There are 2 areas for dining. One more elegant area with great big windows overlooking the river. Quiet and reserved. Tablecloths, excellent service, nice wine list and good food. Reservations recommended. The other side was more a pub, more of what is expected when hearing Brew Company. Sports pub style, high tops available, large bar and vibrant. So there is something here for everybody.

We hadn't been to RCBC in several years and were pleasantly surprised. The view is wonderful at night as the downtown lights up. Our food was delicious and the beer was fresh as well. Our server was polite but as the restaurant began to fill up, we saw him less and less. He never offered dessert or asked if we wanted drink refills after our food was served. Still, a pleasant evening.

This experience was horrible!! I reserved a table a month ago, told 3 times what number my table was according to my request that was made when I reserved it. We got there and our table was given away to other people, it took our server 15 minutes to even bring us drinks, I asked for the manager in regards to our seating and was told "They don't guarantee requests or tables" if that's the case why is the request box there and why was I told 3 different times by 3 different people exactly what table I had reserved. He said "They misinformed me" I asked for the GM, they never came, and the server never returned!! We just left. This experience ruined my wife's birthday!! I will never return.

Was disappointed in the lack of variety of food. The beef was so tough it was not edible, the smoked salmon lacked flavor and the desserts were a waste of calories.
Will not be returning for the brunch!

The restaurant has a beautiful setting over looking the river. It was nicely decorated for Christmas. Excellent waiters and waitresses that were very attentive. The food came out quickly and was very good. My wife and i both liked the bacon jam that was part of our meals and i loved the greens on my shrinp and grits. Sitting next to the indoor koi pond was a plus for my wife as well

Have been many times for the Sunday Brunch and was always really good. The food was terrible this time. We understood the meal was going to include prime rib not a beef roast. Also where are they crab legs, boiled shrimp and complimentary mimosa (at least 1). This will be my LAST time I go back. We have a table of 8 and our bill was about $200 with a $50 tip. Some of the food was just terrible, under cooked and the roast was almost solid fat and sliced by someone who had no clue what she was doing. I was served a odd hunk of meat that was 90% fat and I said to her...can you please give me some meat and not fat? Her response was well some people like to eat the fat. When I am paying the amount I spent per plate of food for a birthday for my daughter I expect a decent piece of meat since everything else was basically breakfast I can fix at home. I will say the salmon was good but it was gone almost immediately and hard to get much. The staff needs to be re-trained...I would also look at the chef and for sure if you don't go back to your basics...your business will suffer.

There was nothing special about the menu. In fact I would say that they aren't really sure what direction they are trying to go. My husband ordered a pasta dish that looked like they just dumped a can of diced tomatoes on top of the pasta with no seasoning or anything. It was so bad the waitress even made a comment about his dish looking 'off'. It seemed as though the wait staff was only concerned about parties of 4 or more, our service was average at best. We will not be going back.

This was one of my favorite restaurants in Jacksonville, FL because of the food. It was delicious every time! This time was no different! I had 15 people in my party, celebrating my graduation and our waitress, Michelle, was AMAZING! I don't know how she was able to be so perfect throughout the entire dinner! She remembered every order, never forgot anything, our drinks were full at all times, and she told me congratulations afterwards. I will always recommend RCB to anyone for any occasion, especially large parties!! Way to go service!!!!!

I took my granddaughter here for Sunday brunch. It was an outstanding experience for both of us. She enjoyed all of the breakfast goodies that were on hand. Freshly-made mini waffles grits and bacon were her favorite. I went for the carved roast beef potatoes and roasted vegetables. The ambience is wonderful and the view is special. My girl and I are headed to an afternoon event at 2 and this was the perfect way to start our day. Will be back again and again.

We were very disappointed. The host wanted to seat us at a table for 6; there were only 4 of us. The place was deserted at 7 p.m. on a Saturday night, so we asked to be seated at the window where there were plenty of tables for 4. The server didn't appear for a while, but service was adequate. My soup was cold; I sent it back. My jambalaya was very disappointing; mostly rice and obviously reheated.

It's been long time since we dined at River City Brewing Company and I was really looking forward to it. Now, I don't think I will return. It was kind of sad. I don't know if the place is going to make it.

This has been a favorite place of ours for years.
Menu is now is minimal, service was so rushed, never asked about drink refills, and we were there early so not too busy. Paper table cloths, at a high end restaurant - terrible.
Value for food was not good.
Doubt we will ever be back & that is so sad the location & view is great.

This is a Five Star Restaurant that serves an excellent brunch!
The Chefs make sure each entrée is made to perfection. Whether it the Beef Roast or Scarmbled Eggs and Cheese. Each item is cooked to perfection.
The service is wonderful and the servers meet each clients needs.
River City Brewing Company has an interesting amosphere and wonferful views of the Staint Johns River. It is superb place for Sunday Brunch.

Menu was very small and nothing special. Ordered the ribeye and the steak was almost ALL fat! Ordered the catch of the day, but it was very fishy. The vegetables were even overdone. Ambiance was nice, the view of the river was great. However because of the lackluster food and mediocre drinks we will not be returning. Pretty sad considering it's location!

After reading some of the reviews I wasn't sure about trying RCBC but after eating there, I am very happy I did. Came in after the Jags training camp. Wanted to see the fireworks on the river. First our waiter Kevin was amazing! He was friendly and patient(going over all of the specials not once but twice!). We all went with the fish special which was a corvina. It was AMAZING!! We added on a half of a salad and the half was huge. My husband also ordered the greens and when they brought them out they recommended the bacon jam on top of them so we tried that. What a wonderful recommendation. The bacon jam was delicious and added to everything else! We finished with the bread pudding...another win! I would definitely recommend River City. We will definitely be returning!
