Sandwiches were good but mashed potatoes tasted like they came out of a box. Special tomato basil soup of the day was overly seasoned with basil.

Visited recently with friends, given the lack of alternatives downtown on a Saturday night we happened upon this establishment. The food was average, typical diner-type fare. The beer selection was good and fairly priced. We enjoyed the live music but it can make conversation difficult.

Nice place. Quit and simple with local art on display to buy. I usually get breakfast that is simple and food. Lunch I have had once and it to was good. Not a place I would go weekly but nice place to try.

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
