Busy little place right in downtown Belmont. Inside can get a little cramped & noisy, but they have a good-sized outdoor patio. We have been here a good number of times and the food is always good. Anything from burgers and sandwiches to full entrees....More

Quick service is the only thing lacking at this restaurant. Food is always ecclectic and tasty, but sometimes the staff is overwhelmed with the traffic. Unique beer and wine selection, plus a butcherl/deli.

Food was great. Service was okay. You can eat inside or outside. We choose inside. They have all name brands of beer or wine. Easy access to get in and out of the parking lot.

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.
