Solid place & friendly staff. Clean restaurant with good choices.

The food choices were plentiful and they gave great alternatives if you're not in the mood to eat steak or meat. So, there's something for the whole family.

Many of their items (if not all) were homemade. The rainbow trout was very good and so were the sides (Sweet potato, chile cream of corn, and green chile rice).

Six of us dined at the River City Grill. We all had a slightly different food experience, but my fish tacos were pretty disappointing. The fish was overcooked, dry, and tasteless; and the slaw and sauce didn't compensate. Our guests seemed to enjoy their meals, but no rave reviews were forthcoming. Service was adequate, but not spectacular. I agree with... More

This is a favorite stopover as we travel up and down US 281. It's easy to find, has good food, good service and a great view.

The staff was very good and our waiter was excellant. Very good views of the water. Others in my party said the food was very spicy, but very good. My hamburg was very good and the fries were thick and good. Great Grille food.

Had reservations for a group of 20 on a Saturday night. They didn't have our tables set up and ready on time, but once we were seated, it was great! Food was good, as was the service! I had the fried shrimp with mashed potatoes. Both were to die for!!! Would order this over and over again!

We were in town for the night and the Blue Bonnet cafe us closed until January 2nd. This was close to our hotel, so we thought we would give it a try. The place could have been cleaner. The food was ok, not great but the bloody Mary was yummy. Didn't think I would go back.

The food here was pretty good. I had the steak sandwich which I thought was one of the best I have ever had. Service was really good and the view from the outdoor porch was great. I will go back on our next trip.

Marble Falls looks to have a few good places to eat; I saw this one in a youtube video of them blowing up the highway 281 bridge over the falls and it looked to be a good view of the river and people having a good time, so I hunted them down when I was next through town. Resturaunt has... More

Thank you for taking the time to write such a thorough review. We just added some new menu items - Southwestern Chicken Salad and a Chicken-Fried Pork Loin. They really are standouts. We hope you'll come see us again next time you're in town. More
