    The food is ok, margarita was good, the view is amazing but the Pokemon is 🔥lit🔥!!! The mermaid poke spot draws a lot of pokemon. Drop a lure, get some drinks and enjoy the view and Pokemons.

    Beautiful view and good margaritas. Come here on a lazy weekend after brunch to relax. Food isn't great. The burger is decent. But the view is worth the trip. Best is to get here via lime creek road.

    Very nice view, great for afternoons... But... The service is very slow, their food is not the greatest one, servers are very busy all the time... I had to stand up 3 times to look for the waiter

    The drinks are cold, and there's lots of room. It's a great combination—jaw-dropping sunsets and the jaw-dropping size of this joint. Get there early—the sun drops fast. Read more

    Great place to bring folks from out of town or for the view. I live nearby and can't imagine going there because of "the good drinks and the great food" - cuz neither the drinks nor the food are good

    One of my ABSOLUTE favorite places to go especially in the summer. SPECTACULAR sunsets, outdoor dining on several different levels overlooking Lake Travis. Great food + cold Corona & Shiner Bock. Read more

    Julie Claire Morrison of Confessions of a Napper says, “The Oasis has the best view in town. Situated on the shores of Lake Travis, the patio becomes drenched in the sunset each day.”

    The Perfect Margarita and the Margarita Cheesecake were great. The food was like eating at an amusement park, passable if you didn't go for the food. The view is the reason to go.

    This is amazing. On a perfect day, with a perfect group of friends this is all you need. Go when its still hot and sunny for the atmosphere then stay until sunset for the experience.

    Ideal spot to take visitors. Killer view and drinks. The food has improved over the years but is still a little pricey. Well deserved rep as a must-be place at sunset.
  • Dario S.
    A must-visit place when visiting Lake Travis! It's a huge complex of different eating and drinking areas. The atmosphere here is outstandingly chill and tropical. Try the alien space ship!

    This place sits 3,000 people! Two hour wait time. Skip it by sitting on third floor. Get fish tacos. Spectacular view. Live music. Crazy parking. Quite difficult to get here.

    Great views. Wish I could say more about the service. Don't get a table on the extreme end of either side or your waiter will probably forget about you.

    View - great. Drinks - great. Food - absolute shit. I'd be willing to bet most of it is pre-made and reheated. Everything I ordered I can make better at home.

    The view is good, but the food and service isn't. It's mainly run by 15 year olds who don't really seem to care much - fair enough, the place reminds me of a cheesy holiday resort

    This place has lost its charm since they rebuilt... it feels like a mini-Domain now, no point in going here anymore. Way over the top, overpriced nonsense Shame on you, Mr. Theriot.

    The Oasis has live music Friday-Sunday nights in Starlight Terrace which can be indoor or open air venue. Rain or shine - acoustics are great!

    Wine Weds = 1/2 off all bottles and glasses! The bad news: wine list blows. Oh well, $15 bottle of Lamarca is better than $30 bottle of Lamarca.
  • Megan M.
    This is amurrica! Please avoid all food and just drink the margaritas with a Chambord floater (ok and maybe the free chips and salsa)
  • Jeannie V.
    Horrible service, worse management. Waiter was slow and had a bad attitude. Must have learned it from Nathan, the bar manager, because he was extremely rude. Will not be back!

    Pros: the views are terrific, the sunsets are to die for, the appetizers are good! Cons: a bit expensive Overall: worth it for the view

    Great place to hang out and relax. Even with a lot of people around just sitting there looking over out of the lake is serene.

    This place is great for sunsets and beautiful views. The food is ok, so you probably don't want to make the trip just for that.

    Call ahead to see if there are sunset view seats available. No reservations, but good to know before going out there.

    Order the Combo Fajitas for 1 person; trust me, it can fill up two people perfectly fine in terms of a regular-sized meal.

    Get a table where you can watch the sunset and have a margarita. Really lovely. Food was just alright though. Typical Mexican affair

    Current employee here, my advice, of all the meals I have eaten, the piratas, chicken enchiladas, nachos and fireballs are the best.

    The view is awesome, so nobody seems to care the service, food, and drinks suck. $17.00 for a plate of nachos with meat added? Ridiculous. Why am I here?

    Best sunset view in Austin, but don't bother having dinner there. Order drinks, eat some appetizers and leave to get good food elsewhere.

    The view is amazing but the menu and the food kinda sucks. Come here to drink something, watch the sunset and go have dinner somewhere else.

    Go for the view and the cool shops in the area. The foods not to die for, but its pretty cheap for the 15 mile view.

    View is awesome but the food is so so and especially for what they charge. $13.50 for cheese enchiladas...seriously?!

    The food here isn't great but the scenic view is amazing. The patio is heated so you can enjoy it even in the winters.

    It is a perfect spot for photos. The place is huge and impressive. Service can be slow and I feel like its a tourist trap.

    Chicken enchiladas on point! So yummy! Views are amazing (huge spider on chair was scary) I would go again! 😊

    If it's not busy, ask for Theresa or Bethany (if it's busy, you'll wait for forever to get a table in their sections, though).

    Ask for Blake. Great service and very friendly waiter. Less time worrying about the food means more time to enjoy the view!

    If you came to The Oasis but just aren't in the mood to eat a full meal, their key lime pie makes for a nice snack.

    The view is georgeous. The food for being Tex-Mex is good but overpriced. I would recommend only because of the view.

    The food at the main restaurant is mediocre, Soleil has an awesome softshell crab burger. Enjoy the sunset!
