Went down on Wednesday for the burger night special like we have dozens of times before. Ordered my burger medium rare and it came out super well done. The bottom of the bun was like a hockey puck so hard it appeared they were trying...to freshen up a stale bun. The jalapeno peppers on top were not sauteed to make them soft but just cut up raw and served on top. I don't know if they have changed cooks again but they need to get someone back in the kitchen that knows how to cook.More

I used to like this place but my meal was disappointing to say the least. The restaurant was empty, the bar had a few people on a late Monday afternoon around 4:30. My mom ordered a turkey burger and me a bowl of chili. My...bowl of chili was so small it was ridiculous. I complained and the manager insisted there was NOTHING she could do. How about another few spoonfuls? Nope we measure it out and that is all you are getting. She continued with a bunch of baloney about how they "switched bowls." Yea okay. The waitress was nice but the manager was not a good manager and had terrible people skills. Plus we had to wait close to 40 minutes for a sandwich and chilli with hardly anybody there. No wonder the place is deserted every time I go there. Never going back.More

Friendly atmosphere with about a billion sports TVs. Good substantial food, priced nicely and served by a friendly wait crew. My wife's comments about the margarita were "best AND largest I've had in a long time." The creamy crab soup was perfect. And we were...told it was calorie free! ! Can you believe that? (No it was not, but super anyway.)More

This was a seat yourself restaurant. I initially thought we would be a party of five, but our waitress only gave us one menu. We ended up being a party of four and got more menus. When our food came out, we had no napkins,...and no utensils and had to ask two other employees for assistance. The food was good, but the service sucked.More

We rarely eat here but wow what a great waitress...Kristen. I wanted to hire her on the spot. I wasn't sure what to order for Tom - Coke or iced tea...Oh no worries easy to replace with what he prefers when he gets here. His...Coke was flat. I'm sorry and thank you for letting me know let me replace it and I'll alert my manager right away. I ordered mussels and she replied oh they are the best.. everyone loves them..me too...yes they were...she saw my wine glass was empty...oh no!!!! your wine glass has a leak, may I refill it? Score! She didn't miss a beat.More

Unbelievable breakfasts with huge menu, perfectly cooked and very inexpensive. Word has not gotten out and spacious place so no waits! In addition, about 5 specials that include crab Benedict’s, special crepes, omelets and more. We go often on Sunday. Costs much less than other...places. Highly recommend for weekend breakfast. Not available during the week when lunch and dinner are served.More

Was in town visiting family and they brought us down since this is their local hangout. It’s a classic roadhouse with bar cuisine and TVs for watching the game. I ordered the Maryland Crab soup and it was amazing. So good I went back a...day later for another bowl of it. I will say that the soup volume in the bowl was barely more than the cup so you are better off just ordering the cup.More

I tried to get away from the traffic jammed at the Bay Bridge and landed at the Riverbay. Talked to the bartender and found out it has been here for long time. Great bar with locals and regular. My steak salad was just right. I...need to find it again the next time I am in the area.More
