A word from The Belfry Gastro House
The gastro house is the merriment of the highest quality freshly prepared food, celebrated with a vast selection of thirst quenchers in a “public house” (pub) setting. The belfry...by definition is a bell tower, offering as a beacon, usually standing alone, for the surrounding villagers & travellers that they have reached their destination, whether it be before, after or everything in between.

    Way to slow, food cold, soup cold. Po'boy bun way to dry & hard, chicken sandwich drenched in mango salsa, soggy, should be served on the side.

    Went for a business lunch. They were understaffed, so it took a long time to get our order taken and a long time to get our food. It had clearly been sitting out too long between the time it was prepared and when it was finally served as it was cold.

  • Better than average pub food
    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 6/9/2014
    Service was good, attentive. Food was better than average pub food. The onion ring appetizer was delicious, as was the steak sandwich. The caesar salad was disappointing, but overall, we thought it was a decent meal. We wouldn't make a special trip to the area to go to the Belfry, but if we were in the area and looking for a place to grab a bite, we'd definitely go back.

    I reserved for lunch on a Friday. I'm glad made a reservation because our was busy. The food was tasty and service was friendly and attentive even though it was busy. My only complaints were that a lot of their beer was "out" despite being told by the server that they had an extensive be list and the pea shots in the fish tacos were whole, making it difficult to eat. That being said, everything was really good!

  • Do not order the cobb salad
    OpenTable Diner Since 2013
    Dined on 5/8/2014
    The worst cobb salad I have ever had. The waitress was less than friendly as well. I would only recommend going here for a quick drink but not for food or friendly staff.

    Everyone was happy with the food. My bison burger was great. Our waitress was good in setting our expectation when we sat down that the kitchen was slow that day. It took more than 30 minutes for the food to come but that was okay...we were warned.

    Had a reservation for 11:45. Was seated, but not approached for 15 minutes. Not great if you are out for lunch from work. Was late getting back to work as a result. It was very noisy! Food was okay, but came out cold. Since everything was so late, I ate it anyway as I did not have time to send it back and wait again. Probably will not go back.
