Whenever we visit The Belton area a stop at Deadfish grill is a must. Great variety of food and everything we've ever had has been very good. We even got lucky and found Sunday night to be rather slow which is rare at Deadfish.

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
