This place was quite a find. We have owned a condo in Punta Gorda for 10 years and are only in a Florida a few months a year. We always heard about the River City Grill, but never had the opportunity to have dinner there. We made a reservation for a party of nine.....seven adults and two children. It was a Tuesday night, and a reservation was no problem. It has an easy to find location, right on Marion Avenue, one of the main streets of Punta Gorda. We were seated immediately upon our arrival and the kids, ages three and five, were handed a choice of coloring books and crayons. The restaurant was pretty busy and we were apparently not immediately noticed by our server as I think we were at a table that was just set up for us. Another server noticed we were not being helped and kindly offered to take our drink order. Our drinks were ordered and quickly served as were our appetizers and meals. The waitstaff offered their apologies for initially missing our table. Most everyone ordered seafood, but two ordered steaks and everything was delicious. The service was very good and our server did a fine job considering we had a fairly large party, and two kids. The interior of the restaurant was very well done with much wood and nice wall hangings. The River City Grill is a definite must visit if you are in the Punta Gorda area.
