Requested outdoor seating when I made the reservation.
When we arrived at 11:45AM I was told outdoor seating is on a first come basis.
Unfortunately all outdoor tables were full. The ahi salad is terrific.

Really a delightful dining experience eating outside on their deck. Their new lower patio looks nice, too. The landscaping was in tip top shape for April. Enjoyed all their patio planters and flowers.

I have eaten at The Rivershore for over 18 years.

The complaint I had on Easter Lunch was our server for just ok.

She wasn't that friendly and very slow. The restaurant wasn't that busy at all.

I will continue to visit this place. One bad apple won't keep me away.

Cold coffee , luke warm food , questionable service . Not a salt/pepper shaker to be seen. Also sitting outdoors it was chilly , we were seated at a wrought iron table and chairs. BRR they were cold ! No table cloth ,nothing. We had prime rib , the tab was $ 100.00 including tip. I tried supporting the restaurant , but I left feeling taken advantage of. They want/need the revenue , I felt they didn't have standards .

Wanted to take the family out to a nice dinner.. reserved an indoor table for 7pm, arrived and staff had no idea when an indoor table would be available- what was the point of making a reservation? We were offered the patio and took it. Wind picked up quite a bit, we were never offered to move inside once a table became available, one of the servers spilt ketchup on my sons white polo and khaki shorts, spent $110 on prime rib just for it to be overcooked. I’ve been to Rivershore once before and had amazing service and delicious PERFECT food.. but this time they came up short. No one offered anything over the spilt ketchup that ruined my sons clothes. I still left a 20% tip, but I probably won’t be back until this COVID19 stuff is over. As a server myself, I do understand how new protocols can make service less attentive.. but I was overall very disappointed with my experience even though the staff was nice when they did come around.

We ordered the clams appetizer and they were filled with sand. My 31 dollar NY steak was ordered medium and it came well done making it tough. Carrot cake for dessert, would not recommend. Over priced for the quality of the meal. Service was very good.

Very pleasant, not overly crowded, yet busy. Staff didn't push people. We never felt rushed. However, the spacing of the tables and chairs was a bit tight, and both our table and the one nearest us were not level. The interior is a bit dated. I didn't have an issue with it, but my spouse did not like the ambiance at all. The buffet is in a small back area behind the bar, which makes it interesting getting your food when it's busy. The walkway behind the bar stools requires two way traffic, and there really isn't room for people to pass, especially with people returning from the buffet line with plates of food.

Because the food was so good, we will probably return for a regular day meal (such as Monday, which is steak night) but not for another buffet event.

Our first visit was Monday steak night. We upgraded to ribeyes which were perfectly cooked. My spinach artichoke appetizer included with meal was yummy. A brownie with ice cream was part of special. Great value. Our server was excellent. Highly recommend.

As is usually the food and the service is very good with the exception that at the reception was told they didn't have my reservation even though I had a confirmation from OpenTable both from the immediate notice when made and an email. Was told by the receptionist that they could probably still seat me. Reservation for one!!! Have not had this problem before.

Table for 9 not ready yet place wAs near empty. Asked for separate checks and waitress took out orders in groups of 2 yet messed up the tickets. Clam chowder was really thin liquid rather then creamy base. One order was missed by the cook and our friend began eating 10 min after everyone else. One drink did not come out and waitress had to say sorry the bartender is really busy. Always had a good experience when it was just the 2 of us. Will not go again as a larger group. Place is unorganized

The service and food were excellent! The view overlooking the river was a plus!! We sat on the deck and had a very good meal. My husband had the Fish and Chips and I had the Pork Chop. Both were cooked to perfection and served with a very nice presentation. The server was pleasant, cordial and knowledgeable about the menu. Great place to have a wonderful summer dinner.

We enjoyed eating here. It was our first time. The deck is very nice, but it's noisy outside, being very near 2 highways
The view of the river is lovely. The food was good, but the fish and chips, cod, was overcooked, and the battery was thick and quite greasy. The fries and coleslaw were great. One person had surf and turf and said it was excellent. The people were great.

Neat restaurant with a nice river view wasn't very busy when we went but our waitress must have been busy helping a large group that was there is my only guess only saw her 3 times the manager came by and took our plates and refilled my water. Food was good but price was higher then I expected
