Amazing food and atmosphere! Highly recommend checking this place out!
I made a reservation for my anniversary, and I was so excited to try the food at Bell Hall- but it exceeded my expectations! It was delicious, and the service was great. I will definitely be returning again!!
The burgers themselves were good. The rolls were not. Told the manager and he did give us a gift card for next visit. He did say 2 other tables complained about the rolls also. Chef had decided to try these. Not a good decision.
When we arrived the hostess claimed they were out of highchairs. It wasn't until we threatened to leave that the manager looked in the basement and came back with three high chairs for us and another table that also needed one (this was the weekend of Disney on Ice so be prepared). Waitress had a generally poor demeanor, seem disinterested the entire meal. Food was pretty good, not mind blowing but pretty good. Apps, nachos and calamari, came out suspiciously fast (like under 3 minutes) that made you think they were premade.
There was a very long hair in our appetizer as well as on my fiancées glass of beer, we believe it was the waitress as she had very long hair that was not pulled up and they didn’t even offer to take it off the bill or bring us a new one on the house and then when she finally asked if we wanted a new one we already had our meals
Appetizers were great. Meals were great. We had a great experience.
Our small company Christmas party was held at Bell Hall. None of us had ever been there. The food and beer selections were great.
Staff was very unprofessional Service was slow for no one being in the restaurant roll was stale and the Burger was not that good had better burgers at Red Robin's
The menu it has lots of options for all your eaters. The food was good. I went with two people who are not into craft beers and the server wasn't able to make any recommendations. Very was disappointing. I really disliked the ambiance. I expected more for a brand new restaurant. Lighting was very bright, it wasn't very inviting. So many other restaurants in the Allentown area have a cozy atmosphere, the dining room of this restaurant does not.
For a good burger there are dozens of other restaurants that have parking. We will pick one of those next time.
Great food, service, and atmosphere! Not to mention a great value!
We comes with some fo our friends, it was a first time for 2 couples.
They enjoyed the food, they all felt it was fun and a nice diversion from other places we frequent.
The food was not fresh. The vegetables were soggy. My coleslaw was not fresh and the Mac and cheese taste like it was from a box
Great place for beer and burgers with a nice atmosphere!
Great atmosphere. Always great food and great drinks. Great location by parking garages
All was good except the known issue with the spotted lantern flies and the restaurant had their large doors open which allowed the flies to enter and then land on me during dinner. When we asked to close the door there was hesitation bc of a band playing later, yet I would think the customers experience and ability to eat without these nuisance flies around would be more important. They did close one of the several large doors that were opened so flies still were welcomed making their way in.
Great place with many food and drink options. Great service and vibe, will be back!
On a Friday evening at a quarter past 6:00 pm, I expected the restaurant to be busier. Regardless, Bell Hall provides a great meal at a fair price. They offer a wide selection of quality draft beers that is continuously updated.
It's a great place to get a burger and beer without breaking the bank. They don't seem to draw much of a crowed but their fries are great so who cares?
Always a solid go-to, a favorite for me and my coworkers (especially with so many gluten free options!).
We selected Bell Hall due to its close proximity to special event we had going on that day, and from the ratings in other reviews. I am so glad we did, since everything about the restaurant was wonderful. Both the appetizers and main food we ordered were amazing, the staff was polite and attentive, and the food was very reasonably priced. I would highly recommend Bell Hall to anyone for a special occasion, date night, or everyday dining.
I had their peanut butter/jelly burger last time which was great, so I switched it up and got the malibu shrimp. The shrimp were nice size and the rice was cooked perfectly. Very good flavor and the vegetables were not overcooked. I really liked this dish and would get it again. My wife had the rueben which was good, but not great. There was not much sauerkraut or meat. She said the taste was good but could have used more of everything. Our server was nice, but was non existent at times. In her defense, she had tables at the other end of the restaurant as well as ours so it cannot be blamed all on her. Overall, I like this place and will return.
This is our go-to burger place. Hands down, best burgers with a lot of great combinations. You can add bacon or egg to any burger for minimal cost. Apps are great too but portions on everything are large so sharing is a good option for apps.
Food is always good. The service was mediocre at best. Never took drink orders, didnt check on the meal or drink refills. And it took 40 minutes from the time we ordered to get our burgers.
