Ashley Goolsby and her husband, Ross, never dreamed of owning a restaurant. But when the opportunity presented itself in such a unique Lake Travis location, they thought, “Why not?” The key to pleasing their customers was finding the right partner in Jon Silva, general manager of Shack 512, a great team and making sure no customer leaves unhappy. A great view rivaling any in Austin, amazing food and daily sunsets are also key to the restaurant’s success. Shack 512 provides a relaxed dining experience on Lake Travis and is just a short drive from the hustle and bustle of city life, as well as a great place for locals to relax, boat up to and host guests who are looking for an amazing dining experience. Although Goolsby is a consultant by day, she says running a restaurant has been an exciting challenge and a rewarding experience.
