Shows are class acts. Food varies in terms of delicious. Beef skewers were wonderful as was the salmon. Salad is so very boring. Desserts are just ok.

Have been going here for 15 or so years now. The food is always descent, but this last visit the food was excellent. The performers for Momma Mia were always excellent. Looking forward to our next visit to The Riverside Center.

We were "fortunate" to have planned our romantic getaway to Fredericksburg for the weekend of the huge windstorm (3/2/18). Unfortunately the wind closed down most of the things to do in Fredericksburg and caused the theater to lose power . . . so we lost...More
