We love this place. Service is sometimes slow, but it is because they are usually so busy. The food is good, and I love that they offer a vegetarian version of their philly cheese steak sandwich...it is greasy delicious in a great way. 😂 100% laid back atmosphere...good place to relax and enjoy a leisurely, fun meal.

We stopped there for lunch on the recommendation of a local friend. We had a very nice grouper sandwich and the wait staff was efficient despite the good number of people there. It is a very pleasant place with a view of the water.

Located along the river, it has many tables with water views. The building is a bit worn, but I like dives. Service was slow with just two people serving. Had quite a wait between drinks, food order and delivery, but it wasn't very crowded. I tried the blackened shrimp basket with fires and cole slaw. Fries were hot the shrimp... More

My wife and I rode bicycles down the st marks trail to st marks.. The ride was excellent. We stopped in this restaurant for a drink and lunch. The " fresh" peel and eat shrimp is obviously Chinese shrimp they buy in bulk, defrost and serve at $17 per pound, the fish sandwich you would think would be local and... More

Friends told us about his spot some time ago, so we went with them for lunch. I was expecting a quaint, small place but this place is large. Was told the expansion occurred a couple years ago, almost tripling the square footage. I would classify this place as a bar that serves very good food. We started out with Gumbo,... More

Drove down to St Marks from South Georgia just to visit for the day. Ordered take out consisting of shrimp basket and "grouper" sandwich. Even asked first if they had grouper, paid for grouper and what we got was some awful tasting mullet, fries are not well cooked, cole slaw watery, shrimp was adequate. $31 not well spent. And YES,...

My daughter and I came here for dinner, looking for some fresh seafood. We each ordered the Grouper basket. I asked if it was wild caught. The waitress said it came in fresh frozen... Anyway, the Grouper was pretty much the same as I have had at other restaurants. I didn't really pay attention the menu prices when I ordered.... More

Riverside Cafe is nice and our server was very friendly. We started with the smoked mullet appetizer which was very good. I moved on to the fried oyster dinner, again very good. The wife had the gumbo which was “pretty good”. Nothing was particularly a standout. Everything was solid to return if in little St Mark’s.
