My wife and I moved to N. Myrtle Beach 2 months ago and have ordered hamburgers in almost every pub/restaurant and haven't found a really good one until now. The burgers are quite large but more importantly they are the best we have had. Pickles, onions, cheese. So much flavor...I highly recommend. The unsweetened ice tea was great with free... More

WOW ! WHAT A BURGER ! that'll be coming out of your mouth when you see , taste this food ! Homemade onion rings the size of your hand , fried mushrooms are fantastic. Peanuts are free , and you can throw the shells on the floor. If you have allergies to nuts you may want to choose elsewhere. .... More

Our trip wouldn't be the same if we didn't visit River City Café. We LOVE the Darlington 500 fried bologna sandwich!

We have gone to River City Cafe every time we are in Myrtle Beach. Why? Because it's got great food at a good price! My husband had a BBQ burger & I had a grilled chicken sandwich. Server was good, but seemed to busy to keep up with everyone's order correctly.

A variety of burger and burger toppings are on the menu. The burger itself was amazingly good. A friend ordered what turned out to be a massive salad with chicken that was also quite tasty.

Our extended group (4 adults 4 Kids) went to this restaurant on our last beach day. I was a block over from boardwalk. We loved it. Everybody had a different type of burger. I recommend the mac and cheese burger. My brother had the Kitchen sink. Everything comes on this, but the kitchen sink. They were busy but our waitress... More
