Awesome view!

Great food, awesome view, ok service. When asked for drink Menu and the advertised ale at the entrance the waiter was slightly rude and didn't know what I was talking about. The food was great and the view...Fantastic. Clean.

We just love this restaurant! Food is good. We have had coconut shrimp, mushroom burger, fried okra, gravy chipotle pork chops, and cousin ordered Paul's Chicken Hatch Green Chile and it looked amazing and I think I will order it next time. It looked like it could feed three people. Very pretty inside and outside is pretty cool too.

Since I'm almost always alone while on the road I usually prefer to sit at the bar. This may not always be the place to get the best service but it doesn't have to be awful either. Just a tip to the bar staff...if you're slammed, and it does happen, at least acknowledge the person waiting with a "hey sir... More

Excellent lunch today with my husband. Sat in the bar. To avoid a 20-25minute wait. Service. Was quick, food was good with only 1 little lag time in getting tea refills but only because they had ran out in the bar area & had to refill pitcher. Can't wait to come back in 2 to River Grill in 2 weeks... More

We had a early lunch with friends and the food was great. We all had salads and they were super fresh with loads of chicken. The greens were fresh as was the entire salad. The service was wonderful. Great place.

You are not going to get city quality fine dining in Marble Falls but this restaurant is one of the better in town. One of a only a few view restaurants in Marble Falls. Nice outdoor seating area. A decent bar and ok-good food. Staff always friendly.

Don't sit inside, sit outside and enjoy the breezes that flow naturally along the cliffs of the Colorado River on Lake LBJ. Even when it's warm outside, it's still very comfortable. The menu is varied and is centered around fish and seafood, but there's more than enough choices for children or if you don't want something from the water. I... More

Thank you for the great review! Happy to hear you had such a wonderful dinner on the deck. Paul's chicken is one of our favorites too! Next time you are in town you will have to try one of our steaks, they are just as delicious. Come back and see us again soon! More

Food cold, service slow, drinks melted by time they reached table. Food bland, you need a new cook, and manager who can keep wait staff working rather than standing around. Very disappointing since food and service in the past was excellent but last two times worse food around.

We've been here twice now and it is really good food! At our table today, we enjoyed the mushroom and Swiss burger, chicken fried steak with mashed potatoes and fried okra, and two lone star salads.
