We sat on the deck at the rear of restaurant and had a terrific Lunch then shared a few drinks . Waiters/waitresses were always making sure you were well looked after. Cost is reasonable for the service and food was very good.

We visited the Riverside on Feb 18, 2017. This place was recommended to us several times before we actually visited. From the outside we just weren't sure it would be for us. It is easy to miss the pub which is quite surprising considering the size of it when you get inside. You do have to take stairs, so be... More

A busy homely pub with hearty food. Pan fried fish and spinach salad a relatively healthy option. Excellent service. Good selection of beer.

We have been here lots of times with friends and family. The last time we were able to sit outside on the deck over looking the river. It felt like being in the country! Great pub food and service.

Yes, it's a local pub and eatery, but considering the options this is the best dinner place in the area. They clearly have everyone in the town's attention. The local food is fish and these guys serve the local fish in the area prepared just like you want it. The staff is amazing, hard working locals who know their business.... More

Friendly staff, very large place, shuffleboard. Good for large groups. Food is okay. Specials each night make the pricing more reasonable than some other pubs in the area. Would be nice if there was more variety of beer and ale on tap - mostly local stuff. If you want a Guinness, you get a can, for example.

Four ladies met for brunch on a Saturday morning. Not one of us received a hot meal. The eggs were cold and rubbery served with cold toast. The haddock tips had been fried twice and were so greasy they were not edible. The chicken wrap had maybe one ounce of processed chicken in it, and it was served with ice... More

We stop by for the exceptional weekly specials and a favorite beverage to sit out on the patio to enjoy the view!
