Riverside Tavern Review

Owned and managed by the Bowen (Belikin beer) family, Riverside Tavern is one of the city's most popular and agreeable restaurants, with dependably good food, friendly service, and safe parking. The signature hamburgers, which come in several sizes from 6 oz. to enormous, are arguably the best in Belize. The Riverside has steak and prime rib dishes, from cattle from the Bowen farm at Gallon Jug. Sit inside in air-conditioned comfort, at tables set around a huge bar, or on the outside covered patio overlooking Haulover Creek. This is one of the few restaurants in Belize with a dress code—shorts aren't allowed at night. The fenced, guarded parking lot right in front of the restaurant makes it easy and safe to park for free.

    Riverside Tavern Review

    I ate here the other day and was very disappointed. I asked for a dish without meat and was served a plate of noodles in olive oil and charged the same amount I would've been charged had I chosen the plate with meat. Also, the service was awful. We went around 2pm and their were only two other tables besides ours but yet we rarely saw our waiter. Seriously, the only thing this place had going for it was that it was air conditioned.
