The food was okay, typical pub food, the tea is not very good. Our waitress was friendly and quick to come back to our table to refill our drinks. They have a great outdoor area with a bar and tables. I would only bring kids for lunch, or an early dinner, becomes more of a bar crowd later.

I am a little biased in favor of this place. My wife and I have been coming here since it opened. Tonight we had a great waiter who understood that we wanted to relax and not get rushed through our meal. We got one appetizer and two mains d a dessert. One order was a little over cooked but everything... More

We go here every year for our Sunday NFL fix after golf. For the most part pub food. Do offer ribs as well. Just average food but good ambiance for games.

This is a great place to hang out at the bar for lunch or dinner. Their back area has a big outdoor movie screen. The bar has our favorite mega touch screen game. The food was good. We recommend it.

We really hate places that are all lit up and you have spotlights right in your eyes. It's dark and comfortable inside just the way we like it. Our server, Lancelin, was very attentive and helpful. We started out with poppers and they were very good (they even tasted like they were fresh and not frozen but I'm not sure... More

I have been to this tavern for the solitary purpose of eating their delicious food. I don't even drink alcohol. However, I noticed they have a very nice selection of spirits to please anyone. It is always a pleasure to visit this tavern restaurant in quaint, historic downtown. The service is perfect and the atmosphere just puts me in a... More

Stopped in here for lunch with my family. I had the crab cake sandwich with fries which was delicious. Sandwich was loaded with large crab cake, well seasoned with great sauce. Lemonade was pretty average however, didn't taste fresh squeezed. Nice ambiance and very good service.

Casual and comfortable place with multiple TV s for sports. My fish tacos were very good, fish fried just right. The side of fried pickles were also really good. I didn't like my wife's crab cake sandwich as the crab cake was overpowered by the herbs. Prices were on the high side of reasonable.

Description
The Bell Tree Tavern is a locally owned Restaurant with a full service bar and great outside patio and bar. Located in the center of downtown Southern Pines it features a gorgeous outdoor patio and bar and has 10 large screen TV's for the avid sports fan. If sports is your passion join us for Soccer, College Basketball, College Football and the NFL featuring "the Sunday Ticket". The menu consists of many items made in house from our famous smoked ribs to the honey bourbon shrimp salad. Many come specifically for our signature Buffalo and Lamb Burgers, while others choose the Smoked Beef Brisket or the Whole Smoked Chicken. We boast the "BEST" wings in town but we have something for everyone from children to adult. A great place to come late night as well featuring 20 draft beer selections focusing on NC craft brews to some of the best small craft breweries in the country. Give us a try and I think you will feel right at home with the locals who frequent this downtown staple.
