Fun little spot to dine outside when weather permits. Easy to find location in downtown Cape Girardeau. As I hear things it is under new management and will re-open spring of 2017. Great burgers and grilled items.

Great outdoor area to sit with friends and listen to music. Busy in summer. Good food as well. Happy hour is great.

Downtown has had such a resurgence lately. With recognition by the National Trust for Historic Preservation and a Preserve Missouri award, the city has seen renewed growth. New shops and shoppers. It is exciting to see. This restaurant is not up to the standard. The menu is VERY limited, printed on a single sheet of paper made into faded copies.... More

Although it is a dumpy little bar, it has some endearing qualities. Nice deck. Decent bar food. Reasonable prices. Adequate parking.

I've always been a fan of the bar, but had my first taste of their food on my birthday. I loved the potato skins, my friends loved their tacos and burger! Will definitely be back for more!

My husband and I had a rare night out with his coworkers at Bel Aire on a Saturday night. The inside area of the establishment is dingy, but in nice weather, the outside area is great. Being a smoke hater in an area that allows smoking in public places, the outdoor option is a must for me. It was busy... More

My boyfriend plays in a band, so I've been here a few times, but only when he was playing. It was crowded every time, but we never experienced slow service. It is your typical bar food, but I do enjoy being able to sit outside and get away from the crowds.
