We ate with our young kids on the patio and watched the river. The staff is amazing. Everyone was very nice and all had smiles on their faces. Can't get over how nice the staff was and the home made dressings and sauces. The food was home cooked and delicious. We will most defiantly be back when we... read more

Had lunch on the deck and enjoyed a good chicken salad with a view and sunshine. Service could improve but overall a good experience.

My wife and I went early on a Monday evening. We were greeted and seated promptly. Service was very friendly and efficient. We had the fish cake appetizer to start. It came with a romelade sauce that I think could use just a little more zip. The fish cakes themselves were very nice. My wife had the fried shrimp. They... More

Recommended by friends. Nice looking place on the outside and cool looking on inside. Food was so so though, and very pricey on some of it. Lacked and won't visit again.

I visited this restraunt during spring break and got incredible service. I visited at 5:00 and recommend you go early though because by 6:00 when we left there was a line forming. The food was great we ordered the pork chops and carrot cake. I am not a carrot cake fan (my fiancé is) but they warm it up and... More

We have been going to River City Grill since it first opened. Their food selection is very good ,reasonable, and great atmosphere and service. Your view is lake Marble falls and during the annual boat races in August, this is a great venue. Burgers are awesome,especially their Swiss and Bacon,my favorite. You will never be disappointed.

While on a Sunday drive to Marble Falls, we decided to stop at Chilis on Lake Marble Falls and have dinner before we drove back to Waco. Next door is this restaurant, so we decided to check it out. The service was stellar, the view was great but the steaks were certainly not worth the $22 each. Do yourself a... More

This place has a nice view and is pretty casual. Menu is decent w ok food. The service is good and polite. I think they may have too many young folks working there and need an experienced manager. The location is close to everything too.
