This is one of my favorite spots to eat. It is a fine dining option in Yuma which is not a chain restaurant experience. The menu has an abundance of seafood options, but there are chicken, steak and other choices for those who are not fans of seafood. The Hot and Sour soup is great with it's addition of shrimp,...

Four of us Sat down for what we thoughtvwoukd be exceptional and very dissatisfied. Would not have been right to say in front of other diners how disappointed we were with the taste of our fish, soup too thick and bland. Coffee was good and water served flavorful. Meals served were not to our expectations. We will not return .

The Mustard Crusted Halibut was amazing and the gumbo was very good as well if you like spicy food (I do). The salads that came with the entrees were also delicious. I didn't think the price was too high for the quality of seafood they deliver.

I asked everyone in town for the best local Yuma restaurant and kept getting chain restaurants - Olive Garden, Texas Roadhouse etc. I wanted to eat in a local Arizona restaurant so I did my own research. I found reviews for the River City Grill and went there for dinner. Such amazing food and so many delicious choices. The staff... More

My husband, daughter & I love to eat in outside on the patio. Everything on the Menu is wonderful. We especially love the MUSTARD CRUSTED HALIBUT & CURRY Dish! The SERVICE here is exceptional! The last Server we had was so COMPETENT & ENTHUSIASTIC, we asked if she had worked for DISNEY! The only NEGATIVE Comment would be the DECORATION... More

This is a hidden gem, the patio seating is great although it was a bit warm for my taste. Once the food came though it was a whole new experience, the food was excellent and the beers were cold.

Set in an old house, the dining room is small, and expands to an outdoor patio. Friendly service in a rustic décor, the menu and the food is over the top delicious. I had fresh Alaskan Halibut served in a shrimp sauce over gnocchi which would compete with any 5 star restaurant in a Big City. The wine menu is... More
