We enjoyed a wonderful evening meal in The Riverfront. The staff were mannerly and attentive. Compliments to the chef as our food was delicious and well presented. There was a great atmosphere amongst the staff and they made us feel very comfortable.

Hi Robin Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us on your recent visit to The Riverfront. We are extremely disappointed you felt the need to describe our lounge as reminding you of the poop deck of an ancient man or war sailing ship. I understand our restaurant is called The Riverfront but it certainly would... More
