The Water Trough
Serving up Austin-inspired Local Grub & Signature Cocktails
Mosey over to the Water Trough and enjoy the best in local Texas-style grub as well as a piece of the live music scene for which Austin is so famously known. Featuring a variety of artists and music from country to blue grass to rock, this Texas-Hill country style eatery offers a sophisticated interior built in a barn for a rustic look but a truly chic experience.
Serving up modern food and drink and featuring cozy home-style furniture, the Water Trough boasts a large wood burning fireplace inside with community seating. Plus, you can step onto the large outdoor deck and enjoy fire pits and water features.
Live Music Every Wednesday through Saturday!
The Water Trough takes you back to a simpler time and place. Enjoy signature favorites from our smoked brisket tacos to our soon-to-be famous chili served with “absolutely no beans” - and don't forget your corn muffin. Sit back and take in the beauty of the landscape while enjoying our signature cocktail - "The Chill Cowboy,” served up in a mason jar and made with vodka infused nectar sun tea, hibiscus liqueur, peach puree, lemon juice, and honey syrup.
