Good filet and lobster.
The hubs for the filet and I got the lobster pasta special. The food was very good! It seemed a bit pricy for the atmosphere though. We went on a Friday night and sat by the window overlooking the water. Enjoyed the sunset, but there was a table of business men drinking heavily beside us that were loud and ruined the ambiance. Our server was excellent though. He was very attentive and helped us make our selections. I ordered a Sprite and then a Ginger Ale, but the soda machines were not working properly, so I settled for the water. We will return due to the steak being prepared perfectly medium and the lobster being prepared well too, but will request a more private location for seating. The service was above the bar!

Enjoyed our dinner outside
Enjoyed our dinner outside on the patio with a great view of the river. I tried the shrimp and grits and was glad I decided to give this dish a try. It was so delicious! Will be back next time we are in the area.

Improved menu, quality, & service
The last time we ate here was about three years ago. He first thing we noticed was the more diverse menu. The service was also more attentive. Jamal was our waiter, and he was very good. He new the menu well, and was well aware of our desires to know when, and when not, to service us.
The food was also much improved. Our last experiences were kind of flat. Then, the food was not so memorable. This time was different. Our meal was well prepared by chefs that know the craft. Flavorful, with just the right amount of spices.
My wife had the red snapper, I had the seafood spanish paella. The snapper was good, but the paella was great!
River City Brewing Co is back on our list...

I just moved here a few weeks
I just moved here a few weeks ago from Kentucky. I "stumbled" upon the restaurant and it was so good the 1st time, that I went back the next weekend. Great food, great service and a beautiful view!

Great Place to Dine!
We had an awesome waiter (Martin)!! He was so personable, engaging, and thoughtful. We loved him better than the food, which was GREAT!! I live in the north; but, I'll dine there again when I am back down south!!

Good and potential to be great
There was no drink menu which surprised me. It took awhile to get drinks and wasn't even crowded. The food was great, good beer, and the view was amazing. We even walked the riverside while waiting for our food. Ask to be seated outside if the weather is appropriate! The waiter was very friendly and even charged our phones for us.

First Time Visitors to Jacksonville
Took visiting Sr. Management team for dinner. This was their first time visiting Jacsonville and RCB was the perfect spot for them to see our backyard. TJ our server was excellent and keep the mood light and fun. Would recommend to anyone who wants to show our beautiful river and enjoy great food.

We had a great business meeting. Lunch was well prepared and a good pace. We were provided a good amount of time to discuss business items during the lunch, which was spot on. We will definately return to use this as a good business spot for lunch.

Great Downtown Restaurant
River City Brewing Company is our favorite downtown Jacksonville restaurant. It has a wonderful view of the St Johns River, convenient parking, and really good food.

Ambience was great. Disappointed in the "Carving Station". Very much down-graded since prior visits.
Miss the Prime-rib. The roast presented was tough. Service was excellent.

Outstanding food and service
I picked this place to try their seafood. The food was outstanding along with the service.

Great Place on the river
RCB continues to shine. The food is always excellent with an attentive wait staff. Appetizers can be filling so be prepared to share. The calamari is tender and tasty and the crispy fried green tomatoes are excellent. Unless you're planning on making it your dinner, you won't need more than a half salad. Even the half salad is a big portion, similar to what most restaurants call a full-sized salad at a much higher price. We skipped the main course, then and went right to dessert and you can't go wrong with the bread pudding or the death-by-chocolate cake...although any dessert there is pretty fantastic. Don't pass up their brews, especially the Red which is probably the most popular. For business or pleasure, this place is a winner.

River City is one of the finest
River City is one of the finest restaurants in the city of Jacksonville. Anytime I think of special lunches for clients, I think of RCB. Food, ambience, and service has always been one of enjoyment.

Great impression to out of towners
I had a surprise birthday party with out of town guests coming to this restaurant for the first time. Our server handled our table of 11 with ease. The appetizer samplers were wonderful and everyone enjoyed what they ordered for their main course. The chef was even able to whip up a milkshake for one guest who is on a liquids only diet. The view was fantastic and had some guests in awe when the sun set over the St. Johns River. Most everyone took a walk along the river and saw the Friendship Fountain in pink for October Breast Cancer Awareness month. This was a great experience that left everyone happy and made for a great celebration to remember for years. We will be back!

Decent food, great view!
We came here before a special event at the museum next door and were happy we did. Our food appeared to have sat for a minute or two before we got it (so it was a little north of lukewarm), but the taste was pretty good. Add to it that our server was attentive, informed, and very charismatic, and we were happy with our experience. I won't spend as much next time as I did here, but I would go back for lunch.

Have to try the calamari dish (appetizer). Hands down the best one I've had

Food was enjoyable and service
Food was enjoyable and service was excellent. Although we had checked in upon arrival, the restaurant did not acknowledge that we had honored our reservation. As always, the Open Table team straightened the problem out quickly!

Out for dinner with girlfriends. Great ambiance. Wait staff was friendly, attentive, and knowledgeable of the Menu. He was patient and very assistive.
Food was delicious.

Took some company guys from out of town for dinner while we were in Jacksonville, and they were all impressed and bragged about it. It made me look good!

We have a great time dining. Although restaurant was full, service was still very good.
