We stopped here as it was close by and convenient. The salad was excellent and very large. I tried 3 different dressings, just to try them, and I was so surprised at how good they were that I asked the waitress if they bottled them and sold them. They don't, but they should, they were excellent as they make them... More

Located right on lake marble falls this grille has 2 decks that even in the 90 degree mark are cool and shaded most of the time. The frozen margaritas always are a hit as well as the pork or fish tacos and we usually share a plate as the order comes with 3. Salads are huge and killer . If... More

We were staying next door, so decided to try The RCG. I had the chicken fried steak, which was a very generous portion, along with the mashed potatoes and texas beans. All were delicious! Our daughter had a cheeseburger with steak fries, cooked just right, she loved it! Best of all, my wife had the chop steak with garlic butter,... More

We set on the patio/deck over the river; ordered the Monster Club sandwich and the Fish Tacos, the queso/salsa appetizer and homemade chocolate cake. Everything was scrumptious. Service was great. Sides and desserts are homemade. Beautiful scenery overlooking the river; easy on/off from Hiway 281. Would go again!

We had a Cobb Salad and a steak. Hostesses and wait staff were very friendly and helpful in us deciding what we ordered. View of lake was nice. Close enough to Hampton Inn for us to walk to and wife does not walk very well.

Just left after a very poor dinner. Warm, limp lettuce on the salad. Cold cooked vegetables. Do no recommend.

Bill M, we are sorry to hear that your lettuce was warm and limp and the vegetables were cold. Each dish should be carefully checked for quality control before it leaves the kitchen. Did you inform your server about the unacceptable food? We would love to discuss this in more detail. Please contact us at rcg@nctv.com. More

I was initially told, "There will be a 5-10 minute wait". When I said, "Forget it", I was found a table and served immediately. I enjoyed the catfish in tortilla bits. Access from the south is slightly difficult because of road works on the bridge.

CBA2014 we're glad that you stuck around - we do our best to get people seated as quickly as possible. The Tortilla-Fried Catfish is one of our yummy house favorites. During the bridge construction, the safest way to get to us is to turn left at 2nd St, left again on Ave H, left on 1st St, and then our... More

While the wedding party was in the next room having their dinner, we sat with the out-of-towners enjoying our own feast and watching the river flow. The restaurant has a great view and great food. The wine selections were modest but the food was great. This is one of the friendliest place to eat. It's a must re-visit.
