    Great neighborhood find. The waiter was very pleasant and efficient, job well done. The artichoke appetizer was a hit with everyone at the table. We will definitely try again.

    Food was amazing with no complaints from our table of 8. The service was a bit lacking we asked for a booster seat from our waitress three times and she never brought one along with asking for refills. The hush puppies and fried catfish are really good.

    Needed a place with a good diverse menu of good tasting food with good service and got great food and great service! The spicy shrimp appetizer was crisp and tasty with just a hint of heat. Our entrees were flavorful and done to perfection. We had the chianti chicken, étouffée, spicy shrimp with Tasso, and strawberry salad. Bread was served hot and was yummy as well. Will definitely return.

    We had a mix of seafood and non-seafood items and everyone enjoyed their meal. We had two adults, a teenager, and a child. Everyone was happy and would gladly go back. They also have an extensive gluten-free menu. Delicious food! The service was awesome.

    All of the food was excellent, we had the seafood platter, Calamari and Louisiana Shrimp. We liked the spiciness of the Louisiana shrimp the best! Butter, garlic, red pepper, pepericini pepper, and some jalepenos made for some great flavors but was not overly hot at all. If you like fried oysters, you should like these tasty morsels. I am a bit of an amateur gourmet chef and all the food met or exceeded my expectations! What is that word?? YUMMY! I would recommend reservations as the word is out about this place. We got there early and those without reservations had a 30 min wait before 6:30pm! Food came out fast and HOT! Great waitress ask to be seated in Kristens area!

    Saw your restaurant as I was driving on access of 1604 & figured I would give it a try very soon. Was very pleased & plan to come back again. Food was delicious. I tried your fish tacos & they were very good. Wine list was impressive. Definitely plan to return again. Interested in your happy hour at the bar also. Will have to give that a try as well. Would certainly recommend your place to my friends & family.

    My wife and I ate here on Labor Day after hearing many compliments. I am not a fish eater but my wife is, so we went. The restaurant is very clean and clear of any clutter. Our waitress, Brittany was very professional and upbeat and knowledgeable on the menu. Our food was hot and very good. My wife had Rivercity salmon and I had Monterey chicken and we shared the fried pickles which had a nice light batter and flavor. We will return even though this is about a 30 minute drive.

    River City Seafood Grill is a good place for a quick, casual meal. The service felt pretty rushed, we received our entrees just moments after our salads arrived. While the food was prepared fine, there really wasn't anything too memorable about it. This would be a good place to go after work for a quick, predictable seafood dinner at an affordable price but not a place I'd recommend for a client dinner or special occasion.

    This place was above average in quality of food, but the noise level was really loud, and since this was a reunion dinner, that was a huge negative. Hard to find a non-noisy place anywhere these days.

    A definite New Orleans flavor and atmosphere. Best fried catfish in San Antonio. Crawfish, gumbo, et al worth the trip. The 5-7 Happy Hours prices on drinks and appetizers should not be missed either. The owner, Charlie Coleman, is fully involved and available.

    We were all very pleased with delicious food. I had the mahi mahi, and I must say it was very good. We had a group of seven, and all were satisfied with their selections. The only complaint from our group was the small size of shrimp in the shrimp scampi. We will go there again.

    Owner very involved and friendly. Food excellent ... especially the fried catfish. Good selection of New Orleans traditionals. Waiters need more training ... lost one of four entrees causing delay. Would definitely go back for the food and atmosphere. Happy Hour prices on drinks and appetizers are worth trying.

    We had the "all you can eat catfish" Sunday special. They give you so much on the first plate, you really don't have to ask for seconds. The catfish was lightly breaded, fresh. Best we have had in a long time. Waitstaff/front desk extremely friendly. Nice smiling faces.

    Bad service. Foood was ok but did not live up to the prices. It was more like diner quality food. I won't return. Had to ask three times for ketchup for the kids' food. Drinks were not refilled and it wasn't busy In there.

    Overall River City Seafood is a good restaurant. The food was good (we had the stuffed shrimp & grilled shrimp [gluten free]), the service was very good, and the prices were reasonable for seafood. The portions were just right & it was nice to have a starch and vegetables with the meal. We thought the drink prices were a bit high for the quantity - small martinis codt $8.50; most glasses of wine averaged $8. The host staff seemed a bit confused/overwhelmed with the list of people waiting for a table and those of us that had reservations - everything worked out and we were seated about 10 minutes after our reservation time. Not sure how long they've been in business, but I look forward to returning and trying some of their other dishes.

    This is our third time to eat at River City Seafood and Grill. It's always consistent. It's nice to see they are now adding some blackboard specials to the menu, to make it a little fresher.
