Unpretentious, but just what you need at the beach or poolside! Great burgers...fair price. However their chairs aren't very comfortable.

After several years' absence from the Carolina Coast, we returned to Murrell's Inlet and River City Cafe, and found it to be the same casual, fun place with the same great-tasting burgers. There are now several River City Cafe's and the owners apparently have other restaurants along the Grand Strand, but this still feels like a local dive. Loved the... More

We go every year on vacation. Our kids love it. They love the food and atmosphere (writing their name on the walls, and throwing peanut shells on the floor). The food is ALWAYS good. The fried mushrooms and RC burger is our favorite.

Fun atmosphere, great burgers. We tried Mac and Cheese burger and Surf and Turf burger and were both very happy! Large portion sizes, couldn't finish mine but my husband did because it looked so good. Hostess and waiter very nice! Onion rings are great but huge! Very good!

This was a recommendation from a Facebook friend. So, we decided we must try. I have to admit after coming to Myrtle Beach for a gazillion years and driving by this place, we always thought it was a dive bar. It looks rather rickety from the outside. I'd never have thought it would have been a family friendly burger joint!... More

No frills actually adds up to be quite an enjoyable experience. Beach food with a twist and a cool one.... a perfect way to spend an hour out of the midday heat.

Got the cheese lover burger with bacon... JUST DO IT! Great burger. Argh... I gotta write more. Wasn't what I had good enough... Straight and to the point, why do I need to keep writing.

We go back every year, when we visit S.C. This is a VERY casual place and very eclectic. Decorated with donated used license plates, it is fun to see where everyone is from. Try some of the burgers! They are wonderful. The blooming onion is wonderful too. It is a must try!
