This place has amazing views but not such amazing food. Decent service. This place is great for drinks, shrimp appetizer and pictures of the lake. Prices are steep , $18.00 for a streak salad, this is Belton not Austin!!!

Excellent place to go for Sunday brunch! Menu is limited for lunch and dinner, but the view is to die for.

The food and service were good, nothing exceptional. However, the view is beautiful and very calming. My husband and I enjoyed it and will likely return.

Great food and atmosphere, good service at reasonable prices. The only negative would be that the floor along the windows that overlook the lake were very wet, ruined my wife's purse along with some documents that were in the bottom of her purse.

This restaurant has a beautiful view of Lake Belton, large enclosed and outdoor patios, and a good-sized bar. Those are its best features. The food and service are average at best and our wait for our food was extraordinarily long. There are a paucity of restaurants near by, so a good view and average food are what you settle for.

We went on a Thursday evening with another couple and were told it would be a half hour wait for an "outside" table. While seated at the bar, we noticed several tables in a glass enclosed porch just off the bar. We checked back with the receptionist and were told these were considered "inside" tables. We changed out request and... More

Beautiful views, live music, good food - These are some of the reasons I love to eat here. It has a very welcoming, local feel. Everyone is very friendly. Many choices for seating. Broad menu with lots of good choices; not just seafood. Plenty for the kids too.
