“Love this place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2012

Rye Belles is in the old St. Joe Elks building. The owner of the place kept much of the old layout (bar,) and updated everything - decor is toward an upscale feel instead of bar trend. The new look is very nice and inviting for drinks with friends or dinner with family. Our food was very good - had three different varieties of pizza and the firecracker shrimp. The shrimp was amazing; especially if you like SPICY food! Drink and food prices were fairly reasonable. Don't mind spending the money on good food! The only dislike was that the noise level was loud. Once the crowd by the bar died down, the noise level was a lot better. With that said, the noise will not keep us from returning to Rye Belles!

“Cocktail Party”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

We held a cocktail party for out of town guests that arrived a day early. Was a great choice for this event. The bartender was great and all the guests loved Rye Belles. Nice warm atmosphere and really friendly help.

“Never eat here! Owner is raciest!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2012

The owner kicked out a group of Hispanic-Americans and asked them to go back to Mexico. This isn't the first time the owner was rude. If they are close to closing time he will turn up the lights and tell you to get out. He also go in a fight with a large table of Lakeland medical residents. Please don't support rude and raciest businesses!

“Terrible Food, Terrible Service”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2012

Only thing good is rooftop. Not worth the money. Terrible service. Slow and inefficient.
Food was not fresh Salmon was overcooked and smelly. Don't waste your time. Bistro don't the road is a more fair choice and still a lake view.
