We make it a point to eat here with our friends every year when we are here on vacation. The staff is always attentive and efficient. The fresh out of the oven bread could be a main entrée or the dessert. We usually get the planked whitefish with vegetables and piped mashed potatoes or the salmon. Both were excellent this... More

We checked in to a B&B in South Torch just after 9pm on a Monday evening and were looking for a good meal. Got to the Riviera about 9:45 with the kitchen closing at 10. Despite the late hour the staff was welcoming and the food was good. The whitefish and perch were especially tasty. We'll go back on our... More

Ate here in a group of eight. All were very satisfied with their orders. Tuesday was shrimp night and you could get a shrimp dinner three different ways for 10.95. The coconut shrimp was plentiful with thirteen shrimp in the basket. Others ordered the whitefish which was either served broiled on a cedar plank or fried. The serving was very... More

For years I have taken my family to Torch Rivera for consistently decent food and above average pizza. All that has changed. On a recent high season Saturday night, when reservations used to be necessary, the place was at least half empty. Clearly former patrons are voting with their feet and "staying away in droves ". We ordered three large... More

The Torch Rivera is located across from the Northwind Resort which we try to stay every year we visit.

Disappointing. Planked whitefish fair at best. COD under cooked. Service very slow. Nice waitress. Much better options are Mr. C's, Town Club and Pear's

We stopped in for dinner tonight with a group of friends. They were short staffed and the wait was long. It took over half an hour to get our order taken and then even longer to get bread and salads. When the food arrived it was cold and steak was overlooked. It was not a pleasant experience. The manager did... More

Torch Riviera has consistently good food and good service. The owners are always there and greet their guests with a smile. They are famous for their planked white fish. They also have excellent pizza. You can also order their pizza carry out. Our last visit, we had their deep dish pizza, antipasto salad and delicious warm homemade bread.
