    The most unpretentious beer bar in the city, and definitely the best bar in North Beach

    Great mussels, great fries, epic beer list. Perfect antidote to a foggy day/night in SF.

    Fantastic Belgian-inspired beer bar with decent draft selection (15 beers) and an amazing bottle list. (I had a bottle of Cantillon Vigneronne.) Quality food, but the menu is limited. Not cheap though

    Michael knows everything about beer and especially the Belgian ones. He has more than 500 of them and will gladly help you get the perfect beer for your taste. MUST GO TO IF YOU LIKE BEER!

    Prepare yourself for some really, seriously sketchy service, but their beer selection is amazing (don't like hops? Try the Bavik!), and their fries are excellent especially given the range of sauces!

    Great beer selection and a super friendly staff that helps you not feel like an idiot when you're ordering from a seemingly endless list of beers that you can't pronounce. Trust their recommendation!

    Never complained about a restaurant publicly in my life. Drink order takes 30mins? I understand, they're busy. However, the food shot scalding hot grease on my face/hands. Severe pain-fuck this place

    Get the worlds most refreshing beer - Rodenbach classic. And then try every other beer on tap.

    Ask the bartender what's behind the secret passage behind the bar. It's not just an ordinary bookshelf.

    Looking in from the street, this place doesn't look like much more than a restaurant, but go in & downstairs & you will find the bar where everyone is hanging out.

    Terrible place to eat, this it totally no Belgian food or service. Send your chef to Belgium first before you let him cook Belgian food! French fries are no appetizers!

    I've never eaten here, but the cellar bar is a great place to grab a belgian ale in SF. Cell phone reception is crap down there, but hey i think that's a good thing.

    If you're whining abort price, look at the ABV and size. Then come during happy hour to fey $1 off. You can end up with a 330cl that's 8% and only $3. Worth two beers anywhere else and way tastier.

    The fries are decent, but you're there for the beer. I'm a fan of the allagash on tap, but there's plenty of variety (250+ bottled plus many on tap).
