My husband and I visit River City Cafe every time we visit North Myrtle Beach. However this will probably be our last visit as we both got very sick after eating there this time. My husband got his usual barbecue sauce burger and I tried...the swiss cheese and mushroom veggie burger. We also had an order of onion rings. My burger was so dry it was not edible. The onion rings were just full of grease. I could not even eat one due to the grease. That evening about 2 hours later we were both sick as could be and up all night. Food poisioning? Not sure. But probably will not visit again.More

Went here based on Blue Skyes Employee Recommendation and they were right. Burger was big and juicy and seasoned fantastic. They gave so many ways in which to make a burger it was spectacular. The turkey burger was not dry as many are that we...have tried in the past.More

Came here as a recommendation from the concierge at our hotel. We got here and it was about a 30 minute wait so we walked over to the candy store across the street. The hostess mentioned it wasn't too long of a wait so my...guess is that they can get pretty busy. We were seated and the servers were working their butts off running around. They were busy & our server wasn't overly friendly, but she was good at her job. There were two of us and we ordered an appetizer & meal to split. We got the Cheese Pops and Chicken Tenders, and the chicken tenders were AMAZING! Hands down the best chicken tenders I've ever eaten! It was suggested to come here for a great burger so we'll definitely be back before we leave Myrtle Beach.More

This restaurant was within walking distance of our rental and the food was very good. My husband ordered a monster sandwich and could not finish it. All the layers - grilled cheese, burger, pulled pork, onion rings - were excellent.

The ace has it "thing". Don't know how to explain this but you feel it the moment you walk in. The food is great. Nothing sofisticated but all fresh and cooked/fried to the right point. I loved it.

The wife and I stopped by the River City restaurant for a quick bit to eat before attending a live show at the Carolina Opry. The service was quick and the food was nothing fancy but tasted good. Both of our burgers came with French...fries and coleslaw. The prices were reasonableMore

I had the beef philly, my friends had a hamburger and the grouper. Everything was great. Service was great too. Good parking at Broadway at the Beach too.

Love the theme of the restaurant being close to the waters. Not too long of a wait time (15 minutes) and the buzzers worked right on time. Limited parking space but well shaded. Friendly hosts. Their burgers are the best. Specially the basic cheeseburger!

We enjoyed our meal and our waitress! A family of 5 (adults/teenagers) ate for under $100 and had 3 appetizers. The Buffalo bites were AMAZING!!! Great burgers and RC salad.
