This is an authentic Czech restaurant. Great food properly prepared in the old world style. Portions are generous and full course presented. Breaded pork tenderloin is personal favorite with roast pork a close second. Enjoy.

Hard to find parking, but large inside. Excellent and prompt service. Great European food (try their wienerschnitzel). They are European traditional in that they even include dessert with your meal. Also have a great selection of Slovak beers.

A delicious Bohemian style restaurant with the traditional setting of a supper club. Many types of traditional and authentic dishes with a full bar as well. The food is excellent. Portions are more than ample and most will need to take some home for later....More

Riverside Restaurant is a family-owned business that has both dine-in and carry-out orders. Their soups are great and food is excellent.

Probably would be best to give them a call, they have said they only do reservations for larger groups but I am not aware what the threshold is
