Beautiful spot on the side of the road. Great Maine to sphere with friendly fast service. Loved it. Vegetarian options there and very, very dog friendly. Corgi beside us got a free ice cream with a biscuit on top.

If you can't make your own, then the crab rolls at Riverside are as close to nirvana that one can get !!!! And the folks behind the counter really make the visit worthwhile

Fish Burger, Monster Burger, Onion Rings, and coleslaw were great! The vibes are great and the staff is friendly.

Friendly staff, great food & ice cream for the dogs! We will be back! Monster lobster roll was a bit disappointing since it wasn't as much lobster as expected for the price! Next time will just get regular size! Great place! Definitely a must if...More

The food is great and the selection is broad. Nothing fancy but if you're hungry when you've finished then, something is wrong with you!

I eat here every chance I get. The owners are the best when it comes to drive in food. Huge burgers, great seafood. It's my preferred place to eat in machias.

We had several great meals at this takeout in Machias during the blueberry festival. We especially loved the crabmeat salad and crab roll . Yum!

This is a nice outdoor, take out place. The food was good but what we had was very pricey: small lobster roll, 1/2 pint clams, tea, milkshake came to $40! There are picnic benches where you can sit beside the river. If we go again,...More

Stopped here on our way out of town as recommended by a local for a quick lunch. We had a lobster roll and a scallop roll. Both were good but nothing exceptional and we would probably stop again if not looking for a sitdown restaurant.
