    The mussels are great, but make sure to pair it with a great beer--skip the wine

    Beer guy was awesome, definitely come here and let him pick you out new beers to try. Overpriced bad food. Steak frites was awful - chewy, grainy fatty and nasty. Seafood tower was way overpriced.

    As a Belgian I am not at all proud of this place ...Cuisine is not authentic and the owner is so full of himself

    Ok the mussels are good and so are the other dishes we tried. Real Belgians would definitely miss grey shrimps .. Oh and where are the excellent Belgian wines : not one on the winelist :(

    Okay—we admit it, we would come here solely for the frites. But we're also partial to heartier choices (crispy duck confit, anyone?) on the extensive menu, which is why we never get bored by Beck. Read more

    Have a Straffe Hendrik. This is the only US location I've found it. Before visiting here, the only other place I'd had one was in its founding city, Brugge in Belgium. Get it on draft or in a bottle.
