Even though there are many fired options, there are also many grilled and sautéed items. It was a little tough for my vegan daughter in law to find what to eat, but she got some French fries, a salad and some black beans - - complete meal! I was happy because this restaurant, under several different names, was originated by... More

Visited Dead Fish Grill for Mother's Day. We waited about an hour, which was to be expected. However, once we were seated we realized there were a lot of empty tables. Maybe they didn't have the staff needed, but seemed odd. I'm not a seafood person, but chose this place for the view-which did not disappoint. I ordered my burger... More

We went for an early dinner. We asked to be seated outside, The view was beautiful. We ordered dinner. I ordered the Cajun Chicken & my friend ordered the rib eye steak. My chicken was very thin and dry. The menu said shrimp & crawfish in the sauce. Well they were separate on the plate, dry and cold. My friend's... More

This restaurant is located in a beautiful place right by the dam at Belton lake. Over the years they have been improving their accommodations and I think they have found the perfect balance of allowing customers to enjoy the view while still keeping a comfortable air conditioning area for many of the tables. You also have the choice to go... More

Dead Fish is located on Belton Lake overlooking the water and dam. The view is stunning and the extensive patio seating helps everyone be close to a water view. The food is average with a couple exceptions, and the service ranges from great to poor. The management is helpful in organizing special events but the food to go is extremely... More

I would give it a 3.5. The view is nice and the live music is great, but the food is just average and a little pricey for the quality and serving size..

Highly suggested by friends to visit here. Loved it! We got seafood gumbo and fried catfish platter w/ hushpuppies, ff, slaw, veggies. Amazingly good and very cheap!! Three of us ate and had sweet tea for only $25 with tip!!! Beautiful view of Lake Belton and nice outside sitting.

My husband and I visited Dead Fish Grill in Belton, Tx for the first time this evening. I ordered blackened shrimp tacos. They were tender and tasty!

The website and online menu were inviting, and I really expected a much better dining experience. However, I should have known that fine dining was not on the menu, when I saw the generous parking spaces adjacent to the front door, all reserved for motorcycles. The very loud whangy-dangy music was another giveaway that, despite the high prices, this place... More

We're sorry you didn't like our live music. We do not have live music every night, so a quieter evening could be on the menu. Thank you for your feedback, and you are welcome to give us another chance regardless of your attire. More
