First no one under 21 is allowed there as it is a bar only. State law in Indiana. The food was good place is a little small so very crowded.

We had dinner at Riverside on a Saturday evening. While I think they serve the best catfish in the area, that evening I wanted one of their cheeseburgers. I always thought their burgers were excellent but now they have upgraded to what I would call...More

We live about 45 minutes away near Lafayette, IN, but come to the Riverside at least once every 6 weeks. Their entrees are exceptional and the service top notch!

I recommend the pork chops and baked potatoes. As you sit on the back deck you can see the fish juming going down the river.

I'm sorry not able to provide you with an answer. I'm not vegetarian but I'll try to keep vegetarians in mind the next time I write a review.
