A hidden gem.

I come to Belton once a month to visit my niece and get my hair cut at her salon. She is an expert cosmetologist who runs The Salon at Chisolm Creek. Each month, we try a different place to eat in Belton. We recently went to the Gin for dinner and were not disappointed. The food was great... read more

The first time we ever ate at, The Gin, we didn't know what to expect when we walked in. It is a very nice place to eat, open for lunch and dinner. It is an old cotton gin building converted into a restraunt. The food is excellent, I have had steak, chicken fried steak, and salmon. Regardless of what you... More

We reserved the private room upstairs with a window out to the creek for the little ones to enjoy spotting the ducks. We had eight adults and three little ones (4, 2 & 2). Drinks, appetizers and dinner was $236 with $46 tip. I would have given them 5 stars but my husbands rib eye steak dinner was terrible. The... More

We took our son here for his 19th Birthday. The service was excellent as was the food. We were seated on the second story and got to look out over the park. We were visiting from out of town. It is a great place for a special occasion.

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.

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 food was about... More

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
