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.

This is by far, the est iew of the lake. Sit outside, enjoy the cool weather, have an adult libation and then think about food. The menu is quite varied, and everything we had was wonderful. Highly reommend.

Nice view of the lake from up high (shame about the pylons!) & a very pleasant setting. The service was extremely slow, we sat with dirty plates for ages & people who who were seated after us were served their entrees before us. My husband & I shared a calamari starter which was below average-the breading was adequate but could... More

Went for dinner with a group of friends. Half the table sent their entrees back. The Shrimp Diablo was so hot they couldn't taste anything. My Chili Snapper was okay. At least they comped the rejected entrees and brought us a selection of desserts. Oh, and although the lone musician was very good, the music was too loud for a... More
