I promised her an interesting life and good food…and the rest is history.” – Bob Ehrlich

The Lakeview Tavern and Grill in my opinion, is the hidden gem of the RB Golf Club and Resort in Runaway Bay, TX. The restaurant has a modern feel aesthetically and the atmosphere is relaxing and bright. It’s easy to see why resort members and the locals in the community truly consider this place “home”. I honestly felt like family as soon as I walked in the door.

The first day of my stay at the golf resort was my first dining experience. As I turned the corner into the restaurant, I was greeted by the sweetest person, my girl Kammy! “What can I get for you, sweetheart?” I really wanted to say EVERYTHING because I was pretty hungry by the time I got there. The menu is a tasty feast of chef inspired appetizers, salads, sandwiches, burgers and main plates.

The mastermind behind all of the tasty wonders I had to choose from is Chef Tina Bible. Her energy and love for food is immediately noticeable and infectious! Her approach to food speaks to what I appreciate about being a foodie-yes food can and should be good, but it’s the good food with a twist that leaves a mark. Chef Tina is definitely leaving her mark. Feast your eyes on her creations:

Shrimp Brouchette : A table favorite! Bacon wrapped Shrimp with a BBQ Drizzle topped with the BEST Onion Strings I’ve ever had! We had a few rounds of this one.

Quesadilla Platter :  A hefty portion of brisket inside a flour tortilla with cheese, bell peppers, onions and sour cream. A side of loaded mashed potatoes and wonderfully grilled asparagus were the perfect final touch.

“The Pro” Philly Cheesesteak : It’s so nice…they cook it twice! A double stack of the classic with juicy sirloin steak served with peppers and onions, all on a toasted Hoagie bun. Very filling and absolutely delish.

RB Classic Burger : Literally another classic done to perfection. Seasoned Beef and all the fixings we know and love on a house made bun. This hit the spot!

Jalapeno Poppers : Poppin’ with a mix of Bacon, Cream Cheese, Shredded Cheese and Ranch. Also a hit at the table, we may have fought over the last one on the plate!

Steak and Shrimp : I’m gonna spend some time here. I felt the inspiration in this dish…it gets me. My tastebuds on a plate. Best part is you can choose to have your shrimp fried, blackened or taking a flavor bath in garlic butter. The only thing missing here….was another plate.

It’s a perfected balance of a sweet start and a slightly tart finish and the sour cream shines here. I hope this one goes from “daily special” to a permanent menu stay, it’s worth it.

Chef Tina’s tremendous attention to detail and the care shown in her cooking clicks seamlessly into the RB Golf Resort jigsaw puzzle. Much like the resort, the food here is a really good time to be had by all.

Thank you Chef Tina and the entire waitstaff at Lakeview Tavern and Grill for an amazing food adventure!
