In 1994, the first River City Diner opened it's doors on Main Street in Shockoe Bottom. An instant success, River City Diner continued to be a popular spot throughout the years, until the flood from Gaston hit!  But not to be defeated, we found our current location just around the corner at 7 N 17th Street, and with our revitalized space, we are rockin and rollin along!


Our downtown location is part of our locally owned diner chain in RVA, serving breakfast, burgers and classic American entrees in an yesteryear setting. 


Come and check us out and enjoy some great food and milkshakes.
