Enjoyed our meal here. Will come back if ever in Radford again. My husband and I enjoyed the beer selection.

My wife and I stopped here for lunch, not familiar with any Radford restaurants. Not much atmosphere, but hey, it's a college town, right? I ordered the Bar-B-Q Pulled Pork sandwich & homemade chips, my wife the Grilled Ham & Swiss cheese sandwich with chips. Our rather aloof server brought my B-B-Q and it was very dry except for a...

Having driven 600 miles today mostly we wanted to get fed and then bed down for the night. We picked this restaurant because, even if the dinner selections weren't good, we'd have all day breakfast to choose and it's hard to mess that up. We were pleasantly surprised. Started with fresh hot rolls that we're definitely home made. Both of... More

Used to be a phenomenal restaurant, with great food at fair prices. In the last few years both the service and food seem to have gone down, and it is overpriced for the quality of food you are getting. The last several times I have been the food has come out cold, is not tasty and you get to sit... More

When we visit our son in Radford, we always make a point to have breakfast at River City. If there is a wait, don't worry as they flip tables pretty regularly. The menu is diverse and has something for everyone. Love that the coffee comes in different/old mugs - nice touch!

Last time we were here, we were not impressed, so I kind of avoided it. Well, this time the food and service were awesome. We showed up kind of late and the service was attentive and friendly the whole time. We had shrimp and stuffed salmon and both were delicious. The brussel sprouts were amazing, and I don't normally like... More

My family and I have been eating here since opening. They have gone through numerous chefs and staff but always manage to plate a good meal. Last week I had the Chicken and Dumplings special. It was a little different But lots of flavor. This week I got the Chicken Ceasar Wrap. Wow! Chicken was flavorful and the Ceasar dressing... More

I had the salmon salad and my husband had the Ruben. Both were tasty and we'll portioned. The ambiance was nice and they even used their walls to showcase local artists selling their work. The only thing that could use a little work was one of the bathrooms. Great place and would highly recommend.

When they say big breakfast, they mean it would satisfy a lumberjack! Great coffee and service. If you come any time during the day, they serve huge portions of breakfast including eggs inside bread, eggs benedict, eggs with crab cakes, and pancakes. On a cold day, the potato soup was very welcomed. The Reuben sandwich was great too, and we... More
