First time here and was happy just to find something not bland like most things are in Killeen. Great location and view of the lake. Place is clean and bright! I had the fried squid and fish tacos which were great. Service of ok and no issues. Waiter made extra effort to be helpful with local activities. Sad I did... More

The food at Dead Fish is still terrible, the service is still slow, and it's still not all that clean. Please do gain some consistency. It's been inconsistent since you opened and it still is.

My wife and I were out on an afternoon ride on a warm sunny Sunday this labor day. We weren't planning on stopping but we are both glad we did. The view overlooking the lake was great, very relaxing. We ordered the blackened shrimp dinner and the shrimp was fantastic. The service was great as well. We would have stayed... More

The view is awesome, nobody can really argue that. The issue I had is I ordered the shrimp and catfish plate, for $15. Was deceptively up-charged for replacing the cole slaw with an actual side (was later told that cole slaw counted as a garnish, not a side. It's understandable, but I would have preferred to have been informed of... More

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
