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!

Have been here multiple times, this is a throwback to the old beach restaurants, no frills, wood floors strewn with peanut shells, decorated with license plates from all over the world. Great comfort food restaurant, excellent burgers with wide variety of combinations that can also be substituted with chicken, some very unique. The fried zucchini with avocado ranch is excellent....

Best hamburger in Myrtle Beach. some strange hamburger concoctions on the menu and we tried them and they were terrific. Went back the next night and it was just as good. A MUST see

This place is VERY casual. We stumbled into it based on reviews when we couldn't get in elsewhere on Murrell's Inlet. It was the only restaurant from our vacation that the kids wanted to go BACK to again! The food was very good - definitely hamburgers, not seafood - and the service was fine. I wish they would at least... More

I love River City Cafe and have eaten at their different locations several times. We tried to order take out tonight. We called and was put on hold waiting for someone to pick up and take our order, after waiting we got disconnected. We then tried to call back 15 times and the line was busy every time. It seems...
