“Very nice restaurant--excellent food & service.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013 via mobile

Excellent food & service. Used Trip Advisor recommendations as we do not live in Ormond Beach, and we were not disappointed. Lovely view in addition to a very good meal.

“Nice Location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013

We ate at the River Grill twice on this trip. Excellent service and good food both times. We were a large group (12) but were all seated together (once on the patio overlooking the river). The restaurant is in a lovely location and especially inviting at sunset. Highly recommend for seafood.

“Enjoyable all around!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

We have been to the River Grille a few times, but haven't reviewed it lately. We enjoyed our meal, as always and the prices are reasonable. The fish of the day was Cod although our waiter was not as informative as the waiter serving the table next to us. We over heard the details! Our waiter was nice and efficient but could have informed us of certain details and or offered suggestions. Service is what makes or breaks a restaurant. We both had the fish, the sandwich is huge. It comes with fries. The fish dinner comes with fries, slaw and a hush puppie. For the price difference both selections have a huge portion of fish. So if you don't want all the other stuff, the sandwich is a good choice and cheaper. The drink selection is good, soft drinks, beer etc.

They offer seating inside and out. The covered porch has fans to help with the heat we have here in Florida. They have docking for boats traveling the river that may want to stop and eat or drink. They also have a sizeable bar.

Our experience was enjoyable and the food excellent. My only concern is that the wait staff is not always the best. We have been there before and have experienced both good and poor wait staff. This visit it was average.

“Good food and good service on the river”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

We took a family of 5 adults and 2 children to the River Grill. The service staff was very friendly and helpful. Our waitress checked on us frequently and interacted with the kids in a very nice manner. The food was very good, and there were several different menu items ordered. While waiting for one's food, you can go out on the great deck and look at the river. Some guests arrived by boat. Our granddaughter saw the sign warning not to feed the gator and decided she would go inside....quickly! It was a very enjoyable experience for all ages in our group.

“Wonderful Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

We've never written a review before, but just wanted to say we thoroughly enjoyed our 29th Anniversary Date Night! Our server was wonderful and we loved the outside deck atmosphere! I got the Blackwater Seafood Combo and my husband the Dockside Combo. Both were very flavorful & delicious! We loved our meal and plan on coming back again next year while camping in the area!
