Many restaurants derive their name from the town in which they reside. Perhaps only one town is named after a restaurant. The Blue Bell Inn opened in 1743 and the area once known as “Pigeontown” changed its name to Blue Bell due to the restaurant’s popularity.

275 years later, the Blue Bell Inn serves up history and modern American fare highlighted by excellent cuts of meats, fresh seafood, and a raw bar. They get all their fish fresh daily and work directly with farmers to acquire oysters.

Blue Bell Inn Lobster

The most popular menu items include: lobster roll, oysters, filet mignon, margarita flatbread, seafood wedge salad, and seafood pasta.

The Blue Bell Inn underwent a multimillion-dollar renovation five years ago and offers various types of atmospheres for many occasions. There is a lively bar scene and outdoor patio complete with a fire pit and water features.

New location, same top-notch, authentic Mexican cuisine and tequila bar.

After the construction of a new shopping center at the junction of U.S. Route 202 and Route 73, El Sarape moved into a brand-new spot in 2017.

Upscale authenticity is evident at El Sarape, which has been a local favorite in Blue Bell for 18 years. The consistent quality of the food and the service is a point of pride for owner, Louis Marin.

“Our staff and food is known to customers,” said Marin. “We are part of the community. We belong to them.”

Marin, a native of Mexico, stays true to his roots by using his mother’s recipes with a modern twist.

El Sarape Seafood Tacos

Top dishes include: red snapper (a whole fish cooked in garlic sauce filled with a seafood mix) filet Toluca (center cut filet mignon), mole rojo (chicken with mild mole sauce, made of chocolate, nuts, herbs, plantains, and peppers), and enchiladas.
