River City has got awesome burgers and great fries. Very nice portion sizes for the price. The inside atmosphere is very casual utilizing graffiti and mismatched furniture as part of their motif, which I think is very appropriate for their style. However the outside porch should be screened, as the gulls and pigeons will invite themselves, to me not very sanitary. Overall if your looking for casual dining with an beautiful view of the Atlantic, and great burgers you won't be disappointed. Two can dine for $25.

We ordered two double burgers with fries. The bacon cheese burger came with no bacon or cheese both order of fries were over cooked and hard as rock. The waitress dropped our burgers and left and when we wanted to complain she was no where to be found, we had to ask another wait staff to find her which he did.We showed her the food after waiting 10 minutes for her to show up and she said she would talk to the manager when she came back they comped the one burger and fries but the manager never came by. We sat at a outside table which was miss matched yard sale type tables and chairs, the table had profanities written on it.We would try this chain again just not this location.

We were waiting and waiting to get into the restaurant. Poor planning on our parts had us going at the busiest time. However, after walking through the restaurant to locate a bathroom for my niece, we decided to punt and go elsewhere. Not only was the wait time long, the restaurant was FILTHY. I mean, "shoe sticking to the floor" filthy! I couldn't summon the courage to eat food made somewhere that was allowed to be that nasty and we chose to drive inland a bit instead.

I have numerous dietary issues due to illness and allergies. The manager made sure to listen to everything I had to say and he made a few suggestions. The result was a very yummy dinner in a very campy, beachy restaurant overlooking the ocean.
