Came here on a cold Saturday night and we were not disappointed. The chicken ribs and eggplant chips were fantastic, we will definitely be coming back. They also offer a Pot and Parma special on Wednesday nights

Nice pub, it's unfortunate that it doesn't do meals, so basically just the TAB, pokies and does have a pool table. Good place to watch the footy and grab some drinks.

Horrible hotel with horrible rude staff. Inedible food. Cares more about gambling than providing food. Don't bother. It's a waste of time.

Came here with a few of my mates the other night and the majority of us ordered a parma with a beer. I've had my fair share of Parmas in my time and this was definitely one of the most average ones I've had, it was bland, cold, the salad on the side was clearly old; maybe even a few days old and the chips were cold and under cooked definitely not going to come back here again.

Poor, poor, poor.

Terrible food, old decor, horrible management.

Arguable one of the worst establishments I've been to.

Definitely time for new owners!

We did not go to the hotel as such. We went to the pop up restaurant Mahob by Amok. We have been here several times and the food never fails to be exceptional. Only giving four stars because I find the restaurant a bit loud. Food is beautiful with lots of variety and plenty of vegetarian options.

Had a beer here while waiting for friends to arrive for dinner next door. The pub/TAB was a little rub down, but the service was good. A lot of pokies machine in-house and might not be kids friendly.
The parma here was probably the most average thing I have ever eaten, starting with the parma its self it was very bland with no seasoning & a very clearly out of the bottle sauce. The cheese & ham was good tho. The parma was also cooked in old oli as you could taste it with the lack of seasoning. The salad was good with a semi coleslaw with nice dressing. The chips where below average with very little salt/seasoning and being slightly over cooked. Over all of the meal was only 16$ but I would it at a 4.5/10

Had a Chicken Parma tonight and it was one of the best I have had in a long time. Great thick and tasty chicken breast with a good crumb and nice topping on top. The chips where good as was the salad

This is a cool pub attracts some nice social locals and the service here is excellent.
I saw some bad reviews for this pub including some for bad parmas- brought the kids for a pub meal. The Parma was excellent! Big serves, delicious chips. And they gave free drinks for the kids. 5/5 will come again soon!

Good meal, friendly staff. Can't ask for much better

I have been to every pub in Melbourne some I qualified to say that this one is the WORST. There are some real average joints in Melbourne but the Riversdale takes the cake. If you're lucky enough to survive the salmonella poisoning your likely to get from the worst parmigiana in the world, tell your friends and family to AVOID this place. Staff are rude, food is horrible and all around an absolute fail.

No lunch service Friday, couldn't even get a packet of chips! Beer or pokies

Advertise restaurant open. Closed, no staff to ask, but pokies were going....

Heard on the f/b Hawthorn & Auburn Community group that The Riversdale had picked up its act, so we gave it another chance. Bzzzz ... a big F-A-I-L. The chicken in the parma special was very tough. Say no more ..

I booked the function room for my 50th birthday recently. I can't speak highly enough about the service we received from Kim the events manager, who was incredibly helpful. The room was perfect for a small gathering, and it was so great to be able to bring our own grazing table snacks, and DJ equipment. Really reduced the costs. I would certainly book again for future events.
