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

We have been here a few times and the food has always been good. It's a great spot for lunch and we like the half price wine night on Saturdays. Quaint feel.

One of my favorite lunch spots in town! Small place, but the food is consistently great (especially the crab cake sandwich) and the staff is very friendly and efficient. Be sure to save room for dessert. The blueberry bread pudding in particular is worth a trip across town.

I live close by and have visited on more than one occasion! Our first visits there were worth return trips. Lately, service has been less than accommodating and the availability of menu items are hit and miss! I would much rather spend time locally than venturing out, but we'll not be returning!
