“The Signature Lake Austin Restaurant”
Reviewed June 8, 2012

Arrive by boat - it's the only way. If you can't, wear board shorts and bikini's. This is the real Austin - Tex Mex food at the Tom Miller Dam - the dividing line between Lake Austin and Town Lake.

Get the Chile Rellano - it's the best you will have. You absolutely have to sit outside.

“Mediocre food, nice setting”
Reviewed June 4, 2012 via mobile

Do not go here for the food. Though it is inexpensive. Go for the location and fun drink menu. Good location for a large group. Service is not their specialty - especially at the hostess station. They do not take reservations so plan accordingly and be patient. Do not order the fish tacos. The fish is frozen and very dry.

“How can you beat it?”
Reviewed May 28, 2012

A great tropical-style bar / restaurant on the lake?! Yes indeed. Enjoy the free chips and salsa while you drink a fresh fruit margarita and watch all the boats zooming back and forth on the lake. This was my first visit to Austin and we really enjoyed the Hula Hut. Our waitress was so sweet, and our food was really good. Got the Ahi Fish Tacos - really goooood!!
