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

Cute restaurant with a pub type atmosphere. Staff was very friendly, but the food was a disappointment. My husband and I were delighted to see bison burgers offered on the menu. We both ordered them medium rare and they came out well done. My french fires were not completely cooked and my husband's onion rings were over cooked. When we... More
