I give this place 5 stars. The wait staff was great (Michael), and the manager made his presents know by lending a helping hand where needed. And all exceptionally friendly. The view and atmosphere phenomenal. The prices on average....around $10-$20. But portions are good for 2 unless your a heavy weight. It's biker friendly and classy. Not a beer join. My friends and I will be back many times!!! Nice job DFG.
Ps: Wish you sold bandanas.
We come here about once a month. The atmosphere is good, the food is great, the staff is friendly and courteous, but they all look frazzled and harassed. Now I know why. The lady manager "mall walked" around the whole time we were here and harped at the wait staff and the bus boys to work harder and faster. On the balcony, the bus boy was bustin his butt and she was yellin at him to hurry up. Chill out lady. You have a great staff who are working fast and hard. They don't need the whip cracking over their heads. Maybe she needs to sit at the bar and chill.
For starters I don't like seafood and that what I had in mind when I went here. Turned out they have an amazing menu that covers everyone. Our waitress was extremely polite and very good at her job. It was fairly busy and we still got out food in great time. I ended up getting the fried catfish filets and it was awesome. I highly recommend this place.
Ask when they fire the canon. It's usually during sunset. Be ready with your camera. You'll love this place, if you like sea food. Great service. Fantastic ambience. Sit outside for great views.
Dead Fish Grill is a remarkable Restaurant with magnificent views of Lake Belton. They offer a nice variety of food, appetizers and drinks and are quite reasonable in respect to pricing. Their Dinner Menu is much better than their limited lunch menu but the atmosphere, the cleanliness, the service and the quality is quite impressive while open.
Local gem with perfectly cooked and plated culinary triumphs at great prices with a beautiful lake view. This is a must try!!!! Plan on stopping when you drive through... it's well worth the detour! Great staff. Food was exceptional.
This is not a fancy place, but oh what a view! Sitting right on Lake Belton, the restaurant couldn't be situated any better. Everyone at our table had entree salads and we all enjoyed them. And, the service was good.
Our waiter Nicole was very attentive and we had a nice time with our friends. Their onion rings are my favorite. Thin, crisp, sweet and not much batter. Everyone from the hostess to the waiter m gave us full attention. Thanks!!!
Best dinner i had in years. Took my wife there for our anniversary and was worth every penny. First time i had a 100 dollar tab and was happy to pay. Very nice view and nice staff. Will be back soon as we get another babysitter.
Nice place. Great views. Plenty of parking. Not a big seafood fan, but they have just enough other items to keep even a picky eater satisfied. The service once you get past the hostess station is wicked great! I always receive great service.
Wonderful experience overall. I had an early lunch on a Sunday morning and to my surprise found a special menu. It was extremely reasonable for what I received at a nice restaurant (under $20 for meal with side + drink). The crab cakes benedict were amazing. Staff was amazingly nice, I met Mary Ann at the door and Shane waited on me. In addition the live music and spectacular view of the lake made my day. Will go again and would recommend to others.
I had the best mother’s day experience than ever expected. Instead of waiting in line my husband and I decided that we would eat at the bar. After attempting to flag a few of the waiters to try to “grab” someone to take our order… Larry proceeded to stop and ask if he could assist. He told us that the bar area was usually an overflow area (not his normal work station) but would get us menus and asked what we would like to drink. He not only took our food order but provided the BEST customer experience that we have received in a LONG time! Even with the crowd’s coming in to celebrate with family and friends, Larry did an awesome job at both ensuring that we were not forgotten and that we had our food & drinks in a timely manner. Please ensure that Larry is recognized for his outstanding customer service!
Thank you so much!
Awesome Views and Great Food!
My wife and I found the Dead Fish Grill, while looking for a good seafood restaurant on the interstate near Belton! We lucked out using our Garvin Map finder! We headed off to Lake Belton and found a beautiful place located by the Lake Damn! Not only were the view great, but the food was excellent! The fish was cooked just perfect with a great seasoning. Also had the shrimp which my wife couldn't get enough of!. This was a very nice place with a great atmosphere. If we ever in the area again I would love to go here again!
THIS PLACE IS GREAT! Amazing burgers, fish, drinks, and a spectacular view of Belton lake! The waiters and waitresses are out going and friendly. Dead Fish Grill is an all around fabulous restaurant!
We have eaten at Dead Fish Grill on four occasions. Each visit is most enjoyable. I live 40 miles distant, so the food, and ambiance must be inviting to us. D.F.G.`s lake view is superior to the Oasis on Lake Travis, since Lake Travis is rapidly declining in water levels. The staff and food are quality, and congenial folks abound. I could easily drive to Austin, (22 miles) from home, but for a special atmosphere of dining, no where in Atown has the view or the relaxed atmosphere. Try the fish tacos.
Great spot with awesome views of the lake. Good food, reasonable prices.
Awesome food from drinks, appetizers to the meal! Great offering of desserts but we were to full to enjoy. Excellent service, not only by our waiter but everyone that worked there. They kept our drinks fill, bussed our table as soon as we finished, and the food came out hot and fast! Really cool atmosphere with the option to dine outside, under the covered patio or inside. We will definitely visit again.
My wife and I went here for our 8th anniversary. It has a beautiful view and a very friendly and helpful wait staff. I had a fried calamari app and blackend catfish tacos for dinner and both were great. The desserts are great too. We will be coming back here soon.
Great service and amazing view! Lovely! !! I will definitely be coming back soon!
We have been to Dead Fish Grill several times and each time the food and service is amazing. We love to go right about sundown and sit outside so that we can see and hear the cannon go off. The staff and patrons cheered on the little boy, about 10, who set off the cannon...everyone gets involved. Only thing I'd request is more heaters but that seems like a petty request since we could have asked to be seated inside.
Keep up the great and we'll see you next time.
We spent the evening here on the 5th January it was before we flew back to England, Excellent food excellent staff, i would highly recommend smile emoticon and thanks for letting my girls fire the cannon i will email the the photo.
We ate our last meal of 2015 here and the staff and food was amazing. Thank you for an amazing end to 2015
Way to earn back my business! Thank you for accommodating our baby shower tonight. The food and service was amazing! Maurice-you delivered in your promise. Our server Dejai was fantastic!! Thank you again!!
