Blue Bell Inn

In April 2013, after changing ownership, Blue Bell Inn closed its doors and underwent extensive renovation and redesign for over a year. In an effort to preserve historical significance, various aspects of the Inn were kept intact and enhanced through thoughtful restoration. An exposed rock wall from the original 18th century edifice was refurbished and is a focal point in the main dining room. Antique glass and old-fashioned bottles reclaimed during construction were repurposed into striking pieces of art throughout the restaurant. A more spacious floor plan was developed and quintessential indoor-outdoor spaces now encourage seasonal dining. New materials such as Italian porcelain tile, black marble and solid white oak were introduced to create a unique rustic-meets-modern ambiance. Today, Blue Bell Inn serves as a stunning architectural melange spanning three centuries.

We were excited to take our friends from Texas to this restaurant. Damn, we were disappointed. First, I must admit the staff was very efficient and friendly. However, the food was below average, expensive and very small portions. There were 3 orders of the catch of the day. Pathetic amount. We thought the catch was sea bass, but turned out to be minnows. I ordered the lamb for 36 bucks. 4 small slices, 9 dollars a slice. The big problem I had was I know that it was not lamb. The place was overrun with people. I believe they ran out of lamb and substituted steak. I would have raised a big stink but we were with friends from Texas so I let it pass. On top of that, I kid you not when the “lamb” was like chewing on my sneakers. My advice, go 3 miles away into downtown Ambler. Many great places to eat at a more reasonable price. Never again.

This bakery has the best tomato pie and so many other types of breads. Tomato pie sauce was just sweet enough. Prices are reasonable. They also offer sandwiches and other Italian products.

I've enjoyed Via Veneto Pizza for years. I agree they do an excellent Sicilian pizza, but don't limit yourself. They have an awesome menu and its good food. If you go on a Friday or Saturday night I'd recommend take out because its crowed. This place is worth a visit.

Blue Fin

Reviewed By Bruce W

I have been going to Bluefin for over a decade. I have watched the place grow from a small stripmall establishment with a huge commitment to procuring the highest quality product (from NYC at least twice a week) to the polished establishment it has now become in East Norriton. The great thing in this evolution is that Yueng, the owner, has kept his eye fixed on quality throughout this growth process. The food? Everything is really good.....so be adventurous......don't stick with the same old stuff that you have ordered forever when going out for sushi. Ask their wait staff.....they are also excellent. Another tip......don't miss the appetizers! Try the "Tuna Sundae" or the "Crazy Bowl" and you'll immediately see what I mean. For the main course, my personal preference is sashimi....but really everything is great....whether you prefer sushi, rolls, sashimi or even tempura. Bottom line....to my knowledge, this is the best sushi spot in the entire Philadelphia area.....bar none!

Redstone American Grill

Reviewed By David S - Exton, Pennsylvania

Very expensive, lunch entrees range from $15 to $28, but it's well worth it. Cornbread was wonderful, very sweet and fluffy. The flatbread with rotisserie chicken, tomato, cheese, and pesto was so full of flavor. And the sea bass tacos with a lime sauce and guacamole was absolutely delightful. Tender chunks of fish with a crispy outside. Wonderful flavor and just the right amount of heat. Service was great, too.

Lou's Sandwich Shop

Reviewed By Kat&John - Bainbridge Island WA

Sat at the counter and within 5 minutes became part of several friendly conversations with the other patrons and staff.

Cheese steak was the best I've had. There should be a religion devoted to the red pepper relish. So good!

Don't be discouraged by the street parking. There are spots behind the building. Can't wait to come back.

Pho Thai Nam

Reviewed By Tom M - Dallas, Pennsylvania, United States

GF and I were here recently for dinner. The first thing that stood out was that it was very nicely decorated and the atmosphere was very comfortable. The restaurant was busy but the service was not hectic. We went very traditional by ordering the Vietnamese Spring Rolls for an appetizer. GF had one of the Pho's (can't remember which) and I had the Grilled Pork Vermicelli. The spring rolls were very good, as were the dipping sauces. Both our dishes were excellent and I would def order either one of them again. The portions were very large (as per typical for these type of dishes) and the prices were very reasonable. This is a BYOB but we did not bring anything so do not know if they charge for that service. Really great dinner and will be back.

Minado Japanese Seafood Buffet Restaurant

Reviewed By John B - Norristown, Pennsylvania

I love this restaurant. My girlfriend and I, in fact, have made it our place because we go here quite a bit. The food is good although I will be honest in saying the chicken teriyaki has been dry at times, but the sushi is always good. I also like the selection of fresh fruit. It's also a plus that I don't feel heavy leaving here unlike other buffets I've had. It is pricey, however, but worth it.
