“Love The Setting”
Reviewed August 5, 2013

Don't let the outside appearance stop you from going in and eating. The food was good, people extremely friendly and within a block's walk to the beach.

“Good value, fun for kids!”
Reviewed July 27, 2013

We went in without expectations, and we really enjoyed the "ambience" of this restaurant. With a small child, she enjoyed being able to throw peanut shells on the floor. She also enjoyed being able to write on the paper table cloth and on the license plates on the walls. it was great fun for her. The portions are large, and the value is good. My disappointment was in the fact that they refused to cook a burger rare or even medium rare. The burgers were all prepared at least at "medium", thus the burger was gray inside. What could have been a great burger, was not. The service was a bit slow.

“Great Burgers and Great Service”
Reviewed July 23, 2013

I was at Myrtle Beach last week on vacation and visited River City Cafe twice. The one in Murrells Inlet is hands down the best one. The burger was great, the service was awesome. Our waitress was very friendly and helpful. The manager Jerry was also very courteous and friendly. I work in the restaurant industry as an Area Manager and it takes a lot to impress me and this was one of those times. If you are ever in the area you should take the time to eat at River City Cafe for the best burger and atmosphere.

“Lots of awesome burgers!”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

Glad we stopped here for a late lunch on our first trip to Murrells Inlet. Hubby had the black & blue and I had the Swiss & mushroom. Both were enjoyable and huge on a soft tasty bun. The waitress was very attentive, filling our glasses as needed. Meal was served on their special RCC wax paper plates. We also shared chili cheesy fries, which were quite tasty too. Atmosphere was sooo laid back with peanut shells on the floor, paper as tablecloths and cool license plates all over the walls and ceilings. Def would go again! Don't pass up on how it looks from the outside.
