If this is just about food and views I would rate this a five, but attitude, slovenliness, also count. From the woman at the front who acted as though this was her first day to the manager who explained everything went wrong because they were busy.

We had a good lunch and a great view of lake Belton. I have catfish and the wife had a salad. They have a good bar as well.

This place over looks Lake Belton and you can watch the sunset over the lake. They shoot off a cannon at sunset which is a bit anticlimatic. My family ate there twice this month and both times the food was just average. Crabcakes are blah and the stuffed items lack the "stuff". Smothered Grouper with Etouffee came without the Etouffee....

What a breathtaking view and layout. Bands outside on the weekends. Indoor fireplace, and the cannon always goes off at sunset. The bar is good. Great atmosphere inside and outside. The food is okay. I wouldn't recommend anything with the small shrimp (popcorn shrimp, shrimp and spinach enchiladas). Tastes fine, but it has been known to make several people in... More

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.
