Great food, Wait staff. We have been going by this place for years and never stopped. Boy what a mistake. We stopped in for our anniversary dinner and had the best waiter that was always checking on us and giving us tips when we asked about the menu. We had the Filet's and oh so tender and cooked just right.... More

I was looking for a good place to take my wife for some good seafood. Read the reviews of Riverside, and it did not disappoint. Many reviewers raved about the scallop nachos. They are something to rave about. Delicious. Both my wife and I had seafood dishes. Both were cooked perfectly and we're delicious. We'll definitely go back.

I was with a party of 8 and everyone got something different. There was only positive raves from all during the entire feast. The service was outstanding - especially for Swansboro where making people wait for their food is a local art and tradition. If you are lucky enough to hit a night when the "Carpetbagger" is on the Nightly... More

I love the grouper any way they make it but the creamy dish with andouille sausage is killer. They carpet bagger which is a tenderloin of beef with flash... More

Took my son and some of his friends and we all had an amazing dinner. Service was wonderful and so friendly. Worth the 18 min drive from base and the short wait. Muffin with salad was heaven. Salad was great! No icebergs cheap stuff. Crab dip was amazing and great for the table. They made shrimp scampi special for me.... More

This has become one of our very favorite restaurants. We recently went to celebrate my husbands birthday. We were seated upstairs which was very nice for a party of twelve. Timmy did a fantastic job as our waiter. We never had to wait long for anything, he was even thoughtful enough to be sure all the dinners for the kids... More
