The Shady Grove cannot be beat as far as casual, summer dining goes. The grassy area is a great place to let kids run around and the restaurant provides coloring pages and books. The menu adds some Tex-Mex flavor to classic and the Chicken Fried Steak is a must. This a great place to visit for family dinner or when entertaining guests with kids that want to experience Austin.
Harrison’s TIP: You can sit inside in the A/C, but the best is outside under these really pretty trees and sometimes there are people playing music.
Spend the afternoon playing at Zilker Park before enjoying dinner at the Shady Grove. Zilker Park is beautiful, with plenty of space to play soccer and playgrounds to explore. Catch a ride on the Zilker Zephyr miniature train to catch a glimpse of Lady Bird Lake.
TIP: Bring cash to pay for parking
