We were very pleased to find that the restaurant at the Canyon Lake Marina is now a really good restaurant. It has changed hands several times and last time we were there it wasn't good, but now with the Baja BBQ restaurant, we can have a good meal or a drink and watch the sun set on the lake. We'll...

Good food and a great view of the lake. You can drive your boat right up and have a great meal. Very casual atmosphere.

It is drizzling rain, nobody's here. They are missing this!! The hamburgers are absolutely fantastic, the fries are really great, the beer is ice cold, the music is Buffet, Strait, etc. And the view... The whole lake, marina, with rustic lakefront restaurant setting. We will absolutely come back when the weather is better, it is great here now, it will... More

The food is okay and the service is above average, but be careful if you are paying with a credit card. Our waitress overcharged our card (added more tip for herself). I caught it when my card statement came in and went to complain to the manager. He reimbursed me. Love the view of the marina, the lake and the... More

We were seated but never served, people who entered after us were waited upon. When we finely got up to leave, someone acknowledged us. Can't review their food as I was given no opportunity to order.

Loved the BBQ sandwiches and the cole slaw. Nachos were also amazing. We sat outside on a Monday with a great view of the marina. Decent beer choice. I'm sure it's packed in the summer! Nice diversion if you are driving from AUS to SAT. Kind of slow service...there were 4 tables and waited a half hour for our food... More

Saturday around 5pm, mid-October, my son suggested we eat dinner here. The restaurant offers a nice vantage point over the marina with lots of seating areas offering good waterfront views. We started with an excellent shrimp appetizer. My wife had ribs which she gave a '10'. My son & his 'girlfriend', both AF types getting ready for PT tests, opted... More

Great location, sun set was gorgeous. Food was just ok. Friendly staff. Nice dinner. Had the ribs and brisket baskets. Not a large portion but was enough. I would try it again if I travel in the area. Quiet location. Ribs and brisket were smoked on the premises.

Thank Lizzardy
