Nice and friendly. Stopped in for dinner and beer last week. The food was good, I had a tuna steak and it seemed fresh and was prepared nicely. Not much of a beer selection only 3 on tap, but more bottles. The staff was great and friendly. Seemed like a family run business. Lots of locals, but I did. It... More

Returned after having visited two years ago. The whole vibe changed for the better. Much friendlier service. The food's pretty good. I enjoyed the chicken philly sub.

After driving through wicked thunder and rain storms, we finally made it to our destination late at night. We were hungry and stopped by the Riverside Pub and Grill. It was late and they were getting ready to close but the bartender was able to get us a warm bowl of soup. My husband had crab soup which he's had... More

I came here with a group of 12. Our drinks came quick, but our food to almost an hour after ordering. My burger had obviously been sitting on the grill "warming" until it was dry and overcooked. My drink was pty for a while before a refill was brought. It was a Sunday evening and there was only one other... More

Tucked away but do not underestimate the awesome environment and food! Staff is great, food is fresh and delicious. Be sure to visit for a great meal or to hang out and enjoy a beverage. Met the owner on the way out, and it's family owned. Great place!

The food at Riverside is really good and staff is very friendly. Service is top notch. We were approached by the wait-staff immediately and were able to get beer orders in quickly. I had the bacon/spinach salad. My only downgrade is that the beer list is somewhat limited. I'd like to see more Maryland/Pennsylvania craft beers on the list.

Staff was super nice. Food was ready quickly. There was something strange about the taste of the pizza cheese...definitely edible but something uncommon.

Thank Kim L
