After visiting the restaurant I felt the need to write a review on how excellent the food and service was. My family and I have lived in the Austin area for over 8 years and we have visited many places on the lake. We have yet to find a restaurant with such amazing food and great customer services as the Shore Club Restaurant. I could not speak more highly of this place. We got the BBQ wrapped shrimp as an appetizer and it was to die for. It was as if they caught the shrimp fresh that day. Then I personally got the steak and let me tell you what...it literally melted in my mouth and was about two or three inches thick. Plenty to fill me up. Ive been to Ruths Chris, Perrys, Gumbos and although those places are great, I feel like the steak here at the Shore Club was so much better! It was tender, cooked perfectly (just the way I liked it), didnt have too much seasoning. It was just the perfect amount of elegant taste! LOVED IT! I also have a few drinks, I think one was called the "Blue Margarita"! Yummy! The service was great. Plenty of people on staff to see that our needs were attended to and was always graciously taking our plates and cleaning up to make sure the table looked nice. She asked us on a few occasions if we needed anything and for that she got a great TIP! I know this is a lot to write for a review, but I really think this place should get the attention it deserves! EXCELLENT, EXCELLENT, EXCELLENT!
We went today for the first time and thought this water park was just perfect for our 5 year old and 2 year old boys. The 5 year old did the tall chute and tube slides, Flash Flood and Roadrunner, over and over. He just loved it. He did the sidewinder only once as the angle of the drop scared him. He loved the Gators Crossing rope balancing area. He was not tall enough to ride the tube slide, Texas Twister. The 2 year old loved just floating around in the Gator Crossing and Lazy Lagoon pools. The pirate ship has 2 slides and a tube to crawl through. He loved it. The 5 year old loved the pirate ship too (even though he was technically too tall to be in that area). I loved the fact that there was a lot of shaded picnic table areas to set our cooler and belongings. I thought it was awesome that we could bring in our own food and drinks. The parking lot also had a lot of shaded areas so our car wasnt blazing when we left to go home. We stayed for 4 hours, but the kids would have loved to have stayed much longer. We got our tickets that morning from Randalls. So, instead of paying $21 each, we paid $16 each. The 2 year old was free.
We went today, my 10 year old is in love and has asked, at least three times, if we could move closer. That alone gets a big thumbs up. My parents are in, from out of town, and we drove quite a ways for something fun to do and he really enjoyed himself and it was good bonding time for relatives we dont see as often as wed like. It wasnt very crowded, but Im sure thats because high season is over. The downside? Algal growth all over the bottom and sides of the pool making it slippery, broken chairs and lounges everywhere. Swim up bar closed. Poolside bar closed. You have to hike up to the main building, which is quite a ways to haul for a drink or snack/meal. The food was ok, a little overpriced, but tasty enough. If the bars are closed because high season is over, cool, but then the prices should reflect the reduced services available. We felt it was pretty expensive to get in and would have appreciated being able to have poolside service to help justify the ticket prices.
Not really too impressed by this waterpark. It is extremely far away to get to on a less than desirable drive. The parking is in a rocky parking lot across the windy road from the park. The park is hard to tell where it is from the road. There are only a few "rides" here not much to mention about them. Only the taco slide is one that is worth it. Its fairly frightening at first. The water is from the lake so its questionable. The chairs are all run down and much of them are dirty of moldy. There are mosquitoes so bring lots of bug spray. There is a bar so that is the only good part. There is food here as well but it can be fairly expensive. Not really a place to mark on the map to go to. The staff is very friendly and helpful though.
We bought 4 groupon tickets to give Volente Beach a try. I checked their website on July 3rd (when groupons became available) and they stated they are open Wed-Sat and would be open Wed July 5th. NOTHING on their website stating they wouldnt be open on July 5th. My sons birthday is July 5th and my husband took the day off to take my son to the water park. They decided not to open July 5th. This must have been a last minute decision as even when you call them they say NOTHING about being closed. So we spent $48 on tickets we cannot use now and my husband took time off work. VERY DISAPPOINTING! We will never be back and I want a refund but I cant get anyone to call me back.

My daughter and I went to Volente Beach on June 25, 2010. The park is really small and was quite crowded. For 22.00 a ticket after 2 hours it was pretty much time to go. We have been to the Lakeway Swim Center this summer and for 7 dollars for adults and 5 dollars for kids---it has 3 of the 5 "rides" Volente Beach has and is much, much nicer--with ample space, shade, picnic tables and is very clean and well managed. There are plenty of life guards who are actually watching the children and the girls were in the water the whole time we were there--about 6 hours. I reccomend Lakeway Swim Center which is open to the public--just not for the residents of Lakeway.

Most people dont realize that the people is filled with the lake water, so based on what the lake conditions is that day, that is the pools condition, so it is not dirty. But we were there today, had a really good time but most of all I was really impressed with the attention the lifeguards gave to all the swimmers. Even though most of them were only young adults to teenagers, they all seem to take their job very seriously. When change of shift came, the one on duty continuously stayed alert until the new guard gave the okay, they were ready to take over. They continuously walked around the pool and slide areas to make sure everyone was safe. Great Job

We were visiting Austin and decided to see this park after viewing many bright colored ads. It advertises a large beach and swimming in Lake Travis. In actuality, there was a tiny area of the lake that was roped off which we were not allowed to pass. The water was too shallow and too small an area to swim. The rides are directed to young kids- my 19 year old daughter got stuck on one chute as there was no water to propel her. Too few rinky-dink rides, no lazy river, and too small of a pool. We were sorry we had to actually pay $5 for parking and way to much for tickets to get in. Never again.....
