A friendly staff escorted us to a window table with a great view of the river and local park. Enjoyment of the view was finished by dirty windows and cobwebs. Our server promptly took our order but it was a long time before our food was delivered. The salads were wilted and full of brown lettuce. One customer who ordered... More

Staff was friendly and courteous, food orders were correct given we had a fairly large party, took a little bit to get the checks, I only ordered a desert because I had eaten previosly but the Steak made me want to eat again. We sat on the porch wich had a great view of the lake.

ordered the River City Caesar with chicken. Salad portion was ample, but chicken portion was a bit of a joke, 3 small strips of chicken that were completely lost in the salad. Chicken was also pretty dry. service was good, view was good, but the food was lacking.

I made the mistake of leaving my sunglasses there on 08/09/14. We were seated outdoors at 7:45pm and I had my glasses on but took them off later and set them on table. It was MY MISTAKE to forget about them when we left at almost 10pm. I went by early Sunday morning but unfortunately they were not turned in... More

My daughter doesn't do meat or chicken so she ordered sides. The veggies arrived covered with some kind of powder/spices that tasted terrible and she only took one bite. The water must've been siphoned from the lake out back. It was dreadful, and the ice in our drinks (we switched to soft drinks) was obviously made from the same nasty... More

Food may be considered good for Marble Falls, but mediocre at best. Water tastes funny. Nice view though.

We had catfish and fresh mash potatoes, green beans, and Lake Cakes which were all excellent. The place has a spectacular view of the lake. My catfish was tender and fresh and not overdone or over-battered and in no way resembled the other reviewer's description. Totally happy with our meal, ambiance, service and view.
