Always known for its view of the sunset over Lake Travis, this place has become an entertainment complex, offering art, souvenirs, and live music, as always. Attractions include Oasis Texas Brewing Company and Lakeview Winery.
Nothing tests the mettle of a musician like having to compete with the best sunsets in Texas. Opened by Beau Theriot in 1982, the Oasis has grown from a remote ranch house on the western edge of town to a four-tiered food and entertainment fortress overlooking Lake Travis with a capacity of 2,500. Neither a 2005 fire nor the 2010-13 drought stanched the venue’s momentum. During the spring and summer months, the Oasis features live music on weekends and select Thursdays. Frequent fliers include venerable all-purpose show band Rotel & the Hot Tomatoes and Eighties glam-metal specialists LC Rocks.
In addition to the sandwiches on fresh bread, daily soups, and hand-tossed salads, you'll find tasty pastries.
One of few Asian eateries in the Lakeway area, this Chinese restaurant offers daily lunch and dinner specials as well as delivery.
This unassuming storefront just uphill from the lake still offers the beloved crawfish cakes with Mermaid sauce, as well as a hearty gumbo, crusty po-boys, and a complete by-the pound menu.
Down-home Southern cuisine with a heavy emphasis on pickling, including pickled deviled eggs, creamy pickle spread on some of the burger and sandwich options, and a pickle bar.
Whether sweet or savory, the pies emphasize house-made ingredients and imaginative flavor combinations. The desserts are enormous, so don’t shoulder the burden alone.
The sister restaurant to Apis restaurant & Apiary features hand-milled sourdough bread, considered salads, and wood-fired pizza made from locally sourced and sustainable ingredients.
