Average meal presentation and food and kinda overrated. nice beer selection but they were out of stock on several. waiter was clueless although he WAS a trainee. helps to be a little beer/wine snob.

Me and my fiancé have been to the string bean a few times and enjoy going. The food is great and the beer and wine are always good.

We had an awesome experience at The String Bean! They get busy fast and we learned on our second visit they do take reservations! Inside seating is limited, just to square footage, but outside there's lots of seating. They have an extensive beer and wine menu. Lots of local choices in beer. The menu has just about anything for anyone.... More

Great food and fun atmosphere. Highly recommend. If you have to wait for a table you can visit the bar around the corner for great craft brews. Leave your number and they will call you when your table is ready.

The burgers at The String Bean are absolutely delicious! I had the Cowpig Burger! It was cooked just right!

My wife and I visited this week and were pleasantly surprised. The food was super good, we started with the eggplant fries which were awesome. I got the ribeye and scallops, the steak was good but the scallops were outstanding. My wife got the Ruben and I have to say it is one of the best we had. Good service... More

stopped by to enjoy lunch outside. I had the Pear & Gorginzola salad with grilled chicken and my companions both had the Reuben with sweet potatoes fries. Salad was large, fresh and very tasty. The sandwiches were filling, juicy and the pastrami melted in your mouth. A side order of fruit was delightful. Service was prompt and we will return.

I am a local, eat at the SB quite a bit. Nice servers, good folks and pretty well rounded menu. I recommend the BBQ egg roll appetizers and their chicken salad is very good, too. Nice patio for dining outside in good weather.
