Service can be a bit iffy food is average tourist pub food. Just keep it in mind when visiting. Stick with burgers and beer and you will be great.

I spoke with the restaurant today, 7/12/13, to find out when the restaurant would re-open and they said hopefully the 1st week of September, but should definitely be in September.

Great place to enjoy lunch or dinner, a little cocktail, wine or beer and enjoy the porch and watch the activity at the river. The food is good, service is friendly and there is always something happening to watch. A great place to bring friends!

With a location like this, it is a rare treat that River Pub has not "slacked" on their fare. In my humble opinion, the BEST burger in San Marcos (and I know my burgers). Also, one of the best chicken fried steaks, best onion rings,...More
