Serving Pints and plates
Belle’s Kitchen is located in the Station 101 building along with The Dapper House, Forever Young Salon, and Hidden Key Brewing Co.
Our Story began on a family vacation in Asheville, North Carolina. Yes, at the time, Asheville was known as the “Beer Capital” because it had the most breweries per capita of any US city. Nick, Matt, Megan, Andrea, Kevin, Annette, Patty, and Bob had a wonderful vacation - 3 days in the city and 3 days in the mountains with a Mama Bear and three cubs.
Like many of you, we LOVE breweries. We love the beer - and the relaxing atmosphere. It invites us to sit back, enjoy good company, and maybe play a game or two. This was true before Isabelle and Brooks - and is still true when the brewery is family-friendly.
While on that vacation, Annette encouraged Nick, Matt, and Kevin to check out the cool barbershop. We walked by several times, and it said “Beer” and “Hot Towel Shave,” and there was a pool table visible from the window. It didn’t take much to convince them to stop by and check it out.
That was the beginning of The Dapper House. So when Nick was looking for a new building, we knew it was time to take the next step - bring the Asheville brewery vibe to our local community to join The Dapper House. The former High Line Restaurant was the perfect location in the city, but feel like you were traveling. Between the railroad tracks and the beautiful building and grounds, we knew we could create a welcoming place for family and friends to come, relax, and take a mini-vacation right here in Greencastle, Pennsylvania.
We teamed up with Hidden Key Brewing Co. to bring you delicious beer to pair with our southern infused cuisine and become Greencastle’s FIRST brewery with great food as a place to bring family and friends for a relaxing lunch, dinner, or Sunday brunch.
We invite you to come, sit back, enjoy good company, flavorful food and play a game or two.
MEET OUR BELLE'S KITCHEN FAMILY
KEVIN & ANNETTE SEARFOSS
We moved to Shippensburg in 1998 when Kevin retired from the Navy, and now live in Chambersburg. Both of us have enjoyed multiple restaurant and bar jobs over the years. We love to prepare and share great food and delicious drinks with family and friends.
NICK, MEGAN, ISABELLE & BROOKS SEARFOSS
Nick opened The Dapper House Barbershop in 2018 after finally finding his passion in not only barbering, but entrepreneurship and community involvement. He purchased the current Dapper House location in October 2021, with the dream of building a future staple of the community with his family and Hidden Key Brewing Company. Megan loves her hometown of Greencastle and is the reason we are all here! (That and it’s a beautiful corner of the world, of course). Megan is a teacher and keeps us all planning for the next trip, event or holiday well in advance. She has a shirt that says, “Chaos Coordinator” and she earned the title! Isabelle Rae was born in 2016 and immediately stole our hearts. Her grandparents cared for her after Megan returned to work - Annette (Gigi), Kevin (Papa), and Megan’s Mom, Patty Rush (Nanna) shared the days while Nick and Megan worked to allow each of us to enjoy those precious early years. Isabelle loves to plan parties, bake desserts, and generally help out with whatever we are doing. Brooks Leland was born in 2020. He is Nick in so many ways - curious and easy going. We are all watching to see how he grows and develops into his own person. He enjoys his family so much, including his Papa and Pap, and his little cousin Isla Rush.
MATT & ANDREA SEARFOSS
Matt followed in his Dad and Searfoss family footsteps to serve our country in the US Navy. He is a hot wing connoisseur and runs so that he can enjoy a good IPA afterwards. Currently in Florida, where the gator tail and grits are on every menu, he is excited to bring his taste of the south to Greencastle. Andrea and Matt instantly fell in love when they met at a campground in Florida. Born in Illinois but raised on the beaches of Daytona, she knows the southern lifestyle like none other. She quickly became a member of the Searfoss family, and has always wanted to own and operate a business like Belle's Kitchen. (Yes, we are bribing Andrea to leave the warm Florida weather and move to cold Pennsylvania weather).
