Pros: GREAT DRINKS, MUSIC, & ATOMSPHERE!!!

Cons: CONS: THERES ONLY ONE...

.

I have been to the Moon River twice and have thoroughly enjoyed myself both times! Once was for Sunday morning breakfast tacos and Bloody Mary's, and both were excellent!! Everyone there seemed to know each other, it was truly a friendly and even comfortable atmosphere! It was a beautiful Sunday and I had a wonderful time sitting at the bar, with the doors and windows open and visiting with all the locals.

My second trip was on a Friday night and honestly, it was one of the best times I've had in a long time. Once again it reminded me of an episode of "Cheers"...where everyone knows your name! The bar was hoppin', an awesome band was playing, and the drinks served quickly and efficiently.

Would I go back? A RESOUNDING YES!
Try it, it's a bit far but WELL worth the drive!

Pros: Friendly Atmosphere

Cons: Distance from Austin

.

If you are camping at Pace Bend Park or out on a ride through the (Hwy 71) Hill Country , this place is a MUST STOP!
The staff is friendly and the atmosphere is laid back. With live music on the weekends (ex: Clay Jeffrey Band and Magnolia) it's a great place to spend the afternoon playing pool or the evening dancing.
The Sunday bloody mary and mimosa specials are a tradition for all the locals. Many of my friends from Austin wish they lived closer so they could be part of this great place!

Pros: Yummy Drinks and expanded Menu

Cons: Off the beaten path

My wife and I decided to give Moon River a try after getting a flyer on our car window when leaving Willie's Ranch on Easter Sunday. Its just up the road from us and it had been a while since we last went there.

Things have most certainly changed at Moon River. Easter was a very busy day at the bar and when we got there it took several minutes for the barteneder (Roger?) to get to us because he was a bit overwhelmed.

We got our drinks and sat down to listen to some nice gospel music at the end of the bar. But they had the doors open and it was kinda hot in the bar so, my wife suggested we head outside.

We noticed that people were eating, and the food looked good. They were advertising crabs and shrimp and so we decided to order some food. When we got back to the bar there was now two bartenders behind the bar and they were both still very busy, but the guy who helped us before finally took our order and refreshed our drinks and we headed back outside.

We had a good time, but it took forever for the food to come out, a little over an hour. The nice lady who was bartending came out and waited on us and I asked her to check on our order, but she said everyone's orders were backed up because they hadn't expected this big a crowd. We were a bit frustrated but she was trying to be nice.

When the food finally arrived it was great! I won't say it was worth the wait because it took forever, but it was really good and all in all we were glad we went.

Maybe next time we come in they'll be better staffed for the amount of people placing orders, and maybe they can get the air conditioner fixed because it was really nice outside, but we would have liked to hear the music a bit more.

Pros: Great location, great backyard, fair prices

Cons: They've still got some growing pains

The MOONRIVER BAR AND GRILL to me and my friends is, "the little dive bar that could!"

Here any size party is taken care of and attended with the most attentive courtesy. The Bar food is fabulous, when you crave some delicious subs or the best dips and snack foods wow... the music is always good too. You can come relax watching all sorts of people bust their moves or join in the party... Everyone can enjoy themselves without being shy or feeling out a place. I can't wait to my next visit to Texas to stop by there. If you don't stop by the moon then you don't really know what partying is all about. I've recommended it to all my friends and they all love it as much as I do... Come to the Moon and let loose forget your worries and be happy. Robert one of the bartenders and the other staff are great making everyone feel at home..

This is my favorite song to sing to my husband now;

Fly me to the moon and let me dance around the bar, let me see how spring is like in the greatest little bar. In other words maybe I will sing with the band, in other words come with me. Fill my life with song let me go forever more. The moon's drinks is all I long for and their food I worship and adore. In other words the moon's service is great in others words Moonriver I love you... lol

Pros: great variety of drinks especially love margaritas

.

I love this place. They just added a French Dip Au Jus, a Phili Cheesesteak, a Chicken Cheesesteak, and a Veggie Burger to the menu. Its all good stuff.

Chris, Rachel, and Yazz should be commended for all their hard work to turn this place around and make it worth the drive out. The crowd is mixed, from young to older and its always a good time, w/karaoke on Thursdays, live FREE music on Friday & Saturdays and Bloody Mary Sundays w/breakfast starting at 10am!

Come on out, but check the attitude at home. Lake living is fun and relaxed. Don't expect too much and be completely surprised!

Pros: Great Staff, Good Managers, Fun People and Good Food

Cons: The don't let dogs in the bar b/c of food permit

Moon river bar apparently doesn't ' check ID's too often. I know for a FACT that they have and continue to serve alcohol to minors. I would not recommend this bar to anyone based on that not mention the fact that it was disgustingly dirty.

Moon river and I didn't get off to a good start. Upon driving in the drive, I felt like I was in somebody's backyard and stepping in from a sunny day, the place felt dark and I looked over my shoulder expecting somebody to ambush me. Ambiance is not a strong suit, well suited for a couple hours of brooding over a whiskey and a lost love, but not much for a night of dining. Definitely a bar, and not food a destination. Food is about what you'd expect from your average bar.

Pros: Great Customers! Great Food! Great Fans!

Cons: Only open from 11a -2a M-F & 10a-2a Sat & Sun darn it!

I've never had more fun in Spicewood, Texas than I've had I Moon River! The atmosphere here is one of, "Anything could happen and it's probably about to!"

Great live music, with a good sized dance floor every Friday & Saturday. Huge backyard covered by many, many fully mature oaks. Lots and lots of parking. A great younger to middle-aged crowd, and all the status' mix here in a true melting-pot. Very 78704.

They serve great food and it's been very consistent since the new management took over in 2009. Children are welcomed though they discourage them after 9pm when most kids should be sleeping anyways. They have great live music on Fridays and Saturday and karaoke on Thursdays and Sundays.

The "Bells of Joy" are one of their best Sunday gigs, and are there about once a month on "Gospel Sunday". They do a great Crabby Sunday every third Sunday of the months. Dinner specials every Monday-Thursday are GREAT, especially Steak Night on Mondays! Yum! And they do $2 wells & domestics M-F 4p-6p and ALL DAY on Tuesdays.

The owners tell me that they have big plans for the place. Business is up, and as the money comes in they're gonna make some big improvements. They could use some improvement, I gotta tell you. The place needs a facelift to be all it can be. But the minor improvements already made have been a welcome change! Encouraging.

If you're a biker, this is the place for you. If you got a big truck, you can park it here. If you're camping on the lake, drop by after dark and then crawl back to the tent. If you need some food for the whole darn family, this is the affordable alternative to the rest of Spicewood, and if you're looking to get your party on, this is the place to drop your dime.

Hope to see you there...

The best neighborhood bar in a beautiful setting 5 minutes from Pace Bend Park and Lake Travis. If it isn't in your neighborhood...you should work on that. Awesome backyard and user friendly any season. The staff and managers will do everything they can to make sure you get great service and treat you like you are one of the locals... Good music and don't be afraid to get up on that bar and D.A.N.C.E. !!!

This place is amazing. It is covered in Oak Trees and has 2 stages for live music. Plus they serve breakfast Saturday and Sunday. The food and service were excellent and the price was very reasonable.
