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.

Great food and service. I had catfish and hubby had chicken fried steak. Both were wonderful! Salad was great...fresh and delicious. Great view.

Great view, but food and service were disappointing. We had the trout, fish tacos, and catfish, nothing particularly memorable. Attentive service can improve any restaurant experience, but it was lacking too. We'll give it another chance, best view in Marble Falls.

My husband and I were greatly impressed with the food! The burger was juicy and big and the pork chop he had he swears was the best Pork Chop he's ever had! Great place to go eat and chill while overlooking the beautiful lake. The service was great and the waiters/waitresses were very friendly!

River City Grill is on the river with a nice view of the Colorado River. I was somewhat disappointed because I thought it was fine dining. I ordered the prime rib which the temp was perfect and the size good. The disappointment was the flavor. It was just okay. The queso with carnitas was okay. The visit was just okay..service... More

Had dinner at the River City Grille. I ate alone, so I got a table pretty quick. The group behind me had six (6) and were told the wait was about 45 minutes. My dinner was well prepared and worth the price.

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
