A wonderful outdoor patio

This place has a great location. Right next to Nolan Creek, the view is wonderful. We came for dinner so we would be there after dark when the lights came on. We were not disappointed. To sit on the patio with a drink, looking out towards the creek was so relaxing. Atmosphere is 5 star while the... read more

For our weekly "date night", it was my turn to pick. We haven't been to The Gin in several months so I thought it would be a good place to go. As usual, the staff was excellent and the food couldn't have been better. It was nice sitting along Nolan Creek and watching kids playing in the water.

The Gin in Belton is a short drive from Temple, maybe 15 minutes. We sat on the patio over looking the local river. The area is very nice and well light so not security issues. As we ate dinner we watched the kids float, and play in the river. The city has done a excellent job of renovating the river... More

The Gin always provides a decent meal. Our favorite seating is on the large outside dining porch. The food is above average and the waitstaff is always friendly.

My husband and I decided to take a break from walking along the creek. We stumbled upon The Gin. Honestly We did not know this place was even here. I'm guessing we came in the back way and Sat in the area with the picnic tables. Great idea and love the umbrellas. Just wished they were a little higher to... More

I have been to the Gin many times and was excited to hear that they started serving brunch. My family and I went on a Saturday morning and it was wonderful. Camia was our server. She provided excellent service. You could really tell she knew her stuff because she was able to answer all my questions about the brunch menu.... More

The seating was a little tight but the sweet and respectful staff made up for it! And let's not forget the food!!! Airline chicken was great! Girlfriend had the chicken fried steak and said it was delicious! She's rarely a member of the clean plate club but she finished it off along with the dirty rice and mashed taters! Excellent...

Took my children out for dinner on monday while my husband had to work late. We sat on the patio and enjoyed every minute of it. The food was awesome and as was the service, I think her name was Amber. Even got a burger to go for my husband (which he loved). We cant wait to return with the... More

I have been multiple times an different times of the day. No matter when we get the best outgoing servers. I have had the steak several times which is always great. I brought my wife this time and we met with a partner for brunch because we heard they were going to attempt. I must say to The Gin you... More
