My husband and I received a gift card and were very excited to get to use it around New Year's. We love The County Line and this time did not disappoint. Their homemade bread is AWESOME! You have to be careful not to eat too much so you still have room for your meal! Wait staff was excellent. Our meal... More

I went to the County Line for a rehearsal dinner so its possible the food I had was more "mass produced" than usual. The food was good but not great. I had the turkey, briscuit, and sausage. I thought the sauce was a little thin and bland but not terrible. The peach cobbler for dessert was good but the ice... More

The Lake location is really on a creek that flows into Lake Austin but there's always water and loads of fun for the kids who like to look for turtles and fish. There is seating inside or on the outside deck. The decor is definitely Texas and the service is outstanding. We had a server named Ethan who was honestly... More

Good flavored smoked brisket cooked for hours so that it had that pink outer ring. Very tender. Beans and potato salad sides and top it off with cobbler and ice cream. It doesn't get more Texas than this. Great location overlooking the lake. Service is very good. I didn't care for the sauce as much as some other places although... More

Our family in Lakeway has shown us some very good restaurants in north and west Austin. The County Line on the Lake is one of them. We got different BBQ platters. All of them tender and very delicious. The service was excellent and helpful for us, as foreigners. We will certainly come back, if we get the chance.

Nice tables for a BBQ joint, even if you sit inside. Next time, we'll sit outside overlooking the lake. We were told that they have the best BBQ beef ribs and bread in Austin. They do. The pork ribs were also excellent.

good food, good service, laid back atmosphere - great selection of food and drinks too! If it's not blistering hot or raining the back deck is cool because you can watch the turtles and fish and ducks. Kids would love it - you can even feed the turtles.

It's a very nice place, especially if you get a table on the outside, looking to the river. The menu has offerings which are ideal to sample many typical Texan dishes. Bread is incredible. Waiters and waitresses are friendly but service is somehow slow. To wait a liitle is no problem when you are enjoying such a view.

On our way back from Lake Travis outside of Austin, we discovered County Line BBQ on the Lake. My daughter and I both ordered the shredded brisket sandwich mixed with homemade BBQ sauce on a homemade bun. The brisket was hot and the bun warm. It was amazing. Absolutely perfect. It was served with delicious homemade potato salad. A great... More

For several years we have enjoyed dining at the County Line on the Lake in Austin. The setting and décor are desirable. Being long standing patrons, we usually order 1/4 lb of lean brisket with a potato salad side for each of us, and a half-loaf of the in-house wheat bread. Once the food arrives we make our own sandwiches.... More
