The food is always great. The service and the atmosphere is awesome. We travel 1 hour to eat here and we have never been disappointed. We love the shrimp, whitefish, and the oysters. Doing a great job! Keep up the great work.

The service was great! Our waitress was attentive and very sweet. The food was well prepared and very good! Oh my, make sure to leave room for dessert. Our favorites are the carrot cake and blueberry cake! It was raining so we couldn't sit outside. However, we had a very roomy booth with a big window overlooking the river. It... More

We ordered the Alaskan White Fish and it was excellent. Love sitting on porch and listening to the river as it goes by.

Love Riverfront Seafood, with food this good Kingsport only needs the one. Got to pick their cream corn as a side and save room for a huge slice of blackberry cake. Delicious.

The food is superb. The service is spot on. The place is always spotless. The view of the river and all the wildlife just can't be surpassed. I have dined here many times over the years, and the experience is always consistent.

Simply outstanding meal! We started our meal with a shrimp cocktail, fresh and delicious. I had the blackened red snapper, and some of the best creamed corn in the south. My husband had the combo platter of fish and shrimp that was equally good. Lastly, please have the blackberry cake! It was one of the best deserts we have ever... More

We were traveling across the country, and we were tired of the typical food. After reading several reviews, we were excited to give this place a try, despite the fact that it was a 20 minute drive from our hotel and we had been in the car all day. When we arrived, we were greeted warmly by a man who... More

Prices seem to have really risen and quality has not matched in my opinion. Crab cakes seem light on quality crab. Good selection of beers. Nice view of river.

We've been going to the Riverfront for many years now. It was consistently excellent for many years, but seems headed the wrong direction if our last two visits are the norm. My wife loves the halibut and it's always perfectly prepared, but for $30, it would seem that a side of slaw would be free. Evidently slaw is extra. I... More
