Rusty Rudder is a bar, restaurant, and concert venue on Lake Travis in Austin, TX. The spot is an old Austin landmark where Carlos and Charlie's (another restaurant/bar and Austin hotspot) was located for many years until it closed in 2008. Rusty Rudder Lake Travis will attract all lake-goers -- they can park their boats on the marina and walk up for a great party with food, live music, beer and beach volleyball. Different events/nights will attract different demographics, including family nights, biker (motorcycle nights), various musical genres and concert acts, etc.
Simultaneously, our enclosed restaurant overlooking the lake will serve a more refined clientele who live in the area -- steaks, fish, wine and cocktails -- for nights when locals want to hop in their sports cars and take their dates out for a delicious meal and amazing view of the lake.
Overall, Rusty Rudder Lake Travis is a place for all Austinites to come enjoy one of the best parts of living in Austin -- the lake! We are locally owned, and will embody Austin culture and values -- lots of fun, chill vibes, great food, and great times for all -- whether you're a tech tycoon looking for a nice but casual dinner spot and a place to be 'seen' -- or a 20-something looking to party on the lake, play beach volleyball and listen to the best live music Austin has to offer -- Rusty Rudder Lake Travis is where Austinites want to be.
