The restaurant renovation ran an unexpected $8 million — “I have to say that with a gulp,” The building “threw quite a few curveballs at us,” including the discovery of dry rot in the support structures. It all had to be gutted.

Hook, Line & Sinker. From serene lake views to cozy fireplaces, it’s #openseason at Decoy to celebrate the unexpected! We invite you to our peaceful lake side retreat to feast among the flora and fauna on a menu of new American cuisine inspired by the great outdoors and prepared by Executive Chef, David Warner. Grab a stool at our floating lakefront bar for a refreshing drink or sit down for a decadent meal among friends. With two dynamic floors of distinct decor and accompanying menus, you’ll enjoy the cool transition from our casual dockside bar downstairs to the allure of the regal lodge inspired dining atmosphere upstairs. However you choose to experience dockside dining, Decoy welcomes you to join our table.
DECOY – UPSTAIRS DINING
“Our first time experience at Decoy was Impeccable! We arrived early to enjoy the atmosphere of the bar and enjoyed the Madre Mojito.. which is simply divine and the salt and pepper calamari. Then for dinner we were seated lake front to enjoy a NY steak and twice baked potato and butter leaf lettuce salad.. plus enjoyed the waterfront show while we ate.”

“Recently moved to the Lake San Marcos and went here for lunch for the first time today. Staff was very friendly and the views and ambiance are amazing. Perfect spot for casual lunch or fancy dinner upstairs. Very excited to have this in the community.”
