Description: Welcome to our little place at the Lake! Whether you're an angler plying the waters of Amistad, a recreational guest of our hotel, or perhaps a "lake-local" resident from the surrounding area, or Del Rio.... Belinda and I are glad you came! We wanted to provide for you (and ourselves) a relaxed place to discover great food and enjoy the best view of any restaurant/bar within 100 miles. Belinda and I are committed to an ever changing fun and creative menu with unique weekly "off-menu" specials conceptualized by our kitchen staff as well as customer suggestions. We hope you enjoy your time at ICON Bar and Grill and look forward to meeting you there. - Byron Velvick and Belinda Juarez, Owners

We were pleased when this place first opened. It isn't far from the lake and therefore it is near our house. The first couple of trips were fine but it gradually went down hill until we absolutely will not go there anymore. The food was really strange. The "catfish" was not catfish. Even the hamburgers were off flavor. What was on the menu was not necessarily what you got. When you would question them about it, they would either claim that it was correct even though the difference was obvious or they would simply state, "We were out of the xxxx so we serve this instead." It seemed that they were testing a new amateur cook at each visit. The last two times we were there, at least one thing on the plate was cold that should have been hot. Service has always been a problem here since they opened but it doesn't bother us any longer. We go elsewhere.

Everything continues to be great here. From the great "blue" drinks to anything you pick on the menu. Give it a try for sure.

It took almost two hours to receive the last of our food which was served in two shifts. Those who received their food late, did so after the others had finished eating. Two in our party ordered baked potatoes which were served wrapped in foil - both the foil and the potato were colder than room temperature. In fact much of our food was cold. The server stated that the fish of the day was one kind that we had never heard of, so I went to the manager who had to go to the kitchen. He reported that it was another fish that we had never heard of. Had to go to the bar for another wine, because we could not find our server. Had it not been a graduation celebration, I would have walked out long before our food came.
