This is our sixth year of having our Thanksgiving dinner at Riverside. Look forward to it every year, Food is awesome, traditional Thanksgiving buffet, turkey and all the trimmings, great variety of pies along with cheese cake. Warm, inviting atmosphere with fire burning in the fireplace giving it a very welcoming feel. Makes you want to curl up on the... More

You won't come across this restaurant by accident - it's a little out of the way - but the view is delightful, the food is very good, and the prices are reasonable.

My husband and I built a cabin about a mile from the Riverside five years ago and are regular customers when we are in the area. We really lucked out! We can't say enough good things about the owners, food and staff. Tammy, Dan and the entire wait staff are very friendly and accommodating - even to our three yr... More

Located next to the Beaverkill just north of Roscoe on old 17, is the Riverside Cafe and Inn. It is north of the Cooks Falls exit on the new 17. The lunch menu is limited to only a few choices, but the hamburger and fries and the BLT we ordered were very good, and the fries were excellent. They serve... More

This review is for the restaurant only. We have submitted a separate review for the lodging. While the interior is rather outdated, the views from the rear glassed-in area are fantastic. Overlooking the river during your meal is a treat. Try to get a table in this part of the restaurant. They start your dinner off with a large, family... More

My sister and I went specifically to this restaurant because of the great reviews, we were not greatly impressed. I think if we'd been fishermen, the waitress would have paid better attention to our table. The food was OK, but nothing special. There are very few decent restaurants in the area, and because of that, the place is busy... mostly... More

A true gem that we found along Route 17: Get here on a Friday night and you meet all the locals. The food is abundant, wind delicious and the service great. And the bread is baked on the premises as well.

My wife, mother-in-law and I drove over from Hancock, NY for dinner here after reading the many excellent reviews. Although the restaurant has a Roscoe address, it is actually located about 8 miles east of Roscoe. Both dining rooms are nice but we made a reservation and got a table next to the window overlooking the river. The view is... More

Stopped here on the way home. It is conveniently located right off Rte 17 outside of Roscoe. We both had the chicken sandwich and fries. The sandwiches were delicious with an attention to all the details. The tomato was flavorful the lettuce crisp. Very serene with a view of the Beaver Kill, just what we needed to recharge for the...
