We stopped Sunday night and the restaurant is separate from the bar the bartender sat us and bounced back and fourth from customers at the bar and us and still managed to give us the best service I personally have ever had her name was Kayla excellent job and the food was the best diner food I have had in a long time you get beer nuggets after 4 for free and they were slightly sweet and crispy and good. The slim Jim sandwich was some of the best roasted beef I have ever had and the fried chicken was perfectly cooked the turkey dinner my girlfriend had was moist and the stuffing definitely tasted home made overall I haven't had food or service this good in a long time

Wow, Justin, we're honestly blown away by your compliments about the service and the food. Seriously, one of the best roast beef sandwiches you've ever had? Get out of here! It means a lot that service was so great, so we know that Kayla will love reading this. Hope to see you again soon! -Riverview Restaurant & Tavern Team

Really hate to trash an independent, but this place was just not good. Fries were mushy, chicken panini sandwich awful & BLT wrap had way too much cheese. Could it be because they have a new cook? Free fried pizza dough (while a super nice surprise!) was tasteless. The saving grace: the super nice staff,

It sounds like your meal fell flat the last time you were here and we really apologize, Jim. We know you wrote this a year ago but we just joined Google+ and wanted to write you back. Your fries certainly shouldn't have been mushy and, while we do love cheese over here, it shouldn't have overpowered your sandwiches. For both, we're sorry! Our food can be just as great as our service and, even though it's a year later, we'd love another chance to prove it to you. Hope you'll consider it. Best, Riverview Restaurant & Tavern Team

My family and friends eat at the RiverView regularly and we love it! Whether we get the ribs (amazing) or one of the View's many delicious specialty pizzas, we are always happy with the food and service. I recommend the Hickory Hawaiian Chicken pizza--my personal favorite!

We are huge pizza fans and Riverview pizza has become our favorite in the area! We have always done delivery and I just had to right a review tonight because it was so delicious...crispy and extra saucy. We also order the wings pretty often and the traditional BBQ are a nice change from the larger wings places. Overall, we have never had a bad experience. In addition, the delivery people are always incredibly friendly.

So happy you think we've got a great thing going here, Katy! Thanks for the great review and for being such a fantastic supporter. We've always got a Mai Tai at the bar with your name on it. See you soon, Riverview Restaurant & Tavern Team

Love the specials in the tavern. Half priced pizza on Mondays is when we like to go. Pizza is ALWAYS great. We also go on Friday for the all you can eat fish fry and their Algonquin wings are like no one elses. Would love to know what kind of sauce they use so I can make it at home.

Went for buffet. Dining area is cramped, making it difficult to get to buffet. I liked the cheezy potatoes. Did not like much else. Pizza was not very good. Will probably never go back.
