We loved this new restaurant, ambiance, food and service, as well! We would have liked to see the servers dressed a little better, some were sloppy looking with ill-fitting clothes. However, that did not detract from the delicious menu and the best martini in town....More

Pleasantly greeted at the door by a cordial gentleman who led us up the stairs to the Belfry. He hung our coats and seated us. The service was prompt and friendly and the steak and chicken that we ordered was yummy. We would definitely return.
