Nice view of San Marcos River and good local taste food. Take into consideration that cooking will take time.

Took our family there for a birthday dinner nervous. We had a good server who was knowledgeable and prompt. We got the strip steaks and ride year. They were prepared as we asked. The salads and sides were very good. We sat by the window so we could watch the waterfall and river. It was a very pleasant experience.

Always entertaining watching the river rats in the San Marcos river. Food is pretty good but the staff is better. Location could not be better and have never had to wait for a table, inside or out.

Good restaurant for family outing. Food good. We asked to be re-seated to a different table with no problem. Being a college town and right off campus, could cause problem on weekends. Get there early and stay late.

The location is great. The college is literally within walking distance and the restaurant sits on the edge of the San Marcos river. Ask for outside seating if the weather is nice. When we first walked into the restaurant, the smell was very strong and rancid. I do not know what to attribute that too. We asked for outside seating,... More

Stayed in town for event in Wimberley, Tx We had heard about this place and got there around 7:30 pm. Only waited 5 minutes and place was packed! Great service, food and drinks. Margaritas, YUM. Seating outside the best.

The sirloin steak was excellent so was the side Caesar and the sweet potato fries were great. The waiter had no problem taking care of a table of 17.

Took my college students here last Saturday, service was very very slow and it was not that crowded. My daughter ordered the specialty item, filet, shrimp with crab cake. After waiting forever, they come by to say no crabcakes, so they added three shrimp and still charged the same?? $32.00. Because they waited so long, my filet was overcooked and... More

Ordered the Ribeye and Shrimp. Asked for Medium cook with peppercorn crust and Cognac Demi glacé. Wife ordered Filet Mignon. Asked for Medium Rare. Wheat bread and sweet cream butter arrived. Very good. Cesar Salads arrive. Ok, but the lettuce was room temperature and the croutons were tasty but not crunchy. Entrées arrive. Ribeye is cooked "Well-Done". Filet is Medium... More
