I have had my run in with the Fish Nazi in the past but never complained except verbally to others, but after seeing this review board I could not resist the urge to chime in. Long story short, I went to dinner with my parents who both ordered Catfish, and I ordered griiled Mahi blackened. As I began to eat my Mahi, I noticed that the 1st several bites had small bones in the fish, so I cut to the middle to again find multiple small bones in the Mahi. I called the waitress over & showed her, and requested if I could just trade for the Catfish (as I tried some of my mom's and it was good). The waitress was more that happy to send my plate back for the swap an apologized. Within 2 minutes Fish Nazi Wayne was back at my table asking why I sent it back? I told and showed him the bone in the Mahi and stated "I like my Mahi boneless", as I have never had bones like that in Mahi. Well, I have worked in multiple restaurants in the past and I about fell out of my chair when his reply was "You just got a head-cut of the Mahi which sometimes has bones and there is nothing wrong with this fish". I then stated that I don't care for the head cut and that no one could eat that piece of fish with all the tiny bones in it.....His reply then was "Well, we can bring you Catfish, but you are paying for this Mahi as well". I told him at that point to keep his damn Catfish & Mahi, and if my parents were not there I would have had many other choice words for him. Oh, and after he walked away, the waitress was standing right behind him and looked like she had seen a ghost. She even offered to pay for the Mahi out of her own pocket she was so embarrased about it (which I told her in no way would she ever pay to cover for that Jack-Ass). Bottom line, I don't care if it is the cleanest place with the best seafood in the Tri-Cities (I even have a couple of friends that work there), I still will not go back there, nor will I set foot in his new place "Head-Cut Willies". I hope that the Fish Nazi chokes on one of his "Head-Cut" bones........

AWFUL! Our waitress knew nothing about the menu and got our order wrong. When we tried to have it corrected, the OWNER of the restaurant was nothing but rude and hateful, eventually calling us names. He is a jerk and no one at this restaurant has a clue what is going on. Please avoid at all costs.

Horrible service. Called back to talk to someone about it. Management tried to argue with us so we ended the call. They called back at which point we told them not to call back. They called back again and called us names. Harassment is a crime. I suggest no one eat there.

Ok. So after miserable service we called the restaurant to let them know they needed to talk to their server. Manager we talked to tried to argue with us so we ended the call. We got a call back from them right after with them trying to argue with us again. We asked them not to call back. They call again just to call us names. Harassment is a crime. I suggest no one eat here.

This is great place for fish to go eat! Husband and I are out of towner's and went here with family. Fish was fresh and soups delicious and lots of salad! Servers prompt and courteous even brought out extra napkins, lemons and sauce rolls! Someone came to our table asked it everything was to our liking, we enjoyed! Will stop by again someday! LOVE

Well, first this place is only unique in that it has the most atrocious service. The place is downright horrible.

When I arrived it was not too busy. I requested to sit near a seat with a view of the river, but the waitress acted like she could not hear me. After she left I re-seated myself at a vacant table near the windows. When this little stuck, prissy snippet of a girl came back she said she would have to ask the owner if I could remain in the seat that I chose for myself. She then came back and told me that I would have to move up to another table. She said that section was closed. Since she was moving me to a table that had a window view, I agreed. While I sat there she brought some well-to-do snotty looking people in and sat them in the seat that I had just vacated in the section that she claimed was closed.

I did not say nothing at first, but the more I sat there and thought about it, the more it pissed me off. So I got up and proceeded to leave. She seen me and ran off to tell the manager, who confronted me at the door, ranting on about how I created a contract to pay when I ordered. he said he would call the police, I told the fruitcake to go ahead, I was not paying to eat at place that had such service. As I was going out to my car, one of his flunkys came out like he was trying to get my tag number. He was lucky he did not come up to my car, or there would have been a reason to call the cops.

I called an attorney the day before. He said I could have sued his stupid butt if I had waited around to see if he called the cops for harassment.

The owner of Riverfront Seafood is a real jerk. Everyone in Kingsport refers to him as the Fish Nazi. I have never encountered someone so, so rude I don't understand why people go there.

This place has really good food, especially the shrimp dip. The problem is that they are really slow to give you your food. The last time we were there, they must have lost our order, because it took forever. Then they brought me the wrong entree. You need a lot of time to eat here.

Riverfront Seafood, Kingsport, Tennessee, and Mr. Wayne Mishitti, can take his so call seafood place, and shove it forever more in his rude rectum! I made reservations for Myself, my date, and three other couples, all from out-of-town. Expecting a cordial greeting from a host, and showing our out of town guest some East Tennessee hospitality, turned into a very rude session on our reservations being right at 6pm, and we need to get on with the dinner, he had the same table reserved for another party after us. I normally don't argue with such a moron, but after several sharp rude comments, he don't know how close he come to getting a good Tennessee Red neck buttkickin' from a couple of good ole boys that were with me! I walked away and were finally seated, which the more friendly waiter calmed the situation down. We ate, paid the bill, (18% tip added by them), service charge added for parties of eight or more ??, and left the place, with everyones vote to never return again! The food was fairly good, and the place was nice, but Mr. in-charge, turns your dining experience into a nightmare. Will not go back, Will not recommend under no circumstances!! Turns out from conservations, he is like that to everyone. His day is coming, some short fused hungary walk-in, will knock him flat, at his first rude gester!

The seafood is good. The salad is not worth the money. Our server was distracted and we rarely saw her. If you complain to the owner, he becomes very agitated and rude. He doesn't seem cut out for the service industry. Probably won't go back since good seafood can be had a number of places in the tri cities.

If you love seafood, you'll love this place. I understand they fly it in fresh. It's always delicious.

You can tell by all the cars parked outside at dinner that it's a great place to eat.

It sits on the bank of the Holston River. In the summer you can dine outside.

Recommended.

I first noticed the restaurant was very clean, the people that worked there was very neat and clean. The food was good, served HOT and the service was fast. The prices was not bad. I would much rather driver to Netherland Inn road as to Johnson City. Give it a try.

FOOD IS COOK TO ORDER, FAST EFFICIENT SERVE. DOWN HOME, COUNTRY COOKING, JUST LIKE MOM'S. PLACED NEXT TO THE RIVER WITH AN OUTDOOR DECK. PRICES ARE EXCELLENT.
