I can't say enough about this local treasure. Friendly staff. Great food and lots of it. (Pizzas, subs, salads, apps, etc.) Then throw in 12+ coolers slammed full with some of the best craft beer you can buy in Florida. I couldn't have been happier. OK, the music could have been better, but it changed after awhile.

You walk in, choose your beer/beers from the cooler. Grab a table, and then they come around to see if you want food or just want to hang out. Had some beers in cans, mostly bottles ranging from 12oz to 750s. Domestic Craft beers to a ton of European beers, especially Belgians. I went through two Cigar City Brewing (CCB) 12oz and a Victory Hop Wallop with my meal. Then I got two CCB 750s to take back with me.

I had a small sandwich (9" hoagie packed with meat and toppings!) with fantastic fries! The pizzas looked fantastic. The fries were so good I had them put on another order.

It is a bit of a PIA to find, so make sure you have good directions, a good cabbie, and/or GPS to get there.

All the staff and even the owners were supper nice. Lots of locals having fun. A small group playing dominoes while eating pizza and enjoying beers.

There is a cooler with N/A drinks and a cooler with some less exciting domestic stuff if you have a mixed crowd. Also have couches for just hanging out.

I wish this was my local haunt!

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.
