Lake Austin Hot Spots

Located in downtown Austin, this unique lake provides activities for everyone.

Make sure and check out our boats and pricing so you can enjoy these great places from the water!

Bars and Restaurants

Abels on the Lake

This restaurant/bar is a great spot to post up and watch some sports. Now you don’t have to choose between the lake and a good game. You can have both! Along with great food, they also have over 60 beers on tap.

Hula Hut

This mix of Hawaiian and TexMex creates a unique cuisine experience. It’s the ideal escape from the Texas sun; just park your boat on the dock and go grab a margarita to cool off.

Ski Shores

This waterfront cafe has been around since the 1950’s and has become an iconic Austin eatery. They have all the good American classic food, from fried pickles to pizza.


The laid back atmosphere at Mozart’s helps maximize the visitors’ enjoyment when sipping their specialty coffee and delicious desserts. They have a great patio to kick back and enjoy the scenery. They also periodically provide live music outside on select days.

Hang-Out Spots


There are two coves on Lake Austin. One across from Hula Hut and the other next to the 360 Bridge. They are perfect for hanging out and partying with people or just relaxing in the water. Just throw down your anchor and enjoy the party.

Emma Long

Located right along the edge of Lake Austin, this park features boat docks and several swimming areas. If you feel like staying on the lake, both RV camping and tents are allowed on the park.

Remember, all of these places can easily be enjoyed from the water by making your reservation today with Float On!!
