“Not a good place to work”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2013

lived her for years and finally went there with my northern visitors. Had a waiter name Ryan whom was excellent. He recommended several dishes to us which we loved alligator bites being one of them. My friend had the special that night which was seafood mac and cheese and it was excellent and full of different seafood. I felt that the food was fresh and worth the money and would go back and or recommend. Im ryan the server mentioned here the management is very unprofessional and very deceiving and could care less about there employees the best thing that ever happened to me here was leaving this horrible workplace it's gossip central and the only employees that last are the ones that sleep with management. The kitchen is dirty the fish isn't fresh and the specials are all food about to go bad. I had the highest sales in this workplace and was let go over jealousy and here say don't support local business's that don't stay loyal to their workers

“What a very pleasant lunch!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2013

Easy access off Hwy 1 ... plenty of parking and very clean grounds ... always a good sign! Staff was very friendly and efficient. Lovely view from deck over river. Nice selection of lunch options -- sandwiches were very good - specifically the cheese steak and turkey club. Reasonably priced for quality and quantity and I will certainly go back again and again.

“Great view, great service, good food.... nice!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013

My husband & I have eaten here several times over the past few years and have always enjoyed ourselves. You know you have found a good spot when the "locals" gather for their dinners as well.
They have expanded their extensive outdoor seating and the view is quite nice over the river. The traffic on US 1 can be hectice at moments, but disappears into the distance with the great surroundings.
Their menu is extensive with salads, sandwiches, appetizers, steak & seafood and the usual landlubber's cuisine. All choices seemed to be priced appropriately, with good size servings. Their hushpuppies appetizer is delicious!! If you "like" them on facebook, you will also see their continual food & drink specials for your next visit.
River Grille has become a definite dinner spot for us to visit when in the Daytona Beach area, and we will be back again!

“Great Food and company”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

We went to this restaurant two times and found the service and food to be exceptional. The Ribs were fall off the bone. The only problem we found was the cake was to dry.

“Great lunch with a nice river view.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

My wife and I had lunch at the River Grille. It is in a beautiful location overlooking the river. It was a beautiful day to have lunch outside on the deck. There our stairs going down to a dock where boats tie up to come in for lunch. I had fish and chips and my wife had shrimp, slaw and fries. Two hush puppies came with each of our meals. One of the local coupons in the hotel had another coupon for six hush puppies if you bought two entrees....a good deal as the hush puppies were great....even warmed up in the oven the next day. My only complaint was that the breading on the fish was pretty thick and the fish were pretty thin. The waitresses were efficient and attentive. We highly recommend this restaurant.
