A fantastic place to go near Uncle Sams boat tours by the river. We got right off the boat and walked right over to Rileys across the street. Great atmosphere/staff and services. My grandmother and I were wowed by everything. Highly recommended.

Here from NH and had a good dinner. The server Cole was very attentive and made our meal fun. The sauce on my chicken parmesan was a bit thick and unappealing. I would definitely give it another shot due to the service we received. Thanks...More

We camp on Welsley Island and after a long week of cooking for everyone, our tradition is breakfast out on our way home. We ate at Riley's because they had free parking for our camper. Their excellent service started in the parking lot. The teenage...More
