I made the mistake of leaving my sunglasses there on 08/09/14. We were seated outdoors at 7:45pm and I had my glasses on but took them off later and set them on table. It was MY MISTAKE to forget about them when we left at almost 10pm. I went by early Sunday morning but unfortunately they were not turned in... More

My daughter doesn't do meat or chicken so she ordered sides. The veggies arrived covered with some kind of powder/spices that tasted terrible and she only took one bite. The water must've been siphoned from the lake out back. It was dreadful, and the ice in our drinks (we switched to soft drinks) was obviously made from the same nasty... More

Food may be considered good for Marble Falls, but mediocre at best. Water tastes funny. Nice view though.

We had catfish and fresh mash potatoes, green beans, and Lake Cakes which were all excellent. The place has a spectacular view of the lake. My catfish was tender and fresh and not overdone or over-battered and in no way resembled the other reviewer's description. Totally happy with our meal, ambiance, service and view.

My family and I drove an hour to try River City Grille. They messed up my burger by undercooking it. After the first bite I noticed and they offered to fix it.

The food was VERY good. We all LOVED the green chile queso and chips, even our picky eater, the hot sauce was also very tasty and fresh.... More

We had a terrific lunch at the River City Grille when passing through Marble Falls, TX. Service was attentive and efficient and the food was good. They have big windows and a shaded deck overlooking the Colorado River, plus a rustic dining room and bar. It was a sunny day and wasn't too hot by Texas standards, so we opted... More
