Been a Grille regular for about 8 years. Our boat is at the Rough Hollow Marina. The Grille recently changed ownership and along with it a terrific tweak to the menu. Besides a terrific bar shaped like a boat ... the menu includes my absolute favorite "Seafood Enchilada". Kale salad for the wife. Can't get enough of it. If you want wine recommendations... ask for Chris. He will make your meal.

In short, we had a wonderful experience & loved the food & service!

I called the RHG couple of weeks before to make reservations and spoke to the gentleman about 10 minutes regarding the menu and he informed me they are under new management, will expect about 300 folks for the special brunch buffet and he will set us up with the table I requested.

On the day of, I called to make sure they have the table ready for our arrival, being we are a large family of 7 and we have an hour drive to the restaurant. Family flew into town for the special day & experience at Lake Travis. So when the hostess told me they didn't have a reservation on the books- I was very upset. She told me they can add us to the wait list. I asked for the manager told her about our ordeal and she took care of the mixup. We arrived at noon and was able to be seated immediately.

Our family was impressed with the food, selections, service and the location. Fantastic job recovering the fumble RHG Manager! RHG will continue being our family favorite & we look forward to bringing everyone out to experience it! Buffet selections included; prime rib and smoked salmon carving station, buttermilk waffles, fried chicken, hot buttermilk biscuits with gravy, scrambled eggs, fried potatoes and so much more in the hot section. There was a salad and dessert bar too. There was something for every person! Smiles all around! $29 pp included 1 mimosas too! Photos don't do it justice!

The food is great and the service was outstanding. We had a minor glitch with a drink order but the manager stepped right in and solved the problem. The menu is eclectic and has something for everyone. We had the Wedge and Filet and the fish and chips and both were wonderful. We heartily recommend the new Canyon grill for food, service and ambience.

They say come as you are and they are not kidding. The restaurant is pleasant and clubby. The menu is eclectic and can be a real journey of the taste buds - can be a little pricey but so worth it!! Great staff and a relaxed atmosphere. They really mean come as you are - no pretentiousness - just truly come as you are and you are welcomed. The food is outrageously delicious. The staff went way out of the way to fulfill our off the menu orders. Amazing!!!!!

This Grille is overlooking a part of Lake Travis. Although the dining room is exquisite, the outdoor patio is gorgeous and serves as a wonderful place to have lunch or dinner. The food was "5 Star" quality and service was exceptional.
