The $8.00 catfish sandwich was a soggy dark fishy piece of fish on a cold hamburger bun. It is not often I complain about food in a restaurant, some is better than others but this I could not even eat. The waitress did not come back to see how our food was until we were almost ready to go, and she said all catfish is fishy (I know better) and they can't cut out all the dark greasy meat on the filet because they buy them frozen. Also, she said if you want your fried fish crisp, then you have to order it extra crispy there. As far as the place, it was attractive, and I loved the river view, but they need to improve their food and menu. Aside from the quality of the filet, I personally think for an 8.00 sandwich, it should be served on bread that is NOT a cheap cold hamburger bun. A toasted piece of french bread? or something else to justify the price.
Not Again. This used to be one of my favorite catfish places, I guess the operative words are "used to be." I have been back 3 times since the reopening and all three times my catfish was very over cooked. Sure, they have a great view of the river, but in the future, I will go eat fish in Springfield and come watch the river from the park just across the river from Riverview.
Closed by the flood but coming back!.
Best restaurant in AC, TN for my money. Still mostly fried food that I try to avoid, but the rest is still tasty.
The buffet is VERY popular on Friday and there are weekend brunch buffets available.
Personally, I like the table service over viewing the Cumberland.
They have had a community room for large groups if you schedule it in advance with large fire place available and great windows for a wonderful view of the Cumberland river. Birthday, retirement, and holiday parties are favorite activities here!
They also operate Pelican Cruises for a tour of the Cumberland, and a public dock for tieing up while fueling or having a good meal.
They have been closed since the May 2010 flood, but are in the process of rebuilding. To bad they were not allowed to expand when as they rebuild (yes, they tried, but were not allowed by government agencies). We are looking forward to their reopening!
exelent catfish. i ate here a few years back on a business trip the buffet was great this was by far the best catfish i have ever had before i wouldn't even try to order a steak or anything else here sense they are famous for catfish that's like ordering pizza at MC donalds the staff was friendly and prompt and it is right on the river you can even pull up in a boat as they said Alan Jackson has been known to pull up on his boat and eat there also i can't wait to go back again
BEST CATFISH IN TN. I HAVE EATEN AT THIS RESTAURANT MANY TIMES AND IT IS BY FAR THE BEST PLACE IN TN FOR CATFISH. THE STAFF IS ALWAYS PROMPT AND READY TO SERVE. THE MANAGEMENT WAS VERY PERSONAL AND I AM ALWAYS GREETED BY A MANAGER WHEN I WALK IN. WHAT RESTAURANT CAN YOU GO TO NOWADAYS WHERE A MANAGER GREETS AND SEATS YOU. NOWHERE, EXCEPT RIVERVIEW. THE FOOD, WHETHER IT IS CATFISH, CHICKEN, OR STEAKS, IS ALWAYS COOKED TO PERFECTION AND IF SOMETHING IS NOT TO YOUR PLEASURE THEN THE KITCHEN STAFF IS MORE THAN WILLING TO FIX THE PROBLEM. I READ IN A PREVIOUS REVIEW THAT A MEMBER OF THE KITCHEN STAFF TASTED A STEAK AND STATED THAT IT TASTED FINE TO THEM TO A CUSTOMER. I SIMPLY DO NOT BELIEVE THIS TO BE TRUE. I HAVE NEVER WITNESSED SUCH RUDE BEHAVIOR FROM THE STAFF AT RIVERVIEW. ANYWAYS, IF YOUR LOOKING FOR GREAT FOOD WITH ALL THE BENEFITS OF A CATFISH HOUSE AND GRANNY'S KITCHEN AND THE KINDNESS OF A STAFF THAT REMINDS YOU OF THE GOOD OL' DAYS THEN YOU CAN'T AFFORD TO MISS THE EXPERIENCE OF DINING AT RIVERVIEW RESTAURANT.
User review by yellowcat01. I have eaten here once and it was by far the worst experience I have ever had. We made reservations for a group of 30 and there was ONE waitress for all of us. After waiting 20 minutes for silverware and 30 minutes for a drink refill, I spoke with the manager to recieve absolutly no remorse or apology. I can honestly say that after an experience like that I will not be eating here again.
never again. I have eaten here a few times. had a problem on the last visit. I had the Ribeye steak Too my taste buds I thought it was bad,Complained about it and the waitress took it back. The manager came to my table and told me he had tasted my steak and It tasted fine to him. This has really turned me off of ever going back to this place.
