Not much to say other than the place is a poor man's Cracker Barrel. Girlfriend had the turkey sandwich served with mashed potatoes and gravy which she said tasted okay. I had the grilled ham & swish with fries. Sandwich came with the bread super greasy and burned black on both sides. Could tell that the meat and cheese had... More

This a local restaurant and recommend to us as the place to go for good home cooking. My husband had chicken and I had ham. It was okay, but not extraordinary.

I live here in Berea and Dinner Bell is my go-to joint for breakfast. I always order the same (Low Fat Breakfast). It's my favorite and I do not stray from it. My siblings from out-of-state also enjoy coming here for breakfast with me when they are in town. As for lunch and dinner, I remain wary as the last... More

Good home cooked meals.Good for breakfast or dinner. This is not a chain restaurant and has probably been around quite a while.

We learned last week that the previous owners have sold the business. This does not mean that you will experience a decrease in the quality of service and food. Quite the contrary! Ownership shifts should bring positive benefits to customers.

Having gone to Cracker Barrel the night before travelling from Florida to Ohio, we thought we would try the Dinner Bell. Big mistake. Water was dripping on my husband from a dirty vent, the food was horrible unless you love a lot of salt, and don't even get me started on the filthy fan that hangs above the tables. Our... More

The cod is excellent! Serving sizes are very good too. But, three people had the specials with gravy and most did not even eat it.

Although the restaurant is a little shabby looking the food was surprisingly good and the service was great. The price is inexpensive for the quality.
