We were immediately greeted by a very friendly hostess and seated with a view of the lake. Our waiter was very attentive and was always near if we needed anything. The view is beautiful and our food was very good. We ordered fried mac n...More

All the food I've had here has actually been very good. Which is good to know considering prices are a bit higher paying for the view. Expect a dinner entree to cost $15-$20. But get there early enough or wait to sit outside because the...More

I only gave this place 3 stars because in regards to it being a restaurant, the food (which should be the star of the show) has never really been that impressive. It's pretty average. If not for the location (aka right on the lake with...More

Although the food was good and our server was friendly, the best part of the visit was the amazing view on this gorgeous day! Beautiful location. As a GF eater, there weren't many options to choose from other than salad. That being said, I'd return...More

Iconic Lake Belton place. Sitting on limestone cliffs overlooking the lake, the patio is perfect for beautiful sunsets! Great date venue. Food is good but not always consistent.

The food and service are underwhelming but the great view almost makes up for it. A hour for burgers is amazingly slow when the place is empty. You can get a better burger at McDonalds than what they serve. We've also gotten fish and chicken...More
