I was there today for lunch with my 2 teenage boys. The service, Rebecca, was good. The food came within a reasonable amount of time. Both boys had burgers and they were huge and apparently delicious because they woofed them right down. I had the cajun Mahi sandwich and it was Amazing!!!

This review is for River City Cafe @ Murrell's Inlet. Our server was Ava -- she was very energetic and friendly. We had a later dinner so there was no wait which was awesome as well.

We stopped for dinner my son is vegetarian and they had a veggie burger he really liked. I had the Reuben and my husband had the cheese burger. The cole slaw is very good with the fries to have a deluxe meal. Just off the beach a quick walk.

A great spot for a burger and fries. Appetizers or other sandwiches. Free roasted peanuts while you wait. I would have rated it better but the beer is not very cold. Also we did not have any wifi service.

This is a great place to eat. Great atmosphere, great service and best of all great food. We had the onion rings to start with. The were as good as they were big! They use fresh, not frozen beef, for the burgers, which has great flavor. Definitely a must eat place in Myrtle beach area.

They serve shelled peanuts that the kids (and big kids) like throwing at each other. The food was good. Waitress was super friendly and patient with the wild bunch we had.

Thank Chazlyn
