Lunch

We wanted a traditional small town southern meal and this was delightful. Had the special pimento cheese burger which was delicious. Nice staff and good food. Side note- they know exactly how to cook perfect crisp bacon!

ISY Bell's is well known to the natives of Mooresville and we were introduced to its genuine southern cuisine by a proud Mooresville friend. Home style cooking of southern standards at reasonable prices summarizes ISY Bell's. The pies are outstanding so save some room. Staff if friendly and you are welcomed as family even if you don't know what a... More

My favorite diner in Moooresville!!! Even though it looks like a Home Interiors Party threw up in there, it is neat, clean, and staffed by lovely sweet ladies, very Southern. The food is great!

We've been here twice, well, once for carry out & once for dine-in breakfast. The menu selection is fairly large, and the food is good overall, but we've had a couple of minor misses like the English muffin on our benedicts not being toasted enough or an ingredient missing here & there. Service was also a bit slow. We'll probably... More

Please over look some of the poor reviews here. I think those people just don't know what southern cookin is all about. Look at the dry erase board and order from the daily specials for quick fresh food at a great price. The cobbler is second to none so try to save some room! The sweet potato casserole and fried...

This restaurant sits in the middle of a parking lot looking more like a converted gas station than a place to eat. If some friends hadn't introduced us to this place, we would never have stopped there to eat. One of the better family-style restaurants in the area, and now open seven days a week, Isy Bells has a full... More
