Like a zany tree house for adults, this restaurant is famous for its series of multilevel decks—more than 40—arranged some 450 feet above Lake Travis. There's no better view of glorious Texas sunsets and the surrounding Hill Country. The restaurant's proximity to the heavens may have contributed to a lightning strike that destroyed part of the complex in June 2005, but the owner began rebuilding immediately, and today you can barely see any aftereffects of Zeus' fury. Perhaps it was the quality of the food that made him so cross: The menu is thankfully unambitious—not veering much from fajitas, burgers, and the like—but the amazing view more than makes up for the lackluster cuisine. As such, the Oasis is best for munchies and margaritas. Do consider a designated driver: It's a curvy 25-minute drive back to downtown.

Open Mondays through Thursdays 11:30 am to 10 pm, Fridays 11:30 am to 11 pm, Saturdays 11 am to 11 pm, Sundays 11 am to 10 pm.
