    One of the best Belgian beer bars in the country. Food has always been very good. Mussels rival what you will find in Brussels

    Sit at the back bar if it's too crowded in the front. Peruse the beer bible. Drink a pint of something delicious.

    Thai curry mussels are amazing, and the serving is HUGE, so filling. Fries are the best. Hill Farmstead Everett porter is awesome - very malty, excellent porter. Great service. I love this place.

    Good pulled pork sandwich. My friend's seitan is pretty good too. For chocolate stout lovers, I recommend Kasteel Barista Chocolate Quad or Brouwerij De Molen Cease & Desist :)

    Get their eponymous Flemish sour, especially if you've yet to be won over by the sour beer category.

    Some of the best burgers and beers in town. Has that small local feel to it of you are trying to avoid all the tourist bars. It's a must place to check out.
