The food here is very affordable, and delicious! We had the all you can eat fish and chips for 9 dollars. The fish was perfectly battered, and our waitress Lori was amazing. She even gave us a special sauce that the chef makes in house. The shrimp in garlic is fantastic, and very high quality shrimp. The cesar salad was... More

Stopped at the Riverside Crab House on Wednesday for dinner. Live music and Monkey's on the island outside the restaurant greeted us. Server told it was steak night. Being from Northern Illinois we were looking for sea food but a 10 oz steak with corn on the cob and baby reds for under 15.00 was interesting. When we walked in... More

Excellent food, excellent atmosphere! Our waitress, Kim, was the best! She made us feel like family and made excellent recommendation on food and libations. Meals are well worth the money but aren't overpriced.

As a family of 6 we went here for lunch. We were seated fairly quick. Our table was in a back room with a nice view of the monkeys. We ordered one appetizer of gator bites. They were average, but the sauce it came with was out of this world. Great. Our sandwiches took a very long time to arrive... More

You can sit on the upper deck and overlook the Monkey Island. Unfortunately the trees over the dining area are filled with birds who defecate all over the tables, food, and patrons. So while the food was good it was best to eat very quickly!

We stopped here for lunch between boat tours. We when we sat down around 11:30 and the restaurant was fairly empty. We got a good seat with a view of the river and monkey island. The food took a very long time (more than 30 minutes I think) and we were told it was because someone ordered a grilled chicken... More

My suggestion if you want to see the monkeys - visit the gift shop on the lower level and take photos from there. Possibly buy a cute trinket. Eat elsewhere. We were very disappointed in our visit for lunch. The service was horribly slow, although it was not packed while we were there. People who arrived after us received their... More

I only ordered appetizers, a cocktail, and a draft, but the food hit the spot, our server was very friendly, and the atmosphere was great. This place is right on the river, so there are great views, but bring bug spray if you choose to eat outside. There is seating inside also with plenty of windows. I visited on a... More
