I spoke with the restaurant today, 7/12/13, to find out when the restaurant would re-open and they said hopefully the 1st week of September, but should definitely be in September.

This was our first visit to the grill. We tried the special of the night, black and blue burgers. They were cooked well and very tasty. Fries were crisps and hot! We did not sample alcoholic beverages. Wait staff was very attentive. We were there in December 2012. Went back for another meal May 2013 the resturant was closed for... More

Great place to enjoy lunch or dinner, a little cocktail, wine or beer and enjoy the porch and watch the activity at the river. The food is good, service is friendly and there is always something happening to watch. A great place to bring friends!

We went with friends from Pecan RV Park. We had seen bill boards throughout the area for the River Pub. Nice view of the San Marcos River. I heard the had the BEST burgers in San Marcos and that is true! We would return again!

With a location like this, it is a rare treat that River Pub has not "slacked" on their fare. In my humble opinion, the BEST burger in San Marcos (and I know my burgers). Also, one of the best chicken fried steaks, best onion rings, chicken strips etc. I no longer venture past the burgers, go ahead, indulge.

Picked my niece up from her dorm and she suggested we eat lunch at the River Grill because she said the food and atmosphere relaxed my brother after being caught in college town traffic! We sat outside on the porch and watched the kayakers practice (yes, it's December) and frisbee's go back and forth. I had a difficult time orderering,... More

I wish this place was around when I went to school there!! The location was right on the river next to a great swimming area. We sat on the patio with the best view. Our waitress was attentive & friendly. I had the spinach salad with chili rubbed salmon, vinagrette dressing. It was delicious. My husband had some kind of... More

There was a group of us that ate at this establishment yesterday (a Sunday) around 4 pm. I do not know if they were unprepared, understaffed, or unaware of what they were doing (college was about a week from starting back up in San Marcos), but there were many people at the River Pub for a 4 pm on a...
