Ski Shores is a treasure. Their lakefront setting little else matters. The location, service and food were very good. When you are there be sure to share your French fries with the turtles and huge fish.
I have been to Ski Shores on Lake Austin a couple of times before and really enjoyed it. This time there was a fundamental problem. I don't think that the chef tasted what he was putting out for us to eat. I ordered the Hummus...for my grandson and he took one bite and spat it out. I tasted it and it was so salty that it was inedible. The #1 job of a restaurant is to make sure that the food is the best it can be. this was a MAJOR FAIL.More
Ski Shores is exactly what such a restaurant should be. You can access by car or boat. They are laid back in every way. The menu is limited and food is very good for what it is. The setting is so beautiful that nothing else...should matter. Remember to feed the turtles, huge fish, du is abs swans. They prefer French fries.More
A great way to start the weekend is to share breakfast tacos overlooking the lake from the Ski Shores Waterfront restaurant. The menu is limited to start the day but the location overcomes about anything.
Have not eaten here in a while. Glad my wife suggested it. Really enjoyed sitting by the water. Had our dog with us. Relaxing and quiet on the night we were there with a wonderful view of the water and boats and boards passing by....This is not a place to get in and out of in a hurry. Service was a bit too slow initially, but that was fine and once our server engaged with us he was extremely accommodating and made the meal more enjoyable.
My wife had the fish tacos which she really enjoyed. My black and blue blue burger was excellent, although they forgot to put on the extra Patty that I asked for. The chicken wing appetizer was an A+, with blue cheese dressing.
Somewhat pricey in my opinion for basically a burger-joint, but the view and setting justifies the price as does the tasty food.More
Our spring weather led us to the wonderful Ski Shores Waterfront restaurant experience. The food is beach style and good enough. This is a place for the wonderful lake front experience that is hard to top. Make sure to feed the fish, turtles and turtles.
Ski Shores has been an Austin Landmark since the early 50's and remains unspoiled to this day. Their location is still unspoiled and you feel like its a throw back with the construction and surroundings.
On the weekends from 9AM to 11AM they serve breakfast...tacos which are so large that they really should call it a burrito. Everything is freshly cooked and they use good quality ingredients. What really makes it special is that you can get of these tasty items for $3. Additionally, they serve Mimosa's for the same $3.
Its a special place that pleases the pallets as well as the eyes in a totally relaxing environmentMore
Stopped here for lunch with some relatives. Service was very good. They got my order wrong, but quickly corrected it. We had to sit one row of tables over from waterside because of all of the flying insects. Still it was a pleasant experience with...good food at reasonable prices.More
