The burgers at The String Bean are absolutely delicious! I had the Cowpig Burger! It was cooked just right!

My wife and I visited this week and were pleasantly surprised. The food was super good, we started with the eggplant fries which were awesome. I got the ribeye and scallops, the steak was good but the scallops were outstanding. My wife got the Ruben and I have to say it is one of the best we had. Good service... More

stopped by to enjoy lunch outside. I had the Pear & Gorginzola salad with grilled chicken and my companions both had the Reuben with sweet potatoes fries. Salad was large, fresh and very tasty. The sandwiches were filling, juicy and the pastrami melted in your mouth. A side order of fruit was delightful. Service was prompt and we will return.

I am a local, eat at the SB quite a bit. Nice servers, good folks and pretty well rounded menu. I recommend the BBQ egg roll appetizers and their chicken salad is very good, too. Nice patio for dining outside in good weather.

We found the String Bean on the Main Street of Belmont, NC. The food and service were excellent. Cooked the burgers to our liking. Sides, of sweet potato fries and loved the eggplant fries, were great. Varied menu, vegetarian offerings on menu. Great selection of local and name beers. Adequate inside eating area, outside seating for good weather. Beside the... More

Could've been an off night but the food was just so so. The bread seemed old and a bit stale. The shrimp appetizers were pretty good. Went back a second time and had the steak and to my disappointment, it was tough. Mentioned that to the manager and he could have cared less. We actually got into an uncomfortable debate... More

We had NYE dinner here, the food was excellent and our server was friendly and helpful. We both ordered the filet as our entree, well prepared but thin for a filet.

The String Bean is located in Downtown Belmont. We decided to stop by, somewhat serendipitously on a Friday night. While there was a wait for a table, two spots at the bar were open, serving the full kitchen menu. The space was cozy and warm, with a bottle shop in the front, scattered with some tables. Right before christmas, the... More

We both enjoyed the Elliot Ness beer and both burgers were excellent! I had the String Bean Bistro Burger and my friend enjoyed the Bison Burger - he did add bacon just to give it an extra crunch and flavor. Burgers were cooked exactly as ordered Bistro was medium rare and the Bison burger arrived 'medium' as ordered. Sides were... More

Seeking a sandwich, possibly to go, we decided to give the String Bean a chance. Upon entering, we were met with a warm and slightly smoky atmosphere that enhanced our hunger and enticed us to grab a pair of seats at the bar. The beer menu is impressive, with an appropriate mix of solid and dependable brews and a handful... More

Located in Historic Downtown Belmont, our building is right on main street. We have our very own parking, conveniently located right beside our newly renovated, large outdoor patio. Just keep an eye out for The String Bean 'green' shade sails.
