Riverbay Roadhouse Steak & Seafood Family Restaurant
In February, 2010, Arnold resident Daniel Miller, owner of D.K. Miller Plumbing, purchased the building in Cape St. Claire shopping center formerly known as Bella’s Restaurant.
Raised in Cape St. Claire, Dan believed the community needed a good family steak and seafood restaurant. In May, 2010, the building was closed and renovations began. The entire interior was torn out and redesigned. In September, 2010, Riverbay Roadhouse Steak & Seafood Family Restaurant opened for business.
The fresh, clean, open space has walls with rustic wood paneling, and the new floors have a pleasingly worn look. The walls are covered with an assortment of memorabilia. Although a flat screen TV is never far from the interested spectator’s eye, the warmth of the dining room fireplace provides that home-style feeling and has the capacity to seat up to 114 guests. For special sporting events, there is a 130-inch projection screen, which also has the capability to screen family movies and special shows.
The brand-new state-of-the-art kitchen is ready to serve the freshest local catch of the day or melt-in-your-mouth prime, aged beef. Barbecue connoisseurs find a plethora of wing marinades and fall-off-the bone baby back ribs. Little ones choose from a kids’ menu.
The Sports Bar offers elevated tables, 10 flat screen TVs and the games Keno and Racetrax. On tap are 16 seasonal beers.
