Rainy Sunday Breakfast

Well, I figured this was a good place when I rounded the corner and saw folks waiting outside in the rain. It was very busy, but since I was willing to eat at the bar I was seated immediately. It took few minutes for my waitress to see me, but once she took my order she was responsive to all... read more

We were visiting Radford University and looked to Trip Advisor for suggestions. This place was a real find. Everyone had a tasty lunch: veggie melt with sweet potato tots, BLT and the chicken tender sandwich. Very reasonable prices and friendly staff. We would stop here again.

Late lunch on a cool blustery Saturday afternoon. At 1:30pm, it was still very crowded with not a table in sight. After a wait of only 3-4 minutes, a table opened up and we were seated for our first meal at River City Grill. I must say, each of us were favorably impressed. The Fish Fry or the West End... More

The River CityGrill has awesome food and offers a great breakfast all day long. A must to try if you're in the city of Radford or surrounding counties.

Ok, I put down that this is one of the best meals I've ever had in a restaurant... to preface that.. I'm talking places under 30/person. That being said my wife and I have had lunch here a couple of times and I must say that it is oustanding. It's definately a surprise for a small place in the side... More

I've been to River City a couple of times now and realize more and more how great it is every time I go. The menu is incredible with an amazing selection. The wait was a little long but it was completely worth it. Great beer selection, too. Highly recommend it

I had a good grilled cheese (double-decker) sandwich and a side caesar salad. They were okay. It was nice to have so many options for a grilled cheese sandwich though. The lettuce int he salad was about to go bad and was a little wet. The atmosphere was great. It had a hip vibe with fun colors and an open... More

We got there really early in order to be able to get to our next "event." It's a good thing that we did, because service was very slow. They were busy, but our server seemed kind of "lost," on top of what must have been some kind of frenzy in the kitchen. I got a soup, chicken maybe, with not... More

First time using TA. Traveling and decided to check and see where to eat. We were greeted and seated promptly. The staff were very friendly and attentive. The food was home cooking at it's finest. Nothing fancy just delicious food. The mac and cheese bites were delicious, battered in a fried chicken batter, try them. Would definitly come again if... More

Very popular place; can be noisy. Since breakfast is served all day that is generally our choice. Food and service are very good. Blueberry pancakes and the club sandwich are my favorites.. Parking can be a problem
