“The hostess was phenomenal”

S &J's Riverside Restaurant
Ranked #2 of 2 Restaurants in Galesville
Restaurant details
Reviewed 22 August 2021

We knew we were in for a wait when the parking lot was full on a Sunday afternoon. The hostess did a phenomenal job of communicating with patrons and staff and did have indoor seating available. She was so pleasant, calm, and accommodating which was impressive. We chose to wait for a table overlooking the water on the pier deck. We had the oysters, soft shell crab sandwich, and a crab cake. My only suggestion would be to invest in Heinz ketchup over the generic brand that was served. This is a beautiful place to enjoy being on the water and an orange crush or two. You can also access the restaurant from the water.

Went with some friends on a Tuesday night. Took an hour and a half for get a salad and the chicken on it was so over cooked it wasn’t edible. Although the server was very sweet we had to ask several times just to get water refills. No need to go back.

Called in to make reservations for 15-20. Pre-ordered 4 doz. of steamed crabs for 3 o'clock birthday celebration on a Saturday afternoon. When we arrived the table was ready for us. The service was excellent! We found out after that the waitress was on her 4th day and we gave her a workout. Everything that was ordered from the menu was perfectly prepared, & seasoned well. Special shout out to the cream of crab soup! Real lumps! Very very tasty! and the crabs, (see picture) not the local MD blue crabs but they were # 1's and were heavy, meaty and very good! Some of the locals in the bar area seemed to be extremely curious about us! Some even extended a friendly hello and commented on how well mannered our kids were!
All in all it was a fantastic dining experience. they allowed us to bring our own cake and even brought it out singing happy birthday with candles lit. I can't wait to come back when MD crabs are in season!

My darling and I had the great fortune to experience dining at Stan & Joe's Riverside Restaurant. We both had the crabcake sandwiches, my darling got her broiled, I got my fried. Not only were delicious they were huge. She got fries and I got onion rigs, which were nice and crisp. Our waitress, Casey, was fabulous. She was johnny on the spot and clued us in on all the specials of the week as will some special events coming up in the near future. We will definitely be back for Lobster Thursday. Can't wait.
