Having retired, there are a couple of things I look for in a quiet food restaurant: 1. A great waiter/waitress. 2. A good drink. 3. A fair priced meal. River City Diner met all three! Great waitress, great drinks and great food! Thank you!

Convenient stop for breakfast right off 95. Stopped there on our way south to Florida from Maryland. Servers were very nice. Food came out quick. Quality of food was just ok, not great.

Perfect diner and great music in background. The service was superb, Chayron was our server. My husband had meatloaf and loved it. Highly recommend. Lunch for two was $27.