My friends and I ate hear before a concert. Although it was crowded, the staff members were very pleasant and helpful. The food was delicious and we made it to the concert on time!
I'm going to assume it was just an off night for Bell Hall since the burgers are normally great however myself and another of my party asked for mid rare and received well done.
Pleasant meal. Nothing extraordinary but it was fine.
This is definitely going to be my go to place for a burger! Big quality patty and yummy toppings. The wings are excellent too, crispy on the outside juicy on the inside
Food good & varied. Service poor..enjoyed relaxing dining
First time to Bell Hall, very convenient to shows at Allentown Symphony Hall or PPL Center. GREAT variety of burgers and sandwiches, excellent beer and drink options. I enjoyed the Philly Special (nice twist on a cheesesteak) with sweet potato fries, while my date enjoyed a cheeseburger with honey stung brussels. Service was excellent as was the ambiance. This place is much larger than it appeared, a very deep building, so it was easy to have a conversation. Definitely will add this place to my list of faves!
Thank you for offering not one but two vegan options! (Impossible burger & black bean burger) I was pleasantly surprised at how good the meatless options were considering you have a cow head on your door. My husband and I will definitely be back on our own!
A very good restaurant which I have been to on several occasions for both lunch an dinner. Casual upscale bar like atmosphere, good food (don't expect to go for lobster or Prime Rib) and average pricing for downtown Allentown
Staff was friendly. The place is very sterile feeling. Could have just been a quiet/off night but for 7:30pm on a Saturday it was extremely quiet. The back dining area has no character at all so we asked to be moved to the bar area which was better. The food.. the chicken wings were ok - definitely frozen though. Kids liked the pretzel app. Dinner is where it went sideways though. Burgers were ok at best. Seemed again to be a frozen patty rather than a handmade burger. The chicken sandwich though was the strangest sandwich ive had in some time - it was supposed to be pulled/shredded chicken but it had the texture and flavor of tuna salad. It tasted like a tuna melt... not really what you are looking for in a chicken sandwich. At that point we just wanted to go so we paid and left. I will say that the staff were all very friendly so I wouldn’t place any blame on them but ultimately there was no real reason to want to return to this place. Not trying to be mean but the food was below par at best for the valley (which is not a super high standard to meet)
Food was amazing but service not so much.
Everything was very good. Would love to come back in the summer when the courtyard is open!
Food was good, service was good, being sat outside the kitchen was too loud.
We always try and eat here when we are going to an event at the PPL center. The food and service is always exceptional!
Had a very good meal. I had the Black and Blue burger and it was cooked to perfection. I asked for medium and it was medium....so many places over cook the burger. The blue cheese was a good portion, tangy and delicious and complimented the burger. The burger was served on a beautiful brioche bun. Nice! I got a side of the Honey Kissed Brussels.....OMG....delicious! Carmely roasted heaven...so delicious! My husband had the Phantom burger....also cooked medium. The burger had jalapenos....not just randomly sliced jalapenos but roasted jalapeno steaks... sweet with all the taste and no seeds...nice surprise. The burger also had barbeque aioli with hack cheese. Side of nicely done fries. I was leary abor the place after reading some of the yelp reviews....pleasantly surprised! I must get back here in the summer when the patio is open. Try it!
This was one of the nicest lunches I've had in a while. First, OpenTable allowed us to book an 11:15 a.m. reservation, even though the kitchen doesn't start serving until 12 noon. However, the bartender graciously checked with the kitchen and determined that they would be able to accommodate us. She herself took our orders--as well as making my fabulous espresso martini and brought our food. My husband had one of the delightful beers from the extensive beer list. Two of our party had the fish and chips, which was perfectly portioned and perfectly prepared. One of us had the "chicken sprout" sandwich, which she ordered without the bun. What a delight! Delicately caramelized Brussels sprouts topped a very slightly crispy chicken breast, accompanied by amazing fries (which could have been a salad). All three of us had dessert: two chocolate cheesecake slices and one regular cheesecake slice, all of which were the ideal size and extremely tasty. The speed of the service was perfect, and the ambience reminded me of my favorite Manhattan restaurant, Elmo, which is probably the highest compliment I can pay any place.
I thought the burger could use a little more seasoning - it was a little bland. Our service was a little slow. However, I would definitely give it another shot.
Our waitress made our visit so much fun and the food was amazing!
