On The Rocks- Where the wait takes more then an hour and and the food is basically absolute crap. A lot of the other customers are loud, drunk, and annoying.

We made a reservation through Open Table for 6:45 PM, which was good, because otherwise we wouldn't have gotten an outside table, and it was gorgeous outside today! The site is amazing, high above Lake LBJ in Cottonwood Shores, near Marble Falls. Absolutely beautiful views. We were seated right at the edge with unobstructed views (see photo of the sunset)....

Visited there last week. The view can't be beat and the food is pretty good. I have had the Shrimp Diablo a few times...not really consistent but usually good.

Great location, incredible view, above average food, but poor service. Although our server was friendly, the overall experience left us disappointed. We asked 4 times for extra chips for our unfinished queso, and then we had to ask 4 times for our check. We waited almost 20 minutes for our check and then got up from the table and stood... More

This is the best restaurant, in my opinion, in Marbles, Falls. The owner, the staff and the food service are all awesome. They are courteous and their customer service is top notch! The views overlooking the restaurant are a much see.

Wife wanted to go here for our anniversary. Sure vlad we did. Excellent. Went at night in Dec. Dined inside. Even at night, through the window's reflection, you could tell the sunset view could be spectacular. For a Friday night the dining are was relatively sparse of people. This made our romantic dinner even better. Quiet, intimate, delicious. Will go... More

This property is located right on the edge of the river so the views were great. We were very happy with the service we received and the food was good too. We didn't need a reservation since we went on a Tuesday in November. We want to go back when we visit again.

We went for cocktails for a friends birthday. Staff was friendly and drinks were awesome! Best Mexican Martini in Central Texas hands down! The view is magnificent. This is a great place for pics and tables overlook the lake outside. Try to go on a pretty "outside" day!

But can be very buggy if you sit outside. However, the food is nice and the views great. Definitely worth a visit.
