The restaurant features plenty of room for your group with 200 seats and accessibility by land or by sea. Most people pull up to refuel after a day on the water, especially since this new dining spot on the Lake has already gained so much momentum. Others come from out of town for a mini adventure to get to the spot that was formerly the Café Blue.
You can’t beat the beautiful view while you enjoy some incredible cuisine. This restaurant offers a whole experience from accommodating boaters to offering Lake Travis beauty during your meal. You’ll have an easy time staying cool with all of the misting machines and fans found everywhere, and you’ll be able to bring a large party since the restaurant is huge. Wait in the lounge area off of the deck and check out the decks and turtles while you wait to be seated.
Once you locate the slightly hidden away restaurant, you’ll find that the experience is one-of-a-kind. Plan on a sophisticated meal with loved ones overlooking the water and eating to your heart’s content. With their big portions and appetizing entrees, you may find that belt needs loosened on the way out. You’ll want to start with an appetizer and fresh salad before diving into a plate of burgers, ribs, fresh fish, and seafood.
Most people order the Shrimp Bobbers, Jalapeno Lime Parmesan Chicken, and the grilled salmon. Don’t be shy about bringing the kids; children can order from the kid’s menu where the chicken tenders are a total hit. Since everything is made with high quality and focused on a signature taste, you’ll notice how everything is unique to Nik’s, from the house-battered chicken tenders to the house-stuffed shrimp, and even the signature salad dressings. Nik’s wants to make sure you love it and enjoy a friendly atmosphere while you’re there.
Your favorite part of going out for a meal may be the selection of cocktails, wine, and beer. You’ll love celebrating over drinks, enjoy the game on the big screen, and eating delicious entrees by the water. While you can stop in as early as 11am for lunch on the weekends or as early as 4pm on the weekdays for dinner, you’ll love stopping in around 8pm for a sunset dinner.
