Used to live in the area several years ago and loved the coming up here for ice cream, sandwiches, and especially the fried onion centers, which seem to be an item unique to this restaurant, so I can safely give the Riverside a "Very Good"...More

This little roadside stand has lots of variety for lunch and dinner but is a little pricey, in my opinion. The ice cream is really good and the picnic tables are in a nice open grassy area which is nice.

Outside dining on picnic tables, place your order at the window and then sit and wait. But... the wait will be well worth it. The burger was superb! We also enjoyed a great ice cream for dessert. Highly recommend, we will definitely be going back.
