Must Do List for Getting to Know Granbury

Where to Stay

One of the best ways to get a feel for a town is to spend a night or two here. Let's start with some great hotels to stay at. While you won't necessarily need a hotel when you live here, you will want your visit to be a great one. And someday when you do live here you may have friends and family come for a visit and then you will have a great place for them to stay (if you don't have room in your home). 

Inn on Lake Granbury

This is one of the most iconic and popular places to stay in Granbury. It is right on the shores of the lake. This bed and breakfast is beautiful and offers great accommodations with sweeping views of the lake. It is only two blocks from the historic downtown square. 

Hotel Lucy

A unique boutique hotel with stunning architecture allows for amazing photos that make all your social media friends jealous. Every room has a different style theme and each is so gorgeous. The pool is a great place to relax in the middle or at the end of a day of roaming around Granbury with loungers in the pool. 

Casa Farina

If you prefer to be right in the center of it all, check out Casa Farina. It is located in the town square over the top of Farina's Italian Restaurant. You can't get any closer to the town center hub than this.

What to Eat


So we can't mention Casa Farina and not recommend checking out the restaurant on the ground floor. Located in Granbury town square this local staple will transport you to Italy. The most popular dish is the spaghetti pizza. 

Eighteen Ninety

Another great spot in the town square. If you are looking for a great dinner with an upscale atmosphere but still offering southern charm this is it. This steakhouse is housed in historic opulence. The building has an impressive historic limestone facade and the decor and styling contrast with a sleek modern touch. If you love your meal take a trip to their market next door and purchase ingredients to make it at home. 


Anise is a restaurant with all the charm of Granbury. It is housed in a charming old home on the shores of the lake. This elegant restaurant serves dishes inspired by favorite locations around the world. The menu is seasonal and the presentation is phenomenal. It will become your favorite spot for a romantic date night or just a special time to treat yourself. 

Babe's Chicken

For some truly southern comfort food in a family-friendly setting head to Babe's. Find the best fried chicken, all of the amazing sides you love, and expect to eat with this southern staple, and amazing biscuits. Don't skip dessert here, the homemade pies are worth coming in for on their own.

The largest draw to Granbury is the lake. The lake is at the center of downtown. It was formed by damming a portion of the Brazos River. This sizeable beautiful lake is popular for boating, fishing, tubing, skiing, jet skiing, swimming, paddle boarding, kayaking, and more. There are public access points all around the lake, some include campgrounds. The most popular and best for a first visit is probably City Beach Park with a sandy shoreline and a tiki hut that offers equipment rentals.
