Cedar Creek Lake

Because Life is Better at the Lake

One year of Vernon's Lakeside


It's hard to believe that Vernon's Lakeside opened one year ago on June 13, 2019.

We have several friends that own property at Cedar Creek Lake, and we would be invited to visit on many occasions. We fell in love with how peaceful and relaxing it was on every single trip we made to the lake.

Several of our friends kept telling us about a local restaurant that had been shut down for a while, and that we needed to open it back up. We really didn't think we wanted to put the time and effort into opening another restaurant.

Our friends talked us into getting the landlord to allow us to take a look at it. The minute we stepped in and saw the view, and then walked out to see the outdoor bar literally on the water, we were hooked.

We are so thankful that we made the decision to open. This community has been so welcoming. Everybody makes us feel like we have been friends for years. It has been so welcoming that one of the owners has already moved to the lake. The other 2 owners are selling their house in Frisco so they can move down.

There have been many challenges during this first year, but the community has helped us fight through all of them. Please come out for the very special weekend to help us celebrate what we think will be an extroardinary 2nd year as we continue to improve the restaurant, and also become a bigger part of the community.

We will have specials for you to enjoy, and of course we will have the live music that everybody has become accustomed to at Vernon's. On Saturday the 13th (our actual anniversary) we will have bands all day long. We have posted individual events with the details.

Cedar Creek Lake Fishing Report from TPWD (Jul. 1)

EXCELLENT. Water lightly stained; 84 degrees; 0.46 low. Largemouth bass are good working topwater plugs early on lake points, grass lines, brushy cover, shaky heads, tube baits, and wacky rigs later in the day along deeper creek banks, drop-offs, and timber in 12-28’. Hybrids and sand bass are off main lake points and humps with slabs, swimbaits, and rooster tails. Crappie are excellent with jigs and minnows in brush piles and near structure in 12-25’. Catfish are excellent in 12-25’. Live bait and cut bait are working well.
