I was tempted by the nice riverside location and the on-site brewery. The location is certainly excellent, beer is good and service helpful. Maybe I ordered the wrong thing, but their jambalaya was far too heavy on a gloopy tomato sauce. There was plenty of good seafood and chicken but the sauce really didn't work well.

I had the jambalaya, my wife had fish and chips, kids had fried shrimp, a burger and one deli sandwich. The waiter was very personable from greeting through service. The atmosphere was great as the weather cooperated and we sat outside. The food was closer to average but everything else bumped up my review.

We had the 3 pm seating and arrived early but still had to wait for quite a while to be seated. Three family members are seniors and have health issues and they were not allowed to sit anywhere while we waited for our table. The servers were inattentive and made it clear to our family it was the end of... More

Very nice restaurant with a nice variety menu on the river. Pleasant atmosphere for a great family get together. Able to get a table for 7 without a reservation.

We were in Jacksonville for a basketball game, and had dinner here before the game. Jacksonville was tough for us to navigate -- a lot of road construction and hard-to-read street signs. Our nav system often told us of a turn about the time we were driving past it in the wrong lane. But we finally got there and loved... More

What a great place to visit downtown. Right next to Friendship Fountain this location offer some of the best local Brews and delicious Seafood that you can place in your mouth. Plus the views of the river are breathtaking and worth a definite evening with your significant other. Plan to make reservations as sometimes it can get a little sticky... More

Stopped by for the shrimp and grits. Didn't get to taste the shrimp and grits. However, the Gumbo and Calamari at the bar was great. Would definitely go back again. And, the outside water works and lights were pretty cool.

We were group of 8. We were seated promptly. Our waitress was in training which isnt an issue but she left for extended periods of time - such as after drinks were brought to table she didnt come back for over 20 minutes. The soup was delicious. I had lobster and it was dry. My husband had steak and he... More

We had reservations for 12, which River City was happy to accommodate. When we got there, they had put 3 tables together, all of varying heights...weird. We also had 2 waitresses, one for each side of the table...also weird...which meant that 6 of us had food while the other 6 waited. As a group, we tried all of the appetizers... More
