Our History
A number of interesting events culminated to create the Judge's Riverside Restaurant we have today. For the original history, read below. For more recent history, including the floods that caused the current remodel, click here.
Located on the majestic banks of the Catawba River, Judge's Riverside Restaurant serves up a rich variety of inside and outside dining, hickory smoked meats, homemade vegetables and mouth watering sweets.
Creator and proprietor, Russ Fulenwider, named the award-winning restaurant after his father, Judge Verbon Fulenwider, one of Morganton's first successful restaurateurs.
Constructed on the foundation of the the old Morganton Riverside Fish Camp, the new Judge's comfortably seats 150 people and averages 400 to 600 customers daily.

The open interior, complete with vaulted ceilings, and native construction materials, is complemented with an assorted variety of plants, antiques, original artwork and spectacular views.
