Walking in the balmy, sleepy town of Historic St. Mary's, you'll find the Southern white building housing the Riverside Cafe'. Upstairs is an outside porch for dining, gazing out at the river, and seeing the Ferry boat landing. Inside are large windows with lots of sunshine coming through. The menu has a wide assortment of ethnic dishes; Italian, Greek, Seafood, Beef, and lots in-between. We ordered two of the specials, one was Greek stuffed peppers served with pita bread and Feta cheese. The other was Fish and Chips made with FRESH cod and served with a side of coleslaw. This was my selection, and it was a nice size portion of delicious batter-fried fish. My hubby's dish was a large plate of poblano stuffed peppers with sauce, which he quickly devoured in no time at all. I of course, saved room for my Chocolate cheesecake---taking small bites to enjoy the creamy texture and sweetness, after the fish I had filled up on. WE enjoyed the relaxing ambiance and good-natured service by the staff working there. So will you when you come for a visit, and YES its handicapped accessible.

We've eaten here several times, and the lunch selection is good. It's location makes for a quick get away after a tour of the Submarine Museum or heading across the street for a walk on the waterfront. Not what it was back in its hay day, but still fun to stop by the town.

This restaurant is conveniently located across the street from the Cumberland Island ferry. We had lunch there and our server was friendly and very attentive. We liked the option of inside or patio dining and the combination of both Greek and American food. The food was very good and the prices were reasonable.

After visiting the Submarine Museum we stopped here for lunch (just a block away) It was 2 pm so there were available tables on the porch over looking the river. One of the specials was braised lamb shank served over linguine, delicious. We also had fried large shrimp which were very lightly breaded and cooked just right. Their fish comes fresh from Jacksonville fish market. Wait staff was attentive. Good place for anyone visiting St. Marys. Prices were reasonable (Several local people were eating there today. Always a good sign)

This is my favorite place to eat in St. Mary's! The food is all freshly prepared. The chicken lemon soup is delicious. Desserts are phenomenal, too! Beautiful place to sit outside and look out over the water.
