We came here for dinner on recommendation of our B&B hosts. The window table with the view of the river was a delight, and the food was very tasty. Grilled salmon was seasoned just right and a large portion was more than I could eat....More

Riversides food was delicious! The mushrooms are marinated in red wine and really very tasty. We enjoyed an unusual appetizer- deep fried gizzards. They were quite good as well. My meal was a Filet which was grilled to perfection. The meal ended with a signature...More

This place would have been a five star locale for us if we could take our kids here occasionally. We enjoy the bar and the locals there are friendly. The view of the river that this restaurant sits on is unsurpassed in Monticello. A table...More
