    I made reservations a week in advance and received several updates about the reservation then I get to the restaurant and they had no record of my reservation. Same thing happened last year when used your incompetent website for to make birthday reservations for my wife at Lucky Finn. Again, I had several notices of the upcoming reservation only to find the restaurant closed. I will never use your worthless website again.

    Buffet was great! We checked in with reservations for one Senior and 3 Adult regular priced buffets, but were charged 4 full priced buffets. Sadly the server did nothing and did not adjust the bill. Riverside Hotel should not offer $4 senior discounts unless the servers know how to ring in correctly.

    We were a party of 8 with all different food restrictions, everything from gluten free to pescatarian, Riverside Grill had everyone covered. We all enjoyed our meals, we were there on a Friday night and the live music was lovely. I will say we were nervous when we pulled up and found the restaurant was in a hotel but we had nothing to worry about, the food and service were good and the restaurant was lively and fun. Great night all around.

    Good food, not many choices. Really slow service (food came quick but couldn’t get a refill on water) even though we were the only ones in the restaurant. Went over to the other side to listen to music and was hassled about not ordering drinks. No view of the River, even though the restaurants name would state otherwise.

    It was a last minute Mother’s Day dinner reservation. We got there a little early but they seated us and service was attentive. Considering how busy they were it was an overall great experience.

    The food was well below average. Old and stale. Very tasteless and rubbery. the selection was minimal. The bloody mary's were harsh and tasted like some type of cleaning agent. The only saving grace was the omelet bar, which of course you select how it is to made.

    We had reservations for Mother’s Day. Hostess was very rude. We were seated 20 minutes late, then took another 20 minutes to get silverware. Coffee we ordered came after meal was nearly finished. Will not be back.

    One of the best happy hours in town. 3-6pm and the food is awesome. Please consider getting a better beer selection. That’s the common thread w our friends who love going there and the Sapphire Room for music. Love the place but the beer, in particular IPA, selection is terrible. One IPA and it’s a local (which is great) but a potato IPA.

    Friench fries with the burger were dissapointing. Other entree was the meat loaf which was very good but a HUGE platter of food. the whole plate was more than I would eat in a day. Price however was ok at $18. Wish they had a $12 plate. Yes we'll go back again, in front of a Sapphire Room event.

    The wait staff was great but the food tasted and looked like a Swanson’s TV dinner. Turkey roll and mashed potatoes without gravy weren’t worth $40. I had overcooked, dry prime rib that could have been left over from the hotels last convention. Our food server was hilarious so we left smiling but won’t be back next year.

    Overall it wasn't bad, but I was not impressed with the service, and the food was not deserving to be priced at $40 a plate. I waited 20 just to get a glass of champagne. some of the vegetables were not pleasant, and creamed spinach had curdled a bit. The scalloped potatoes were the best. Would have liked some stuffing. The ham was nice, but I had one whole piece that was just fat and only good to take home to the dogs. The kids has weak Shirley Temples. Kind of disappointed for our Thanksgiving dinner.

    Thanksgiving day was fun. You got to choose an app, and entree, and a dessert for $40. $30 for seniors. I got the Turkey entree and it came with everything you’d want, and basically was two meals. Turkey, potatoes, stuffing, Mac and cheese, Brussel sprouts, hash, rolls…I got pumpkin mousse for dessert.

    Went to dine there for Thanksgiving. The food was about the worst I’ve ever had…cold…..dry…..tasteless…..even had to send one plate back because it looked like it was plated 3 days ago. Service was subpar……ambiance was very nice…….decor was nice…..HIGHLY OVERPRICED for the quality of food received. If it weren’t a special occasion, we would have refused the food and left…..it was that bad. I am NEVER one to leave a negative review….I just keep my mouth shut…..however……this was bad enough it could not go unnoticed.

    The quality of food was substandard for The Riverside weekend brunch. I've been to the weekend brunch many times over many years and this is the first time I could say we would have had better quality at Golden Corral, which is a lot less per person. I'm very empathic for the quality of the food at The Riverside due to current supply chain issues and will return at some date in the future and hope it is again an experience I can recommend to others. Please note that the wait staff was outstanding!
