I had the Flounder. It was a full flounder that covered the whole plate. Very good. Staff very friendly.

First time to the all-new Riverfront in Abbeville. What a wonderful treat! The place is beautiful, the food and service were terrific. Casual atmosphere, great bar was terrific for drinks and appetizers. We just loved the place and will be back soon! Highly recommended!

the new location is horrible. Not much comes with the food. Manager and owners are rude and call customers liars. My dad got the seafood platter and it barely came with anything on it.

River Front is new, replacing the original that burned recently. It is busy, and apparently well regarded locally. Each of our party of six was pleased with the food, although some kitchen snags slowed our service. Unfortunately, the acoustics are such that conversation was virtually impossible. Taste, not sound, should be the most memorable aspect of a meal. At River... More

Had a late supper at the River Front. I had the shrimp and grits and the golfer had the half oysters-half shrimp platter. Best shrimp we've had on the Gulf coast, and the golfer said the oysters were perfect. Beautiful restaurant, deft service, and food we'd come back for--many times.

HOW could they make it better!! The appetizers are so awesome. Try the crab cakes and crab dip!! The new alcohol drinks are so good. I wish they still had the crabmeat au gratin on the menu but there are so many great choices so it is still good. If you miss going to this restaurant, you have missed too... More

Went to their new restaurant after the old location was torn down due to a fire. Atmosphere is amazing and the food and drinks were as good as ever. It is amazing what the owners and their crew have been able to pull off with this new location.

Really enjoyed our meals; it was a great time. A beautiful new building, attentive wait staff, fresh seafood, good cocktails, and non-city prices. Tonight the special was steak, I wish they would serve fresh bread with beef.

Riverfront has finally moved to the new restaurant on HWY 82. Excellent food and a wide variety to choose from. I like seafood so this is where you should for a delicious meal. Friendly servers always checking to see if you need anything
