We had a great relaxing time but ate outside. Good was very good. The wedge seafood salad was great but could have been a meal. I had the crab soup and tuna tartare and it was great. The chef gave us a taste of pasta bundle with vodka sauce as a welcome starter. It was great. When we went to... More

This was my fourth or fifth visit and was the best by far. The cocktails and food were excellent. It was not busy so the service was excellent. But this place is always loud, even when not crowded.

My husband and I went for our anniversary on a Saturday night. We had the margarita flatbread and calamari for appetizer. Both were delicious. I Hess the the filet mignon and my husband had the seared ahi tuna. Both were delicious but I wish I had more vegetables. I guess the cost goes for quality not quantity. This would be... More

This was our first visit. We started with cocktails in the bar. The live music was enjoyable, but the guitarist really didn't need to be hooked to an amplifier. Would have been more enjoyable as "background music." We ate in one of the quieter upstairs dining rooms. Each course was delicious! We especially liked the seafood wedge appetizer! Our server,...

Poor service, we had to wait over a half our to have our drinks served. My daughter had to go find the waitress to ask where our drinks were. When the food came it, it was... More

Reasonable Happy Hour (half price wine Wednesday) started our group out. Great table inside but with the doors/walls open. Warm day, not sure I would have enjoyed it on some hot summer days. Diver Bay scallops were particularly good.

Description
In April 2013, after changing ownership, Blue Bell Inn closed its doors and underwent extensive renovation and redesign for over a year. In an effort to preserve historical significance, various aspects of the Inn were kept intact and enhanced through thoughtful restoration. An exposed rock wall from the original 18th century edifice was refurbished and is a focal point in the main dining room. Antique glass and old-fashioned bottles reclaimed during construction were repurposed into striking pieces of art throughout the restaurant. A more spacious floor plan was developed and quintessential indoor-outdoor spaces now encourage seasonal dining. New materials such as Italian porcelain tile, black marble and solid white oak were introduced to create a unique rustic-meets-modern ambiance. Today, Blue Bell Inn serves as a stunning architectural melange spanning three centuries.
