Double date - 600 E. Riverside Dr. Austin, Tx. 78704
At the time of filming, it was a Joe's Crab Shack. It remained a Joe's Crab Shack until 2020. At the time of my visit, it was a Bishop Cidercade. The patio area is mostly unchanged, other than the railing and the river walk that was built adjacent to it. Downtown Austin, which has grown considerably in size over the years, is visible in the background.
