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.

Found this accidentally while shopping at City Center - Oyster Point. Great homemade sandwiches and soup ! Old diner feel with experienced waitress sans piercings ! Give this a try, you'll like it.

This was one of the first places we stumbled upon when first moving to Newport News, we had a terrific lunch then, and I continue to love their breakfasts and lunches. Sweet Potato Pancakes are my favorite breakfast here, and the Warm Chicken Salad Casserole is a great lunch. No matter what you choose, the staff are all very engaged... More
