This was the first place I stumbled into after an exhausting 12 hour trip overnight from boston, and it made me happy.

The building is beautiful, the interior is very warm and inviting. Long wooden benches on the side and smaller tables scattered throughout. It was about 11am when we entered and still somewhat empty.

We were greeted immediately (which almost NEVER happens to me in europe) and served up beers very quickly. The waitress spoke a bit of english and generally got a kick out of my broken french.

The beer selection is average...my first thought was to look for beers that I had never seen at home in the states, and this was easisly accomplished. My companions chose more tried and true beers we were better accquianted with. However they do offer these huge (500ml I think) glasses for the draft beers.

The food was good, and what we later discovered, pretty typical of a bar in belgium....mostly finger food & apps....some nice sandwhiches. Trappist cheese & butter came with a lot of the stuff.

It got more & more crowded as we stayed...the lunch rush was considerable, but I found the one sole waitress working still paid attention to us

Definitely worth a try

This is a fantastic and really beautiful beer hall that's been in the family for three-generations (since ~1890). It's been at this location since 1910 and it looks as if all the fixtures are original! Even my wife, who doesn't drink, loved it. You don't see places like this in the US. It's densely packed with small tables just large enough to hold four beers and a few plates. Perfect for sitting with a group and enjoying some suds and grub. The staff was great. Brussels is very cosmopolitan and the people are used to non-tourist foreigners and make you feel at right at home (unlike some "other" French-speaking countries...). This place was no exception. It's a few minutes walk from Grand Place and worth a visit. I didn't eat here but the food looked plain but very good. The selection of beers was respectable (a dozen or so taps, plus bottles). I'm not a Geuze fan, but did enjoy my Orval. Definitely would put his on your list if you're remotely close.
