What’s more fun than being on the lake in spring and summer? Seeing all the people, enjoying the waves, watching the sunset glisten off the water or just sun bathing. Austin has many activities to do near or on the lake. Something else you can enjoy is dining off the docks on one of the many restaurants on the lake.
Abels on the Lake is one of those restaurants, with a huge covered deck on the water, two bar areas and a great staff. You can enjoy their great atmosphere any day of the week, especially when the weather cooperates. But to get the most for your buck go during their happy hour 4-6pm. You get to enjoy their great seafood appetizers for under $5, some local pints and vodkas for under $4. Love oysters? Those are $0.75 on the half shell.
One of their popular apps that was recommended was the Crispy Calamari, its comes breaded and fried with banana, cherry and jalapeño peppers with a trio of sauces. They also offer mozzarella sticks, fried pickles, sliders, nachos and quesadillas to share before the main course.
