    Brussels Bistro is the kind of place where you can linger, talk with the people at the next table, and then find your already-gorged self ordering dessert. Read more

    Half a pot of mussels with fries is the best lunch value. The bread is fantastic. You'll be dipping it in the broth.

    Hublon Chouffe is not to be missed.

    Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday are all you can eat mussels nights. For $26 you can have a glass of amazing Belgian beer and a variety of mussels including Curry and Grain Mustard. Love this place.

    Hangar steak is a better bet than the under-seasoned burger. Fries are good but nothing special & they're not made in-house. Great beer selection & nice ambiance, though.

    The waiter was great, however, the floors were sticky and the food was not as good as I expected. The hamburger I ordered was dry and tasteless, but the desserts were absolutely fantastic.

    Pork shank is the best entree in the menu! Falls right off the bone.

    Authentic bartenders who know their beers. You can find some of the world's best beers here, on tap and in bottles. Definitely worth a stop!

    Soup de poisson (fish soup) is better than last one I had in St-Remy. Dog-friendly patio is bonus.

    Mussels were great...garlic wine sauce creates a nice broth. Mushroom Soup was even comes with a nice flaky bread cap.

    George Haynes · March 10, 2012
  • Henrik J.

    During most week days they have unlimited mussels that are amazing. Order the small pot so you can try all of them.

    The duck was awesome but if you get all-you-can eat mussels (only Mon-Wed) order the small serving so you can try all the sauces.

    Definitely order something on tap or a big bottle of Delerium Tremens to share with a friend. Order the mussels appetizer as your meal as the entree version is too big.
