Stopped in here around 5:30 on a Friday evening, the place was packed. With luck, we were able to secure seats at the bar after a few minutes. I head that this place is divided into the bar area, and the dining area. I heard rumors of a patio as well, but honestly we never got up from the bar. The bar area was small, but it was nice. You could hear some easy music playing. Certainly a Belgian feel going on here.

SOme spectacular Belgian beers on tap, as well as an impressive bottle selection. Also, other craft beer as well such as 3 Floyds, and an interesting Brown Saison from Sierra Nevada/ Beers were served in the appropriate branded glassware for the most part, which was quite impressive for some of the Belgian brews.

Service was good, particularly for how busy this place was. There were 2 bartenders, and I am not sure if they ever stopped pouring beer while we were there.

Didn't have food, but we sat next to a couple who had a nice pot of mussels, so I would certainly be interested in eating there in the future. Prices seemed reasonable, even for the rare beers. A great place to stop, but get there early if you want a seat.

Just an incredible selection of beer and some tough to find gems--fresh Zombie Dust and some great Belgians amongst others. Super laid back. Will go again. Easy red train from downtown.
