Really nice dinner - nice outside table with great river view, excellent food (Salmon and soup/salad for us), attentive server, good prices. The $25 Prix Fixe on the salmon was a good deal.

Easy walking distance from hotel and the location was great but, boy, what a disappointment. Reservations made but we arrived early. A lot of shuffling of hosts and staff. We were told we had to wait for two tables to be freed before our table of 7 could be seated. We saw two sets of two tables go to parties of two and we were still not seated.
Decided to go to the bar. Wait staff struggled. 20 min for first round of drinks. 40 minutes for meals to be served and one plate was missing and a special bacon less spinach salad came with bacon. The burger that was ordered had pickles and cheese.... nothing more. Another twenty minutes for second that arrived as meals were finishing.
Food did come out hot though—appreciated. Separate checks appreciated
Not sure what the problem was. We won’t recommend to the other 2000+ conference goers who want dinner in a reasonable time this week. More wait staff and perhaps some coaching in kitchen may help.
Would have appreciated more than the wait staff apologies.... she worked hard.... management issues——- saw waitstaff’s children sitting on order station and handed around to other staff... poor management seems to be the isdue

First time visit since I'm new to the Jacksonville area. My wife and I were looking for a pre-theatre dinner venue. Great service and great food. Really enjoyed the bacon jam in the shrimp and grits dish. Will definitely be back.

tbh, very disappointed with visit. Did not realize that Sunday lunchtime was a brunch menu only so that was our mistake. We looked at outdoor seating which would have been fine for a weekday happy hour but not what we had hoped for Sunday lunch. Inside was Ok but place was 3/4 empty so had a very empty feel to it. Brunch items were pretty dodgy- roast beef was v. chewy and the spinach/artichoke was congealed. Place has a great location on the river but is just had no vibe/ambience and the food was not great. Maybe with a regular menu and a couple of beers would improve my opinion! ;)

There were a number of private parties in banquet rooms, service in main dining room was very slow. Waiter said order machine ran out of paper. 2 of 4 meals served after 65 minutes, other 2 meals arrived almost 10 minutes later. Service at other tables was also very slow.

Our waiter was AWESOME!!! Our food was horrible! For almost 200.00 what a huge waste of money!!! Such a disappointment for my son’s 21st birthday!

Calamari was so chewy and in one huge piece you could not even cut up.

Crab dip was a paste that tasted awful but we ate the chips.

Shrimp and grits had 5 shrimp and no taste.

Crab cake was filled with stuffing hardly any crab.

Fish tacos had 2 little pieces of fish.

Cheeseburger was burnt to a crisp.

We enjoyed the cold French fried if that tells you anything.

Food was not good. Our waiter was awesome and helped make our experience not so bad. The person making waffles burnt the first one. The other person making omelets was very slow and did not know what he was doing. The grits were runnyand the bacon was very hard. There was not a large variety of food.

Went for my wifes birthday with eight family members. Everyone said their food was excellent. Restaurant was quiet in mid afternoon. We could visit and actually hear each other.
Wife had salmon with asparagus. Asparagus was a little hard, not being fully cooked. (That was the only criticism) Overall, very enjoyable.

We were visiting our friends (another couple) in Jacksonville and decided to try this place due to the fact that it was on the water. The bread and butter were delicious as well as our crab dip appetizer. However, I ordered the spaghetti and meatballs which I did not enjoy at all. My husband ordered the shrimp and grits which he was not thrilled about either. I was not drinking because I was pregnant, but the men were impressed with their beers and their reasonable price. So overall, I would recommend this place for the great view and the yummy/reasonably priced beer.

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.
