Happy to see you again: Bell’s Eccentric Café COVID-19 Operating Guidelines

Updated May 2, 2021:

We are happy to share that starting on Wednesday, May 5th we will be back open for indoor dining. With case counts dropping over the past few weeks in Michigan, as well as our staff having the opportunity to be vaccinated, we are excited to re-open for indoor dining. As we've said before, the health and safety of our team members, our guests, and our community will always be our number one priority. 

Updated April 9, 2021:

Following comments from Governor Whitmer regarding the rise of COVID-19 cases in Michigan, we are following her recommendation to suspend indoor dining for at least the next two weeks. The Eccentric Café will continue to serve beer and food outside in the Beer Garden, and we will reevaluate opening indoor dining as conditions improve across the state. The health and safety of our team members, our guests, and our community as a whole remains our number one priority, and we appreciate your continued support and flexibility as we navigate these ever-changing conditions. The General Store’s hours will remain the same, and as always, beer and to-go food can be ordered online through our curbside pickup process.

Updated March 1, 2021: 

Thank you for being patient with us as we have recently worked on redoing our indoor dining space in order to open back up safely! Inside you will see tables have been safely separated six feet apart - for the safety of our staff and customers, please do not move tables and/or chairs around inside the pub or outdoor in the garden and patio. Please note that you are more than welcome to choose to sit indoor or outdoor in our Beer Garden and Patio. As always, you can choose to order to-go beer and food through curbside pickup! Safety is more important than anything for us, so please take some time to read about our updated guidelines below.

We are proud to be approved as a Michigan Covid-19 Safer Dining Participant through the Michigan Department of Labor & Economic Opportunity.
