They have so many different burgers to choose from and all four of us had a different one and they were all amazing! The atmosphere is very laid back which is nice if you're on vacation. We love seafood but River City Cafe was a nice change while we were on vacation.

THick juicy burgers, homemades french fries. Free peanuts. They are really cheap with their coleslaw and don't order the onion rings over the french fires. You'll only get 1 or 2 onion rings. They are not that big or that good for the money.

The view of the pier is great. Food was excellent and the "ambiance" is filled with peanut shells on the floor and mis matched tables and chairs. Love the relaxed atmosphere for sure.

Had lunch here today. Slow season meant fewer customers. Substituted turkey for our burgers, which was a pleasant surprise. Sandwiches were excellent and large. Deep fried zucchini was excellent. This is not a romantic place, and do not expect anything exotic. But we were all pleased with our orders.

The wife and I always enjoy a trip to the River City Cafe. We've tried three locations but the one in Surfside Beach is our favorite. All have same good food

Personally I like the standard cheeseburger and an ice cold PBR here best. Nothing fancy but very well prepared imo. We've tried specialty burgers and w/ exception to the wing sauce on the buffalo chicken sammie (didn't care for) we've always had a great meal. Our neighbors love the turkey burger and it's on my list to try next. My only nit with some of the specilty burgers is they come piled 6" high and thats no small chore to take on.

Great seaside location in Surfside. Very casual. Menu may be limited for some but I never tire of fresh, well prepared burgers so I'm always happy here.

All the peanuts you can eat for free. Whats not to like.
