Top Rate Service & Food!

Top Rate Service & Food! Went their last night as a family of 10 and boated up. I was worried as we didn’t call ahead for a table for 10, but they saw us on the boat dock, counted heads, and had the table ready by the time we had made it up to the restaurant. In my 24 years of living on Lake Travis, I have never had that level of service so kudos to just that. … Read More

Great food and drinks

Great food and drinks. Water front atmosphere was great. Loved that we could take home the cups that we were served. (Still use them). We have been a few times, Once by car, and others by boat. Car parking can be a bit tough, so be aware. Boat access is great. We will return, probably many more times.

Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful… 5 stars

Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful… 5 stars for their food, service, beautiful views, and chill environment. Feel free to dress up for date night or pull up to their dock in your flips and tank top. As others have mentioned parking is a tad cumbersome and if you have mobility issues you can be dropped off right by their tram and be transported to almost.. Read More

This place is a hidden gem!

This place is a hidden gem! Location is beautiful. The service was amazing and the food was really delicious. The first time there and it was an incredible experience. I was recommended this place for its location. The oasis is great but incredibly loud and busy. This was the perfect location. Quieter and not as boisterous. I will come back again for sure!

Taken back by the beauty

After a long winding trip through the hills we came upon the shack and we were taken back by the beauty. What a wonderful job with the”nature trail” down to the dock where we enjoyed a great appetizer of queso,quac & salsa w/ bottomless warm chips. Yummmm!
Hubby and I both got chicken alfredo and it was delicious! Super spicy with the jalepeno kick, but the margaritas cooled us off just fine. Great atmosphere, server was rushed, but polite. If we lived in Austin, we would be regulars for sure. Highly recommend!

The evening was beautiful with a sunset

The evening was beautiful with a sunset looking over the lake. The food was amazing. I had the grilled steak kabobs, bourbon glaze, w/mashed potatoes and grilled veggies. My daughter had the American burger and salt and pepper fries. All was delicious and the service was excellent. Beautiful place, calm and great food.

We absolutely LOVE Shack 512!

We absolutely LOVE Shack 512! My husband and I make this our weekly “lunch date” spot when the weather is awesome. Lake views are spectacular and it’s a perfect hideaway from most of the Austin crowd if you hit it at the right time! They take reservations if you need to go a bit later and the staff is awesome too!

Such a beautiful, serene, refreshing location in nature.

Such a beautiful, serene, refreshing location in nature. Delicious food and drinks at a fair price, a great location with friendly service if you need to refill while out on Lake Travis! (Plus it’s where I proposed to my future wife back in September, just on the point down from the Yacht Club.)

They had a wonderful table ready when we arrived

My girlfriend and I had a wonderful experience. We made a quick call from our boat to see if our dog could join, turns out they are very pet friendly. They had a wonderful table ready when we arrived, drinks on the table and a bowl for the dog. The Mexican Martinis , service, food, atmosphere we’re all outstanding, we will be back.

Romantic atmosphere

My husband and I went to Shack 512 yesterday for appetizers and drinks. We ordered pulled porch nachos and fries. both were exceptional! my husband was very impressed with his bloody mary & they even made my favorite drink, the lemon drop, although it wasn’t on the menu! Our waitress, Bazae, was wonderful! I couldn’t be happier with our experience there & can’t wait to come back
