Beautiful view of the river! The food was very good. I got their special (I think it was called Paul's chicken) and I would get it again however, I would order the green chili Verdi off to the side. It is very spicy and hot and a little goes a long way. The staff was helpful and courteous. A very... More

We were on a road trip trying to enjoy local stops and local food. Don't come here- the food is less than average, even if it is where locals eat.

We ate here for a lunchtime group business meeting. The atmosphere is nice. Waitress was friendly. Food was adequate. We want to come back on our own, though, and stay longer, try some other menu items, and enjoy the view of the lake!

My friend sent us here so I was expecting really good seafood. What I got was a side salad with a few croutons, three small tomatoes no cheese or any other vegetables. Out comes the fried catfish and it wasn't fresh, it was frozen and the the fried okra had been fried earlier in the day and reheated in a... More

We had lunch on Monday at the RCG and sat outside facing Lake Marble Falls, I had the Pink Lemonade with the grapefruit vodka and my husband had the lynch berg lemonade and they were very good.

A large grill with excellent views of Lake Marble Falls. There is a wrap around outdoor deck if you prefer. It was around 5 pm so were seated quickly but I noted that the hostesses managed the flow well during our visit as more patrons arrived. Our server Marcus was timely, attentive and friendly. The menu covered steaks, seafood and... More

GREAT. Gorgious view. Really awesome food. Eat here you will not be disappointed. Appetites welcomed - Awesome view. Totally rounded out menu ... Burgers to prime ribs and all in between. Prices good. Strawberry lemonade tastes fresh squeezed. I had the prime rib. It was good. I am picky about the fact "Medium Rare" means just that. They passed that... More

They accommodated our reservation to sit inside with a view. Server was great. The view was beautiful. However, our food was just average. Some items were a little overpriced for what they were and the salsa is not good. I would still go to enjoy the view and have a nice dinner with family!

My dining companion and I were blown away by the view. It is beyond spectacular overlooking the water. Watching people on canoes and Kayaks, and kids swimming. It was absolutely delightful. Food looked great, but was rather bland, chicken was over cooked which beats raw. The strawberry Lemonade was the best thing we had that day. They were understaffed but... More
