Got elk? You’ll find that here and more—including wild boar, pheasant, duck, axis deer, rabbit and other woodland creatures that are cute, sure, but also delicious. Chef-owner Jeff Blank has created pizzazz here on the lake since 1975, and new chef Kelly Casey (the restaurant’s former sous chef) continues the trend. Try the mixed grill for a sampling of all things protein, or the six-course Chef Tasting Menu for a true smorgasbord. Not that hungry? There’s a three-course Chef Tasting Menu just for you. Note: This is a hike from downtown, so plan to leave early enough to get out to Lake Travis (it takes between 30 minutes to an hour to travel here from downtown Austin). Better yet, make later reservations (like 9), then go down the street to the Oasis and catch a drink and the sunset before dinner.
