Tasty Burger!

Stopped in for a quick bite to eat. The waitstaff was very polite and seated us promptly. I had the Carolina Chili Cheeseburger and sweet potato waffle fries - it was very good!

Burgers, but not that special. This is a better place to grab a beer when you 're at Barefoot Landing. Both my son and I had upset stomachs after eating here.

Had the cheeseburger which was good and fries. Service was lacking.Nobody seem to know about seating. Most disturbing was the woman's bathroom on 2nd floor, Bad, asked if there was another and they pointed to public restroom. My husband ordered sandwich and chili. Never got chili and when the waitress came back she said he hadn't ordered it.. nice ocean... More

Went to the Surfside location which is right on the beach and shared an order of chicken wings before getting a burger. These wings were fantastic, nice and juicy and spiced the way you want them, they always use fresh chicken and not frozen like other restaurants do. The burgers were awesome and cooked medium rare (the way I like... More

We go to River City on Shore Drive every time we come to Myrtle Beach. Wide variety of burgers to choose from. Excellent food. Good beer selection. Fast, friendly service. Sometimes can get very busy so plan accordingly. Very kid friendly.
