The River City Grill was recommended to us by our clients. We had a very relaxing and enjoyable evening with good food and wine. I enjoyed the short ribs served on risotto. The meat was very tender with good taste. The menu had something for everyone. The bar and wine list were very complete. Our wait staff was very attentive and knowledgeable. A must for a very relaxing evening with good food.

We weren't sure where to eat in downtown Punta Gorda when we stumbled in front of River City Grill, but we got lucky! Our waitress (Jessie) was delightful and very attentive. She made recommendations and wanted our input after dinner was over. The entrees were so yummy! Sauces that complemented the seafood just perfect. We would rate their desserts just average, but we will definitely keep this on our short list.

Picked a great night to check out this restaurant for the first time - the staff was in Halloween costumes. It was the Saturday night before Halloween - we had 8 pm reservations and were seated right away. Everyone looked great - it made for a really fun environment. Food wise, I was a little worried when we were served our dinner salads and rolls - pretty hum drum - but dinner - NY strip and scallops - were both delicious! The Bartenders Dessert - is a fabulous chocolate martini that is a perfect ending to a great meal.

Celebrated Halloween having dinner with three other couples. Very crowded, understaffed and our waitress was overwhelmed. Not the best night to eat there. Our dinner was Ok. Considering it was the last night of buy one get one free. I had the seafood cake (That was the special$ 19.95). It was good but was served luke warm as was my BF's Grouper $18.95. Both were tasty but if we did not have the special pricing we would not have been very happy. The other couples felt the
same. The fun was that trick or treaters (all ages) came in and out of the resturant in costume. Some were really bazzar.
