R.I.P was a great place but due to the lake being so low no boats could get close enough without a big walk up the rocks. This lake has made it difficult for lake shore party places to make it. I'm sure that the owner getting killed in a boat racing accident didn't help the deal.

This is the restaurant I mention in my review of Lake Travis, it has ton of space for seating, wrap around bar and dance room, The food was delicious and great deals on drinks. The oysters were great and I'm not a big eater of oysters. They had the usual Mexican but extra options like salads and tuna. The service... More

Food isn't bad but the cost is not good. View sucks. Lake is drying up and all you see is rednecks jumping aboard pontoon boats. Margaritas are crazy strong tho. They had 80s rock blaring which was great but we went with our kids so it made for some interesting listening. The place is filthy and the customers are gross.... More

I ate here because it was the venue for a sporting event. The food is good but not great. It is either burgers or texmex. Prices are a little above average. Service is often a probe Len. They seem to be understaffed the two times I have eatened here and that's on a Saturday afternoon. Nonetheless the young woman who... More

We stopped in here to thaw out after a windy cold day on the lake. The bar service was pretty average to be honest. I'm not sure that they get any training. Don't know if they do food. No menus or anything were offered, and we were there for about 4 hours! We made our own fun and had a... More

The service is always so great at Carlos and Charlies. This is the best place to eat and continue to drink after a day on the lake. They have awesome views and an overall fun atmosphere! ou also get a free souvinier cup!

Not sure how this place is still in business. My grilled "jumbo" shrimp, veggies and rice dish was barely edible and I left most on my plate and nibbled on my kid's burger & fries to stave off my hunger. Waiter did the bare minimum and was kind of rude. There were very few other people here and for good... More

Talk about a huge disappointment from other Carlos n Charlies we have been to. Wow. If not for the good band that was warming up to play and fact yelp does not allow it, I would give this place a zero. We walked in and sat down for 25 minutes with not one waitress acknowledging our presence. EVER! It was... More
