My son and I have visited the River Bound Cafe for breakfast a few times this fall. Service is always quick and friendly. The food is good and pretty inexpensive. It's definitely a good place to take young kids.

Been here a few times... service was always good but the food is ok. I think it's a good spot to go to for those who live in the area and aren't looking to drive far but there's really not a dish or menu item I crave and think, I got to go there! It's convenient.

Peggy, We're always happy to hear nice things about our waitstaff, but are sad that we've yet to "wow" you with any of our offerings. We hope we'll have another chance very soon! More

Came upon this cafe while avoiding Sunday traffic around 295. Food was plentiful; split a Monster Omelette, tasty but a little dry. Potatoes would have 5 stars had they been served hot, great taste. Waitresses seemed more interested in their 2 pm close up prep than in waiting on the few last customers in the restaurant. A little disappointed!

Turkey and bacon on ciabatta bread with Gouda cheese was fair. Not much taste. Fries were fresh and hot. Chicken breast with avacado on toasted buttered bread was delicious service was slow and they were not that busy. Both kitchen and waitress were slow. An Ok rating for this Mechanicsville local hang out. Sandwich and fries $10 or so

Riverbound Café has the best breakfast in the area. I always order the Western omlette. My wife gets the Mom's Breakfast. Food is consistent visit-to-visit. Great service, excellent coffee, very reasonable prices. We are 'regulars' there.

Three adults and a toddler had dinner here on a Saturday night. The service was good and there were numerous specials in addition to a varied regular menu. All of us enjoyed our meal: soft-shell crab BLT (a special), quesadillas, catfish and corn dog nuggets (for guess who). Drinks were replenished regularly and everything we needed was cheerfully provided. This... More

A warm and comfortable family eatery that I believe could be better. Only average in all that they do. Slow service, average quality food and average preparation. A large and loyal following probably will not demand a better product. Hoping that in the future they will improve but at this time we will only return if part of a group... More

Generally very good food with quick and friendly service. The prices aren't great, but they aren't too bad. The decor is relaxing, and it's a nice place to spend an hour with friends or a significant other.
