We had seafood, steaks, and lasagna and they were all excellent. The New York Strip was cooked perfectly and the seafood is lightly fried and succulent and the lasagna is like Mom's (if you like lots of cheese) You can't go wrong at Riverside.

Love eating there. We visit Emerald Isle and like to skip over to Swansboro for the food. This restaurant is located in a quaint older two story house. Food is great!

The seafood here is the very best Swansboro has to offer! Amazing grouper and fried oysters. And a wonderfully full plate-worth the money. I LOVE their pumpkin muffins. And the blueberry cheesecake was amazing! I’ll be back!

We east on the deck. Wonderful view of the intercoastal waterway. Food is good but a bit over seasoned. Service is excellent. We will return for the different seasons.

This place is one of those joints where you not only have to wear shoes, but probably ought to wear a collared shirt too. Which probably explains why they don't serve collared greens very often. Seriously though, a reservation is a good idea because the...More

We had reservations at 7. When we arrived at 6:45 we were told we couldn't go to the bar for a drink due to a private party. That was reasonable but then we were told there would be a 40-45 minute wait. Our group of...More

Not 100% positive but I believe there is an upstairs room. Perhaps call the restaurant. The food is worth it.
