Restaurant suggestions in Lost Pine (near Hyatt)

waldrons Mar 13, 2013 10:13 PM

We're spending 3 nights at Hyatt Lost Pine and would like to not eat every night at the hotel. Is there anything within a 15 minute drive? We're especially looking for local food - BBQ, chicken-fried steak, or innovative local chefs doing great food of any type.
Also anything good for lunch nearby if we tear ourselves away from the resort during the day? Maybe in Bastrop?

    This past week, a friend of mine from Bastrop recommended Murphy's Steakhouse in Winchester... about 30 miles.

      Coming from San Francisco, where the whole city is 7 miles by 7 miles, driving 30 miles for dinner is a unique concept!! I'll check it out, though, thank you!

        Austin is about the same distance. Check out the Austin board for lots of options.

          Thanks, but I think both of these suggestions are a bit further than I want to drive at night, on unfamiliar roads, after a nice meal and some wine! Perhaps we'll just eat at the hotel... ;)

      Hi there. I am the PR director at Hyatt Lost Pines, and I can recommend several restaurants in downtown Bastrop, which is just 15 or so minutes from the resort. Among the best delights: Maxine's, Baxter's, the Bastrop Brewhouse and Lock's Drug Store for a milkshake or ice cream (and a gander at a drawer still marked for arsenic a la days gone by, but obviously filled w/ other items appropriate for nowadays). Additionally, a great and authentic BBQ stop is Benny's Barbecue, and it's only a mile east of our resort's front drive. If there's anything else you might need, our concierge team can make recommendations to you on-site! We look forward to welcoming you!

        Hi there! I've got Maxine's on the list already, but Lock's Drug Store sounds perfect... my husband loves milk shakes. And Benny's sounds great as well. Thanks!
