You would think Bell's would spend some effort in getting these reviews properly organized. The main brewery offers no food, no store - it's a tour of a brewery. Education, nice views of some of the brewery, and samples. But it's NOT the Eccentric Cafe' restaurant...

I'm not a huge fan of Bell's beer, but I was told to visit their location and see what it's all about. The merch shop wasn't only Bell's merch, but also coupled with a homebrewing store which I though was really cool. The Beir Garten was extremely cool and a nice place to relax an enjoy the beer. I would... More

I came here with a group of friends for my bachelor party. No, it was nothing like that. Rather it was pretty low key and this place was everything I wanted and more. After we got our first round we were seated at a table outside. On a summer evening, it was absolutely perfect. We had some gourmet apps that... More

I'm new to the area and stopped at Bell's. The place is a gem! I'm looking forward to going to a yoga event there as well as a trivia night. Definitely a great place to check out!

When you walk into the front door you see a sign posted that all pets need to be placed and kept in carriers. Service dogs the exception. First off I have four dogs so by all means love dogs. My husband and I decided we wanted something to eat prior to our flight so we went to Bells. Our waitress... More

First of all, this listing is for Bell's Brewery tour which is on Krum Ave. in Galesburg. Many people have mistakenly left reviews they meant for Bell's Eccentric Cafe in Kalamazoo (http://www.tripadvisor.com/Restaurant_Review-g42354-d1541268-Reviews-Bell_s_Eccentric_Cafe-Kalamazoo_Kalamazoo_County_Michigan.html). This is the brewery tour, not a restaurant. That all being said, we enjoyed the brewery tour. Very impressive building and facilities. The tour guide was knowledgeable and... More

I have been to Bells several times when the place was so busy you had to wait 30 min to get a beer!? Beware if you are a female and sit at the bar do not expect to get served more than one beer!! This evening I was cut off after one beer! I was respectful yet offended and embarrassed... More

This is a very nice place with good food. The atmosphere was definetely cool. If you go you need to try one of their "flights". I would definitely go back again.

If you love Michigan microbrews or microbrews in general, Bell's Brewery is a must visit. The building is extremely unique. The beer is top notch and the food is great. Stop by the store too.
