We ate lunch here and liked the food and atmosphere. The turkey burger was great as was the Mahi sandwich and fries. The portions were large and the prices good. Our server could have been better but it seemed most of the wait staff was very efficient--ours was either distracted or having a difficult day. We'd likely return if we're... More

We have nothing bad to say about River City Cafe in Murrells Inlet, SC! This is at least our 4th visit and we love it more and more everytime. The kids love writing on the walls & tables (& everywhere for that matter!), & we love the selection, food, & prices! We prefer this location to the other RCC's because... More

I visited the RCC surf side a couple of years ago and had a great turkey burger. It's a cool little place to go. On our recent stay in murells inlet we visited the one in this location. I feel like the burgers were just ok. My son got the peanut butter burger which was good but it seemed to... More

We've been going here for over 10 years. It's the best. Great food, a lot of fun, bring your old license plates and magic markers. Be sure to ask for Dawn, best waitress on the strand!

stopped in for lunch, so glad we did! the food was delicious but what made it so cool was the atmosphere! the brown paper covered tables with mismatched chairs, the writing on the walls (and ceilings), the great music that was on. It was just a super cool place to take the kids! We will be returning for sure!!

No matter where you're coming from, if you're in Murrell's Inlet, you MUST make a stop at River City Cafe. The peanuts will keep you refilling your drinks while you wait for dinner. Whether you're with a big group or it's just a party of one or two, you will enjoy watching the gang here! Always fun!

Best burger I've had in a long time! I've visited several different River a City cafes, but the one in Murrells Inley had so much charm. I highly recommend the cheese lovers burger, and well, pretty much any burger on the menu. The fries are super good too!
