This place is kid friendly, non fussy, laid back and good eats. We enjoyed everything from burgers to shrimp to salads. You can go after a day at the lake and not worry about getting cleaned up. Plenty of room and looks like some days...More

The Boat House Grill is nothing fancy by far but very casual and with catchy decor (no pun intended). If you are in Austin Texas and are planning to go out to Lake Travis be sure and make this place you stop for wonderful fried...More

We ate dinner at this location after a recommendation from our hotel staff. Easy to find, neat trendy restaurant. Food was very good and quick.

Stopped yesterday for sandwiches and beer after spending the morning on Lake Travis. Good food, cold beer and soda. Very fast service, and great attitude.

Drop by for a burger or take out. Very good but not the best in Austin or just down the road on 620. Try the new Mighty Fine Burger trailer just next door. Best burger in Austin and maybe in Texas.

It's been a few months since my last visit and I stopped off with a friend for take-outs. We devoured the catfish and fries and argued about the coleslaw. Our only problem with this meal was that they are soooo stingy with their coleslaw. It...More
