We both ordered burgers. They were excellent and the portions were large. Friendly service and great views of the ocean. It was too cold to sit on the balcony outside but we will go back when it's warmer.

Wife and daughter went for dinner burgers. It was not busy at all. Erika? Forgot my wife's salad, asked her what kind of dressing, so I now she heard the order, gave my daughter regular fries instead of the sweet potato fries she ordered, and my burger had the dressing I asked to be left off. 0 for three. She... More

I really enjoyed this place and will be back again! I got the veggie burger and fires and it was one of the best house made, vegan, veggie burgers I have had. We ate outside and the view was gorgeous. I highly recommend this place.

Heard this place was good and so glad I got to go. Very rustic inside but with a fun theme. We got fried pickles for an appetizer. A little tart but fried just right. The Carolina Burger was amazing. My husband swears by their chili saying it's the best around. Priced well...and servers were all pleasant. Will definitely go back!... More

My family and I visit here every time we are in Myrtle Beach. Great atmosphere, fun staff, and FABULOUS food. The choices are almost endless. The only complaint this time was my husband said they put too much mustard on his burger. But other than that it was Amazing. We love it here and hope to be back soon.

First time here we didn't know what to expect. Had to walk up stairs with marker writing all over walls(most people would have left) and went into a very small place. Nothing fancy at all until you get your food. Wow! Burgers are awesome, onion rings huge, and prices were good. Don't miss it!

We always visit a RCC when we vacation at the beach. Which is often. It was yummy as always. The chili cheese fries were amazing! My bacon cheeseburger was delicious and my husband loved the mac and cheese burger! We'll always be loyal customers as long as things continue to be great!

While looking for lunch in close proximity to where we were staying, we chose River City Cafe. I've dined at River City several times in the past. Each time it has been an enjoyable experience. On my most recent visit, I had the Shrimp Po-Boy. It is piled high with fried shrimp, and comes with lettuce and tomato. You have... More
