Belgian & other craft beers plus mussels & hearty bar fare in a quirky space with outside seating.- Google
"Mussels wre good and large selection of beers from the world."
"I'm hard-pressed to find a better Belgian beer selection anywhere."

I gave it a four because of thier mussles and thier fritches best around they way they make them in belgium . But i was dissapointed with thier burger i ordered a well done burger and the burger i got looked to me the cooked seared it on the top and didnt even bother to check if it was cooked inside i did eat some of it cause i was hungry and it was good but it was still very pink for me the server was nice and comped the burger but i was a bit worried about getting sick in the morning i was fine tho . its a good place if you can find parking if your driving or dont mind walking a few blocks . all in all a good place.

We enjoy the food and decor. I'm hard-pressed to find a better Belgian beer selection anywhere. My wife comes for the mussels.

Nice tap selection, amazing bottle selection, pleasant frites. I'm curious to try the vegetarian chicken wings.

Beware of the takeout! I ordered the seitan tacos and the taco shells were completely burnt/not edible. I've eaten in the restaurant a bunch and had a much better experience. It is pricy though.

Impeccable beer selection, draft and bottles. Some staff is a bit awkward, but still knowledgeable and friendly. Good atmosphere.

About 1/2 of the tap list was Belgian beer. The other beers ranged from a Danish abbey-style to an American watermelon wheat. We glanced at the bottle list, but didn't order anything from it since the taps suited us fine. We noshed on some fries while waiting for a friend to arrive for dinner. The fries are served with a bourbon mayo and optional smoked ketchup. I loved both dips. My guess is that they use Rauchbier to make the ketchup. So, it certainly isn't for everyone. I ordered the Delvaux burger (topped with beer brined cheese & radish sprouts) and my husband had the stout & coffee shredded brisket sandwich. Although my burger was pretty good, he definitely had the superior sandwich. I really loved the cinnamon caramel sauce for the homemade doughnuts.
