Restaurant Review


Bell's Tavern is popular with the locals and families who come to enjoy good food in a friendly tavern setting at a very affordable price.


Bell's Tavern, located several blocks north of the center of town since 1938, was purchased around 2000 by Chef Paul Eschallier who serves up well prepared food with fresh ingredients.


From the outside, the place looks like a neighborhood pub. You will enter into the large oval bar with a congenial tavern atmosphere, with a large display TV.


For dinner, there is a large comfortable eating area that seats around 60 people in an unpretentious decor with paper napkins, heavy silverware, and white china.


If you enjoy a drink before your dinner, settle in at the bar for a good selection of Irish brews, wines, and cocktails.


They offer a menu with a variety of sauces and ingredients. If you are looking for more than pasta, they offer shrimp, oysters, and steaks and burgers from the grill.


For those with a smaller appetite, or for children's dishes, most of the pasta dishes are available as half orders.


Bell's Tavern is child and family friendly
