something about a racist remark, probably by the same bartender. A place where the bartenders get verbally abused , threatened , touched and the customers are still allowed to come back. Only when you see the bartender selling cocaine at the end of the bar...with her friends do you get banned. They overserve someone with a walking problem. He usually ends up passing out in the bathroom and the customers have to clean up after him. The last times I went there they had to pour multiple beers due to cracked glasses. Mind you I was sitting at the bar, still waited over 15 minutes to be served. This is the environment and atmosphere they create, problems happen here between the bums outside and the patrons inMore

i was staying local and found this bar by chance the staff were friendly and polite and the bar very clean and well presented. The bar was located next to the train station so easy for a few beers whilst waiting for your train home

Myself and two friends went to Bello's on a recommendation from the DoubleTree Hilton - Newark (Meisha) and we had such a wonderful experience. John who was our server couldn't have been more welcoming and accommodating. We all enjoyed our lunch and would definitely come...back. He gave us fun facts regarding the nuances about this neighborhood gem, for example the pint club, make sure you ask John when you visit !More

Quaint little hometown sports bars. Grabbed some beer and food after a trip to NYC. Awesome wings, had a bowl of their "crab and corn chowder" and some local beers and mixed drinks. Fast friendly service and excellent dining options.

Had a good meal at Bellos. Excellent local IPA on tap. Great house cut fries! Good chicken parmesan sandwich, with grilled chicken substitution. Attentive server.

Went here with a group of friends after a Devil's game. Good food, drinks, and service. Our group was large and they did well accommodating us. Great variety of food and a great option when in the area.

Great pub just opposite Newark Penn station. I walked in and was surprised by the variety of beers on offer. I had not seen Pabst Blue Ribbon on tap for a long time. The waitresses were both very helpful and knowledgeable - they gave me...tasters of two regional IPAs. They cost only $ 7 per pint (next time I consider going out in Manhattan I might take the PATH to drink here instead. Clientele is also very beer-oriented, I met lady who turned out to be a homebrewer. She also had advice on local beers,More

Amazing selection of drafts on hand, the food was great and the service was quick. We stopped several times to grab lunch and were never let down. The staff, in particular, was professional and quick. The variety on the menu never let us down for...the different tastes we had in our group. I enjoyed the pulled pork the best, and the sauce on it was very pleasing.More

Bellos drinks are wonderful! They make the best apple martini s, the best margarita and they are reasonably priced! The bartenders are friendly and attentive. The food is delicious!

Stopped in for a beer last Saturday evening before Devils game. Cute pub. Place was full but not packed. There were no tables but there was standing room. (The upstairs was closed). Waitress told us we had to get drinks from the bartender. Bartender ignored...us. Then the waitress told us we were standing in a bad place. My husband had been here before and enjoyed it. Based on the positive reviews, it may have been a bad night. I have never felt so unwelcomed. We left and won't be back.More

Stopped in for a easy dinner and had a spicy night at Bellos. Nice beer selection to start the night. Added the crab corn chowder specialty that had a nice flavor and sufficient heat spice to get your attention. Came out pipping hot. Add the...Picadinho specialty which is a nice collection of pork, shrimp, clams, cilantro, potatoes, onions, peppers, wine sauce, jalapeño. Has a bit of heat so no need to add pepper. Great sauce that you need to get with bread when done. Good size for 2 to share. Enjoy.More

I had a week in Newark in May and made Bello’s my regular lunchtime spot for a few beers and lunch. Great bar with Awesome Bar-staff, Peggy, Tina & Corrina who always made an English Man welcome! Good food, Great Beer, Great Staff and friendly...locals. Busy lunchtime crowd and packed on a couple of evening visits. Lots of Sports on TV and soccer memorabilia, scarfs etc on the ceiling. Red Bull Arena is walkable from the bar. Highly recommended if in Newark!More
