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!

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!

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

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.

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.

The restaurant is outdated with old green carpet and dusty old blinds, tou can tell it was once a nice place maybe in the early 2000. The food was mediocre and not worth the price. We had a 6:30 reservation and our food was served at 8pm, we will NOT be going back. For the price do yourself a favor and just go to the chart house

We ate at River City during the first week they reopened. We were widely seperated from other diners as required. The food was tasty but the service was very slow - especially considering so few diners were present.

I think I screwed up on noise level, it was very nice except when any infant came in. The hostess did not look to see my special instructions so did not get the server that I requested, but overall, I always love it. The chicken was a bit dry but the cod was wonderful.
