Friendly staff, well-priced drinks, great HUGE meals, and a nicely maintained boat. DJ made the night very fun. Enjoyed the sunset on the lake. A must for tourists and even locals (especially since they have booze cruises in air conditioning!)

The staff and owner is very friendly and nice! The food was great. We both had the BBQ Sampler. It's a great way to burn time and to have a scenic view of Lake Hamilton.

Our group of senior adults from Texas had a fun time in the Belle! The food was delicious and plentiful, and Richard, Kelly, and all of their crew did a great job! We will definitely return!
