Excellent food and service - great option for those seeking gluten-free food as they offer a real gluten-free menu in addition to a regular menu.

we met another couple there for dinner. it was a bit noisy when we sat down, but as the evening went on it became more quiet as people left. Food was very good. Loved my fish tacos! They had lots of vegetarian options and a nice gluten free menu as well. They were out of several of the wines on the menu,,, but didn't matter as we really enjoyed the food.

We enjoyed a nice meal before a concert nearby. Service was excellent and wait staff was very accommodating and friendly. We liked the variety of the menu, including the ability to order "half-meals." I would definitely return and recommend to friends.

Had a great experience before but not this time. I had inquired beforehand about vegan options for some friends and they told me they had a lot of flexibility to make other dishes vegan. But the waiter said the exact opposite —that there were not too many v. options. We went on a Friday evening but they had already run out of the gluten-free bread. Truthfully, I felt duped, the food was mediocre and for service with an attitude. Cannot recommend this place to anyone.

We have enjoyed River City many times but this was the first time we had a group of adults this large on a week night. Bobby and the team took great care of us with appetizer recommendations that were perfect for group sharing but still presented beautifully and tasting great. The night felt like it flew by even though we probably kept the staff longer than expected..and we never felt rushed. Great night and something that our friends from out of town are still talking about.

I was very pleasantly surprised by River City Grill. The food was very fresh and locally harvested, and the fish tacos had a very good flavor. The goat cheese salad was also very good. The burger which they said was a stand out was by far the least appealing item. While my husband's Reuben was amazing.

I LOVED the "simple" menu options. The grilled chicken was amazing - it may have been simple, but it wasn't boring; it was perfect. Paired with a side of mashed potatoes it was the perfect comfort meal, which is exactly what I was looking for when I was spending the entire weekend in a cold conference room.

It was our first time at the River City Grille. The dining room was inviting and the wait staff did an excellent job. The menu gave us a lot of good choices and was presented in an interesting way - including half portions of some of the main entrees. Meatloaf and Sunday Gravy were favorites at our table. I had sea salt caramel ice cream with hot fudge for dessert - it was awesome! The cold weather did present some issues with heat in the restroom but overall it was a pleasant experience.

You can tell that this restaurant has good management. They hire capable hosts and servers, and they're very reliable on service. We had a fairly larger group reservation, and they were very accommodating to our needs. The food is above average. It could be better with a more talented chef (as certain foods were undercooked while others were overcooked). It could have been an off-night in that respect. I would definitely recommend this establishment. There's plenty of diverse options on their menu, and I'm always more flexible when there's good management/ownership and even better service.

Lovely spot for Christmas eve. dinner. Attentive & efficient service despite being a busy holiday dinner. The smoked trout salad as an appetizer was delicious as was the Orrichiette, my main course . They also have an extensive wine list.

We went there for restaurant week and it was delicious! I was a little confused about the ambiance of the restaurant and their menu but we had no complaints. The pork wrapped in bacon special was amazing! They were lenient w their choices for RW as well. It’s weird that it’s in the same parking lot as a body shop but don’t let this steer you away!
