This was our first visit to River City Cafe while vacationing in Myrtle Beach. We have heard many great reviews so we decided to check it out. The food was delicious and the service was good. We will definitely eat here again!

This small restaurant is great for families and right by the beach. It has a great fun decor and you can eat peanuts and throw the shells on the ground. The kids loved that. They are known for their burgers and we were all pleased with ours. The service was good too.

The kids loved coloring on the tables. They thought it was sooo funny throwing peanut shells on the floor. My Dad tried, but could not finish the kitchen sink burger. Solid effort!

Awesome place to eat. We go there every time we visit the beach. Good food, friendly staff and casual atmosphere. It's always a long wait in the evening. Go for early dinner or late lunch.

We stopped in for a quick bite to eat. The food was good but service was very slow. I had the pimento burger and he had the mac n cheese burger which was so so. The fried grouper appetizer was good.
