I used to go to Riverside and enjoyed the food and atmosphere. When it became Christys I was worried it would lose my interest. I cautiously went back. It is great! Love the food, service and live music. The calmari is wonderful, but I don't like it with the buffalo sauce. Stick with the oh so good marinara.
The crowd is low key and friendly. The bartenders are helpful but not pushy and so far I have really loved every music venue - even (cringe) the karoke! Lol. So far so good, hope they keep up the good work.
