A low-key, quasi sports bar restaurant that was great for dinner. The buffalo chicken appetizer with pita chips was really good. Placing a napkin underneath the homemade onion rings would have made them more appealing, but they tasted great. The potato salad was so-so and the tater tots were cold. Fortunately the pulled-pork and sliced brisket sandwiches were really, really... More

Stopped by here after work back in February. Got the rib basket and bleu bites, which were good. Still one of my go-to places on a Wed. night.

Went for Sunday Brunch. Ate outside on the terrace. Nice day . View overlooks parking lot. Food was very good. Smokehouse Benny (Eggs Benedict) and a slab of ribs. Excellent sauces, especially the house sauce. Service was average.

I go often to this restaurant for lunch. It is one of the few restaurants that serve burnt edges and they are good, The brisket is good and the hamburgers are also good. They have plenty of selections of wine and beer, but coming at lunch I never get to try them. Order the onion rings. They are madeof red... More

Went in yesterday for a late lunch. Was greeted upon arrival by a waitress in a stained shirt (no uniforms there), it was very off-putting. Ordered a pulled-pork sandwich that was very good and I did enjoy the 6 options of barbeque sauce. However, my beer glass had a chip in it. I mentioned it to my server and she... More

Service sucks. Food is good. I've been coming here for years and the management doesn't seem to ever improve service. Shame...great food.

We needed to use an expiring Groupon and stopped by on a very cold, windy evening - around 6pm. Already, restaurant was busy, hadn't been upstairs but hostess suggested eating at the bar upstairs so up we went. A few open tables - but were reserved so we were relegated to the bar. Upstairs also has a very small stage... More

We have eaten at the Belmont several times and the ribs were always good. Saturday night several of us ordered Memphis Dry Rub ribs. These ribs were tough and tasteless, You could not cut them with knife that was part of the table setting. Even with a sharp knife we had to hack at it. Also, for two of us... More

Service: This comment is NOT about your servers. They did their job but should inform guests about the wait time to receive meals. I watched everyone who arrived with us. Yes, just like us bored to tears waiting on our meals. I saw guests wanting to be seated and you had no hostess. This was your all you can eat... More
