The burger was very good and the location on the beach was great. Staff were very good if a little slow but overall good service. I love a burger that you can get egg on so am happy that was available and cooked properly. Will go again.

Visited River City Café at the recommendation of a work colleague. Great recommendation!!! They had the best burgers we have ever had, and they were huge! Onion rings were amazing as well! Very reasonably priced! Can't wait to go back!!!

Burgers are great, great atmosphere, especially for kids. They totally loved eating peanuts and throwing the shells on the floor while waiting for our meal. Parking can be a bit of a problem when they're crowded.

A friend and I found this gem during a trip to Myrtle Beach for Fall Bifefest last October. We live in Charleston and enjoy many places to go for good eats, and this local grill would be right at home there. During our initial visit we sat on the back patio overlooking the waterway, enjoying the warmth and the hospitality.... More

We had members of our group raving about River City Cafe, we decided to hit it on the way out of MB. It is so delicious! I had the angus burger and added bacon and mushrooms, felt bad for not finishing it, but it was huge! My mother proclaimed that she believes that was the best fries she has ever... More

What a great experience at this run-down looking place but with real character and charm. The staff there are very friendly. The hamburgers are truly the very best and anyone who is a vegetarian must go there for their amazing veggie burgers! Best place in town for sure.

The food is fantastic, the parking is tough, but you won't care because you'll love the food! A favorite of our group was the friend mac n' cheese burger. Also loved was the bacon cheese burger and the grilled mani salad. Everything was delicious! Service was great. They were extremely busy for lunch on a Monday. They did their best... More
