Sports Lounge

Bob's Steak & Chop House

Bob’s Steak & Chop House is a traditional American Prime Steakhouse that has been recognized for its lively atmosphere, big drinks, fine wines and large cuts of the finest prime steaks, chops, and seafood. While each Bob’s location has its own unique personality, all uphold the same exceptional dining and service standards instilled since the original Bob’s opening in Dallas, Texas in 1993. The second location in Austin, Bob’s at Omni Barton Creek will offer an impressive outdoor patio and will be open Monday through Saturday for dinner only.


Featuring a 180-degree panoramic view of the property visible from either inside or from the spacious wrap around outdoor deck, the seafood restaurant will offer fresh fish and grass fed meats and feature a welcoming bar. The dining space has a casual, open design and a mixture of seating and tables in loose, effortless style, with subtle tonal accents in the furniture.

Velvet Joe's Coffee Market

Guests can get a start on their day out on the porch sipping a beverage from the new coffee market.  Located near the resort lobby, this boutique coffee shop will serve specialty coffee blends, espresso, cappuccino and latte beverages as well as freshly baked pastries, muffins and cereals. It will also showcase locally made products including food, housewares and accessories. 


The new sports lounge will offer a comfortable hideaway perfect for golfers looking to catch a game indoors or grab a drink on the outdoor deck while taking in the scenic event lawns nearby. The design takes cues from Omni Barton Creek's legendary course architects - Fazio, Palmer, Crenshaw and Coore - and mimics that of an architect's studio. 


An indoor and outdoor restaurant leading out to the resort pool scape, the pool grill will serve small bites, lunch and dinner inspired by traditional Latin flavors and culinary techniques. Accents of crisply patterned concrete tiles add a splash of color and personality, while brightly colored artwork, tonal ceramic lighting, and a collection of vibrant potted plants give the restaurant a truly authentic feel. 

Canyons Grill

Featured inside the new Canyons Clubhouse adjacent to the stunning Fazio Canyons golf course will be the Canyons Grill. Open seven days a week for lunch and dinner, Canyons Grill will serve traditional clubhouse fare in an intimate clubhouse setting.

Texas Spice

This restaurant captures the true flavor of Texas for a casual breakfast dining experience. Guests can begin their day with our savory Art of Breakfast Buffet. 

Jim Bob's

A casual, yet sophisticated lounge celebrating the history of Barton Creek, Jim Bob’s will be the perfect gathering spot for light bites or custom cocktails just off of the resort lobby.

Barton Creek Lobby Lounge Renovation

Emulating the living room of a Hill Country home, the new Omni Barton Creek lobby will welcome guests with breathtaking views through the expansion of new floor-to-ceiling windows complete with a wrap-around porch. A new fireplace provides a beautiful access point for small gatherings. While taking in the mesmerizing landscape, guests and locals alike will have the opportunity to grab a refreshing cocktail or delectable light fare at the resort's sophisticated lobby bar.

Canyons Clubhouse

Situated adjacent to the award-winning Fazio Canyons golf course, the new clubhouse is reminiscent of a modern Hill Country home with a wrap-around patio overlooking the golf course and anchored by a large outdoor fireplace for a comfortable place to relax, eat and drink after a round of golf.

Golf Course Renovations

The resort has kicked off a multi-year golf course improvement campaign that has already begun with Fazio Foothills (completed in June 2018) and will continue with Coore Crenshaw Cliffside (beginning June 2018) and then Fazio Canyons in 2019. The primary focus of the work includes substantial updates designed to enhance course conditions, playability and overall enjoyment.

The Fazio Foothills renovation project includes newly designed and expanded tee boxes, newly designed bunkers, replacement of the irrigation system, as well as significant improvements to course drainage and native areas. Complementing the extensive golf course enhancements, a new golf pro shop will be added, offering the latest apparel and golf equipment.

Tennis Complex

Omni Barton Creek will replace its current tennis facility with a championship-caliber tennis center located adjacent to Barton Creek Country Club. Featuring 10 well-lit courts, top notch instructors and a pro shop offering tennis attire and equipment, the new tennis complex will host competitive matches and beginner classes alike.
