There were 8 family members in our party, all in from out of town. When we arrived, our table was ready right on time. The historic house was a lovely setting. Our of our meals were delicous. The lobster ravioli had a gorgous presentation and tasted equally wonderful. The pricing was very fair for all the delicous food and atmosphere. We will definately come back next year!!!

I like the atmosphere at this place but was so disappointed in service and the food. She finally took our orders approximately 25 minutes after she gave us our drinks. Crabcakes were a huge disappointment! The size of a fifty cent piece. Paid 28.00 for my husband's dinner of deep fried oysters and shrimp and it did not even include a small dinner salad. Only thing good was the crab dip and it was so hot it burnt my tongue. My steak was bland and fatty. I'm from Maryland and know seafood the owner of this place and his cooks have not a clue on good seafood. And the fact they claim they have Maryland style crabcakes is a complete insult.Prices are not worth what we got. Will never go back

We love the Riverside and go every summer while vacationing in the area. I always order the grouper and it's great. My husband has tried a variety of dishes there and he has always been happy with the food. The owner and staff are very friendly and the atmosphere is nice and relaxing. The key lime pie is the best!

I have read a lot of reviews that Riverside is "the worst" seafood, steak, clams, etc that some have ever had. Riverside is a wonderful restaurant, located inside a renovated historical home. The atmosphere is perfect (for a first date or anniversary dinner). Actually, I went to Riverside for the first time May 17th 2006 for a first date, and today, May 17th 2009 we are going back, for our 3 year anniversary dinner. We are getting married, 1 month from today, June 19th!! We love Riverside. The owner is wonderfully friendly. If you get lucky to get some of his fresh catch tuna, it is just that!! This is tuna that he went out and caught on his own, usually, that day before dinner is served! They have these amazing muffins that have some apple or something in them, they are really great! The steaks are ok most of the time, their mashed potatoes are amazing. Overall, that place is very good and very nice. Of course, there are going to be unfortunate experiences where perhaps everything isn't up to par, this is the same anywhere. For those of you who had a bad experience, try it again. My fiancee and I LOVE fine dining, we are very cultured and enjoy really good food, of all varieties. Our favorite is Sushi night, but Riverside, is such a special place to us that we only go once a year, on our anniversary. If it wasn't wonderful, we wouldn't return year after year.

I went to Riverside Steak and Seafood and was very disappointed that we were waiting 15 min to get refills. Then we ordered, crab cakes and they had lots of shells in them and were the worst tasting crab cakes I have ever had. The food was pretty bland. I would only recommend this place to those that do not know much about seafood and want to waste a lot of money on poor quality food. Otherwise, save your time and go anywhere else. I am sure anywhere else would taste better.

The first time I went to Riverside was on a 1st date. It didn't work out w/ the guy. However, I've had a love affair w/ Riverside ever since. My favorite is the carpetbagger w/ garlic mashed potatoes. The shrimp were perfectly cooked. The wait staff goes out of there way to make sure you want for nothing. I've even been down on a week night and got the surf & turf, even though they're usually only available on the weekend. My soon to be husband and I love to find a reason to drive from Greensboro to Swansboro. Can't wait to go back!!

A little too pricey for regular eating out, but great atmosphere. Love that its a two story place, all smoking upstairs in the bar which is nice. Baked ziti was good, but the salads are lacking.

I am a marine and about 5 other marines and I took our dates to The Riverside Steak and Seafood.Some of us had steaks that were tasted rubbery and bland,some of us had some crab cakes,clams which was full of shells just like the other reviews stated,the service was very poor, the salad was though the only thing that was good there.All of us were extreml;y disappointed and after that night, most of us didn't get another date! The drive to Swansboro alone wasn't worth the time for poor tasting food. Wish I had posted this sooner to warn everyone but when I saw how others have had the same experiences, I had to concur it's true.

My husband and I were very disappointed with the service to begin with. The food was not tasy but rather very much full of shells, just like the other person stated about it! Very overpriced, definitelly save your money.Also very poor service, and I agree with the other review, boxed seafood or a steak from outback would be far much cheaper and a hundred times better.

I travel all over to different seafood resturants and I was down in, NC visiting family and they decided to take me to The Riverside steak and seafood. We walk in there and the place is in bad condition, then we order "Maryland Style Crab Cakes" they tasted nothing like Maryland crabcakes, they had this horrible tasting sauce on them and tons of shells in them.I have no problem for paying for costly seafood, but my god the quality of their seafood was so poor that $25.00 a plate for the taste and quality was absurd!Seafood from a box that you make yourself is far better than their food. I travel several times a year to varies places for seafood and this place by far has the worst food! Not to mention horrible and slow service.

Though we live only a few blocks away, we save the RIverside for special occasions since it is rather expensive. However, you cannot beat the atmosophere of the renovated home in downtown Swansboro, the staff is friendly and accomodating and the food is out-of-this-world. Their crab dip appetizer is a must-have, the sweet potato muffins are superb and any entree you choose will be unusual and delicious!
