OUR STORIES. OUR LEGACY. OUR PASSION.
The Terwilliger Family, Owners of Riverview Cafe
Since it opened as an oyster bar in 1946, the Riverview Restaurant has earned a reputation among locals and tourists alike for fresh-off-the-boat seafood; in particular, shrimp. The Terwilliger family has been frying and broiling the best shrimp around since the days when a dollar could buy a fried shrimp dinner. A time-worn menu from 1946 hangs on the wall near the entrance, showing that a plate of fried shrimp was just as popular then as now.
“I have been cleaning fish that were literally swimming an hour before they’re on your plate. That’s as fresh as it gets in my opinion. I can attest to that.”
