First time there since COVID outbreak. The staff all wore masks as we did coming and going. Seated guests proper distance away from each other. Our server was great and the food was delicious (especially the bread pudding!). Glad we decided to step out of our comfort zone to go. We’ve enjoyed their Sunday brunches many times before Covid-19. Makes us sad city of a Jacksonville wants to make them move to put up condos.
Our server was excellent and it was a very pleasant and relaxing experience.
Atmosphere was great! Very friendly staff and service!
Mark our server was exceptional!!!!! He was prompt, paid attention, and he also gave us a little history about Jacksonville. I could not have asked for a better server. The entire experience was awesome and just to sit on the deck with a view of the bay.
Amazing experience every time, will be back! The team is always outstanding, quick and informative.
I'm reluctant to go out to eat in restaurants consider... COVID! But River City Brewing has a large, covered patio beside the river and it was perfect for dining with two friends. We wore masks and so did the waiter, but, of course when our drinks and food arrived we took them off. Tables were more than 6 feet apart. The cool river breeze was a plus. I got the shrimp and grits which was delicious!
I made reservations for my husband 30th Birthday and the service was terrible. It took a hr to place our order and once we got our food it wasn’t fresh and on top of that they was NOT busy at all. I was very disappointed always heard great things about this restaurant so that’s why i was very confident in going . Probably wouldn’t go back .
This restaurant is a hidden gem! Wonderful riverfront views from all tables! Food was delicious, our server was cheerful and happy to be there and pricing was good for the overall experience!
Martin was our waiter and he was very good! The view from our table was breathtaking!!! We had 6 in our party and everyone enjoyed their meal!!! Definitely looking forward to going back soon!!!
It was good , the NY strip was really hard steak was not good and they took ribeye out of the menu
It was lovely. Great food, great service, great price.
Great food an atmosphere
The staff and manager were amazing. Our meal had a slight issue and they were quick to assure us its not right and handled the problem instantly. We had an amazing time here.
Awesome food, awesome service. We had the Calvary, jambalaya and scallops, it was delicious.
Friends came from Amelia Island for lunch. We had a table that provided a perfect view of the St John’s River. The chicken sandwich with fries was outstanding. My husband loved his shrimp and grits. The waiter was attentive but did not rush us. Fantastic spot!
It’s sad to see how rundown this place has become. We love coming and sitting by the river but it really needs some updating and the food was just okay. Our waitress was wonderful and very attentive but the atmosphere and food needs a revamp for sure.
Breakfast and lunch offerings were very tasty and made to our specifications due to health requirements. It would have been nice to sit outside, but the awnings had been removed and the poor weather made that option not available. We did appreciate the spacious distances kept between tables inside and the fact that a boisterous group was seated well away from others dining. Our waiter was attentive as usual . It is unfortunate that the Sunday Buffet is not longer an option, but we definitely understand and look forward to its return during better days.
The hostess was very friendly and welcoming, I wanted to seat outside by the river view, the seating table and chairs were in pretty bad condition, I walked away and nobody even realize it. Inside was muggy and kind is dark, not what I was expecting for my 28th anniversary.
Great outdoor seating but slow service (refuges staff due to COVId seating restrictions). But if you have time it’s great!
I had the shrimp and grits and they were delicious. Also, they fried shrimp was tasty and the fries that came with it.
First time dining. Business lunch while downtown. Food was excellent, as was service. Fresh, delicious, every single item on the plate! Fried shrimp were amazing and crispy; fresh made cocktail sauce; even the Cole slaw and hush puppies were great!Nautical dining room with a beautiful river view and dolphins! Very quiet due to Covid-19, but excellent precautions followed with staff and seating. Can't wait to return!
Awesome in every way. Our first visit and the food was great. Beverages were great. Brunch menu was awesome. Will definitely be back for the brunch and bottomless beverages.
Tony was our waiter and he was phenomenal. Will definitely be back.
Service (Rick) was excellent. Great location and views! Food was also delicious. The place could use a little makeover but it was good!
Great ambiance. The food was delicious. And the Prix Fixe menu was a fantastic value.
I had a wonderful pleasant nice experience at River City food was excellent the service was professional chef Marvin was personable or all of the wonderful experience
The food was great! Staff very friendly. Ambiance not so great.
Great atmosphere, food and service. John was our host and he provided us with great service and the chef special.
I had my Birthday dinner here and the staff were amazing. My birthday balloons were tied to the chairs and gift bags were placed on the table before the guest arrived. Zack was our waiter, he was very attentive. The atmosphere was great. Our table was facing the river. The food was delicious.
Wonderful night. The waiter Nathan was very punctual and the food was good. We had a view of the river and the social distancing was a nice touch, not crowded. Good dinner selections. I had meatloaf, and the rest had the lemon pepper chicken with fettuccini noodles with alfredo sauce. Very nice and comfortable.
Outdoor seating was too hot because not placed under the fans and the chairs were made out of PVC pipe so not comfortable and cheap. The waitress was quite rude and did not seem interested in being there or serving us. The food tasted really good and will still go back again. Just drew the short stick with our waitress
This restaurant was wonderful. Waiters were very attentive
Service was attentive. Food was amazing. The view of the water was very relaxing. Fantastic meal for a great value.
Zack was a great waiter !
Had a wonderful brunch while in town visiting family. Food and service were excellent.
Great food, beautiful view and staff was wonderful!
Great view. Exceptional service. Margínal food. Burgers burnt to a crisp. Salmon and pasta dishes almost too salty to enjoy.
River City Brewing Co has the best clam chowder, hands down. Additionally, the food is nothing less than phenomenal. The view is an added bonus, right on the river front - a beautiful view of the St. John’s. We got to see dolphins one of the times we went.
Additionally, for those concerned about current state of precautions. There is social distancing seating, staff wearing masks, and bathrooms doors kept open to avoid touching handles.
First time visiting but it was awesome! My husband and I loved it especially the shrimp and grits!! The view was also amazing!
We ate inside by the window Sat. night around 645 and it was nice, most people wanted outside. Our waiter Zack was good. The food options were good, I got the salmon which was excellent. There was another waitress that was not exactly happy and was complaining about something most the time about the people outside. Kinda buzz kill. Overall great location right on the water. I would go again for sure.
