Visited Bellwoods on a busy June Saturday. It's packed and noisy, and our party of two was seated upstairs in a narrow seating section relatively quickly. The beer was great, service was friendly, and the food was really good. A standout the day we were there was the asparagus - but the tuna, and the fries, were also good. (324 characters)

Went to get some bottles but had to stay for 1!!

VERY expensive. Plain and simple.

Excellent selection. Had a Bring Out Your Dead. $22.00 for a 500ml bottle. Again VERY expensive.
Would be a stretch at $10.00 at the bottle shop but would buy a few for the cellar.

Did not try and of the food but what came out of the kitchen looked very attractive.

Looking forward to going back but I better save up as the pricing is HIGH.

Enjoy (439 characters)

Visited only the bottle shop, they had 3 or 4 beers available for purchase, mostly session ales. Nice, clean and friendly. The bar looked awesome and hope to come back to enjoy some beers on site. (196 characters)

Went here last night...

Walking up, really cool looking place, good outside seating area. During busy time they have you wait in line just to get to the host, who is also working as a server, so we waited ten minutes until we even knew what the deal was. You're also not allowed to even go to the bar as you wait. Once we got approached the hostess was really nice and got us seated at the bar within five minutes.

Once at the bar, really cool inside area, also has an upstairs and is all in viewing area of the brewery which looks to be a 10bbl system. On tap is mostly house beers, I had a the Witch IPA and the Brett american Pale Ale, both good. Buddy had a the Grizzly Brown and Stout, both good. We ordered the meat plate which was great. Ordered the buffalo chicken sausage, which was a little small but very good and spicy. After those two plates we ordered the flat iron steak, which took over 25 minutes to cook and we eventually cancelled it. That's when the waitress started giving us some lip.

Overall, I'd go back and try again on a less busy night. Place stays open till midnight every day.

SIDE NOTE: Good bottle selection, a lot of belgians, some sours, some saisons. Bottle Shop is cool too. (1,216 characters)

Tried samples of all of the Bellwood's beers and though there were a few that were quite good on the whole they were under attenuated, muddled, and dull. Some were not good at all. The bottle list was not bad and it is nice to have Westie 12 on the list. The great variety of beers they make seems to have prevented them thus far from taking the time to iterate and master any one beer in particular. Hopefully that will change in the future.

The place itself is insanely noisy, crowded and unpleasant. (504 characters)
