Fodor's Review

A 2005 fire destroyed most of the wooden outdoor deck seating that made the cliffside Oasis–Lake Travis such a draw, but the Austin institution has been rebuilt and re-emerged with perhaps even more spirit; some consider the food much improved as well. Scenic views make this a popular spot for sunset dinners—sometimes too popular, as weekend crowds can be overwhelming in nice weather. If you can, try to get one of the tables overlooking Lake Travis (arrive early).

The menu includes shrimp, burgers, fajitas, and margaritas.

Tourist Trap

Thimble-sized drinks and Dairy-Queen food. The view is nice but not exclusive. Too crowded. Only reason to go is dancing.

The only reason to go here...

is for the spectacular view. High atop Lake Travis you can take in magnificent views or sunsets from the outside tables. The resaurant looks nice as well. A little over priced and the food and service is just average.

If it weren't for the view...

Food is mediocre bar food, not worth the money. But, if you're in the area it's the best sunset over the lake...sit outside have a few drinks. Just avoid the food.

Great View, Gross Food

The view is second to none, I'll give it that, but the food is inexcusably bad. Nachos tasted like canned chicken. Absolutely gross. Margaritas are not very good either - no fresh juice to be found! Do yourself a favor and skip this one.

Don't Miss The View but MISS the food!

We were on a weekend get-away last week and decided to enjoy the Oasis view. We were hoping the food had improved but it got worse! The gazpacho was like pureed tomatoes - not a chopped veggie in sight. The fajitas looked and tasted like chunks of pot roast! Have a drink and dine elsewhere!

Cocktails At Sunset

Although the food is not that great, I love to sit on the patio, at sunset or at night. The view of Lake Travis is spectacular. A perfect setting for chatting with friends and enjoying cocktails.
