The Oasis Austin – Menu and Other Things like… Do they take reservations at the Oasis?
No, they do not take reservations and if you want to visit during the peak time – which is sunset on the weekends be prepared for a long wait. The wait doesn’t have to be painful though! The complex is full of art, music and you can carry your drink around with you. Admire the view while you wait!
The best time to see the view without a wait is lunch. We got there right as it opened for lunch and had ZERO wait. It was quiet and we had a section of the restaurant all to ourselves.
The Oasis Austin – Menu and Other Things like… The Food
I was anxious to try the food because I heard it really isn’t very good. I had the shrimp lettuce wraps and they were really good. Did I get lucky? Maybe but even if you don’t get lucky then eat chips and salsa! The basket of chips and salsa will fill you up though and it is FREE.

NO pets allowed. Even though Austin was listed at #2 in being pet-friendly, there are no pets allowed here. BUT, if you have your pet with you AND a carrier, they will keep your pet in the carrier in their office while you eat. So, don’t be afraid to pass through here during your road trip with the family and Fido.
NO boat access. Yes, the Oasis is on Lake Travis and there are boats out there to watch, but you can’t combine the two and just float up.
