Rude service, yet decided to see if the food would make up for it. That was a huge mistake. We should have walked out before placing orders (yes, the rude service began ten minutes after we arrived). I ordered the ribs, and have to say

I went to the New Belmont tonight to celebrate a friend's birthday. At 1:45 the bartender came around collecting everyone's drinks, saying it was 2:00. I said "It's not 2:00." She said condescendingly, "Yes it is." I checked my watch,

The place didn?t seem very family friendly but, we stayed to see if perhaps the cuisine could make up for the lack of warmth. Big mistake! We tried the St Louis Ribs, they were very hard like jerky, the fries were half cooked and soggy and the collard greens were not seasoned. The service was not up to par either, our waiter checked on us one time; oh yeah that was to give us the bill. Never said anything about the specials (we read that on the wall after we had already ordered) I requested straws for the drinks and he brought them out without any wrappers (his hands touching our straws) and just propped them in our drinks. I purchased the Bahama mama wings, they were very good, hot off the grill and very tasty, we waited for some time to receive our plates for the wings which were sitting in a basket, my wife finally had enough and went up to request plates. I thought I was on a hidden camera show. Anyway, Don?t waste your time with this one! .

My husband, friends, and I have dined at the New Belmont several times, and service has always been a issue for us; however, the food was always outstanding! Unfortunately, we went there this evening, it had been a while since we have dined at this restaurant, and not only had the service been extremely terrible, the food was as well! I was completly shocked!! A few months had passed since we had been there last, and I expected the service to be terrible, but the food was amazing! Any problems we had with our food or service was handled by a young woman whom looked to be kitchen staff; however, this time, when my NY Strip, which I had asked to be prepared mid-rare, and was presented to me mid-well, with a waitress whom obviously had a bad attitude, I asked for the female I had once known to take care of problems like this, the waitress told me that she had no idea what I was talking about, and that the kitchen staff was preparing a new steak for me, which was over-cooked again! I will never dine at the New Belmont ever again, and I will recommend that others do not dine there as well!

I had the unfortunate experience of trying out this place for brunch. I knew this was not going to be on top on my list when I was told that the place was "out of bloody mary's". I thought this was a brunch staple. I had a very greasy meal -- it was one of the specials of the day. The boneless fried chicken was smothered with some kind of sausage sauce. The side dish of fried green tomatoes was dripping in oil. And the added scrammbled eggs was served cold. I thought of rescuing this horrible experiencing by ordering a glass of champagne. Alas, this too, was bad! Not one tiny bubble and served in room temperature. Never again.

They take what's fresh and make it part of their menu. The downstairs restaurant is very pleasant--I've taken many friends there for dinner and brunch. They put interesting twists on food--it really tantalizes your palate. The upstair bar is fun, and they often have live entertainment of great diversity. I've enjoyed all my visits there. You can get anything on their restaurant menu in the upstairs bar, until abou 10 PM. Then they have bar food, quite good.

Pros: Ghent location makes parking easy

Cons: Really noisy in the bar when the band is crankin'

The New Belmont is managed and/or run by the same people who manage and/or run Cogans, but my experiences there have been worlds apart. (See my review of Cogans for more info). The New Belmont has a really nice restaurant downstairs with a great wine list, both of which can get pricey. Upstairs is a bar with a pool table, a great deck, and dart boards. They have an awesome beer selection, and really good bar food. The upstairs bar is one of my favorite places to hang out.

PROS: come as you are - dressed to the nines for dinner, or hang out upstairs
CONS: can get pricey in the restaurant

This is a neat place to hang out and have some drinks and listen to the ocassional live act up-stairs.
I can't speak for the food downstairs but the menu up-stairs was not your normal bar food. They tended to take normal, everyday food and ruin it by adding classy flares. I'm a fan of electic food, but this was just not good at all. The service was good and the atmosphere was great. I love the place except for the food.
