    From the minute we walked in we were received and acknowledged our reservation. We were a bit early so we sat in very cozy chairs. Our evening was one to remember. The food was excellent and the portions beyond. It was my partners birthday. She received an on the house cheese cake. A great time.

    Been to the Riverside Inn numerous times. Have never ever been disappointed with the food or the service. Great staff. I would like to take this opportunity to thank the chef. You do an amazing job. Last but not least the prices are reasonable considering the size of the portions. Thank you Riverside and will see you soon. Bob and Louise-Ann

    The Riverside Inn has become one of our "go-to" spots when we meet friends for lunch during cottage season. As always the service was friendly and prompt and the food well above-average although, perhaps, lacking in creativity for a pub. No signature dishes! the traffic noise is a bit of a nuisance on the front patio although less annoying than the flies that kept us company during our meal.

    Service was Fantastic! The table was tight, as was the restroom. The noise level was high inside. We will be back, but will likely request the patio next time. The food was great! The schnitzel and chicken park were our favorite dishes. Very generous portions! The chicken sizzle and the shrimp pasta were also good. The chocolate cake and the cheesecake desserts were nice.

    Nice to see that the new owners are maintaining, for the most part, the menu offerings, the high level of service and top quality of food. Food portions are very sufficient. Food came out hot and properly cooked. Riverside will continue to be one of our local go-to restaurants.

    Shrimp scampi is delicious and is my fav when I go there. Next time I will ask for crostini or some type of bread to soak up every last drop. Food always has beautiful presentation. Service is friendly and attentive. This is one of our favourite places to go!

    Food and service were good as expected but the noise level in the room we were in was unbearable! Couldn’t hold a decent conversation, acoustics were awful, very noisy, won’t return for that reason alone. Shame as otherwise a great spot to eat.

    We really enjoyed our food and the service was quick and efficient and also fun! I don’t think we’ve ever been disappointed and the portions are large. Only suggestion I have is to add more craft beers and maybe a few other wine choices.

    Our favorite place to enjoy great food and wonderful service. We celebrate special occasions and just a drive in the country with them. The ambiance is nice and the servers are wonderfully friendly. The only thing not in their perfect favour is that sometimes the noise level is high, and this cannot always be blamed on children. I wish that they were open more days of the week.

    Excellent place for a great quality/value dining. We stopped there for lunch about 5 years and this time I made a reservation ... just in case... it was my birthday and since I had a final say, I picked Riverside....service and food was outstanding. We are not going to wait another 5 years to go back there again... it will be some time in the fall this year....all those that haven't been there before,... nake your reaervation today... you will not regret it.

    Food is outstanding - it took a bit longer for our food than expected but the waitress advised us before we asked - that they were short staffed in the kitchen. They were down a chef due to a death in the family. We appreciated her telling each table as she was serving them. The wait was worth it. Wait staff were working at a very quick pace. Well done!

    My partner and I ordered the Schnitzel which was far too big. If you want to serve such a large piece, perhaps you could consider also offering a smaller portion. The taste was fine and the presentation somewhat unique to me. Our waitress was most accommodating and quick with the serving of all courses. We will be back but to order a lesser volume of food meal. Thank you for the opportunity to comment. Bruce Faulkner

    We were staying in Coboconk and the Riverside and was recommended local restaurant just a few kilometres down the road. The ambiance was great, the food was really good. I had the excellent chicken sizzler, gluten-free, and my husband has a pork schnitzel. Our only feedback for the restaurant is that the pork schnitzel could’ve used more sauce. It was a little dry. But the service was excellent and it was a lovely local establishment.
