Had not been to town for 30 years, grew up in Riverside.
We went there for a lunch in Sept 2015 while back for a visit. What the heck has happened , run down , washrooms in disrepair, only a few lights on for mainly the workers, canned products being used. We ate most of what was brought out after being doctored up at the table. I got exactly what I told the waitress I didnt want. We finished in a hurry and left. Sorry the guy on TV show that saves restaurants , he should visit really soon.
We will not be going back at all.
Food came out hot and as expected for prepackaged deep fried wings and fries but the service was slow considering the restaurant was half empty, waitress was inattentive and more concerned about talking to other staff. Overall experience is that is that it was overpriced for frozen food and service was poor at best.
Twice a year for the past eight years, our hockey team has celebrated xmas and end of season at Riverside. Without exception, the food and service has been excellent. We look forward to enjoying many future celebrations at Riverside Tavern.
are you f***ing kidding me, the place is full of characters and great pizza and amazing sauce, the owner just died of cancer and was a hell of a guy. your four year old will be more scarred by your parenting than by revisiting this awesome landmark of Riverside. Peace out.
I enjoy going to the Riverside Tavern weekly I enjoy the food and waitstaff, the food is always fresh and hot and always served with a smile. As for all the people that have nothing good to say really need to look at there own life cause clearly they do not have one. Thumbs up to Riverside Tavern :)
This place is horrible. The owners broke into a fight and were swearing (f-bombs) in front of our 4 year old. When we tried to speak with him, he called us names and ran off. I would never set foot in this filthy dive again.
This place is horrible - Stay Away! We brought our 4 year old for pizza and one of the owners started swearing loudly at one of the workers behind the bar as we were paying. When we tried to get his attention to let him know there were children present, he called us names and continued to drop f-bombs. He left without apologizing and now our child has nightmares over this. I would never set foot in this filthy place again. My guess is that it will be out of business soon.
