Just wanted to say, what a great experience I had there . The food, Chicken and waffles, to the Key lime pie is so scrumptious . The staff is very Friendly and very helpful with selections. Would like to try date night soon.

You will love this restaurant! And if you like a Cobb salad after you have had theirs you will always be disappointed if you ever get one some where else. In fact, if they had a definition of Cobb salad in the dictionary, there should be a picture of the Bell Cafe Cobb salad. There is no place that can... More

We got off the interstate beltway expecting to eat lunch at a chain restaurant, but were delightfully treated to a real meal in almost the same amount of time. We ate outside at the sidewalk dining area, and the staff was accommodating in bringing out a real chair for me to sit in. (Slant-back outdoor chairs don't work for me.)... More

A wonderful find! We were planning our return trip while eating lunch. Stopped here due to TA review and once again TA was spot on. Hubs had open face meatloaf sandwich which was on a homemade savory Rosemary biscuit (to die for) with REAL mash potatoes and a side salad. I had the special - soft shell crab sandwich with... More

It's difficult to put in words the hard work Danny & Tiffany have put into their cafe. We've enjoyed all the food they prepare and definitely like their date night on Thursdays. How can you miss with a meal that includes a bottle of wine. $40 for two. Can't beat that.

Nothing fancy, but the food is excellent and priced well. I had the crab cakes and a salad. Excellent. My companions had excellent food, as well.

Love coming here for date night. Wonderful bargain. Bottle of wine, two starters, two entres, and a shared desert .Food is really good & wait staff friendly. All of that for $40.00. Well worth the money.'

Bell Cafe has a great crab cake dinner and offers a cheap date night including wine, a salad, two entrees and a shared desert for one low price that most places charge for the wine alone. Their specials change a lot but you can always count on a good meal at a reasonable rice.

There aren't too many place I "dine out" in Mechanicsville. But i really enjoy this one. brunch,lunch, drinks...you name it. I have NEVER encountered a rude waiter...ever. It's a fun place with charm. I have eaten here countless times and I can't recall ever being so let down that it swayed me to have negative opinions. We have a million... More

If your looking for a night out , look no further Bell Cafe has the best Appetizers and dinner entrees. Food and atmosphere is the best around the Ville. Reminds you of a restaurant in the fan district. Look in Facebook during the week for fantastic lunch specials. The owners are awesome.. Very Friendly and would do anything for you.... More
