Great Service. Great Food. Nice atmosphere. A gem in Mechanicsville. The food is excellent and it's one of my wife's favorite places to eat locally.

Good salad, really fresh crispy varied greens and a particularly good rice wine vinegar dressing. Hot garlicky rolls. Entrees were also well prepared and tasty. We even enjoyed their Sirius radio. My only suggestion is that they find a tzatziki recipe that has discernible cucumber.

Atmosphere was decent, food was decent, but the customer service was terrible! I was drawn to the restaurant by a two for one entrée special that offered by the restaurant. The offer did not specify lunch or dinner. Upon being presented with the bill, I gave them the two-for-one dining offer. They refused to honor it stating that it was... More

Bell Cafe gets my vote for best restaurant in Mechanicsville. The food is VERY good. They have a great variety of choices - from filet mignon and lobster bisque (so yummy) to salads and sandwiches. The decor is somewhat minimal, but attractive. I am thankful that we have a local restaurant that cares about how their food tastes. Service is... More

Best food in the entire Hanover area in my opinion with lots of choices , lots of freshness, and the lobster bisque is wonderful. The ambiance is sorely lacking.

As soon as we stepped inside for a late lunch, it felt great from the décor to the music piped in. We had sandwiches that totally caught us off guard. As a geezer, I've only been surprised like this once every decade. Not only were the meals and the appetizer delicious, the portions were like I make at home (and... More

This place used to be our little secret, but no more. They are one of the few places near us that serve craft beer so we visit as often as we can. Brunch is phenominal. and Danny and Tiffany know how to do dinner. Lots of options, from sandwiches to entrees. Try the soup! And the cocktails are awesome. We... More

I have lunch here with friends frequently. The food is always good and there is a great selection. They usually have a choice of fresh quiches. I have never had dinner here but highly recommend the lunch menu.

It was sister’s day out so we decided to try Bell Café which is nestled in the Bell Creek Shopping Center. It is small in area, but had an open and airy atmosphere. It touts a broad menu, including weekly specials, brunch, appetizers, salads, light fare, sandwiches, and entrees. We were greeted warmly and seated immediately. We dined on a... More
