It was my brother in law’s bday. They saw the presents come in, brought him a dessert on the house with a candle in it because he didn’t order dessert. The service was attentive and friendly but not intrusive. Food was delicious. Perfect birthday brunch.

Everything was great except my entree salad. Ordered the Thai beef salad with peanut dressing. If there was 1 oz of steak I was lucky. And there was nothing else but greens, and not a lot. For $24 dollars I was taken to the cleaners. The others in my party order the salmon piccata which was great. Large piece of salmon and risotto. I would go back but would order differently.

Service was great. Scallop special was just perfect. My husband enjoyed his Marsala. Even the key lime pie was (almost) as good as the one I make.


A really enjoyable evening. Again.

My friend and I were charged a higher price for our pasta than was listed on the menu. When I questioned it after receiving our check, the waiter said that the chef said that it was a mistake on the menu. But in stead of apologizing and changing the price on our check, the waiter said (in a way that made him seem very put out), "If you really want me to change it, I can TRY to." What?? This is terrible customer service. It should have been changed immediately. We will never return to the restaurant because of this.

We do apologize for the misprinted price on the menu for your pasta. We have gone ahead and changed the menu to reflect the correct price of $24, instead of $23 that was printed. In addition, we will make sure to issue a refund of both of your credit cards for $1 each. We truly apologize for the mistake.

Food was good but pasta was under salted. You cannot make up for that by adding salt or cheese after it's cooked

This place was very good with great service and delicious food. Ate outside with great old fashioned music like Dean Martin and Frank Sinatra. Great restaurant week menu and I had forgotten about this place but will be back. Delicious cocktail by the way! It met my standards for delicious salmon (which I had picatta) and outstanding bread pudding for dessert!

River City is one of those places that not many know about, but they should. It’s solid. Delicious, great service and a nice ambiance. We went for restaurant week and they have one of the best offerings. Many choices and they are all very good.

We went on a Saturday during Restaurant Week. Appitizers were very good. Vinegared Pork Chop was tasty but tough - disappointing. Seafood Risotto was Good. Bead Pudding & Key Lime pie were Good but not great. A new charge was included on the bill, "For the Kitchen". This amount we deducted from our 20% Gratuity. We eat out often. This was the 1st time we saw this charge. I personally resent such a charge. Just raise the prices if necessary Do not surprise your guests when they get the bill! Terrible!

River City Grille
Responded on 18 May 2021

Thanks so much for joining us for Restaurant Week. We appreciate all feedback and apologize for the pork chop being tough. We are always happy to replace anything that is not up to our high standards. As for the 3% "For the kitchen" charge...this goes directly to the kitchen staff who are not allowed by law to share tips. It is visibly written on the back of our menu and as we note there, we are happy to remove it if anyone is uncomfortable with it. Sorry you did not see the note on the menu.

River City is consistently a great place to dine. Bobby is very attentive to his diners and the food is prepared perfectly every time. The restaurant has outdoor dining with heaters for those diners still shy of dining indoors. The menu has something for everyone. We've been going to River City for years and never disappointed.

Great service, just ok food. We made a reservation at opening (5pm Friday night) but throughout the entire dinner the place was mostly empty. The bread was ok, my entree was Chicken Parm. The chicken was super thin but you got 2 breast filets. The side pasta (which I can only guess was large Cannelloni) was the rubberiest pasta I ever tasted. Don't know if it was overcooked or just bad, but I couldn't eat any it. My kids had the pasta with marinara and meatball. You would think kids pasta is spaghetti... but no, it was penne for some reason? My Mom got a burger but she said it was dry and overcooked.

The service on the other hand was great. Our waitress was nice and chatty and very attentive. Unfortunately the food was just ok... and the entrance was weird. You have to walk through the parking lot of the strip mall and around a large bamboo fence just to find your way in. Was hoping for something better, maybe even an actual view of the river at "The River City Grill" but no, it's 9-10 blocks east of the water.

Kudos to the chef for knowing how to cook fish to perfection. Our salmon and grouper dishes were absolutely delicious! We'll definitley be back to sample more. While the service was most attentive, the outdoor dining arrangement was less than ideal, being situated next to a busy main road and overlooking a rather unattractive auto shop parking lot. However, the quality of the food more than made up for this shortcoming.

Dinner with friends. We are still choosing to eat outdoors so the ambience in the parking lot was the. Eat under the circumstances!
I’m sure it’s lovely inside. Everything we ate was very good and the service was very nice. We will come back!!!
