Our second visit here was as good as the first.
Love the extended happy hour, reasonable prices, good service, and a great location.
While the special grouper bites appetizer were sort of bland, our seafood entrees was excellent and more than enough to eat.
Our waitress Taylor was quietly efficient.
We'll be back when we return in January.

Someone recommended this place so we are always game for NEW. We reviewed the menu online and when I saw they served liver and onions I was ready within seconds to go; I know that L&O isn't a favorite of a lot of people but I love it. A quick 15-20 minute drive and we were there and sat outside even though it was a bit crisp outside. The L&O was great, partner had the rib & shrimp special and loved that also. Our server was on top of her game and we never needed for anything. We can't wait to go back when we return to FL.

Wonderful Crab Quiche with fresh fruit! We have been going here for quite some time and have ALWAYS had consistent service and tasty food and great prices. They do have Greek choices also and flavored coffee creamers with a great cup of coffee!!

Riverside Cafe has a wide variety on their menu. Reasonably priced for locals and tourists. Staff is nice and helpful. View of the marina is beautiful in the evening. You will be pleasantly entertained by a guitarist during you dining experience.

I highly recommend this eatery!!

Ate lunch here in August with my husband and a friend. We had delicious grouper sandwiches and French fries and cole slaw! My friend enjoyed her salad and some sort of seafood medley! Our waitress was very friendly and attentive and knowledgeable about the menu. It seems to be a locals place with lots of people who return here frequently and are well-known by the servers! And that fact speaks well for the restaurant!
