Lobster Mac and Cheese

This was one of several dishes we shared for dinner. Also had native clams, ahi tartare tower and the fish and chips. Everything was fresh and delicious and the portions were large. Great leftovers. Kayla our server was personable and professional. There was lots of chunks of lobster and the cheese sauce was awesome.

Scampi Flatbread

The most delicious flatbread! The crust is a perfect thinness, the cheese is amazing and the shrimp (which are plentiful) are perfectly tender and juicy. We had dinner at Riley's 3 times in 4 days, have tried many dishes, including crab cakes (light, fluffy and delicately seasoned), steak (medium rare, done to perfection) tastiest lobster bisque, delectable seafood surprise. All surpassed our expectations. Riley's is an outstanding restaurant, we didn't want to eat anywhere else! And the staff and the view are wonderful!

Steamed Native Clams

Great food, good price, seaside view, excellent service. The casual sophistication of the this gem of a restaurant cannot be overlooked. The honest presentation of the dishes is only surpassed by the quality and authentic flavor of the very fresh food. Visiting from Austin we consider ourselves foodies. I only wish Austin had a Riley's! We enjoyed every bite from the steamed clams to the NY cheesecake.

Seafood Cobb Salad

We have been to Riley's twice this summer.. Sunday is great because they have a band every other week. The food was outstanding, the drinks are refreshing, and the atmosphere can't be beat. I had a seafood salad, It was loaded with delicious seafood. We have eaten fish sandwiches and burgers, and fish specials. it has been so enjoyable, we're bringing friends tomorrow.

Steve O's Seafood Treasure

This dish is worth driving from NYC for. The shrimps, scallops and lobster are done to perfection, the sauce coating the pasta is delicately flavored. I also had the lobster bisque, which was the best lobster bisque I've had in a very long time. The staff is lovely, courteous and attentive. The location and the view cannot be beat. I could not be happier with my meal!

Sea Scallops Risotto

Amazing huge sea scallops and creamy risotto. Best I've had. The view was beautiful. Waitstaff attentive. We went on a Wednesday night, and there was a one man band playing. Great music! 5 out of 5 stars!!!
