This is a really cool, laid-back floating restaurant that's located in the neighborhood. We love the Queso Del Gar - a must! Don't forget to see the GIANT catfish!

The Gnarly Gar is a restaurant on the water, it's literally on a boat dock. They have live music on the weekends and the food is great. Highly recommend!

The Gar is our floating bar and restaurant and is a real must for anyone visiting the neighborhood. It's family-friendly and packed with boaters from all over Lake Travis. Be sure to get online and check the live music calendar for nighttime events. Adults and kiddos alike go nuts for the World…
