I am not really a seafood connoisseur but they do have other food.. I got a bbq hamburger that to me was just average, nothing really different about it. the spouse had shrimp and spinach enchilada to which she said was pretty good. others in the party had fish and chips, Steak, and Mahi mahi. The fish and chips did... 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.

I went with friends for the first time today. It was not crowded at all but it still took several minutes before we were even acknowledged to be seated. As we were being seated, I observed a staff member clean a table off with nothing but his bare hand and nothing else. That's what passes for cleaning a table? Food... More

1) They made my youngest daughter's grilled cheese with the heal/"butt" of the bread. 2) My oldest daughter ordered grilled shrimp. Shrimp takes two seconds to cook so I guess they made it, as in, they grilled it until it had black charcoal flakes hanging off of it and then sat it in the window to get extra rubbery while... More

The best thing about this place is the view, couldn't beat it for watching the sunset. Food was ok, generous portions but nothing spectacular. Not a great place to have a conversation as they blast the music pretty loud. I'm no prude but it would be nice to have a conversation without having to yell over Axl Rose's singing. I... More

We ate here last Sunday for brunch and loved it! It was my birthday and the guy playing sang me a song and I loved it! The food was great. Everyone at my table loved it and we all got such different menu items... All of them great! We live in Waco and the drive was relaxing and easy. We... More

We were visiting Temple area for a weekend and came across this place. It seems pretty unique this area. Good menu choices. You can check out their website. We came for Sunday lunch and ended up using the brunch menu. The brunch cocktail was a nice treat! Enjoyed live guitar music while enjoying the special Egg Benedict (crab cake and... More

The ideal view of Lake Belton is the most notable feature of this versatile restaurant. The menu is adequate and food is good. Service on this particular visit was superior. The young man who waited on us strove to provide a superior dining experience. We love to go here to view the lake and chat. The sports bar area is... More
