    We loved the location and the margaritas were very good but our meal wasn't great. I got the lobster Mac and cheese and it was barely warm and there was about 5 pieces of fishy lobster on top. The consistency of the mac and cheese reminded me of a microwavable Bob Evans Mac and cheese. It was $25. The onion rings were really greasy too. Fresh cut fries are a plus. Would like to try their breakfast sometime though!

    We were there on a Sunday evening. Way understaffed. In fairness, our server warned us after we were seated it would take awhile because they were short staff. 2 servers, one hostess/bar tender, and the kitchen must have been short too. It was 90 minutes from when we arrived before we received our food. Some who came in later than us were served sooner, possibly because they just had sandwiches versus our entrees. Regardless.... Of the 4 meals, the grouper and salmon were excellent, the lamb OK, and the chicken tough and not good. Plus they forgot some side dished they brough later. So a mixed report card on the food. Our server was friendly, very good, when she got to us just stretched and tired. She'd been there since breakfast. The setting is excellent, and the decor simple but very nice. This place has real potential, but we won't be back for a while until we hear better reports.

    They need to make smaller proportions on the appetizers and dinners. Also tell us the number of purses not pounds of things on the menu.

    What a perfect place to enjoy a meal at the bar by yourself, a date night for two, or an evening out with friends. The food is beyond delicious and the portions will have you going home with a second meal for later! And the view of the lake…it’s breathtaking!

    Service was very good, bar jammed when busy, prices pushing the limit a tad, food quite good. Great addition to Vacationland dining options.

    We had a wonderful experience at bay bell! Our reservation for 10 was all set up and ready for our family. Our server was fantastic! She had a great personality. All of our food was delicious as usual. We were celebrating a birthday and anniversary. The owner came out Champagne for us as a surprise. How awesome is that! We love Bay Bell!

    The place is beautiful and happy to see a nice new restaurant on the Bay. When we walked in the sign stated wait to be seated so we did. Two workers were setting at the bar and never acknowledged us, one server walked by more than once and never acknowledged us, another girl was folding silverware and never acknowledged us and finally after 5 minutes Isabella asked us if we wanted a table and we said yes, her response was put off that we did not seat ourselves so I pointed out to her that sign said “please wait to be seated”. I had the lobster Mac and Cheese but not at all worth $25. It was not hot and my husbands salad was served after the dinner.

    Our first dinner at Bay Bell and it was a wonderful experience. Food was delicious and a very nice presentation. Server was friendly and kept us informed of status. We had calamari and mussels for appetizers and both were very good. Definitely will go back.

    The Service was Decent, our server was also tending the bar so it took her awhile to take our order after we were immediately served drinks. The Steaks were excellent but wish we had dinner rolls like other steak houses. I didn’t know if we had to order those separate? Overall, I’d rate the dining experience good but a little expensive for us to return again soon.

    Thé staff was very accommodating to special needs (walkers) and the chef also believed in the concept of the customer is always right. A concept many restaurants do not honor today. We will continue to support this exceptional establishment.

    We tried it because we had been wanting to but never had an opportunity till last Saturday. Went back a week later, the chef was very accommodating to the guest’s request. Definitely follows the concept that the customer comes first. We will return again and again.
