One of our favorites in Punta Gorda. Pleasant ambiance, good food. We like to meet friends as it is fairly quiet and easy to talk

Arrived at the grill after a late flight into PGD. Upon arrival, I inquired as to what they stopped dinner service. The hostess informed me 9 pm. That said, she gracefully seated me at 9:05 anyways, saying it’s the right thing to do. Nice touch. We had scallops and a sizzling “cracker steak”a sour entrees. Both choices were fabulous in both taste, preparation and presentation. In addition, our server Christian was fantastic. We will definitely be back and recommend to all.

Great Cuban sandwich. Mom was in hospital and this was not far from there so we tried their food. Pleasantly surprised.
Will be a return customer.

Great spot for our first trip to Punta Gorda. Attentive staff, delicious food. If you check out the menu, they are not afraid to try a different spin on the classics. It’s busy so make a reso!

The River City Grill is a large restaurant with a big bar that gets busy from late afternoon throughout the evening. It can get loud and noisy and this might deter you from selecting this as a dining establishment. However, the food and service are much better than the type of place you might at first look think this is. But the noise will always be there. Ask to sit as far away from the bar as possible and your dinner will be more conversational.
We made a reservation for 4, but they did not have it when we arrived. That was no problem as they found a table for us immediately. However, to be on the safe side, be sure to remember the name of the person who takes your reservation so that you can demonstrate that you actually called.
Don't bother trying to learn more from their website as it contains only one page with the phone number. They are not good at marketing, but better at food and service.
