I love to bring my dogs, sit on the patio and watch the view of Catalina and Pallas Verde. In the afternoon there are kite surfers if it is breezy. Mornings bring bike riders down the river. Service is attentive but can be slow if it is busy. More time to enjoy the view and food.

Enjoyed the walk along the beach to River's End for breakfast. The service was friendly and fast. We sat on the outdoor patio and enjoyed the views. Didn't feel too bad eating the huge portions because of the walk back to town. The whole breakfast and beach experience was great! Bring your appetite.

Went here for brunch on a Sunday. Apparently we got there early enough to get seating for a party of 6. The breakfast was fabulous. We all got something different including eggs, pancakes, french toast (huge fat slices). Coffee was replenished frequently as was tea and water. We sat outside and checked out the beach/ocean. Plenty of shade provided by... More

Standard food in a great location. Burger pricey but not worth it. Expected more, after all the hype.

This restaurant is literally on the beach in Seal Beach, at the end of the San Gabriel River and the end of the bike trail. A favorite for bicyclists to have breakfast or coffee after riding down the trail. Food is good and service is great but the setting makes it truly special

Affordable dining in a pleasant beach front atmosphere. Dogs allowed on patio. Have eaten here many times in the past couple of months, tried numerous items on menu. Good breakfast and lunch, accommodating staff, nice crowd. Great place for Sunday brunch or anytime when you have some guests along. It's fun. Thumbs UPPPPP!

This was my first experience at Rivers View Cafe and it was delightful one. I couldn't think of where to take out of town guest and Bingo, River View Cafe came to mind. We had a great experience sitting out in the warm California beach sipping Bloody Mary's. Breakfast was better than I expected. Service was OK but sitting out... More

This restaurant was recommend to us. And, the best part of it was the view. It is directly on the beach with perfect views of the water. And, that's where the goodness ends. The food took over 40 minutes to arrive to the table - and that was breakfast. And, unfortunately, it was not worth the wait. The "craby Benedict"... More

The food is good and nice proportions. The omelets are good with lots of fillings. Try a mimosa or sangria with brunch.
