This is a little restaurant inside a market. Buy meat/fish/cheese to take home for your own creativity after you enjoy their unusual menu items that will make you go outside your comfort zone. They have a large variety of wines to fit every pallet. Portabella mushroom is a must from the menu.

I will never go to String Bean on a Friday again! The food is outstanding with a very innovative menu and fresh ingredients. I could eat here often and try everything, but it is so crowded on the week-end! The tables are too close for any conversation and the music is too loud to hear, anyway. The servers have a hard time moving through the crowd and have too many table per server. Our's tried her best but we received our meals with the dirty appetizer dishes still on the table and no room for anything else. She removed my wine glass without asking if I would like another. We will go back but either very early or very late during the week!

Wonderful ambiance, and great menu selection. Attentive service. Maybe it was our selections (chicken salad & steak), but the food wasn't terribly overwhelming. However it was good :) the a,nuance is what makes it and we will be back to try different entrees.

First, the beer and wine avaiability is great, especially for a small town in this geographic area. And ifmyou think they rely on the beverages to stay afloat, guess again. This place grinds their own meats from local vendors, and even makes the meat and fish available to purchase by the pound. Ican't say enough good things about this place.go for yourself! And fyi, the fes green tomatoes and bisin burgers are FANTASTIC :)
