I Fell for this Place

My transition lenses betrayed me as I entered and I missed the step which was the same as the rich dark wooden flooring as both the entry area and the indoor seating area. Apart from the hostess failing warn me about the step and my falling flat on my face, the visit was perfect. We chose to sit on... read more

Took my mother. We were greeted and seated pretty quickly. It went bad from there. First the Server took 15 minutes just to bring water. She left quickly and it was another 10 minutes before she returned to take our order, although by the time she took the drink order, we told her we were ready to order. It was... More

I ordered the chicken fried steak. It was the worst "thing" I have ever tried to eat. The meat inside of the mass hard breading was black like shoe leather. The baked potato was good. I think the waitress was very embarrassed. She wanted to take it back but I declined.

The breading on the chicken fried steak was so hard you couldn't break it with your hands and the meat inside resembled a rawhide dog chew. The Caesar salad looked pathetic. Iceberg lettuce with huge chunks of red onion and covered in croutons with no visible dressing. The gumbo tasted very bad and the ice tea was bitter. We will... More

We tried out River City Grille as we've eaten many time at the Bluebonnet when passing thru Marble Falls. The margaritas were good, the Caesar Salad with grilled Salmon was also good, the salsa was good, chips were stale and bland. Sit on the patio if you want a great view of sunset over the lake. The cost was higher... More

Our Newcomers Luncheon Club had the May lunch here today (May 5, 2015.) I had chicken fried steak that was rock hard - I had to use all my strength to cut through the breading! The meat was OK, but the breading could have been used as a puck by a professional ice hockey team. How do you even get... More

Pulled in not knowing anything at all about this restaurant, except that it had a great location overlooking the river. We got lucky and got one of the few tables on the patio outside overlooking the water. The ambiance was really nice. We shared a couple appetizers and each had one of the main courses. While not great, it was... More

Stopped in about 4:30pm on a Sunday afternoon and ordered Paul's Chicken, a large (!) boneless chicken breast (apparently a specialty of the house) breaded using crushed potato chips to give a nice crispy crust. For sides, got the green chile rice (large portion, and just the right amount of spicy) and a side salad (OK but not as special... More
