This has long been a family favorite of ours. Everything we’ve ever gotten here has been great, and the atmosphere is always very laid back and comfy. I don’t feel anxious bringing my children here, or coming here when I’m not dressed for a date....More

River City Cafe is the backup restaurant we always go to. It's easy to bring the kids. Everything about this place is comfortable, the food, the seating, the music on the weekend, the staff. Everything here tastes good. Comfort food! Comfortable place.

The food was excellent and the service was good. They had a classical guitarist playing, which was very nice. The only down side was I thought the mimosas were very over priced at $5 for a small glass. Aside from that I would recommend

Comparable to the chains. Maybe $10-13 for a dinner, with bigger, meatier meals being more expensive.
