Wide variety of tasty foods, consistent, great service and a really nice atmosphere boost this restaurant to the top of my list in Marble Falls. I lived there for 8 years and ate many a great meal at River City Grille!

“So good, we changed our plans and came back on our last night here”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2013 via mobile

Great view, great food and good service.
My family and I ate here two days in a row. For starters we had the tower of onion rings - fun and festive and the sauces are very good. My daughter had the Mac and cheese and said it was very creamy. My wife had the grilled chicken and said it was very good. Nice and tender and not dry and the sides of mixed veg and broccoli were cooked just right and very crunchy. I had the smoked sirloine steak. It had great mesquite taste and was very tender.
For dessert the kids menu comes with an ice cream bar
The bonus of it all is the view which is amazing.

It's such a compliment that you came to see us two days in a row! We're thrilled that you and your family had an amazing time enjoying our delicious food and beautiful view. Great call on the tower of onion rings — it's a lot of fun for the kids! We hope that you will keep us in mind next time you're in Marble Falls. Have a good one!

“Great lunch deals”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2013

We had lunch here on a Friday so we were able to take advantage of the M-F lunch deals. We got there at about 12:15 on a Friday & had about a 15 minute wait for a table for 7. From the looks of the parking lot I'd assume it gets very busy at night.

We started with green chili queso which was awesome & the large was enough for 6 people to share. I had the fried catfish, that came with two sides, that was just ok.

There is a great view from the patio if it's not too hot to sit out there. They also have some cute t-shirts for only $15.

We're happy to hear that our lunch deal was such a hit! We hope that the wait wasn't too much of an issue for you. Though we can get busy during peak times, we do our best to keep everything moving smoothly! As for your meal, if there is anything in particular that would have taken your catfish up a notch, just let us know at rcg@nctv.com. Thanks!

Hope to see you soon,

“Very good.. with view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2013

We lucked out regarding seating by window. It does get crowded early. Plenty of seating outside, but bit hot for us. Our service was "Heavenly", We ordered prime rib, mine was just right, but wife's was pretty fatty... we shared. Unfortunately too full for the home made carrot cake... maybe next time.

We're glad that you and your wife had the chance to enjoy our beautiful view during your dinner. It's disappointing that she found her particular cut of prime rib to be fatty, though. We would have been happy to exchange her dish, so don't hesitate in the future, to let us know if something isn't to your liking. With that said, we hope you'll join us for another meal soon. (And save room for some carrot cake!)

“Pretty good food - GREAT view!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2013

We met another family here for dinner before the Marble Falls Rodeo and had a great time. We sat on the upper deck which was screened from the late afternoon sun. The drinks were cold, the food was good and the view is amazing. The kids had a fun time mocking the skiers and jet ski riders who constantly wiped out in front of the restaurant. Good times!

Glad to hear that your dinner fared better than the jet skiers out on the water, David! In all seriousness, it's wonderful to know that you, your family, and friends all had a fantastic time. Next time you're in Marble Falls, keep us in mind for good food and cold drinks.
