“Great fried seafood.”
Reviewed October 30, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Great food -- excellent fried appetizers. Best bread pudding on the north side. Really a great wait staff and management team. We've used the private room -- with the two huge flat screens twice. This place is awesome.

“Top-Notch Seafood Menu Selections”
Reviewed October 22, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

River City Grill is a very enjoyable (and popular) establishment in San Antonio. Menu choices were widely varied and all seem to be quite well prepared. The wait staff is pleasant and attentive. When crowded, the noise level can be a bit high, but nothing out of the ordinary for a dining spot of its type. It also features some elevated tables at which the patrons sit on higher chairs, which makes for a more interesting experience.

“Best Bread Pudding”
Reviewed October 12, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

if you ever need bread pudding - this is the place to go. You need to order this for dessert!!!
We went just for this and keep going back for a night cap.

“Great Service and Food”
Reviewed September 23, 2013 via mobile

After our first visit to the restaurant, we can unequivocally say that we'll return. From the spicey (but not too much so) fried shrimp appetizer to excellent entrees (fish tacos and grilled mahi mahi) to the die-for bread pudding dessert, the meal was nothing short of super. Add in the superb performance, knowledge, and attentiveness of our server, Brianna, the experience was certainly a bring-us-backer. Our rating is actually a 4.75, with a .25 deduction for not offering a darker draft beer (i.e. Shiner Bock, Zeigenback) heftier than Blue Moon or Bud. All in all a very enjoyable dining experience.

“Just Like New Orleans”
Reviewed September 16, 2013 via mobile

The name does not suggest cajun food. However, they have very good po boys! The fried oyster nachos are interesting but I think I would go with the calamari next time. Everything that walked by on the way to other tables liiked fantastic!
