The food was excellent but the service was poor. I have been to River City Café several times and the last two times have been disappointing.

Arrived in Myrtle Beach for a weekend getaway. Decided to walk around near our hotel to find something to eat. Although this is somewhat a chain (they have a few locations) the place was good.

On our way to beach stopped in to have lunch. Warmly greeted and seated. Casual dining, best burger ever, and wait staff was prompt and accommodating.

We had a fabulous lunch at River City. I had the mahi sandwich and my husband had a burger. Both were excellent. The sweet potato fries were good too. Our server, Emily, was attentive and friendly. A fun place!

You normally can't go wrong with a restaurant that allows you to put peanut hulls on the floor! Great burgers and fries. Can't go wrong. Decent prices as well.

Very interesting atmosphere. Very large selection of delicious hamburgers. Friendly staff. Don't go during bike week - very, very noisy. Otherwise, grab a patio seat if possible.
