I have been going to River City Cafe for the better part of 15 years, every time I go down to Myrtle Beach on vacation. It is always a good experience at a good price. This last trip I decided to try the Kitchen Sink Burger and WOW it is huge. It tasted great but I could not finish it.... More

This is a fun place for the whole family. It's loud and usually crowded but kinda what makes it fun. Rowdy kids can't really annoy anyone. Burgers and grouper sandwich are really good

Excellent food, prices and view. Atmosphere is casual and a bit messy with the peanuts all over creation.

This place and the one in Surfside is always on point. We come to this one when the one in Surfside is busy. The burgers are always great as are the cheese sticks. The service is always good too. If your looking for something casual and to heavy on the pocket this is the place.

We stopped for lunch, found great food. We were seated quickly, the service was fast and friendly. Our orders were correct and the food was good. My daughter tried the California Pizza Burger, and for a picky eater, she enjoyed it.

Great burgers. Close by, and has a lot of good food on the menu that I've eaten. Good place to hang out with friends and family for even a beer.

Looking at this restaurant from the outside, we were reluctant to go in. But this was recommended to us by a family member and we did. Inside it is rustic and colorful, with the walls lined with license plates. Graffiti is all over the walls and ceilings--this is not fine dining. When we looked at the menu we saw lots... More
