I absolutely love this place! Mainly because they serve hushpuppies with your fish entrée. You never see that anywhere else. My mother always orders the White Fish, but I always order the Tilapia, which is grilled and nicely seasoned. After seeing all these reviews on the shrimp, I may order that the next time we go, because I do love... More

Great service with abundant food offerings. The fish taste as if it was just caught in the river outside.

Best seafood in Kingsport, period. Ambiance is great as the restaurant sits off the Holston River with outdoor dining should you choose. Some area residents refer to the owner as "the fish nazi". I can't understand why. I guess it's a reference to Seinfeld. It sure beats the heck out of Red Lobster.

Shrimp are cooked to perfection at The Riverfront. I love this place!!! I get better and fresher Shrimp at The Riverfront than I have ever got anywhere in Florida. It is as good as "Uncle Bubba's" in Savannah, Ga and I do NOT have to drive as far.

Absolutely brilliant food. Coconut Shrimp was really good and the fried catfish was amazing. The restaurant overlooks the Holston River so get a table near the window. Service was impeccable.

The Riverfront Seafood Company is one of very few real seafood restaurants in the Tri Cities area. It is set on the beautiful Holston River. The food is good but not exceptional and doesn't keep paces with the prices. Depending on the season, the Holston River is a breeding ground for many of the aquatic insects that our Rainbow Trout...

Wayne, the manager & owner, is the rudest, unethical, condescending, nasty, arrogant, egotistical man I have ever met in my entire life! The fried gulf shrimp were full of shells, and the service was mediocre. My biggest complaint was at the end, when I received my check. I questioned the cost of an item, and he humiliated me to no...

Wonderful seafood in a landlocked area of Tennessee. I brought my friends visiting from Massachusetts, who are very picky about their seafood. They loved the tuna and the atmosphere. Thanks for helping me impress them with our neck of the woods.

My husband and I visited the Riverfront Seafood Company yesterday evening for dinner. Though we were 10 minutes late for our reserved time, we were still seated promptly. All of the staff we interacted with were courteous and friendly. Our waitress was professional and attentive, but she also seemed hurried, at times answering a question while walking away. Maybe they... More
