Bell's has some fabulous Beer. The 5oz tasting pours are a nice way to sample the variety brews. One the downside was the extremely limited seating. We traveled in a group of 4. At 2:00 on a Saturday afternoon we found ourselves unable to sit at the bar. We could have waited for a seat in the restaurant, but we... More

Great spot for lunch meeting! Truly a stop for anyone visiting Kalamazoo! The food and drinks are great but affordable. The vibe is hip and casual. The service was friendly and attentive but not intrusive.

Stopped in for dinner and some of the finest craft beer in west Michigan. HopSlam was on tap as well as Bell's Double Brown. Appetizers were plentiful and the meals were as expected...delicious!

Most people go to bells for the beer, I go for the food ( they do offer a good ginger ale). They offer a decent menu with options for vegetarians and vegans. However I'm disappointed they took away the curry tofu dish. I hope they consider bringing that back.

Love Bells beer! Fun exploring new beers, and Bells is consistently excellent. Food is good as well. My only gripe is a lack of food or drinks for the gluten-free crowd. (like my wife) They have only one cider that was not up to the same snuff as their beer. Highly recommend for craft beer hounds.
