The service was great ! The view of the lake and dam was good and unique. The coffee was stale and bitter. The food was way below "average" and they claim to have a "chef." The grilled shrimp were extremely oversalted to the point they could not be identified as shrimp. The fried catfish were saturated in oil and the... More

The Dead Fish Grill is tucked away and not much to look at from the parking lot. However, the food and service are outstanding. Sit by the windows and enjoy the lake view. If you want brunch try the DFG Breakfast Plate. You won't leave hungry. I enjoyed the florentine omelet. The pancakes with blueberries was also delicious. Want a... More

This restaurant has a vast menu with consistent quality. I asked for some changes to the salmon spinach salad (blacken the salmon, add red onions, dressing on the side) and all of those requests were granted and the salmon was absolutely wonderful. The other people in my party loved their food as well. One had a Po Boy Sandwich and... More

The food was very good. Our service was excellent however putting Oysters on the Half shell @ market value was a bit pricey. $21 for a half dozen and they were small. That's not nice.

We ate dinner with a few friends and ordered everything from salmon to catfish to chicken fried steak. Salmon was pronounced good. Catfish portions were obscenely huge but very tasty, and chicken fried steak was over-cooked and dry. When we finally got gravy for the steak it was not the white gravy mentioned on the menu but was brown and... More

Well! what a great day it was on Lake Belton after SUP'n most of the day with some great friends. We decided to go relax at Dead Fish Grill to have a well needed cocktail and some great food. I had the fried shrimp dinner that was amazing, I'm very picky when it comes to seafood since I grew up... More

I went to dead fish to have a late lunch and to get a po-bo sandwich and enjoy the view. The bartender told me that they were out po-boys which is amazing for a seafood restaurant.I ordered a beer and it was warm and the bartender gave more attention to the waitstaff Than to me.
