Excellent food and service in an authentically rustic pub, set in an historical building. Casual, friendly, full of locals. Lovely river views and outside patio. Love the oyster burgers and christmas dinner poutine! Plan to take all my visitors here.

Meals, service and atmosphere are lovely. We find it friendly and relaxing . Everyone needs to experience the Riverside (I think It would be so nice to see a fireplace during the winter months . )

We enjoyed the patio here, watching tubers go by in the summer. It was a very nice spot to spend some time.
