Great little find - good atmosphere and friendly staff. Nice choice of veggie options on the menu and staff recommended the best beers for our food choices. Reasonably priced too! Really enjoyed!

Had the Flemish stew, very tender with a good flavor. Fries were pretty tasteless. After ordering I noticed most people are having burgers...so that must be the hot item here. Picked the restaurant as it had the best ratings close to the Brussels Beer Project.

The food and (of course) the beer I had here were delicious. I went on a Saturday night without a reservation and was seated immediately and served promptly after I finished reading the menu. I had the goat cheese salad and it was unspeakably delcious....More
