We all ordered hamburgers, salmon, shrimp & crab cakes. Everything was good - smashed potatoes and french fries were excellent. Our server Rick was amazing - nice and attentive. 5 stars Rick! 😆

I used to love this place but the last few times I ate there I found the food just mediocre. The restaurant is in serious need of a makeover as it's looking very old and tired and it smelled musty. It has one of the best views in downtown Jacksonville and parking is easy.

We had our tailgate here with about 500 of our closest friends. Great location and view of the river. It was the night before New Years Eve and they handled the crowd very well. We had a waitress that took great care of us. The bar is big and open and serves every kind of drink you want.

This is second time I have tried the gumbo at this restaurant. It is absolutely flavorless goop. I had to add salt and heavy amounts of Tabasco. It also was lukewarm at best and had two small shrimp in 3 slices of sausage in it. Needs work badly. When I asked the server for some bread she said no. Sorry... More

We go to River City for special occasions like anniversary and birthday. This time was a visit by an old friend we hadn't seen for years and had never been to Jacksonville. This made River City our first choice. It confirmed its iconic status again. Courteous greeting, a beautiful window table, gracious service and most importantly a delicious dinner and... More

I was on a bus tour and never expected a restaurant of this quality. The food and service was excellent. The staff was more than respectful seeing to our tables needs. they sat us in small groups of 4-6 instead of jamming us all at one large table. It was wonderful and a memorable place to be I would gladly... More

We spent some time on the Jacksonville River taxi and then decided to have dinner overlooking the river. Always looking for a micro brewery we stopped at River City and had dinner. Everything was simply great at this restaurant: Food, service, beer and employees all were excellent and although we ate inside the view of the river and the downtown... More

We decided to eat here before going to Sweet Pete's candy cane class. Disappointed about the food. The crab cake sandwich was not that great. The decor is dated.

Visited on a cold Sat afternoon, football weekend. The bar was staffed by 1 employee behind the bar & 1 (incompetent) waitress. Most all tables taken. Saw several would-be customers walk out. Heard same line from waitress "we had a no call no show"..."SORRY"... over & over. Had to ask for table to be wiped off after she cleared previous... More

Myself and three people approached the bar, never greeted by a bartender or anyone working there. After 15 minutes we asked somebody if we could get some drinks and they said sure. To make a very long experience as short as possible and to the point, we were never asked for a additional drinks. At one point we got somebody's... More
