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.

The cod fish and chips was 80%breading, not acceptable. Manhattan was supposed to be Pendalton but wasn't. We showed up with reservations for two and had four, was handled graciously. All in all we had a nice evening

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.

The baby back ribs were very tough. Rack of lamb looked good, but was overdone. the manager immediately removed the ribs from the bill, and I've had better food here before, so I'll be back.

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

Food was cold and tasteless. Service - not so good. We waited a long time to get our food. When it arrived it was cold. When I sent it back, half was hot but the potatoes where still cold. The vegetables were watery and everything was really tasteless. It was nice to look at the river but that’s the only positive we experienced.

I love the view of the river, but it always takes forever to get your food. They were out of several items and everyone at the table was almost finished with their food by the time I got my plate. The server told me the kitchen messed up my order and it would be a few minutes until I got my plate when she dropped off everyone else's. About five minutes later she came back and said they messed it up again and it would be a bit more time. Tasted good when I got it though.

Unfortunately, my family and I went here for Father's Day yesterday. The reservation started off with a rude host who seemed put out of his way that we showed up and had to be sat (again.. had a reservation). There were plenty of tables, so not sure what the attitude was about. We asked to be sat outside, he wasn't even able to say "right this way", he took us to a table outside, set the menus down in a pile and walked away with no further communication (IE.. enjoy your meal, your server will be right with you...)

After about 5 minutes, a lady dropped off waters. Wasn't our server.

A short time after that, our server came by. She was very nice and a pleasure. Wish I remembered her name.

CONS: My water glass did go empty for most of my meal. When our food came out, the 3 women at the table got their food, while the 2 men (Father's) did not. Us women were about halfway done with our meal before they even got their food. For it to then come out wrong. The eggs were not even cooked on one plate (the whites were runny still...). The other Father ordered the brunch chicken fried steak, down to the type of eggs he wanted... and his came out without eggs and instead a side of half cooked veggies and french fries???

My omelet was less than ideal, but not the worst thing I've ever had. The mimosas were a complete rip-off. Wish I had seen the price before I ordered.

Less than ideal experience here.

The main attraction is the view. The menu is limited but adequate. If I had one recommendation for Rivershore Bar & Grill it would be to change their chairs. They are SO LOUD when moved across the wood floor and the acoustics there are not helping. The wait staff is fine but they were very busy and food took a very long time to come out. We'll probably be back since there aren't many other choices in the area.

Broad based menu. Service was ok but nothing to brag about. The food items we had were uninspired, lacked imagination. Dessert display plate looked like it had been sitting there all week and was unappetizing, little variety, just cake. We won’t be going back.

Have never been to this part of town before but saw great reviews online so booked a reservation.
Family was in town visiting from out of state and we all went here for dinner. It was delicious! I was a little hesitant to order the steak special because I figured it wouldn’t be as good of quality given it was a 3 course special and such a low price. I was wrong! The seasoning was GREAT the cut of meat was tender and the veggies were delicious as well! I’d make the drive to come back here!

Lovely out door seating, but it was buffet/shortened menu for Mother’s Day. Will probably go back again on a non holiday. Very lovely and polite wait staff, although they were a bit frantic, probably just due to the holiday.
