We have been to this restaurant on two occasions. On both nights the staff were very friendly and the service was exceptional. We enjoyed a wine pairing evening with a 5 course meal. Each course was introduced by the chef and on the whole it was excellent. My only negative was the beef being cold when it was served. That... More

A business lunch today was my first dining experience with River Grille. The service was excellent. My seafood salad was better than my all time favorite seafood salad, found in Hawaii. Our server was very knowledgeable and the chef was accommodating, making a salad dressing for me. The restaurant was quiet, even though several groups were in the dining room.... More

We hadn't eaten here in almost 13 years, but decided to give it a try last night with visiting family. This place is even better than we remembered - great food and knowledgeable, attentive waitstaff. Every item we ordered was presented beautifully and was a pleasure to consume. One of our party ordered the duck, and it was perfect! My... More

River Grille was so wonderful in every way! Friendly wait staff, ready to answer any questions. Prompt service in an intimate setting. Our entrees were delicious--stuffed flounder was the best I have had. My husband had the shellfish risotto, which was also delicious. So filling we both had to take home 1/2 of our meal. Also, the key lime pie... More

I went to meet with a client at this restaurant for lunch last week. Solid service and great meal overall. I had the steak salad, nice portion and it all tasted so fresh. Definitely going back for dinner next time I am in town.

We have gone to River City for several work lunches. The good is sometimes a little slower than expected, but that is because they are making the meal fresh! The Steak Salad is my favorite but the hamburger with sweet potato fries is defiantly a close second!

Sharee our waitress has only been at the River Grille for three weeks but she did an excellent job explaining the menu selections. My husband and I were so very pleased with her suggestions. And yes, we did take food home to enjoy during the week! The food arrived HOT! My baby back ribs were the best I've ever been... More

We frequent river grill and always love it! We have enjoyed meals in the dinning room but usually eat in the bar area or just stop in for a drink. The inside is beautiful and we always have great service. Their food is amazing very worth the $! Props to our server Kelsey who has remembered all of our names😊
