“Good food great view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2013 via mobile

This restaurant perched on a cliff overlooking Lake Travis has been around for so long it seems timeless. Remodeled several times and called the sunset capital of Texas for good reason. Good food, plenty of space and make sure you sit on one of there dozens of small decks on so many levels you can count.

“What a view!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2013

This is a must see if in the Austin, Tx area or Lake Travis. They really did it right. Beautiful lake views, good food, and very nice establishment! I highly recommend! We went for the sunset one evening and had to go back the next day for lunch!

“Beautiful view, not much else”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2013

The view of Lake Travis is spectacular, even with the low water due to the drought. We went for a drink and the view, knowing the food is not that great. Service was adequate, but definitely not in the excellent category. Music was lacking (and this is Austin!). Lots of tourist boutique shops around the restaurant. Go for the view and as an attraction, but not for the food or service.

“Great view of Lake Travis”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2013

The view is the best part of this place, food is ok, not outstanding but not bad either, service is about average, did not have time to visit the shops, the last time I was there the shops were not, maybe the next trip I will do some shopping too, as I will do back....

“Good lunch with great view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2013

Although it was a pretty hot day in Austin we enjoyed a nice outdoor lunch overlooking Lake Travis. Fish tacos and spicey chicken sandwich were favorites.
