Great bar with a perfect location and amazing views! Food here is really good - I had a yummy beef burger with fries, was hot and tasty. About $20. Three different venues in one place - you can choose from it down dining, to more casual bar food and drinks (and pool tables), to outside BBQ seating areas etc. The Riverhead often has live band music in the weekends - and they're typically very good. I saw The Hipstamatics here once - they were awesome, and really got the crowd going.
Popular bar with locals and tourists alike - and normally a mixture of the two. I noticed bikers use this as a stop off point too - in the weekend, there were plenty of Harley Davidson and similar motorbikes in the carpark.
Good fun in winter (and I've been a few times) but this would be simply stunning in summer. Great place to spend some time relaxing and catching up with friends.
Have frequented 'The Riverhead' for many years now and I have to say since Paula & Stephen took over, the dining experience and service is fantastic! You're also sure to enjoy the ambience either on the Landing deck overlooking the estuary or the live music on a Sunday afternoon in the Boat House. I'll be back!
Such an amazing restaurant and bar! Food and menu is excellent and there is lots to choose from. The staff are friendly and helpful. The best part is the scenery and venue, I could easily stay there all day. There is often live bands and after your meal you can go for a walk down to the jetty. Wonderful atmosphere I cannot wait to go there again!
I love this place- both the pub side and restaurant side. I have been here many times and have always enjoyed it. I have had the pizzas on the pub side which are amazing. Last week at the restaurant I tried the seared scallop entree and I am dying to get back and have it again, delicious!!! I always find the waiters friendly too. Venue itself is really well presented and inviting!
