Retail Roundup: Lago Vista Area Shopping, Dining and Entertainment

Surrounded by water, Lago Vista’s shorelines are a recreational paradise, ideal for slowing down to relax and appreciate nature. But when the mood strikes, there’s also plenty of shopping and dining in the area too.

Dinner comes with a view in Lago Vista and plenty of options for a night out. Locals often find their favorite restaurant on Lohmans Ford Road, including Bam’s Roadhouse for burgers and fries or Deedee’s Tacos for something a little spicier. Other popular eateries include J&J BBQ & Burgers, Wok ‘N’ Grill, and Latte Vista Café and Coffee Shop.

When the occasion calls for more formal dining, Hudson’s on the Bend lies just across the river and is operated by world-renowned chefs Jeff Blank and Kelly Casey. Offering bold takes on American classics like pecan-smoked duck breast or wild boar sweet potato hash, only the highest quality local ingredients are used. They even provide gourmet cooking workshops for those looking to experiment at home in their own kitchens.
