Off the beaten path

This is a great little place to get some home cooked meals as well as your tavern staples.
The menu is huge! From salads to sandwiches, cheese sticks to pizza, they have it all!
You are sure to find something to wet your whistle.
Be forewarned that they serve you enough pasta for 2!
and Friday fish fry is awesome!

Daily specials and free refills on drinks.

If you are looking for that place without the crowd, this is for you.

Saturday Night Buffet and Pizza any day

The Riverview restaurant in Algonquin Illinois is known for its excellent pizza. It is very good. The best part is the Saturday night buffet for $13. This is GOURMET food one would normally find in a very upscale restaurant. The chefs do an excellent job of properly seasoning all dishes the way they should be made. Falling off the bone ribs are always a buffet staple. Some other items I have had at the buffet include steak tornadoes, eggplant parmigiana, pork with cranberry sauce, chicken breasts in different delicious sauces, Italian beef and sausages, garlic potatoes, fresh al dente vegetables, and off course, their pizza. The soups are delicious, and their desserts feature a home made ‘smore’ that is among the best ever. This is a must stop restaurant. You will love it.

Lengthy menu and nightly specials

“Since 1936” the sign out front says. This is a big endorsement for me, usually, if a place has been around that long, they must be doing something right. Right? Used to be I chose restaurants based solely on another sign criteria: “most credit cards accepted.” But these days my standards are different.

The Riverview is a neighborhood tavern in search of a neighborhood. And one can’t see the river from any location at the joint, tho surely one could back in 1936. Now there are houses and strip malls in the way.

What’s great about the Riverview is a lengthy menu and nightly specials; Friday nites you’ll find the local ubiquitous fish fry. Sundays nites, it’s all you can eat “broasted” chicken. The bird comes with slaw, a roll, and choice of fries, baked, or mashed.

Tried the onion rings, which were panko coated, very crispy, quality onions, great flavor. Came with a ramekin of ranch, I sure don’t know whomever decided that ranch was the ultimate dipping sauce (lobbyists from Hidden Valley?) but it doesn’t do it for me; nor does thousand island, for that matter.

The chicken was great, came with fries and slaw, the fries seemed baked, but the waitress affirmed they were deep-fried. The question only arose because they weren’t greasy. (Which is a good thing). There was a patty melt somewhere on the table, it wasn’t prepared exactly as ordered, but was satisfactory nonetheless.
