We decided to have dinner out this year. Reservations were required for this event. We were seated in an outdoor enclosed tent addition. Dinner was a fixed price for 3 courses - salad, entree, and dessert. Appetizers were an additional cost. By the time we decided on appetizers, we selected a small assortment of seafood that consisted of large shrimp,... More

I took my Mother and my 100 year old Aunt today for their birthdays and this restaurant was excellent. I am a tough critic too. My Brother cooks for real royalty such as the Prince of Morocco, etc. The waiter was the epitome of Professional, that you just don't get anymore in this world of millennials ! Highly recommend and... More

Wanted to take my husband some place special for his birthday so I chose the Blue Bell Inn. Was very disappointed. There was a bad group playing in the bar area and the noise coming from the bar was loud. As the restaurant itself filled the noise level in here made it so loud we had trouble balking to each...

This 1743 Stone building was renovated & updated a few years ago and the result is amazing. Modernized inside and out, the Inn's history and some menu items remain. With a new, spectacular outdoor courtyard with seating, full bar, fire pit and appropriate live music in warm weather months, your dining experience is definitely enhanced. The menu is all American... More

Went here for Lunch with family and had a lovely time. The services was excellent as our waiter was great and did not rush us at all. Would definitely recommend this restaurant for lunch or dinner.

Brunch was delicious from the pastries, fruit and main course. Attentive staff. Five stars for the staff. Loved every part. Drove 2 hours to the event and would not hesitate returning after the...

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.

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.
