I have to go to the Oasis for dinner tomorrow night. What's the least bad thing I can order?

      Actually, the food has gotten much better than it used to be. I think with the rebuild they went ahead and worked on the menu and new cooks.

      Hopefully, you'll be pleasantly surprised. And ya can't beat the view of the lake at sunset.

        Not improved. I took the easy way out and ordered a burger, which was fine and was actually cooked to the specified medium, instead of the usual well done. Others at the table order the Tex-Mex options and reported their food as merely "edible".

          the mushroom enchiladas pass as food but every time I've been there the service basically stunk. I take out of towners to Oasis for cocktails and a couple photos, but prefer the Hill Country view on the deck at BerryHill with a grilled fish taco. Sure, no water, but what looks like a 20 mile view westward.
