Riverside Cafe

Riverside Café Waterfront Deck is a father and son, family-owned and operated business.

It is easy to see the camaraderie between owners and co-workers. "We take pride in the fact that we're all one big family here - this is not just a restaurant. Tom and George, our Chefs', have been with our family from the beginning and have over 65 years of collective experience. And our Assistant Chefs' Gregory and Rolando have 35 years collective experience. Their hearts and souls are put into our creations and all of our staff thrives on seeing our customers' smiles," says Dean. "We want to make you feel like you're at home when you're here. Our motto is if we don't like it ourselves, we're not going to serve it to our customers."

If you want a relaxing, family and friend fun type atmosphere, you will find it at the Riverside Café Waterfront Deck. Find out for yourself – come and enjoy the experience.

DeSoto National Memorial

A visitor to De Soto National Memorial can quickly experience four distinct natural ecosystems along the park's half mile nature trail. The park is situated along the south shore of the Manatee River at the mouth of Tampa Bay. The Bay is a subtropical estuary consisting of open water and a mixture of mangrove and salt marsh vegetation in the tidal zone. The average temperature is 72 degrees with January the coldest month and August the hottest. Sixty percent of the annual rainfall falls during the summer months.

Boater Directions:

Boaters may access the park via the Manatee River. A small cove east (up river) of De Soto Point offers a temporary anchorage sheltered from south winds. Small craft may be beached at the cove, but boaters may not tie to protected vegetation including mangroves nor to park equipment including signs and benches.

De Soto National Memorial does not have a boat ramp.
