That time of year... moving the kids back in for college! Had breakfast/brunch here previously and they hit it out of the ballpark! Now we were trying dinner with family and friends, and once again Grade A! Our Server "Conner" was on top of it at every move, whether it be attending to our "kids" needs, making sure the adults...

Great view when the weather is nice to sit outside. The food is not consistent. There have been times when we've wanted to stay longer to have a few drinks, but they close too early.

This is a really interesting and fun place to dine. It overlooks Belton Lake and the atmosphere is great. I had the Cajun Fried Frog Legs and Crawfish Queso, both of which were excellent. A friend had the Shrimp Plate and it looked great (he confirmed it really was). Wait staff was excellent and wait time was very good. Nice... More

The view was the first thing that hit me. It was absolutely beautiful. There is a very good selection to choose from the menu. I had a steak which was cooked to perfection, while my partner had chicken which was a little dry. Our server was efficient and polite, though was a little worried about the check as we went... More

Great food at reasonable price with amazing view. Salmon salad was delicious and burgers are huge! We came with a party of 9 including 3 kids and server was attentive to our table. Cheesecake at the end was a great way to wrap up our lunch

We live about 1 hour away so had not been here recently and never for brunch. The weather was perfect so we sat outside. Beautiful view of the lake. Our Bloody Mary was good. Low on spice but we asked for Tabasco to add to it. All was good until our food arrived. Eggs Benedict with crab cake....worst I have... More

After reading the most recent reviews, our expectations were pretty low. We had a Groupon to the restaurant, so were obligated to go. I called ahead to get on the wait list since they don't take reservations. When we arrived they advised a 15 minute wait - not too bad on a Saturday night. We spotted seats at the bar... More

I had the Wedge Salad with the seared tuna, and it was wonderful. The seasoning on the tuna was wonderful and it was cooked perfectly. In fact, I like it so much, I went back the next day to have the same thing but got brave and tried another of their salads but had the tuna on it as well.... More

Ate here twice on my visit. Both times service was slow, food was OK, but the view was fantastic!! The restaurant was not overly busy either time. My fish was dripping in grease.
