One of few restaurants in St. Marys central. Conveniently located on Main Street directly across from ferry terminal. It has both indoor and outdoor seating - with the outdoor tables on a porch facing the water. Menu is slanted towards Greek food with some seafood and pasta options. Good service. Full bar, several beers on tap but limited wine by... More

All three people in my party enjoyed the food and the venue here, but the service was beyond poor the day we were there. We waited a long time for everything but a table.

We went here for lunch and dinner was OUT as we were still so full. The chicken parmigiana was wonderful. The chicken very moist. The shrimp were fresh and lightly batter. All in all great restaurant.

We stopped by for lunch. Ate outdoors. Very peaceful, almost no traffic. Good service. Fried shrimp delicious, buanother two or three in the order would have been nice. Pasta dish was superb. Kids burger was more than enough for any kid.

I was excited to eat here for the first time with my husband for our anniversary. We got to the restaurant and ordered drinks and an appetizer of pita chips and hummus. We waited a very long time for the appetizer although the restaurant was not very busy yet. The appetizer was very good but my husband didn't eat it... More

I am from NY where the population is very Greek. The Riverside Cafe can stand up to any Restaurant there. The food was excellent! The view is beautiful!!

We had our best meal in St Marys at the Riverside Cafe. You can dine inside or on the porch and look out at that river. The cafe offers both Greek and American dishes. From the gyro to the ruben, we were happy with each dish at our table.

Waitress only knew one of the IPAs on draft. Had... More

We stopped here for a late lunch and sat on the porch which has a lovely view of the river and park. My husband had the crab cake burger which was huge and came with fries. I enjoyed a Greek salad with a crab cake on top. It was delicious. The service was good.

Poor service to start. Over 10 minutes before waitress arrived with menus and restaurant was less than half full. Side item ordered extra was 1/3 the size of the exact same side item that came with the meal. One meal ordered and only when the food was delivered without half of the meal were we told they didn't even have... More
