I always seem to find my self at Dead Fish Grill with friends. It is a beautiful restaurant with a beautiful view but that is where the pleasure stops. The food is nasty, the service is terrible and in general the staff is unfamiliar with how to actually run a restaurant effectively. If I am forced to go I get... More

The best place in Central Tx to watch the sun set with adult beverage in hand! Beautiful lake view at historic location. Salads and steaks are a cut above other local chains!! This is the place to be when the sun is setting!

I like the view of the lake from the restaurant. The food is always good here and the staff is always friendly. it's a very laid back atmosphere. This is one of my favorite Belton Restaurants.

The view over the lake was sort of surreal considering that we're in Central Texas, land of little enchantment. I could sit there all day and drink beer, eat good food, and just enjoy the atmosphere. It is a well run establishment. The staff is obviously well trained and knows how to treat diners properly. The food alone is worth... More

We had dinner there this week with friends. It was chosen randomly because we had never been to Belton before and heard it was a good place. I had Salmon and it was OK. I think it is unfair for me to judge on only one visit but my initial reaction is you would go there for the location and... More

Get a burger and draft beer and enjoy the view. Fish tacos are good too. Don't be scared when they shoot the cannon at sunset!

We went to enjoy a meal with a fabulous view of Belton Lake. The view was the best part of our lunch. The food was average quality and my mom and I both felt that our food was slightly under cooked. We ended up with upset stomachs that afternoon. We were also shocked at the price. I know there were... More

This restaurant has such a pretty setting over looking the lake. However we rarely go there. The food is just okay. The burger is probably the best thing they have. It is a shame, because with the history and view, this could be a spectacular restaurant. The only time I go is when friends pick this place to meet.
