Second Helpings

Springhill Catfish Company

Hwy. 71 W. & RR 620, 263-3244

Sun-Thu, 11am-9pm; Fri-Sat, 11am-9:30pm

If that visit to Lake Travis makes you hungry for fish, the Springhill folks will be happy to do all the work for you. The crew can all relax with a cold brew or a bottomless tankard of iced tea after a long day on the water and eat their fill of fish. Steer clear of the gumbo (it was bland on our last visit) but chow down on the very reliable catfish featured whole, in fillet dinners, or tasty nuggets with the traditional Southern sides of hush puppies, fries, cole slaw, and beans. Several good choices for non-fish eaters, as well.
