The communities surrounding Lake LBJ are known for their breathtaking views, high value real estate, and lake access. That's all well and good, of course, but we think that Horseshoe Bay, for one, should also be known for its delicious restaurants -- and these four in particular: 

1) Lantana Restaurant

Previously known as "Lantana Bar & Grill," Lantana Restaurant and Bar is located within Horseshoe Bay Resort, in the main hotel tower. The restaurant is open all day and serves Southwestern-style breakfast, lunch, and dinner, while the nearby bar offers a sizeable selection of wines and cordials. On game days, you can watch your favorite teams play on the bar's flat screen and on most Saturday nights, you'll enjoy live music while you eat. 

200 Hi Circle North. 830-598-2511. Open 6:30 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. MenuWebsite.

2) Horseshoe Bay Yacht Club

If you really want to experience all that Horseshoe Bay Resort has to offer with respect to dining, you'll want to visit the resort's flagship restaurant at the Yacht Club. Open Wednesdays through Saturdays in the evenings, the Yacht Club Dining Room offers a sophisticated lakeside dining experience -- and with a dress code to boot. If you're in the mood for seafood, steak, and other elegant dishes, the Horseshoe Bay Yacht Club is for you.

1009 Horseshoe Bay Blvd. 830-598-2511. Open Wed-Sat 6-9 p.m. Menu. Website.

3) Hole in 1 Sports Bar & Grill

Head over to Hole in 1 if you're of a mind to spend your evening munching on nachos and buffalo wings, enjoying happy hour, and rooting for your favorite sports teams. Besides sporty appetizers, the restaurant offers a whole menu's worth of entrees, including burgers, quesadillas, tacos, wraps, chicken fried steak, and tilapia.

7401 RR 2147. 830-596-2024. Open Mon-Wed 11 a.m. to 11 p.m., Thurs-Sat 11 a.m. to 12 a.m., Sun 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Menu. Website.

4) Pizza Mia

If you're in the mood to devour a tasty pizza pie, then you're in luck. Horseshoe Bay has its very own pizza parlor: Pizza Mia. Located along FM 2147, Pizza Mia's menu provides a number of "favorite combinations," as well as the opportunity to create one's own pizza. But Pizza Mia isn't just all about pizza; they also serve tasty salads, calzones, sandwiches, and more.

4119 W FM 2147 Ste #3. 830-693-6363. Open Tues-Sat 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., Mon-Sun 4 to 8 p.m. Menu. Website.

5) El Jardin

El Jardin is what you would call a "hole-in-the-wall" Mexican restaurant. This company doesn't maintain much of an online presence, but frankly, they really don't have to. The locals know where to go to get good Tex Mex and now, you do too. Say hello to Doobie, the El Jardin's personable parrot, for us!

4901 W FM 2147. 830-693-2038. Open Mon-Sun 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. Menu. Website.

If you're in Horseshoe Bay with an appetite, give these five restaurants a chance to tickle your tastebuds. Locals love 'em!
