I have ate hear several times over the years. Great place for burgers. I placed a to go order but when got there to pick it up after the time they gave me they had not started it yet. Had to wait another 15 minutes. Maybe just short handed on this day?

My husband and I had best chicken burger ever! He had the Buffalo Chicken and I had the Southwestern Chicken Burger. We split our burger so we could tast both. Can't decide which one we liked best. Both were delicious. First of all we had a difficult time deciding if we wanted a beef burger, fish or chicken. Their menu... More

We always go to River City Cafe on our first night in Myrtle Beach. Great choice of burgers, a fun, casual atmosphere and reasonable prices. Always have a good bit of fun every time we go. Highly recommend. Family friendly as well. Enjoy!!

We always seem to go to River City Cafe while in Myrtle Beacj. If you like hamburgers, you'll love this place. They have just about any kind and therefor could please anyone. I had the chilli cheeseburger and had to eat it with a fork! Too big to pick up. Delicious!

The burgers were pretty good and prices were fair. The server was attentative and friendly. There was no wait to be seated (6 pm on a Wednesday) and the wait for food was not very long at all. It kind of has a dive bar vibe with license plates and signatures covering the walls and peanut shells on the floor.

Before we even moved to the area, we came to the one on 21st Ave. It's the best, as far as we are concerned. They have other locations that we've to and just something better about this one. Always friendly and fun employees. Some have been there for as long ago as we can recall. The food and drinks are... More

We were lucky to have a River City Cafe adjacent to our hotel, Sand Dunes Resort and Spa. We usually eat at a River City Cafe whenever we vacation in Myrtle Beach. Its one of our destination stops. Each time I try a new burger. This time I had the continental burger which had bacon and egg on it. It... More

Paying for ambiance I guess, not great burgers that they tout as being so great. Service was good but I've had much better burgers at Five Guys.

We enjoyed the atmosphere of eclectic stuff all over the restaurant, and throwing peanut shells on the floor. Plus, the food was amazing!
