Have come here quite a few times with friends. They have an excellent rotating tap list and good food. Be sure to order the ale battered dates as a starter.

Love the variety and quality of the menu. The mixed drinks and beer selection is great. The popcorn made with bacon fat is fantastic. The hamburger is awesome..the menu changes so its always a treat to try new things.

I do not know what is going on at the Salted Pig but our experience yesterday was NOT good. We considered leaving, but decided to stay. Fries and fried hushpuppies were two of the only things we could eat because we are vegetarian. The fries came cold and the second dish was bland. Just awful! The beers and service were... More

A short walk from the courts in downtown Riverview. A great lunch place, relaxing and great food. The menu items are homemade in house with farm to table originality. Some of the best sandwiches in all of Riverside. Don't miss out on their selection of craft beers, they're outstanding!

No reservations taken but pitched up and plenty of room as it's quite a big place. You wouldn't know it's there as front door is solid and you can't see in. Offering something very different from rest of Riverside. Food with bit of a twist. The baked potato starter was delicious and plenty for 2 to share. I then had... More

I don't really like the "gastropub" (one of the ugliest words in the English language), which often translates into "pub with jacked-up prices". That's certainly true here. I had a good burger here (brought me by a friendly server), but for a price more appropriate for Tokyo than Riverside. (N. b. -- onstreet parking only)

All parts of the pig are good, but Bacon is the best! And this place has EVERYTHING Bacon. Yummy!! Definitely have the Bacon Popcorn.

This place has great ambiance, it's fun and relaxed and you're able to hear people that you talk to. The food is delicious but portions are on the small size, especially for the prices.

Have been here a couple of times, with different people. The food is good, but don't expect your normal healthy salad here! Good selection of beers. The only thing I'm not keen on is the actual location. Also be aware there is no daylight as there are no windows so the lighting is low. Good atmosphere, always busy. Little pricey.

This small Gastropub near the various Courthouses in downtown Riverside is my go-to for a quick delicious lunch whenever I am in the area for business or occasionally jury duty. As I am not a beer drinker I am far more interested in the gastro than the pub, but both appear to be up to high standards. I have yet... More
