We stopped late in the lunch hour to grab a quick sandwich. We had the patty melt and a hot ham and cheese. We agreed that both sandwiches were excellent and the service was very good. We also tried a piece of Coconut meringue pie. Yum!!!

My family and I were passing through Berea today and decided to stop at Dinner Bell. So glad we did!! It was absolutely delicious!!Probably the best fried chicken I've ever had in my life. Service was great too. We all 3 just had to get to go orders for our spouses so they could experience too. We will be driving... More

Ate dinner here last night. The vegetable beef soup was very flavorful. The hot turkey sandwich was made with real turkey and not processed deli meat. Decided to stop in for breakfast and it was just as good as dinner. Very pleasant staff.

We visited here because they advertised breakfast served "all day," and were hoping for a delicious down home meal. Unfortunately, we chose the day when the staff were learning a new computer system and had to wait for about ten minutes before we were even greeted at our table. The meals were ordered were just average in taste. The country... More

To be honest, it's a location we go to more for convenience than anything. This past visit seemed better than at other times we've been here in the past, which is why I gave it a higher rating. There had been some work on the inside, it seemed, the service was exceptional, and the food was good. I like the... More

I have visited the Dinner Bell restaurant 4 or 5 times. Every time I have had a great experience. It reminds me of the Cracker Barrel restaurants. A country atmosphere but more elbow room to spread out than Cracker Barrel. We had my mom's 85th birthday there and had plenty of room for a party of 30+. My husband and... More

Had a dinner meeting with my group in their meeting room. I think we overwhelmed the kitchen and waitress. Me and about 3 others were finished eating before the 5th from last got their food. Group of 20. For a two hour sitting I was only able to receive one refill. On the other hand the food was wonderful. They... More

Chose Dinner Bell for breakfast late Saturday morning on way back home from an overnight in Berea. Service was friendly from the hostess, to the Server and to the Cashier. Breakfast was delicious. I had the French Toast with nice crisp bacon like I wanted. My husband had country ham plate with eggs, bisquits and grits; he ate it all... More

We have taken lunch at Dinner Bell Restaurant in Berea for many years. Dinner Bell Restaurant seems to be part of a very small chain of restaurants. Even though we have made many previous visits, the North intersection is extremely busy, and the flowers sell from the Amish Store obscured the entrance to Dinner Bell. Exit at the S Berea... More
