I never had the opportunity to eat there but I have heard about many fine things in regards to Riverside Inn.  I always had good intentions to make it there for some special occasion.  The floods have been trials for some in the Ozarks and I'm sorry to see that Riverside Inn will no longer be.  They will surely be missed as having a long standing reputation of fine dining in the Ozarks.  I wish the owners well.

We ate there a few times and it really has a lot of class. I heard there's a chance they might relocate but I don't know for sure.
