There are many reasons that River City Grill is simply the best restaurant In Punta Gorda, Fl. First, the happy hour. My wife and I like their house pinot grigio.

Not knowing where to dine I thought I'd try this spot. The food was very good, prepared well and complimented with very capable and friendly service. I thoroughly enjoyed my dinner and would return to try other menu offering. Punts Gorda pleasantly surprised me with their quaint little town.

Good central restaurant with easy parking. Overall our experience was average based on reasonable food at average prices. Good atmosphere if you can get a table close to the bar. Would dine again but choose something more adventurous maybe.

EVERTHING is great. Best burger I've ever had made from locally sourced beef. Then there's the Salmon wrapped in Phyllo... Well, I have to cut this short and go there now that I'm thinking about it, but before I go, make a reservation! This place is rockin' year round.

We dined alfresco, because of the portico we smelled no noxious car or truck exhaust. We were truly able to enjoy the magnificent Florida wether.

Our family had our evening meal at the River City Grill recently. We used their advertised BOGO (buy one get one) menu and were very happy. They have a wide selection on their menu and all six of us were able to choose exactly what we desired. The food was well prepared and presented. The price was approximately half of... More
