We went to the Blue Bell Inn on Saturday for Mother's day dinner. We were seated promptly. Service was good throughout the meal. I ordered Bronzino, a favorite fish of mine. Whatever fish I was served was NOT Bronzino. My guess is was the barramundi,...More

Good size group for after business meeting meal and drinks. Food was great and so was the service. The center cut filet was outstanding. Others had the scallops, seared tuna and the veal special. The atmosphere was great.

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.
