We're glad you agree that a beautiful view is best paired with delicious food and a refreshing margarita—thanks for the short and sweet review! Hope you can stop by soon to soak up the sights and grab a bite.

Cheers,

The manager, Kathy Dugan is really on the ball. She bends over backwards to make your dining 100%. The meal was amazing!

“Really well done”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2013

Have eaten at RCG many times and have not been disappointed. Try the onion rings, some of the last hand breaded, not frozen, ones you will find. The food is interesting, varied and there is something for everyone. Not pretentious or stuffy, just a comfortable setting, friendly staff, great view and really good food. The view from inside, or the deck is the best in town. Live music also adds to the scene.

The staff were great, good service. I ordered the Pecan Crusted Talapia and it was horrible. The talapia was very fishy tasting, not cooked well, and the supposely orange basil sauce was not existent. My friend ordered salmon and it had to go back to be cooked more. Have eaten there before and food was great.

Paula, we're surprised and disappointed to hear that you and your friend were so let down by our Tilapia and Salmon. As you know from previous experiences, poorly-cooked food is not our standard. Would you mind letting us know the date of your visit so we can follow up with the kitchen? Just shoot us an email to rcg@nctv.com. We hope that this one off-day won't color your impression of us for good. Thank you for your time and feedback!

“Great Views, Pleasent Staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2013

Arrived, as most, sans reservations. Waited 30 minutes to be seated. Waited another 30 minutes to be waited on. When things got going, the chicken quesadilla appetiser, was hot and tasty, the salsa fresh with just the right amount of heat. The rest of the dinner went well, the food hot arriving in a timely manner. The wait staff was attentive without hovering. At the end of the meal, we ordered a chocolate/chocolate cake to take home. Unfortunatly, we didn't check at the restaurant, so it wasn't until sometime later that we found that we had been given a desert chimichanga instead of the desired cake. The tortilla on the chimi was very tough, the candy bar in the center, hard. These sort of things have dropped River City Grille from one of our top 5 to "What else is open".

We're sorry to hear that your most recent visit had some unexpected hiccups. We can get busy at times, but we do our best to make sure everything runs as smoothly as possible. It is unusual that you had to wait 30 minutes to be waited on — we'll be checking in on this. As for your dessert, we apologize for the mix-up. Unfortunately, mistakes do happen occasionally, and we regret that this took away from your experience. Having been in your Top 5 before, we know we can do better, and we hope we'll have the chance to show you that soon. If you have any other feedback, though please feel free to get in touch at rcg@nctv.com. Thank you!
