“Dining on the River”
Reviewed March 19, 2013

We have visited River Grille in Ormond Beach many times and always have great service and very good food. Our favorite server is Stephanie when she is working, but in her absence others have been very attentive as well. This past visit was a real test as we took our boat club of 20 people. I called in the afternoon to see if they could accomadate us and was told to call an hour before we wanted to come. Upon arrival (this was Bike Week) the parking lot was full of bikes and we had this sinking feeling that we were in for quite a wait. To our surprise, (compliments to the management) they had our table ready in the back dining area so we could all be together and were seated in less than 5 minutes. Our server was excellent and took drink orders , then food orders in a very timely manner. More cuodos to the staff in that all the food came out within minutes of each other for all 20 people. This does not happen often when dealing with a large group. If you go try the Muddy Water drink, very tropical and good. Even the request for seperate checks for couples did not faze our server. This will continue to be a favorite on our list.

“Nice view”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

Good seafood with a view, just south of I-95 on US-1. Outside seating is a must this time of year. Service is fast and the wait staff is very friendly. This is a good place to try if passing thru the area.

“Would definately be, a be back”
Reviewed January 30, 2013

Out driving, we plugged seafood into the Magellan and the River Grille came up first and the closest, so we said why not. We opted to sit outside on the lower deck, which is a beautiful view. Keep in mind you are right along US1 and as we found out also a train but when all was quiet it was lovely.
My husband ordered the chicken panini special and I got the fish tacos, and added an order of the onion rings. The bite I had of the panini was delicious and the tacos were light and held together well. My only thought, maybe have the chef make a special sauce, like the cajun sauce that came with the rings.
