Awesome Time!!!! – Some buddies and I drove down from Ft. Hood over Labor Day Weekend and we needed some chill time. Nate and Corey were our bartenders and we had an awesome time. Great drinks, great service, hot chicks, what else could you ask for? I don't understand some of the other reviews that are listed for this place..it was a great time. Definately will be back and tellin all my buds to come down with me.

Terrible, terrible, terrible. – The food is awful - even the chips and salsa were bad. Waitstaff were nice, but a little slow and forgetful. Drinks were weak. Yes, it is on the lake but the view is not worth putting up with the bad food. If you are looking for good food, drinks and a lake view go to Hula Hut instead and don't waste your time here.

Great Time!! – I went to CnC nad had the best time!! The staff was great and the food was really impressive. I have been in the summer and agree that the service can be slow but with that many people there to eat and party you hae to expect a little pause in your party. I cannot wait for the Summer!!

A Dissapointment – We were visiting this place for the first time and were dissapointed with rude and obnoxious wait staff. The glasses with drinks half full were snached by the wait staff, so we had to get the fresh ones. This happened twice! When we tryed to speak with the manager about it, we were ignored. After that the evening was spoiled and we did not care for music or dancing anymore.

Worst place on lake Travis – Went for a stressless night at the lake, give the worst table on the deck. Watch 3 others groups seated in the good table that were open when we were seated. When the 4 group was seated and waited on after 20 min and we were still waiting for someone to serve us we left. They didn't even care. Will never go back.

This casual lakefront Southwestern eatery boasts knockout views from a dockside patio. – In Short
Nestled on Lake Travis about 25 minutes from downtown, it's much more than just a restaurant. It has a boat dock and the expansive decks offer wonderful views of the lake and sunsets; many nights feature live music. The menu includes more than 80 different items like salads, catfish, mesquite-grilled burgers, fajitas and baby back ribs. There's also a kids' menu with items like hot dogs and grilled cheese sandwiches.

Docks to park your boat, Fast seating, drinks to knock your socks off, fast and friendly service, wonderful place to watch the sun set, boat rental place next door @ Just for Fun. Lots of parking but if you get there late there will be a walk. Concerts in the spring and summer, great local acts. you do pay for the service and the service we got was wonderful for a large party that we had ( 30 ) set on the patio and had 2 waiters and we wanted for nothing. Keep up the good work Carlos n Charlies. We will be back.

Don't Bother! – We've been to CnC several times. This last time we came very early to get a seat outside for the concert. We ordered drinks and food. While we were eating we were told we had to leave...seats were for the bands family. We stayed to finish our meal and were then told to leave again...seats were for the radio station. No signs anywhere!! The whole 9 hrs. we were there the seats were never filled while they were being guarded. Management was so rude and told us to leave if we didn't like it. Our friends and us will not be back. Over priced drinks and food and bad management...go to the Oasis for a better view, nice staff or anywhere else but CnC.

Waste of time/money – Service was not good, and the place was not full either. Overpriced food and beer. Burger was gross, tuna was dried out the point of rubber, mexican stuff was ok, but not for 12-15 bucks a plate.

The view is average, go to Hula or Oasis if you want a view.
