Went to Punta Gorda for the day and had lunch in the city grill, and I must say it was one of the best this holiday. We both had the Boulognese with 3 meats. The server was helpful and filled the drinks up before they were finished.

I think the River City Grill is very consistent in food quality. I have eaten lunch as well as dinner and never been disappointed.

This is a popular spot and on the Friday evening we visited it was packed with a 45 minute wait. We had drinks at the bar while waiting with friends. The wines and beer were reasonably priced which is always good if you are going to wait for an extended period of time. My wife had the scallop entree and... More
