Do you enjoy a taste of adventure alongside a sensory experience to be remembered? Tillie’s at Camp Lucy, outside of Dripping Springs is the perfect option. A beautifully scenic drive from any direction, the aesthetics do not end once the vehicle is parked. The front of the restaurant boasts a glassed fireplace with blanketed seating. Inside, a chic reception area gives way, via giant turquoise wooden doors, to an amazing dining space, punctuated with ornately carved wood, wall niches, and soothing green-toned details.

Tillie’s great-grandson named the restaurant after the clan’s world traveler, Attilia Aldridge Anderson Hancock. Credited for contributions to Austin, such as bringing golf from Scotland and being the city’s first female developer, Tillie’s innovative essence continues through delectable comestibles described as “American Nouveau,” a culinary concept which borrows practices and traditions from cultures across the globe. Officially opened on October 1, 2018, the establishment hasn’t stopped getting rave reviews.
