Mediocre food that was overpriced, but suppose that is the price of admission for Mother’s Day Brunch

River City is consistently a great place to dine. Bobby is very attentive to his diners and the food is prepared perfectly every time. The restaurant has outdoor dining with heaters for those diners still shy of dining indoors. The menu has something for everyone. We've been going to River City for years and never disappointed.

Great service, just ok food. We made a reservation at opening (5pm Friday night) but throughout the entire dinner the place was mostly empty. The bread was ok, my entree was Chicken Parm. The chicken was super thin but you got 2 breast filets. The side pasta (which I can only guess was large Cannelloni) was the rubberiest pasta I ever tasted. Don't know if it was overcooked or just bad, but I couldn't eat any it. My kids had the pasta with marinara and meatball. You would think kids pasta is spaghetti... but no, it was penne for some reason? My Mom got a burger but she said it was dry and overcooked.

The service on the other hand was great. Our waitress was nice and chatty and very attentive. Unfortunately the food was just ok... and the entrance was weird. You have to walk through the parking lot of the strip mall and around a large bamboo fence just to find your way in. Was hoping for something better, maybe even an actual view of the river at "The River City Grill" but no, it's 9-10 blocks east of the water.

Kudos to the chef for knowing how to cook fish to perfection. Our salmon and grouper dishes were absolutely delicious! We'll definitley be back to sample more. While the service was most attentive, the outdoor dining arrangement was less than ideal, being situated next to a busy main road and overlooking a rather unattractive auto shop parking lot. However, the quality of the food more than made up for this shortcoming.

Dinner with friends. We are still choosing to eat outdoors so the ambience in the parking lot was the. Eat under the circumstances!
I’m sure it’s lovely inside. Everything we ate was very good and the service was very nice. We will come back!!!

Dining at River City Grille is always a treat. The service is top shelf and the menu broad enough for anyone to have a tasty meal. I had the pork chops with vinegar peppers that were cooked to perfection. My wife said the mixed grille was a little too salty but she enjoyed her meal and raved about the escarole bean soup. Outdoor dining in a parking lot is not ideal, but Bobby has dressed it up including propane heaters to make it a wonderful experience.

Great local restaurant. Now that it's getting warmer, it's great to have another option with outdoor seating AND warming lamps. Service is friendly and attentive, and the food is terrific.

This is the first and only restaurant I’ve been to in over a year, since the start of the Pandemic, and I picked the perfect place. I felt welcomed and safe and catered to. The food was excellent, as was the service. We were outdoors, the heaters made us very comfortable. I highly recommend River City Grille

We’ve eaten here in the past and loved the food. Brunch was always amazing. Dinner as well.
We came back post COVID and it was just “meh”. The chicken scarp had no flavor at all. The calamari was not really an appetizer, rather it was a huge platter that could have been family style. Had we known we would have skipped it. Butternut squash soup was also meh. Nothing special.

They got my wife's order wrong three times. It was a matter of cooking a piece of salmon so it wasn't raw on the inside--shouldn't be a difficult mistake to correct.

We enjoyed, the only thing I would suggest is using larger pieces of chicken instead of wings for the lemon chicken dish.

We returned! This time we brought our friends. The four of us had an outstanding meal. Loved dining al fresco,,too. RCG made it so cozy out front with some gentle background music. Our friends ordered chickpea bites—surprisingly delicious! And those THE MEATBALLS!!!! Ahhh again I had to have those meatballs as an appetizer. For dinner, we ordered two servings of the daily mixed grill, one salmon dinner and one filet mignon. And everything was superb! I know,we will be back again.

We dined at River City Grille to celebrate a birthday. We totally enjoyed our dining experience. The service was excellent and the food was amazing. Each of our party selected a different entree and all of the food was superb. We usually go into NYC on special occasions but I am happy that we visited a local establishment. I highly recommend River City Grille and plan to visit again.
