I was going to suggest the Texas Queen but I think it's no longer there. Anyone?

I just got off the phone with a client from Rockwall and he also suggested Zanata's. $$$

Right next door to the Bass Pro Shop (in Garland) are a few nice places that I can't remember to save my life, and you can even dock your boat right at the patio. We met some frinds at the Tex Mex restaurant there earlier this year. People were arriving by boat and coming up to eat. There are places like that on the Rockwall side too. We enjoyed it and we're very picky when it comes to Texmex.

The Texas Queen is permanently docked, I believe. No more tours - the guy who owns the major marinas on the lake bought it a couple of years ago and parked it.

Zanata's is in downtown Rockwall and not really on Lake Ray Hubbard. But I can vouch for the place - probably the best food in town. Not too pricey if you stick to the oak-fired oven pizzas (best I've ever had), and salad (also probably the best I've ever had - get the spinach and gorganzola). Pizzas are their specialty but they are reported to serve the finest bone-in ribeye you can find anywhere. At the Harbor where Scott's catamaran is and where the restaurants on the lake are - try Gloria's for different twist on Mexican/Central American food, or or Dodie's for some decent Cajun dishes.

Try Ava in Rockwall (http://restaurantava.com/). They are fairly new, and the food and drinks are WONDERFUL!!! Their menu is always changing, and they get many of their ingredients from local farms.

The food is somewhat expensive, and deffinately falls into the "special occassion" category for my budget, but the atmosphere is not at all stuffy. There were people there in jeans or sundresses, and nobody looked out of place.
No lake views, but the quality of food and service more than make up for that.

I was also going to recommend Ava's as well as another "adult special occassion" place that is in downtown Rockwall. Can not think of the name but it is 2 words and just a block from the square on Olive. Then head to The Harbor to Agave for drinks, music and dancing. Agave is a hot spot on Saturday night and packed. The shops at The Harbor stay open till 10 and I love Zues and hubby likes the cigar shop.

I think you are referring to Bin 303. Haven't tried it yet but heard it is pretty good.

Yes, that is it. VERY GOOD! Between Bin 303 and Ava's there is some great dining choices in Rockwall. Culpepper's is of course a main staple if one wants a nice steak dinner or the Oar House for fine Italian.
