I just went there to have a beer as I enjoy Belgian beer. This was the most expensive beer I have ever had. $9 plus tax and tip for a small Leffe, which was advertised as $7 on the board. I will not return

Had a great dinner with my wife. Delicious food and friendly service. Great beers. Recommend the crispy Brussels sprouts. Wonderful! The only downside is a little tight quarters.
