The best local restaurant on the lake with great views and great food! Our favorite is chicken fried steak and salmon with your desired topping.Nice bar with TVs for watching sports! They feature specials before 4 pm every day.

Dinner on a weekday. Only average. Nothing special. Steak lacked flavor or any type of seasoning. Service time as expected. Nice view of river.

A group of us enjoyed a nice dinner here after a long day on the road. It is right on the river/lake if you enjoy outdoor dining. The food was good, the service was pleasant and the place is large and open if you sit inside. A very nice option to the chain restaurant next door!

Great family venue overlooking Lake Marble Falls. Very crowded on a beautiful Sunday afternoon but a friendly staff kept things moving. There is an extensive and eclectic menue that has something for everyone. The portions are enormous and arrived hot and delicious. I had the crusted catfish with chile rice and corn. Excellent choice with some left to take home.... More

Stayed at the hotel next door and came here to eat. The staff was friendly and the food was good. Sat in doors but would have preferred the outside view of the lake.

First time at this restaurant and not overly impressed with the food or service, although the beer was cold and there is a great view of the lake. Had the combo fried platter with catfish and coconut shrimp. Catfish lacked flavor and was not crispy, shrimp was somewhat better. Might be worth another try but I would order differently.

Thank Lifeontheroad
Paul B, Owner at River City Grille, responded to this review

Thank you for your feedback. Sorry to hear you were unimpressed with the fried catfish and service. We pride ourselves on serving fresh, made from scratch recipes that are cooked to order, with a friendly service and a fun family atmosphere at affordable prices. We appreciate your comments and hope you will try us again when you are in town. More
