(5 of us-We are not petite ppl by any means) We were asked to crowd at one table-4 topper)when there were plenty of other seating so another group could be seated at the table beside us.

Great burgers and great service!! I like the casual atmosphere of this place. The variety of burgers makes it difficult to choose! We ate here twice for a late afternoon lunch/early dinner. Both times our table of eight had a delicious meal.

Very casual. Peanut shells on the floor. Lots of hamburger choices. The burgers are really good but don't get the onion rings as a side. You only get 2 big rings --not enough. Order a blooming onion if you like alot of onion rings like I do.

This place would be great in the summer. Nice beachy feel, music, drinks fun. Unfortunately, we went in February and were the only people in the place. They did deliver on a great burger and fries however. Don't go here if you're looking for fine dining. This is a no frills burger joint. If that's what you're in the mood... More

First night in Myrtle Beach after a super long and cold ride from Albany, NY. We were very happy to follow up on a friends recommendation and went to the RiverCity Cafe. Couple River Ritas to shake off the chill hit the spot. Fresh peanuts while we waited for our meal. We skipped the appetizers, preferring to wait for the... More

There are better choices in myrtle beach for burgers but their onion rings are oversized and delicious. Definitely family friendly unless you have a family member with a peanut allergy, peanuts everywhere.
