Great wait staff and very popular place with a wonderfully varied menu, but overpriced by a lot. Additionally policy is for wait staff to give you bill merely noting what you ate. When you get to the register they take that and tell you how much you owe. You do not receive a detailed receipt, unless you ask for one... More

The lunch bell never disappoints. Ask any of the many local who will be there. The pies are delicious, the sandwiches remind you of sandwiches from home, only better.

We recently went to the Lunch Bell which we've tried before. This time I wanted something on the light side so I ordered the quiche. The quiche was OK and the portion small. It came with a bit of fruit and salad and a tiny muffin. The muffin was really good. Though I'm not a big eater, I left feeling... More

I've eaten at the Lunch Bell for at least 27 years. The food has that homemade taste because it is...I enjoy the navy bean soup and chicken salad. But, the specials of the day are amazing. The barbeque plate with macaroni salad is another that I enjoy. I have to mention their desserts. The banana pudding is delicious, as well... More

Janet A real family meal! This has to be the best restaurant I've ever been to for both food and service. The lobster salad for lunch is my favorite. I especially like the Thanksgiving buffet. Everyone who works there makes you feel like family. I have their cookbook but it's not the same as having Betty and the others fix... More

While staying at the nearby Marriot City Center I ventured around the lake to this restaurant for breakfast. It was Saturday and they had a buffet set up which looked very good. I felt like trying their waffle though so ordered a combo of waffle, 2 eggs and choice sausage, bacon, ham or cornbeef hash. The breakfast was wonderful everything... More

My husband and I enjoy lunches here but we like the breakfasts even better. The homemade soups are a very welcome treat on a cold day. The service is very good and the staff is very welcoming.
