We were denied the opportunity to sit where we wanted although the table was available. Upon entering the greet staff was less than cordial. Took very long to get our meal and then the chicken fried steak was running with grease as were the french fries.

We have eaten at River City Grille twice now on our visits to Marble Falls. The food is very good and the atmosphere is friendly as are the staff. The last time we ate here everyone had the pork chops which were excellent. But the carrot cake is some of the best we have ever eaten. If you go you... More

Have eaten here many times ranging from a burger to fancy. All were very good, plus the view of Lake Marble Falls from the outdoor deck is the best. Not inexpensive, but you get what you pay for.

We had a late dinner and it took several minutes for our drink order to be taken, but, the waiter apologized for that. We decided to move to a different table because the table we were designated was, too, small; we ended up with a different waiter. She was nice and was honest when we asked if the Mac 'n'... More

We stopped here on our way back to the condo for an early dinner. Not very busy when we arrived. We were promptly greeted and asked if we wanted to sit indoors or out on the patio. My partner joked that he wanted outside seating (it was pouring down raining) and she said that the deck was covered and we... More

We were in town for a wedding and there were approximately 15 of us that went out the night before for dinner. Each "group" was paying their own way and the wait staff did an excellent job of getting all the drink & dinner orders correct, as well as all the checks....The food was tasty and not overly priced with...

There was a wait to sit on the balcony over looking the water so we opted to sit inside. The greeters hardly spoke at all and did not smile (two of them). Was seated and then ordered. The food was mediocre - so much so that I do not remember what I had; it was something that was known to... More

We really enjoyed sitting out on the deck overlooking the lake. It was such a pleasant change from eating outside at restaurants in Houston overlooking parking lots and traffic. Our food was very good, too. The only negatives were that the service was just so-so and we waited forever for our food to come. Would we go back? Absolutely!

We went in for dinner and the food was very good, the views are wonderful. It was a great way to relax, enjoy the food (ate on the patio). Would have stayed longer but our waitress wasn't as attentive to our drinks as we would have liked. Still had a good time
