After 5 years of living in South Bend, I finally made it up to Bell's. I'm very glad I did. They had an excellent selection of beers on tap (though, sadly, they were out of their Hopslam that day). I liked the atmosphere a lot also - a great place to sit and hang out with your friends. And they have checkers and chess boards on the tables, so you are expcected to spend time there and enjoy the beer and the atmosphere. It has a high ceiling and a stage near the window, which I assume makes for great acoustics when a band is playing live. Unfortunately there was no live music the day I was there. Bell's knows they're known for their beer and not their food, so not too much effort is put into the menu or service by comparison. Food is available at a window and it's serve- yourself, and typical sandwich brewery-fare. It's the beer that's important, and that's ok - they make some fine brews.
