The Oasis

Live music and great food continue on the terrace at the "sunset capital of Texas." It's still the perfect ending to a day on the lake.

Roaring Fork

The rustic decor – stone, metal, leather, and antlers – and hearty Western entrées with robust side dishes welcome carnivores.

South Congress Cafe

The inspired Southwestern fare at this relaxed, upscale eatery features beef milanesa, a traditional dish with an inventive, spicy spin. Other distinctive dishes include wild boar chile pozole and the lamb lollipop trio.
