The service was awful waited over ten minutes to get refill. Had to get our own nuts which my grandson loves. The fries was so hard and cold you could not eat them. Waitress disappeared several times. This is the first time I went there and got this bad service and food.

We drove by River City countless times during our stay and finally decided to try it on our last day. I'm sad we waited. It was wonderful!!!! It was the best cheeseburger I've had in a long time. My Husband really liked his buffalo chicken sandwich. And the fresh cut fries were perfect!!! And you can possibly beat the view!!!! My only complaint was that on our visit they were out of Mahi-Mahi and I really wanted to try that sandwich.

We ate at this River City Cafe on 5/9/12 -- visited the one at Barefoot Landing earlier in the week and liked it so much, we found this one in Surfside. Location couldn't be better -- right on the beach, great view. But folks seated on the deck had to deal with pigeons. We sat indoors, and while it was loud and cold (bit too much A/C), the service and the food more than made up for it. Curtis was our waiter. He was kind, attentive, helpful, and fun. Husband had the Philly Burger and was able to substitute regular mayo for spicy chipotle with no problem. I had the Nacho Burger ordered with no jalepenos -- but surprise! Pulled them off and the burger was delicious. Very reasonably priced, too. We'll be back!

Never have I been seated then ignored for so long. The wait to be seated was short since there were only a few people waiting to eat. I honestly began to feel if I myself was loitering, as if I was only there to find a shady seat. Then once the waitress came up to us, it was if I was from a third world country. She spoke very few words and even after the 20 minute wait, told us to wait a few more minutes for menus. There were open tables to either side of us! This completely ruined my first experience at river city cafe.

You just can't please some people! We have been coming to the beach every year with my daughter,son-in-law and grandchildren. We started when our oldest was a year old. He is now 22. We found the river city cafe years ago and it has been a tradition for us since. We have eaten at every river city cafe there, but our fav is on 21st. Murrells inlet not bad either. The kids love it and we love it. We'll be coming back year after year as long as they are open!! I have been to the beach 5 times this summer so far, and I am going again this Sunday 9/12 and yes, I will be going to the RCC. Keep up the good work!

We make a trip to River City Cafe almost every year. For a huge selection of burger, this is the place! It's a nice break from seafood. We prefer the one in Murrell's Inlet though. The food is great and you can't beat the view at Surfside!!

Our family makes its annual trek to this awesome place each summer. It has become a tradition. The food and the atmosphere are great. We had burgers, fries and onion rings on our last visit and sat outside with a great view of the ocean. Would recommend it to anyone who likes good burgers and good service, The only issue is be prepared to wait! It is usually very crowed, but worth the wait!

Fantastic Burgers! We just moved to the area and decided to try out RCC, we have only been once but we will definitely be regulars.. I can't say enough about the food. Our burgers were great, loved the fries and the cole slaw was incredible. Oh and don't forget to try the iced tea too.

We ate here twice during our short stay and it was so nice! The food was tasty and plenty of it. The prices were not too bad for such a spot on the Atlantic seacoast. We managed to get a table outdoors on the deck both times and it was heavenly listening to the waves and feeling the slight breeze. How could anyone complain very much about that? The waitresses we had were both really sweet young ladies. Thanks! :)

We vacation every year in Garden City Beach. To beat the the dreaded traffic from Roanoke, Va. We leave by 5:30 AM. We drive directly to River City at Surfside Pier and arrive 11 or 11:30 for a Cheese Burger in Paradise while enjoying the view of the the Atlantic Ocean. It's a great hit with the kids and has become a tradition in our family. What a great way to start a summer vacation! See you Saturday July 4th.

My family and I have been going to Garden City Beach for the longest time and we found river city about five years ago. Every time we go to the beach for a week, River City is a place we must go to. Sometime we go twice during the week. The burgers and fries are the best at the beach. The wait is usually long (what isn't at the beach), but it's worth the wait.
