I never go to Boonville without having breakfast at the Riverside...a friendly restaurant with great country cooking. Also, be sure to look at the side of the building because there is a beautiful mural that you will want to take a photo of. I love this restaurant and you will too. I'll be back in March when I come for... More

We love to have breakfast at this restaurant the cooks really can cook breakfast. I can't recommend anything but the breakfast as we have tried the lunch and were not impressed.

This is a classic diner with all the standard American fare you would expect, from burgers to soup to bourbon chicken. The burger and fries were great as was most dishes. It isn't fancy food but that is exactly what I wanted and got for a good price. The best dishes were the pies available for dessert. Our family tried... More

Stopped in for Lunch and had a hit-and-miss experience. One meal was as expected, one was ok - nothings great and one was very poor. Do not bother ordering the steak; poor cut of meat and not well prepared. The kids meal was typical; nothing special. We came back for Breakfast (because they were open early and could seat a...

Food was okay. Not much variety for sides. Lots of fried foods. Cool pictures on walls. Wait staff was friendly. Tables, chairs and booths had seen better days.

We ate here twice, breakfast and lunch. The best tuna melt I've had in years. Save room for a slice of Coconut pie! It's excellent.

Was a very nice local place in town. Staff friendly prices reasonable. Good hot food nothing fancy but just what an out of town traveler enjoys. Give it a try you will like it.

Ate breakfast there two mornings in a row. Food was excellent. I'm a country boy, so this was just the type of diner that fits me like a glove. Coffee was good and my cup was never empty. Good, down home food. Also, the tables and chairs were just fine, nothing second rate here. I WILL be back when in... More

The dining room is fitted with second rate tables and chairs! Waitstaff and food are good! Definitely could change a lot of things!
