Food & Drink
Casual Dining to Special Date Night
Small town doesn’t mean limited food and drink choices. Kingsland and the Highland Lakes offer a variety of options from family reunions to romantic evenings. Savor the freshly made pizzas at Angel’s Pizza and Patio 2900 at Boat Town; mouth-watering brisket at Spyke’s BBQ; and sizzling fajitas at La Tequila Jalisco. Looking for a date night out on the patio? Head over to Hooper’s, the newly remodeled restaurant next to the historic Antlers Inn. Perfect spots for a soup and salad lunch with friends include The Potato Shack and “The Spot” at Wakepoint LBJ.
If in-and-out is your goal, Kingsland Chamber members Buddies 1-Stop, Dairy Queen and Subway are open for business. Craving something sweet? You can’t beat the homemade pies at Bluebonnet Café or Crazy Gals Café. The best coffee and cold drinks await you at the Lazy Heron and the Thirsty Armadillo.
Beer & Wine
The Hill Country is known for its abundance of wineries and the Highland Lakes do not disappoint! From Bertram to Buchanan Dam to Burnet, visits to Decadent Saint Winery, Torr Na Lochs, Perissos and Uplift Vineyards promise memorable tasting of Texas’ finest wines, live music and incredible views. Cold beers and local wines are close at hand at Triple C Beverage Barn drive-through and on tap at many Kingsland restaurant menus. Taste it all this October!

“My visits to Kingsland have been incredibly affordable and fun! The lakes are beautiful, and the people seem to be on a first name basis in so many places! Granite Lake Rentals is by far THE perfect place to stay. Tranquility and comfort in the cutest tiny homes. Surrounded by nature for peaceful sleeping and reflection. My favorite casual dining spots include my favorite—Mr. Gatti’s! The Kingsland location is clean and has an entire game room for the kiddos.”
“Kingsland has a diverse, laid-back nightlife with a little something for everyone. We visited Boat Town Burger Bar and Wakepoint on Lake LBJ, accessible by boat or car, and we sat on the outdoor decks and enjoyed an ice-cold beverage and the lake breeze while listening to live music and observing the boating activities on the water. We caught stunning scenic views and a sunset over Buchanan Dam on Inks Lake at Reverend Jim’s Dam Pub, and we took in an Astros game at Pat’s over a bucket of beer.”
