Bacon and blue cheese mussels. Just....... Do it. And an extra order of bread. 😍
Husband is 41, I just turned 39 yesterday and they didn't serve us alcohol because we only had our Turkish ID's on us. Well at least we still don't look over 21! A big yay for it :)
Mussels & frites are the real deal here
Some of the best mussels I have ever had. Mussels in a Belgian beer, caramelized onions, duck fat sauce equals perfection.
Always great service and awesome mussels.
Great bar for pre dinner drinks
Come here and hang out with Michael, DC's most entertaining Irish bartender.
The beer cooked mussels are great. This is not an American restaurant but a Belgian one with Belgian style beer.
I love going during lunch. Mussels, frites, and bread all for $10!! Can't beat that!
acid lactic beer!!!!
Great bar! Mussels in cast iron pots are outrageous; wide variety, cheap prices. Great Belgian beer selection
Crazy crowded during their 1/2 off mussels happy hour, but you can RSVP with opentable and guarantee a table that way!
Loved everything about this place! Great mussels, great drinks and atmosphere!!!!
The Spicy Italian Sandwich with peppers and onions is pretty damn good!
I think my "medium well" over-stuffed burger would have been good, but it came out black as a crow's tail on the outside and red on the inside! 😒
WiFi password as of 12/21/13: Musselbar
Great food, great beer, not crowded.
First of all, it's not an "American Restaurant", it's a 100% Belgian place. And secondly, this place is so good I didn't even want to jinx it by leaving this tip.
Crowded, loud but really great mussel and frites selection. And of course wonderful range of Belgian drafts.
Delicious liter beers. Mussels are good, too.
Get the Mussels St. Arnolds ... Best Ive ever had!
Great selection of Belgian & German beers on draught.
Very crowded after 7pm make reservations to ensure table if eating, gets loud, very small/dark, but food beer service good. If you don't like Trappist beer or mussels u might not appreciate it
Say hi to Peter. He'll take good care of you
Most opt for the mussels, but the chicken sandwich with rosemary mayo is outstanding if you're not feeling like seafood.
Outrageously bad service
Chipotle mussels are great if you like a little spice.
house mussels in a beer (I think bacon?), caramelized shallots and duck fat sauce?! Fantastic
Always ask what their specials are for the day. Normally their mussels special is only $10 instead of $12. Just as delicious and big enough portion for lunch :)
Order one of the many Belgian drafts. Excellent selection.
Must get the duck fat mussels! $9 (half price) m-f 3:30-6:30
Mussels are the best I ever had. Ask for more bread. Owners seem like good people.
Mussels with Spicy Italian Sausage, Peppers, Onions and Tomatoes was excellent although not quite as good as Brasserie Beck's. The Mussels St. Arnold's is still their stand-out dish.
Half priced mussels @ 4pm-7, wings , and onion rings..also! Thai Seafood w/rice was delicious!
Build your own Bloody Mary at brunch!!!
Michael Kelly, best Irish bartender ever!!!
All mussels are amazing. Only 9 bucks for hh.
Also, mini Nutella waffles
Not to pile on, but the Mussels St Arnold w caramelized shallots & duck fat is the way to go.
Try the frites and frite sauce, and don't you dare call them fries.
Buenísimo. El dueño es buena gente, la comida buenísima, y la cerveza que me recomendaron estuvo bien rica.
