“Great atmosphere- but avoid the fried catfish”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

Overall excellent service, a good selection and very reasonable prices. The calamari is wonderful but their fried catfish is doughy and chewy, not crispy. Not sure where the chef found that recipe but stay away from it. Very nice ahi and catfish tacos, salads and pasta dishes. Beautiful deck overlooking Lake Belton with very good bar. Special group areas perfect for large work or family groups. Live music many nights.

Reviewed 22 May 2014

The scenery is breath-taking as you look out over Lake Belton. The entre choices are quite diverse, and the prices are very reasonable. The food is tasty and filling.

“Voted Most Improved!”
Reviewed 12 May 2014

Awesome view! One of a kind on Lake Belton. Over the last 4 months there has been a HUGE improvement in everything at DF.

My favorite improvement is the lunch & bar menu. Love the cucumber wrap (substitute chicken for shrimp). The staff is wonderful; they seem just like family... in a good way.
