Hyatt Regency Lost Pines Resort and Spa’s signature restaurant is Stories, an upscale Texas steak house ensconced in a gorgeous rustic setting. The farm-to-table menu rotates seasonally under the direction of executive chef Michael Barber and chef de cuisine Tyler Brown. No matter when you visit, our dishes always feature local and seasonal ingredients, as well as herbs and vegetables picked fresh from our own garden. Enjoy prime cuts of meat, fresh seafood, gourmet salads, and more.

On your way into the steak house, you’ll pass through Kesselus Hall, named after local author and historian Ken Kesselus. The foyer’s floor-to-ceiling bookshelves are home to the works of dozens of Texas authors. It’s where Stories gets its name.

Our family celebrated Christmas Dinner at Stories and it was a most memorable and special occasion. Our party included six children under the age of 8 years old; and the entire Restaurant Staff was professional, patient, and helpful. All of which ensured an atmosphere of relaxation even in a formal setting. We appreciated that, as the children were aware of the special significance of the dining experience and Christmas Celebration. Thank you. Jack and Donna Wheatley

We were disappointed that it was not at Stories Restaurant but in the ballroom. The food was cold, the green beans were not cooked and the clams and oysters did not taste fresh.

We had dinner on the balcony. We ordered a filet and a ribeye. The steaks were a perfect medium rare with a delicious flavor. We also were given an amuse bouche,a pumpkin soup. Unexpected and very good. My only wish is that they would dim the lights a bit on the balcony. The inside was dimly lit and romantic but the balcony was fully lit up. The ambiance was very different.

We went to the Stories restaurant for our 1st wedding anniversary and it was fantastic! The food was great and they asked if we were celebrating anything and when they brought our dessert they wote "Happy 1st Anniversary" on it! Great service, great food, fantastic experience!

Normally not a fan of steak restaurants but this one was spectacular. Had lobster cakes and beef cheek appetizer and both were perfect. My wife had the pan seared escolar and I had the aged rib eye with Oscar add on and it was Perfect! Cooked exactly as asked and one of the best steaks I have ever had. I highly recommend it. Only issues was that food was pricey.

My wife and I eat at Stories a couple of times of the year and we are always impressed with the food and service. Customer service is obviously a high priority for them.

Came in to celebrate my boyfriend's birthday. Our server April was very pleasant and engaging. Chef came out to our table and delighted us with an appetizer which was very delicious . We had a great dinner and it made the night very special. Thank you for the amazing service.

This place has improved. I always ask for a low salt meal. That way I can control the saltiness since this place has a reputation in the past of heavily salting food.

Great food option near our home.

Quite nice. Ate here twice in the weekend. Didn’t know that I like foie gras.

We truly enjoyed our meal. The crap cakes, while small, are packed with crap and simply delicious! Steak was cooked to perfection and the risotto, was creamy and full of flavor. The wait staff was attentive no April went above and beyond to make our meal pleasant.

Excellent food and customer service! The people here really went above and beyond to make our dinner a great experience and the food was amazing. We'll be coming back soon.

Creative dishes including steaks, pasta, seafood and salads. Excellent service and good portions make Stories a great place to dine.

Attention to detail is lacking. I asked for my salmon well done and it came at a medium temperature. Also asked for broccoli instead of asparagus but got asparagus anyway.
Also asked for blue l cheese olives in my martini, received regular olives.
Waitress didn't come back to see if all was ok.
When I did mention the issues she apologized but offered no remuneration.
As a restaurant employee for over 15 years, this is not a great way to create raving fans.
The food was good but not memorable. No need to go back unless I were staying on property again.

Our waitress was a delight and we enjoyed discussing good food and restaurants w her. The food was wonderful. Especially enjoyed the filet and lamb. Great manhatten cocktail. Nice and quiet outside on deck overlooking the resort. Summertime there are a lot of kiddos inside the restaurants at the resort and that can be louder than normal if you are looking for a quiet dinner for two.

Celebrating our 35th wedding anniversary. First time to dine at this restaurant. I had the rack of lamb and my bride had the wild game antelope. We had the Creamy Brie Polenta to start. A bottle of wine. and finished with Carrot Cheesecake "Pineapple Compote, Carrot Gelee".
Our waiter " Brad" was very good and explained the menu , picked out a wine for us, was very attentive to us during our dinner. The price was expected for a fine dinning establishment. The food was excellent ! Wish I could afford to dine here frequently , maybe some day. We will be back on special occasions.
