Basically, Riverside is a long wall of fridges filled with beer, like WOB. The spin is, you grab your beer, open it, sit down on one of the many sofas or chairs, and chill until it's time to pay and leave. I love that you can browse and grab whatever you want, and it's cold.

Food is also served.

Absolute nightmare experience. Unless you like food poisoning and racial slurs!
I had the fish tacos and thought that they tasted a bit off. Well I should have listened to my taste buds because they made me very sick. Some more BIG red flags were the fruit flies
(yes plural) that we both found in our draft beers and the dried food stuck to our table. We like hole in the wall joints (and that is what this place is) and our server was nice so we gave it the benefit of the doubt.
But just to top off our experience we over heard the owner or who we thought was the owner (big fat loud mouth) using derogatory insults and making jokes about a former black employee. Well that was enough and this black man payed his over priced bill and walked out of this dump and will not return.
So again if you like dirty, disgusting places that serve bad food, and racist loud mouths then you will love this place. I saw another review from an usatisfied customer and they said it looks like a dirty TGI Fridays and a dirty 7-11 combined. LOL thats about it.
NOT GOOD

Riverside Market is an out-of-the-way market that has an extensive selection of craft beer, but it's also like a cafe where you can get food. If you don't live in this neighborhood or know it well, you will need navigation or Google Maps to find this place. Cool neighborhood, though. The swinging bridge around the corner is something you don't see very often. Once there, right to the left they have a huge selection of bottles in coolers. The employees are nice and kind of let people grab what they want and pay when ready (honor system). Some people may consider this a negative, but I don't. I actually have not tried the food but have been tempted to. At night it kind of turns into a bar where you can grab singles out of the cooler and hang out with friends. During the day it's a lunch spot. The prices are not as good as total wine (figure $2 more per six pack) but as I mentioned, they do have a great selection and you might find something here that they don't have at Total Wine. For example, Total Wine didn't have Lagunitas Sucks the last two times I went. I went to Riverside Market and they had it for $12/six-pack and they would only let me buy one. $2 more than Total Wine charges but they had it when nobody else did. Riverside Market is a nice little market worth checking out for craft beer.
