We enjoy going here, The outdoor patio is really nice and the food is excellent. They have craft brews too. The wait can be long but the food is wonderful.

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.
