Dining, Entertainment & Shopping
Once you’ve relocated, don’t wait to begin sampling the outstanding Lake Life restaurants — all of which provide delicious food and fun atmospheres.
Craving tacos and Tex-Mex cuisine? Kick back and enjoy your food, plus a tropical cocktail (or two) at Hula Hut. Next door, Abel’s on the Lake serves up a menu of American dishes and craft beers. Locals also love the menu offerings at The Oasis on Lake Travis, Steiner Ranch Steakhouse, Bar 620, and County Line BBQ.
With the Austin Lake Life real estate and neighborhoods occupying so much space, there are plenty of convenient places for residents to shop.
