We love our RCG and dine here often, one upgrade that would be so appreciated is good bread . .... Breadsticks.... Tapenade .... Something to keep us busy for the excellent entrées ...dumb those boring rolls.

My husband and I dropped in for lunch today and were not disappointed. I ordered the Portebello Burger which was very good and my husband had the Big Dip. He said the roast beef was very tender and we both enjoyed the homemade chips. Our server was very pleasant.

It is always a treat to eat at the River City Grill. They use organic produce from Worden Farms and all meals are well prepared. The menu has a variety of gluten free choices and staff are always willing to check ingredients for us.

Always good .. Mary the hostess is wonderful. Only issue that I have is that they do not offer fresh local caught fish.

Though this place would be good based on the reviews. I was disappointed by both the service, and the food. The shift change was going on and nobody knew who had what tables, 4 different people kept telling us "someone will be right with you" I had to go to the bar to get drinks which made it look like...
