This was truly one of the worst "culinary" experiences of my life and I am old enough to know. I usually tip bad service at bad restaurants and keep to myself but this place is ridiculous. The appetizer was billed as a seafood combination with lump crab, shrimp and flounder. It came out as a lot of bread with a... More

Headed to the Bell Tree after the US Open based on a hotel recommendation. Great place to have a beer and burgers with buddies. Cool downtown atmosphere. Has an outdoor area that was nice and relaxing.

Save your time and your money, ordered a side salad and Brie Burger with sweet potato fries. Salad was literally 8 pieces of bagged lettuce and 1 cherry tomato cut in half with 1 slice of onion, ranch dressing with watery! Sweet potato fries were dripping with oil, dry burger and if that wasn't bad enough I walked to the... More

We ate lunch there today during Springfest, a large outdoor craft event that draws thousands of people. As a result, the restaurant was very busy. Still, we only had to wait about 15 minutes for a table, and we requested to be seated on their outside rear patio area - which was a longer wait because it was a beautiful... More

I went late at night, and I was hungry so I tried the food. Tasted like something that came out of my high school cafeteria. Too bad I graduated high school almost 8 years ago. The desserts are very disappointing as well. Drinks were good.

Bell Tree had a coupon for a free St Patrick day shirt if you came between 4:00 and 6:00 pm on St Patricks day. We arrived at 5:00 pm. We both ordered a draft beer and asked for a medium shirt. We were first told they were out of them and we could have a white New England Patriot shirt... More

Ok, so I live in the area and have gone to the Bell Tree several times over the years. Like another reviewer said, "I'm always surprised when I read a poor review of a place I like." To me the Bell Tree has been a consistent place. The Black Bean Burger is the absolute best non-meat burger I've ever had... More

I am always surprised when I read poor reviews of places I like. I know sometimes there is just an "off night". We have been to the Bell Tree over the years we have had a home in this market. It is always consistent. Buffalo chicken dip is a must have. I like the shrimp and grits, get the half... More
