We decided to give it a try, without knowing anything about the place... and were really happy with our choice! Fried catfish is great, burgers are delicious too, and the fries taste really close to authentic Belgian fries. If you are in the Oasis neighborood and are looking for a good place to grab food, this is it. We have... More

Went at weekday lunch time. Decent amount of other customers there at time. Ordered shrimp dinner and chicken fried streak. Both were great. Looking forward... More

Nice on the way to the lake kind of place to eat! Very good catfish and spinach salad. Rustic, relax and pure Texas. Nice staff. Clean place with great foot stomping music. Quick service. Enjoy!

My catfish poboy sandwich was tasty!! Thank you for having napkins and hot sauce and every table. My kids like their chicken nuggets & fries lunch. Great to have applesauce as a side selection for my kids. The playscape on the back patio was well-shaded at 12 noon while we were there. They have a fun idea of giving a... More

Great little shack!!! Wonderful burgers, wonderful food in general. You can go straight from Lake Travis and not have to dress up.

We went here for our daughter's 9th birthday dinner. She loves catfish. We were looking for something close to the Lakeway area and found this place on Trip Advisor. This grill did not disappoint. The catfish was very good. Light breading. Excellent flavor. All the fixings. There is a kiddo playscape out back also for the little ones. Very respectful... More

The fried catfish tastes like it just came out of the water. They have plenty of space inside or outside. They also have live music on weekends. The food is reasonably prices and delicious. There is plenty of parking and it is easy to get in and out. The best part is there is little to no wait.

Hamburgers are much better than their salads. Good quick service. Atmosphere of a HB joint. Very clean. Also has outside seating. Recommend.

If you go in expecting what looks and feels like a "boathouse" and wanting fried food/seafood, you have come to the right place for some good food! I personally love the friend chicken tenders and fries and their honey mustard. Their fried shrimp are huge and fantastic as well! I highly recommend this place for a stop off on the... More
