HOT LINKS to All Restaurants that are OPEN. See below for menus, photos, phone numbers, address.

Canyon Lake restaurants are still at 50% of dining space. HOWEVER, in this time of rapid change, I have added Facebook links to all restaurant pages so that you can check for updated hours direct from the food venue. We have lost four restaurants in the past couple of months.

Most restaurants are first-come first serve or takeout!
