River City Cafe is an local burger joint in Myrtle Beach that specializes in handcrafting ‘Best of the Beach’ burgers. We provide a fun family friendly atmosphere that’s as eclectic as our wall art (yep – that’s a giant giraffe head) and toppings (banana and peanut butter anyone?). At River City, our guests are family. The vibe is relaxed and you can throw peanut shells on the table and color on the tablecloths. Before you come dig into one of our juicy burgers, you may have a few questions. So we’ve compiled a list of frequently asked questions to help you out!


  1. Are animals allowed in the dining room or on porches or patios?

Although our mascot is a raccoon, unfortunately no, animals are not allowed on the premises per DHEC regulations that require certain additional sanitation station modifications to each pet friendly area. Service animals are permitted.

  1. Do you offer Gluten Free options?

Though we do not offer a certified gluten free kitchen environment for those with medical restrictions, we do offer several options for those following a gluten free lifestyle. Please speak to your waitress or give the location a call to see what their current gluten free offerings are.

All of our locations feature a great locale to either a stunning ocean or waterway view or close proximity to local Myrtle Beach hot spots and thrilling attractions.

Give them a call for current availability and offerings.

  1. Do you take reservations?

We do not take reservations at this time, but if you are with a large party or planning to bring a large party, just give us a call ahead and we will try to accommodate you as best we can or advise you when is best to come in. Please remember that seating is a first come first, serve basis so calling ahead does not guarantee seating when your party arrives.
