“Great STeak”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013

We sat on the outside patio overlooking the river; wonderful atmosphere; great service. The owner came out, spent time with us to talk about our trip. The food was excellent, best in Kerrville (Tripadvisor ratings do not reflect the quality of this place. The top restaurants on the list include fast food places. Come on Tripadvisor, get with the program. If you rate restaurants, then rate real places, not drive by joints!

“Nice Restaurant with a view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013

Saturday night dinner, requested a table outside with a view of the river. The view was excellent, ordered a nice glass of cabernet, and shrimp cocktail to start. Waiter was pleasant and very hospitable. Ordered the a filet with baked potato and house salad and blue cheese dressing. The filet cut like butter and the baked potato definitely tasted like it was home baked. Dinner for two with one win two shrimp cocktails, a fried shrimp dinner and a 6 oz filet was $50. I was enjoyed the whole evening, good food, great service and a beautiful view. One of the best restaurants in Kerrville

Used to be Bela Vita now a pleasant steakhouse with a great view. Service was good and the beef was tender and flavorful. Desert was worth saving room for.

“Pleasant service and nice view of river”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013

The River Terrace Steak House offered a pleasant dining area with soft background music that allowed for a conversation - had I not been traveling alone. The clientele was generally dressed casually - from boots and a t-shirt to slacks and a dress shirt. The Filet was a bit underdone for a medium - closer to rare - so you might want to order up. Regardless it was tasty and I did not send it back. The wine selection is fairly limited particularly if you want to order by the glass. With Avalon as a $8 per glass offering, I decided to order a $4 beer. While not fancy, it is not pretentious either. The food was good and an out the door price of $34.00 with a 25% tip gives you an idea of what you might spend. The weather was too hot to sit on the terrace, but during the fall the river is well within view and seemed very appealing. Service was timely and polite and the manager gave me nice thank you as I headed out.
