Mammals have been gathering along waterfronts to eat since the first fish crawled forth upon the shore garnished with algae-flavored ramen noodles. Grab a bite on a succulent shore with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of tasty café fare at Ski Shores Café. A Lake Austin dining dock boasting scenic aquatic views, Ski Shores Café has sated the whale-sized hunger of seafarers and landlubbers alike since 1954. After a Six-Million Dollar Man–style reboot, Ski Shores Café is better, stronger, and faster, while still whipping up belly-filling burgers, bubbling pizzas, and a fleet of other menu items. Nosh on classic dishes such as the Scooter burger, a towering inferno of flavor featuring two sizzling patties piled with jalapeños and veggies ($11.50), or the Border burger, topped with grilled onions, jalapenos, and guacamole ($9.25), while polishing off a basket of fries ($5.45), fried pickles ($6.50), or okra ($6.50). Brunch, served weekends from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., includes omelettes ($8.99–$9.99), breakfast tacos ($3 each), and late morning eats for the kids ($3.99). A lively dining room brightens meals like a bioluminescent anglerfish, and a full-service back patio offers a serene view of graceful boating ballets and break-dance battles on Lake Austin.
