Great place for evening lunch. The green chile stew was excellant on a balmy day. Service was good too as well as the view.

Thanks for taking the time to leave your feedback. The green chile stew is great, especially on these cold, wintry days we've been having. Come see us again. More

Selection was not on the menu. Came because it was on the river and I thought I would get a view and fresh fish, or shrimp....Nope tasted like it came from a grocery store down the road! Cook must have been off cause everything we ordered seemed lacking in the seasoning department. We will not be back!

I'm sorry that you felt the food was lacking seasoning. We offer several fish dishes, and we just added a new seafood combo platter this week. We hope you'll change your mind and give us another try. More

The food choices were plentiful and they gave great alternatives if you're not in the mood to eat steak or meat. So, there's something for the whole family. Many of their items (if not all) were homemade. The rainbow trout was very good and so were the sides (Sweet potato, chile cream of corn, and green chile rice).

We're glad to hear that you enjoyed your meals and were given good alternatives. We take pride in the food we serve. The green chile creamed corn is a new side item. We've received lots of good feedback on that particular item. More

Food was high priced and not very good. Service was ok. Id have rather gone to the Chili's next store.

We're sorry that you were not impressed. We try to keep all of our menu items priced competitively with Chili's. We also offer lunch-sized portions at lunch-sized prices throughout the week. More

Six of us dined at the River City Grill. We all had a slightly different food experience, but my fish tacos were pretty disappointing. The fish was overcooked, dry, and tasteless; and the slaw and sauce didn't compensate. Our guests seemed to enjoy their meals, but no rave reviews were forthcoming. Service was adequate, but not spectacular. I agree with... More

The staff was very good and our waiter was excellant. Very good views of the water. Others in my party said the food was very spicy, but very good. My hamburg was very good and the fries were thick and good. Great Grille food.

Had reservations for a group of 20 on a Saturday night. They didn't have our tables set up and ready on time, but once we were seated, it was great! Food was good, as was the service! I had the fried shrimp with mashed potatoes. Both were to die for!!! Would order this over and over again!
