Good portions and service. First time easily not the last time. We got there under the wire and they were not rushed with us. "I'll be back"😎

Stopped by for dinner for the first time. Nice local café with good service, reasonable prices and quality fare. Tried their hamburger and meat loaf sandwich. They serve delicious homemade fries.😋 Well worth trying.

This is a great place to go for brunch on a Sunday morning. The food is good and the service is good.

The best way for me to judge a restaurant is to go when they are really busy and today was a perfect day to put that to the test. Easter Sunday for brunch. Our party of 11 showed up a little early for our reservation,...More

This time, I didn't go for the diet food. This time Eggs Benedict. For those that want an adult drink with their late breakfast, one can have a Tropical Mimosa or a Bloody Mary.

In a town filled with predictable chain restaurants, Riverbound is a unique local option. The menu is absolutely enormous, with many brunch options, sandwiches, seafood, pastas, burgers, you name it.
