Any good restaurants in the Marble Falls area? (moved from Austin board)

My family is going to spend the morning zip-lining in the Muleshoe area and would like suggestions for a casual place to eat lunch afterwards. We are not familar with the area - any suggestions for a casual place for lunch?

      I've heard from a lot of people that Bluebonnet has really gone downhill. Not sure if that's still the case.

      CabbagePatch, if BBQ in typical BBQ atmosphere or a picnic is an option, the ribs from Peete Mesquite (right on the main road) are excellent. I suggest getting extra to bring home and freeze, but that's just me.

      reviews of Peete Mesquite:

      I've also heard great things about Jamin House but haven't made it out there yet:


      1. 909 and the Falls have great food and great wine. The falls is a Fixe Prix that changes nightly with assorted appetizers as well, 909 is in the top 5 Austin restaurants and has a great menu. Patton's on Main is a little less expensive but still fairly tasty. Bluebonnet is an experience but is what it is, diner food. Jamin House is great island/Jamaican food, ask for the house peppers with your bread if they still have it. Opies BBQ out in Spicewood is very good and is very similar to Coopers. Russo's Texitally is good texas italian. Storms and Atwood's are very good burgers. Janie's Mexican food on Avenue N is probably about the best Mexican food available.
        If you want to head out to Llanno you can go to Coopers for BBQ or Llaneaux Seafood House for good seafood/cajun. You can also stop in Kingsland at the Tamale King for some great homemade style tamales.

        1. In Marble Falls...Brothers Bakery has wonderful soups, salads, sandwiches.
