“Not diet friendly”
Reviewed August 16, 2014 via mobile

Atmosphere is really nice, and service is great. I just wanted a burger and fries, and a piece of pie. The only burger they serve is half a pound! Got the BLT, and didn't realize they don't come with mayonnaise. So, not terrible but certainly not great.

“Great place for breakfast”
Reviewed August 5, 2014

Everyone in our party enjoyed what they ordered. I had an omelette ($9.25) which was scrumpous and enough for two people. The coffee was hot and our cups were kept filled. We will visit again when we are in the area.

“Fantastic Home Made Comfort Food! Great Servers & Neat Decor”
Reviewed March 16, 2014

River City Diner is the place to go when you are looking for a great home cooked meal. Their menu has a wonderful variety of choices in all categories from appetizers, entrees to deserts. There's the great bar that serves anything from specialty beers to cocktails, anything you want! They offer specials that always have something not on the regular menu too.

If you like a soup with a seafood twist, try the Red Pepper Crab soup! The entrée items range from an array of tasty hamburgers and hotdogs to comfort food dishes like Crab Cakes, Meat Loaf, Chopped Sirloin, Pot Roast even Liver. Then there's their Pasta dishes from traditional Baked Spaghetti to Chicken Alfredo. There's also plenty of great sandwiches too, from an excellent Ruben to traditional hoagies. Their breakfast choices are fantastic too, all the traditional stuff from eggs to pancakes to French toast. Their desert choices range from pies and cakes to ice cream and shakes. The menu has so much variety there's something for everyone!

The service is great and friendly and it's all in a setting of a 50's diner, what else could you want! Great home made food, super service and a fun nostalgic setting.

“Courteous service, good food”
Reviewed March 12, 2014 via mobile

Quick stop off I-95 for lunch. I had the chili, hubby had the reubin sandwich and soup of the day, both were good, would stop in again when passing thru. Decor was fun also.

“Always fun to visit”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

I really enjoy the vintage motorcycles on display. It's nice to know when bikers are welcome. The wait staff is friendly.
