Celebrating my friend’s birthday and celebrating being able to. Everything was over the top. Our server Kathy was so friendly and helped us with all of our menu choices. She knows how to make people feel welcome. I will request to sit in her section from now on. Belfre’s Kitchen was a wonderful experience. I have only one warning- if you choose to sit inside, the noise level is on the high side.

Overall Impression = Top Notch!
My granddaughter and I gave it two thumbs up for: 1) delicious, clean, tasty, appetizing, creative food, 2) excellent staff, 3) relaxed, comfortable ambiance 4) quaint location.
I had the poke bowl with Yellowfin tuna and found everything in the bowl appetizing. We started with an appetizer of roasted asparagus on a bed of delicious white sauce sprinkled with toasted pine nuts. Entrees were superb, desserts over the top, wine - excellent.

We’ve always had really great food and service at Belfre. They changed the menu, which didn’t seem as broad as in the past. Food was average, at best. It was disappointing. We’ll try again and hope for better since we are using quite pleased.

We’ve been here a couple times and I must say the food is very fresh and tasty. I do find this place very noisy and I feel the prices are very high for what you get. An $18 salad had about 2-3 ounces of chicken on it.
Not sure if we will return.

Been to Belfre several times for dinner. Consistently good mix of menu items that we usually like. Excellent service and ambience. Prices are on the high side for the area and seem to have crept up higher recently, which puts it at a fair, but not excellent value.

Excellent food and service. Noise level was very loud. We were sitting upstairs and the noise from below was bouncing off the ceiling, making it difficult to have a conversation. I would come back, but sit outside instead.

We had a lovely lunch outside on a sunny afternoon. Delicious walleye sandwich (no bun) and glass of Sangria. Service was great. Definitely will go back!

I loved everything about our visit to Belfre Kitchen! It was our anniversary and they gave us free drinks (prosecco), didn't say anything about our anniversary (as I had asked). The cocktails we had were wonderfully made, the appetizer, entree, and dessert were all so delicious. The wait staff was also amazing! Everything about our experience here was the best. I would recommend to anyone I know!

Cocktails, wine selection, cauliflower and Chicken liver pate amazing! Walleye on Fri is 2nd to none in fact they were out (along with the tasty salmon) by the time we got there for dinner at the end of the night. Had the pork chop (juicy and on the bone!) and swordfish instead and both were delicious! Always excellent service and Amy took really good care of us. Thanks again for another wonderful dining experience!

We had high hopes when we arrived. Food was VERY good. Service was mediocre at best. You could tell our server did not want to be there and it ruined the entire experience. She completely forgot to put our appetizer in. Definitely not worth the money. Ambiance could have been better as well, restaurant was bright and you could barely hear the music at all. We will not be back.

Our breakfast was very good. I think the hollandaise needed a bit more flavor on the Crab cake Benedict. My husband really enjoyed his breakfast burrito. Food is very good! Server was excellent! We recommend the Belfre Kitchen!

Phenomenal spot for brunch. Felt like all the appropriate COVID precautions were being taken. Can't wait to go back for dinner, the only problem with which will be that the drop donuts are not available in the evening - those should be available 24/7/365.

Great service. Had a Friday dinner table reservation for two. Ordered filet mignon and halibut. Reasonable waiting time for food while we were working on some drinks. It was delicious and well served. Will definitely come again. There’s outdoor seating available. Will consider that next time when it gets warmer!

We ate outside and the service/environment was wonderful. My husband loved his burger, I ordered a salmon Poke' bowl and it was served with fully cooked salmon 🤔 The taste of the dish was average but preparation was confusing for a "Poke' Bowl". I didn't want to grumble so I just ate it. If I were to go again I would make sure to be more clear about what I'm ordering.

Great service and food in a cozy upscale environment, but without it feeling too "stuffy". They were also very accommodating about making alterations to drinks and food to suit personal preferences.

I made my reservation and put down that we were coming in to celebrate a retirement. They were fabulous! They gave everyone in the party (4) a complimentary glass of wine and my husband was given a dessert large enough for all of us to have a small bite to enjoy! Our server was wonderful, kind and efficient! Will definitely be back!
My only preference would have been to space the tables out to 6 feet.

The food was excellent. All items were tasty. We especially loved the roasted cauliflower starter. Great selection of chef inspired items. Nice selection of cocktails and wine as well. Our waitstaff was excellent and we enjoyed our evening. The only issue was it was very cold for a portion of our meal but the air conditioning was adjusted at our request.

AWESOME food! Love that it’s all local food! We were here for brunch! Just my husband and I! We were having such a good time and filled up on the AWESOME donuts that we didn’t even realize that a little more than normal time passed and our food wasn’t brought to us yet. The server came to double check that she wasn’t losing her mind haha. So she checked the kitchen then the owner came over and apologized left and right. Our food came out shortly! Hot and delicious! He got the omelette that he loved and I tried the French toast! Oh my gosh it was all amazing! They took our entrees off of our bill - which wasn’t necessary for us! But we will for sure be back and we made sure to tip our server off of the original bill amount! HIGHLY RECOMMEND! (Side note: I’m pregnant so I had the virgin bloody - risky, I know - but it was perfect! I can only imagine how much better it would be with vodka!)

We dine here often and always get amazing food, drinks and service. Building acoustics are challenging when sitting on the 2nd floor when the restaurant is full or when there are big parties as it can get really loud. Great to see the restaurant thriving though and still our favorite local spot!

Maybe put some yellow tape along the edge of the landing. As I was walking down it looked flush with the floor and I tripped and bumped into a waitress and spilled her coffee. I felt bad for her, but I would hate for some ambulance-chaser to file a complaint.
