About Us

The seeds of The String Bean date back to growing up on a small farm in north Georgia where my family had a large garden and canned its own vegetables.

I can recall sitting under a tree and stringing beans for hours a day, a task many would see as a lot of work. For us it was a great time to be together, to sit, laugh and talk.

From my teens through college, I took many jobs in the restaurant trade and built upon a love of food and making interesting dishes. In 2007, my wife and I fulfilled long held dreams and opened The String Bean, a place where people could enjoy great food in a warm and engaging atmosphere.

Downtown Belmont provided the personality we were looking for in a setting for our business, and we are thankful for the support we have received from the community and our many patrons who have become friends.

Our menu includes classic favorites prepared with a fresh twist and daily specials. We take great pride in the quality of our produce, breads, meats, seafood and dessert items, and we are thankful for the many local resources that we can draw from in this area.

To us, The String Bean is more than a restaurant. It is a place where we work to build relationships and to serve dishes that we hope bring customers back time and time again.

Thanks for your support of The String Bean. We hope to see you soon.




My staff and I invite you to visit us at here at The String Bean and to enjoy one of our special dishes and the charm and character of the Belmont community that is our home.
