The food was okay, waitress was great , girl who escorted us to the table not so much. Chicken fried steak with mashed potatoes and green beans , standard fare. My husbands tacos were so wet they dripped everywhere. Not sure if it was grease...or watery salsa or a combo of both? The view of the lake was pretty but the bridge traffic was really loud.More

We got there at opening time so were able to secure a spot on the patio that overlooks the river. Great food, service and ambience.

We have been here we deal times, and the food has Been consistently great. The grilled pork chop was grilled just right and the fried shrimp was delicious. When you go for supper, be sure to sit on the patio overlooking the lake and river....Just so serene to watch the sunset while enjoying your well prepared meal.More

My wife had Dad’s chicken and I had the Ribeye Steak. Both were very good. I highly recommend the steak. They were shirt staffed as are so many restaurants and other small businesses these days. The staff on hand worked exceptionally well together.

"Starts in the Kitchen" is the motto for this restaurant but it just did not work for us on Saturday. There are so many wonderful reviews of the River City Grille and I really wish I could add to these. But ... It began with...the manager telling me how hard the restaurant business is today. He was short staff and doing his best. Let me start with the men's bathroom - no paper towel and when I told staff, it was "yeah, we know ... it has been that way all day." My next thought was " wow, what does this tell me about the kitchen"/" The meal - my meal was very good. My wife ordered a pulled pork with no bread. My son, the "Monster Club Sandwich. Wife's pork came with a hamburger bun but that is no big deal ... just take off the bun. But my son's "monster club (their name for their club" came with no bread. Not the 3 layers of toasted bread ... no bread. Just ham, lettuce, and 1 slice of bacon. When I told the waitress, her solution was to take the hamburger bun and put it on the club. I told her to take it back and make it right. The manager then came out with a sandwich with 2 slices of bread - a club without the center toast, no mayonnaise, 1 slice of bacon. My wife gave me that look and I knew she did not want me to send it back. Then the manager told me this is the way he liked a club "without the center toast ... and the way they made it' ... and I wanted to scream, "I did not order it the way you like it". And then I thought of the men's bathroom - and I thought again of their motto - "starts in the kitchen" ... we ate and left ...More

Do yourself a favor and visit this lovely restaurant in Marble Falls. This was our first time visiting River City Grille and the city due to our Anniversary, ideal for those who want a romantic night out. The service is unmatched. The staff truly cares...about your experience. The food is absolutely amazing – everything we tasted melted in our mouths. Absolutely the best meal we had while in Marble Falls. Caitlyn made us feel welcomed and gave us an amazing experience. Thank you for a beautiful night, Highly recommend!!!More

Great view over the lake. Service was very friendly. Food was average at best. Catch of the day was grilled trout, which was pretty dry. Dessert, cheesecake was very good though.

Visited with my daughter while on a short vacation at the Horseshoe Bay Area. I had the pork chops and my daughter had a bacon cheeseburger. The pork chops were prepared wonderfully and my daughter said her cheeseburger was good also. The best part was...their desserts though. We had their homemade cheesecake and carrot cake. Both of them were very good. The wait staff was very friendly which makes for a good experience also.More

Visited after recommendations online. Service was slow, the “view” was disappointing and the food was mediocre.

You will have to call the restaurant directly to answer that question. I don't see why not though. There is an entrance that will not interrupt anyone's meals that you can go thru to access outside patio.

No, but there is an area about a block away where you could park an rv.
