After a previously mediocore experience, my friends & I decided to give the Riverstone another try for dinner on a Saturday night. We were seated quickly even though we did not have a reservation. Our server was Tyler, who was very friendly, funny, courteous, knowledgeable,...More

We are Man vs. Food fans, and wanted to check out a place that Adam visited. It's quaint and dated, but decor doesn't matter to us. The homemade chips and burgers were really delicious, but service was a little slow. Everything is cooked to order,...More

Ordered broiled fish..soggy, tasteless and appeared to have been frozen, not fresh. The New England clam chowder was excessively salty, probably to mask lack of flavor. The peanut/brownie dessert was terrible and only ate a few bites. This restaurant is highly overrated and overpriced and...More

I'm sorry to hear you didn't enjoy your time with us. I can assure you we buy fresh fish for our fish frys and broiled dinners, never frozen. As for the rest, that's a taste preference, during lent we exclude bacon from the chowder recipe...More
