Really nice restaurant with a bar area next door. Lovely outlook onto the riverhead and nice open windows and a lovely wee deck for dining in warmer weather. The food is yum, we enjoyed the ribs, the fish and chips, the squid and some nice coffees. We did however have quite a wait on our desserts but it was a busy day so pretty understandable. The wait staff are great however there is one waitress I don't enjoy being served by, and I make a point to be seated away from the tables she regularly waits on.
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!
