M.T. Bellies Tap & Grill – Pride for its Welland roots and appreciation for the supportive city

Released: Wednesday, December 8, 2021

Welland, ON – "Spotlight On" looks into Welland's businesses, providing a glimpse into what makes them a staple within the community. This month's Spotlight is on MT Bellies Tap & Grill.

With a clever name, inviting atmosphere, and diverse menu, M.T. Bellies has welcomed guests and satisfied diners with big food and big fun since 1993.

John and Rebecca Clark are the husband-and-wife team who recognized Welland’s need for a casual dining establishment, developing the family-friendly M.T. Bellies brand. Through several remodels and renovations, Rebecca is instrumental in the unique design and character of the restaurant, always preserving a sense of warmth, comfort and fun that visitors enjoy. Staying on top of consumer trends and tastes, John and the team continue to create delectable menu options from traditional pub fare to signature dishes and drinks.

In addition to a welcoming and lively customer service experience, M.T. Bellies offers:

  • Seasonal activities and events
  • Online ordering
  • Group catering for meetings and special functions


As a hospitality business during a pandemic, M.T. Bellies has navigated challenges and evolving protocols to remain open. Staff realize this would not be possible without ongoing local support and are beyond grateful for the patronage.

With great pride for its Welland roots and sincere appreciation for the supportive city in which they operate, M.T. Bellies has long practiced a mandate of giving back to the community. Sponsoring athletics and sports teams, contributing to local charities and organizations, and hosting special fundraising events, John, Rebecca and staff are dedicated and passionate about generosity and supporting local.

In addition to the restaurant’s charitable efforts, John also serves as Chair of the North Welland Business Improvement Area, which strives to beautify and promote a vibrant mix of businesses in that corridor of the city.

After nearly 30 years in business, we look forward to many more years of fun, food and proactive community involvement served up by M.T. Bellies.
