Sail with Scott: Enjoy Beautiful Views of Lake Ray Hubbard

June 6, 2017 4:00 pm

If you want to explore Lake Ray Hubbard, but you aren't skilled when it comes to maneuvering watercraft, Sail with Scott instead. Scott Self takes guests out onto the beautiful Texan lake aboard the Seawolf. The catamaran was constructed by hand from Spanish cedar, and its glossy decks can hold up to 49 guests.

Scott and the Seawolf depart from the Harbor in Rockwall at various points throughout the day to offer different experiences. Sign up for a sunset cruise to get out on the gently ebbing waves just as the sun begins to dip toward the horizon, or opt for the daytime cruise to take full advantage of the 360-degree views from the Seawolf's deck. You can also check out the lake after hours when you embark on a moonlight cruise, which unfolds just after the sun has set. Cruises start at $30 per person.

Cotton Patch Cafe: Cajun Cuisine at Its Finest

May 25, 2017 11:00 am

Blackened tilapia smothered with Cajun seasonings, plus plump grilled shrimp, all coated with a house-made crawfish cream sauce and piled atop a fluffy bed of seasoned rice. This is the grilled Cajun duo dish at Cotton Patch Cafe, one of the customers' favorite items on the menu.

There are many other down-home Southern dishes to try, however, like the chicken-fried steak. The slab of choice beef comes deep-fried and smothered with Cotton Patch's signature gravy, accompanied by mashed potatoes and green beans. The Super Combo, on the other hand, contains fried catfish filets, hand-breaded shrimp, jalapeño hushpuppies, and crispy fries. Steaks, burgers, and baskets round out the menu at Cotton Patch Cafe, a place you'll definitely want to visit if you're craving classic Southern cooking!

Don’t Miss Happy Hour at Edo Japan

May 18, 2017 3:00 pm

Happy hour is by far the most popular time to visit one of Rockwall's highest-rated sushi restaurants, Edo Japan, when many of the sushi rolls are available at deeply discounted rates. They range from about $3 to $7, but the discounted price doesn't say anything about the caliber of the cuisine.

Like the sushi rolls served all day long, the happy hour creations are something special. Try classics like the tuna roll, the salmon roll, and the California roll at dinnertime. Or you can opt for an assorted mix of different sushi and sashimi dishes selected by the chef. There's also hibachi and teriyaki if you prefer your Japanese fare fully cooked, not to mention an impressive dessert menu. Try a little bit of everything when you visit Edo Japan.
