“Awesome food and views.”

Great food and it is right on the beach. This place is well worth the wait time. We can't wait to go back.

“The best Cheeseburgers!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012

We eat here several times a year! I always get the cheese lovers burger and absolutely love it. They also have awesome ranch dressing. When you arrive they will give you peanuts to eat and throw on the floor. During the busy season they open the top (3rd) floor where Latitude 21 was once at, both floors have a great view. I like to sit at the bar on the 3rd floor and watch the sunset while having a cold one and a great cheeseburger!

“So unclean it's scary”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

We went to this location to have a couple of drinks and some late lunch. The tables were so filthy we couldn't touch them. We tried moving to a clean table but it seemed that they just don't clean tables here. They all had buildup of dirt and grease and bird droppings. In the end, our hunger lost out to self-preservation. Maybe the burgers are good but we will never know...

“Disappointed”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2012

River City restaurants are supposed to be casual, but this one is bordering on skeevy. Chairs are very uncomfortable and tables always seem to be dirty. The view is nice if you can sit outside, but not worth the price for the discomfort. Help is great and food is okay. Time for a remodeling!
