If you love southern cooking then look no further. Our family of 8 just dined here today. The quality of the food was just like Grandma use to make. The variety included fried chicken, baked chicken, rice, gravy, peas, dumplings, sweet potato casserole, Mac/cheese, cornbread dressing, yams, and about 5-6 other items. Oh and about 5-7 types of desserts. The... More

The fine folks at Hennington chiropractic offered to take us to lunch at one of their favorite places after a commercial shoot. So we were thrilled to finally get to dine at the Dinner Bell. This place has so much history and ambiance. Each room in this old house has a big dining table with Lazy Susan's filled with home... More

I get back into town from working, the question is, what day do you want Dinner Bell ! Every time we go, Fried chicken to perfection. They serve a squash that is second to none. I've been a customer for over 20 years. My wife and I eat for $27 , that's for two and includes tea and tax !... More

Being from McComb, I always return to the Dinner Bell when I'm home. The staff are super friendly and the soul food is awesome. I always seem to sit next to good folks like when I was younger around the dinner table. This place is like home, and the owners are super nice people. Quality food in a relaxed environment....

All the food is placed on this large round table and you serve yourself. The table has a large lazy Susan so you can easily reach any dish. Also the tables seat several people so everyone gets to socialize. The food is Cajun cooking at it's best.

The Food Is Wonderful....As Close To My Mother And Grandmothers As I've Ever Tasted. They're Known For Their Fried Eggplant But, It's Hard To Truly Pick A Favorite. If You Are In The Area It's A "Must" Do. I Travel A Good Bit, When I Say I'm From McComb........I Always Hear The Same Thing, Oh, That's Where THE DINNER BELL... More

Round table southern food at its best! The fried chicken and the eggplant are the best. Wish they had more deserts, but overall I love eating lunch here.

So glad you enjoyed it! I'm not sure what day you were here, but Sunday is the day for desserts. In addition to our delicious banana pudding, we have homemade cakes and pies. Hope to see you again! More
