I cut my teeth here in the mid 90's. After working for the Grand Rapids Brewing Co I fell in love with the micro brews. Luckily I knew some people that worked in the Eccentric Cafe and I got beers quicker than the unlucky bastards that had to seemingly wait in line for a refill. The ambiance of the cafe has changed a lot over the years. No more fish tank or ping pong. The beer remains fresh and as awesome as the first time I had it though! I reach for Bell's beer first, out of any in a cooler full of exciting micros.

Atmosphere: awesome places, very eccentric as expected by the name. nice laid back feeling. love the beer garden and outdoor area. haven't ever seen it to busy.

Quality: the quality of the beers they bottle is hard to beat. add that to the even higher quality experimentals and pub exclusives and its unbeatable

Service: it is go up to the bar service but i have never had a problem. when there is a long line you can usually catch a server at the side and skip the line

selection: all beer are quality. i could go here every night and order 2 or 3 and never get sick of what they have on tap. they really but some good stuff up there

food: simple but delicious. i have had the jambalya and pulled pork sandwiches. both were great

Overall: Bell's is easy one of my favorite places to drink. and possibly my favorite. I wouldn't change a single thing about the place
