunch. Service was excellent. Food was hot and received fairly quickly. Will come again.

Great atmosphere, awesome, friendly server and the food was phenomenal! I had the Cajun chicken sandwich with fries. The portions are generous and the food is cooked fresh. Don't forget to peak at their dessert options; you will not be disappointed! The key lime pie is fresh and light on the pallet. The napoleon cake was so good my dad... More

I had a hard time rating this place. The decor is nonexistent. The Greek inspired entrees are very good but way too expensive. The desserts are excellent. So it's 2 for the decor, 3 for the food and 5 for the desserts which made for an overall 3+.

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.
