The service was great. The food was wonderful! It was EXTREMELY NOISY! I was very disappointed that it wasn’t decorated for the holidays. Not sure we’ll come back due to the noise level.
We sat in back dining room which was less noisy that front. Service was very good and food was excellent.
Service was excellent. Ambiance was great - very festive for the holidays. Food was excellent. As always, BBI does not disappoint!
Went for a Christmas lunch and had a wonderful experience. There was a warm holiday vibe. Our apps of Toast with whipped ricotta and the snow crab claws were delicious. Our waiter was helpful, attentive but not at all overbearing.
Good tasted good. Service lacked water refills and attention. We waited almost 20 mins for our server to come back and offer our check. Never got check backs to see how food was.
Manager came by, pleasant lady. Would definitely go back but not the service I’d expect for the pricing.
Just wanted something different, and was not disappointed
The BBI offers a great menu, formal dining room, casual dining in bar area or outside under a closed in tent with party lights. Weekends offer live music.
Beautiful atmosphere for whatever your mood.
I have eaten here quite a few times and usually I am not disappointed. However, this time I ordered a black bean burger and it came out cold. To the point that I had to deduce that it had been frozen or at least refrigerated and improperly heated. I sent it back. The second one came out not much better. My sister and my niece were both pleased with their lunch. However, I cannot get past the fact that they don't know how to heat a veggie burger properly. To their credit, they did take it off the bill, but that really didn't help me have an enjoyable dining experience. Since I am on a special eating program, this was the only thing I wanted from the menu, so subbing something else was not an option. They did accommodate our request for a socially distanced table.
Great food & service. Marissa helped us upon our arrival to find the perfect table and checked back with us during our meal. Her professional demeanor, great smile, and sense of humor really made BBI our absolute new favorite!
Amazing meal with incredible selection and quality. Impressive wine selection as well.
Awesome food . Great service from John .
Enjoyed a very nice lunch. The Pumpkin Lobster Bisque soup was outstanding!
Our servers were great. Very attentive. I had the crab cake. Very small. Like a an appetizer. And just ok fortaste.a little bland. Salads are fresh but heavy on the greens. I paid $18 for a kale salad. Way way over priced. I expected much more than what I paid for
Good was prepared to specifications. Great service
I had heard some really great things about this establishment beforehand so my expectations were pretty high. Without a doubt, it was even better than described to me. I received such a friendly greeting and was seated promptly. The server, Joe, really went above and beyond and helped make recommendations about the menu and wine list. The food was excellent. To top everything off, the manager, Marissa, introduced herself and spent a few minutes talking to me about my experience. She could not have been sweeter. Very professional staff completely on the top of their game. Kudos to your team and we look forward to seeing you again soon 👍
Birthday dinner for wife and daughter.
This was our first meal at The Blue Bell Inn. Overall the the experience was disappointing for the price paid. The waitress was pleasant when she appeared but I feel taken when the meal is slapped on your table by a kid who’s job it is to carry meals to the table and say enjoy! Then the waitress returns a few minutes later and says how is everything then disappears. The food was good but overpriced for the overall experience. I guess I expect more for a $138 plus tip.
It was a great night with live music. The band performed very well. Service was really excellent.
Great food and drink, great company, great service. Beautiful building.
Just a tip, if you see a blue liquid pump in the women's bathroom it is mouthwash and not hand soap! :)
Best chicken caesar salad ever. The music from Tim Williams was great too! And Joe was a great server!
Consistently good, not inexpensive but good value for price. Service also excellent.
Terrific overall experience - combination of food, service and venue was great.

Always a great meal!
Good food. Nice hostess. Our waiter James was very nice and helpful. Would recommend and patronize again.
Great birthday experience
Food was great, service was amazing!
First time, Last time
1. Seafood wedge salad had stringy chewy seafood.
2. Asked for spinach as a side on 2 meals. Got string beans.
3. Mushroom rub on salmon way too salty.
4. Salmon was supposed to come on risotto but came on minute rice.
5. Manager didn’t come to table when we complained.
6. When she finally came, she defended and made excuses for everything. No apology.
7. She defended that rice is the same as risotto.
8. Ordered 3 desserts. Only 1 came. When we asked, another came, but not the third. Had to ask AGAIN.
9. No apology from the managers. Service was average and declined after we complained.
Waiter fabulous. (Eric). Table nicely distanced. Love The Oak Room. Valet service excellent. Food wonderful.
Everything was awesome!
The lunch menu offered 2 3oz filets which were delicious. However that was it except for a garnish of tiny potato sticks. I ordered a side of brussel sprouts which could have fed 2 to 3 people. Why not include a small side with the filets and add an extra 1 or 2 dollars. Besides that everything was wonderful. Always enjoy coming here.
Little pricey but food was good.
Birthday with friends.
Excellent dining experience! Warm welcome by the hostess. We both had seafood dishes which were excellent and split a creme brulee for dessert. Greeted by manager (Marrisa) welcoming us and checked in on our satisfaction!! Wonderful!! Way to go Blue Bell Inn!!
Excellent, they always have both East and west coast oyster choices which is unusual in the Philly burbs but greatly appreciated by me. Our server, Les, was knowledgeable, attentive but not overbearing and pleasant. My highest rating!
Great service. Terrific atmosphere. Still a great experience with a good menu.
Waitress was excellent
Best crispy calamari ever…great lobster roll, steak, burger and tuna tartare. Love this place! Our server, Joe, was outstanding.
