You can't beat the view

Dead Fish is a very neat restaurant on Lake Belton that serves Cajun/French/Italian/American foods. They are on the Southeast corner of the lake perched precariously over the lake on a cliff by the dam. I am not sure you can get a better view of anything in Central Texas. The food is okay, but... read more

We enjoyed a buffet styled meal for my son's rehearsal dinner. The food was savory and taste bud pleasing! Our quaint room had such an amazing lake view. The staff was friendly and helpful. We returned again for breakfast the morning after the wedding. WOW! I was flabbergasted at the extensive breakfast menu. We as a group tried different dishes... More

We love stopping by here, there is nothing more relaxing than enjoying a meal while watching the activity on Lake Belton. The food, service, and atmosphere is great. If your around at Sunset, you can experience them firing a canon. You can choose to sit inside, or outside. The sunsets are awesome.

We live close to the Dead Fish Grill and enjoy the view of Lake Belton while we eat. Most times we go for lunch where the shrimp are always excellent.

We really enjoyed our view, over looking the lake. The service was great and we really enjoyed our food also. It is a little hard to find if you're not from the area, but I recommend trying to find find it.

Came from out of town to meet friends, who came with their 2 granddaughters (9 and 5) for early dinner. The restaurant has an older but comfortable feel about it. And the view of Lake Belton is great. The dining room was not very crowded, as it was only about 3 PM. We ordered 2 different seafood dishes (Salmon and... More

Went with a party of 12 for a birthday dinner. We had reservation so we were seated right away in a room that looked like it was a banquet room filled with round tables. He pulled 2 tables together and we all sat down. Our young waiter said he was only waiting on us so service would be great. He... More

This is my first and last visit to this restaurant. Steep prices for inferior and small portions of food. Had to ask the waitress to bring rolls to our table. Chicken fried steak was very thin and grisly. Worst chicken fried steak I have ever had.The small portion of mashed potatoes were watery. The green vegetable you got with the... More
