We returned here after almost a year ago.hey have a BOGO special but you have to purchase a drink, whether alcoholic or soft drink. Eating only poultry or seafood, their menu is limited and heavy on sauces. When here last year, their Asian stir fry was mostly edamame beans which I don't care for and fried rice with smoked bacon.... More

The service is great, we always eat at the bar. The food can be hit or miss especially the steaks. The drinks are always good

What a great night out with my wife. Dinner was amazing and the wine list was extensive. Our server Jenifer was a delight and made the evening that much better. Thank you for a great place to retreat to with all the hussle and bussle happening throughout the week. Highly recommend.

We have gone to River City Grill many times over the years and always request that Michele be our waitress. She gives great food recommendations, great service and has a great personality...a lot of laughs!

The service here is fantastic, thanks to our server Jen. She was very attentive, polite, funny, and just simply enjoys her job. The next best thing was the steak: juicy, tender, as well as tasteful. The combination of the quality food and the service made the trip worth it.

We decided to have our girls night out here for dinner. I've eaten here many times over the years but this was the best experience I've had. In the past the service and food haven't been very good, so I was very pleased to give it another shot. They offer a huge menu with many different items. If you can't... More

Our food was very good and came out hot.. Our server was Andrew who was great. Didn't see the chowder on the menu and he made sure we got it. He was so gracious and an asset to River City Grill. We will definitely go back on our next visit to FL.
