Good food, service lacking!

First off we ordered an appetizer , chips and salsa, we never got it! Asked our waitress twice but she never brought it! People that came in after us got their chips and salsa and bread! We had to ask for bread with our meal to whoever brought our food out, not our waitress! She seemed sweet enough... read more

This restaurant has great views of Lake Marble Falls and good food. Out of the times I have dined here the food has been good, the drinks tasty and the service subpar.

Very busy place. Service and food were great. Combination fish plate was a lot of food. My wife and I shared and was more than we could eat. Strawberry Lemonade was outstanding. My wife wanted to switch drinks. Did not happen.

We stopped here for lunch and really enjoyed the view of the river. The food was good (nothing phenomenal, but good) and reasonably priced. All the seafood dishes were pricey (nothing under $20). The bar area at the front of the restaurant looked cozy. We would love to go back and visit the bar, even though you can't enjoy the... More

Thank you for your review. We are happy to hear you enjoyed the food and our views. We think they are some of the best in the hill country. We would love to have to back to visit our bar. Next time maybe try our Jumbo Gulf Coconut Shrimp, they're fantastic; and you can even add 3 to any plate... More

After a day on the road, this is the kind of spot you want: relaxed atmosphere, good pub food, reasonable pricing, friendly service. Very impressed with the variety on the menu and delighted that they even have a seniors' section on the menu. You can enjoy the ambience and not feel like an Old Geezer.

We had a family event for about 50 people in the Colorado room. Staff was great during the planning process and worked out preset menus for us. Food was great (mashed potatoes were a big hit). The waitstaff was friendly, efficient and even offered to help us carry stuff out to the car. I would definitely recommend this local restaurant.

The food is really good but the kitchen is slow. It took some time to get our food but it was excellent. My cheeseburger was a good choice flavored with a hint of out door grilled taste.
