The Ski Shores Cafe is reopening to the public Saturday after almost a year-long hiatus, an employee confirmed with Austonia.

Ski Shores reopened for the first time for a private event Thursday in preparation for the official reopening and has been teasing a return “very soon” on social media.

Local hospitality group McGuire Moorman Lambert acquired the legacy brand in November 2021, pledging to freshen up the 2905 Pearce Road location while preserving the character and menu.

Guests at the opening enjoyed food, drinks and lakeside fun. (Laura Figi/Austonia)

A little history: Ski Shores opened on Lake Austin in 1954 and expanded to Zilker Park in February 2020, which MML converted into a second Lou’s location earlier this year.

The restaurant has been quiet on the details but there are some new additions to the restaurant, such as a pickleball court.
