More and more people are choosing Texas as their vacation destination and it's easy to see why. Whether you want to explore natural springs, experience glow-in-the-dark paddleboarding, or have dinner on the water, Texas has it all. Hula Hut on Lake Austin will give you dinner on the water like you've never had it before. You'll experience what life is like on an island without having to buy a plane ticket to Hawaii!

Hula Hut opened back in 1993 and since then has expanded their tasty menu, created the most insane drinks, and provided a totally unique dining experience. Palm Tree Hugger Nachos, Steak Tubular Taco, and Hawaiin Fajitas are just some of the items off their menu that make our mouths water. And their drink menu is exactly what we need on a hot summer night. 

The Hu-La-La is Hula Hut's signature cocktail and most Insta-worthy. You'll look like you're sipping from a fishbowl and for that reason, it's perfect for two! Save your money and sip on a nice, cold beverage with your boo.

You can dine on land or on the water, whichever you're in the mood for. Not many restaurants give you that option! At night, thousands of colored lights light up the entire area making the mood go from fun to romantic in seconds. 

If you're looking for more unique locations to dine in Austin, there's absolutely no shortage. Lake Travis has quite a few and even a nude beach you can hang out at. 

Hula Hut is open from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. most days and even later on Friday and Saturday. Grab your friends, boo, or family and take them out for a night they won't forget!
