Average tap selections were priced reasonable. Anything limited on the menu was not available. Anything interesting was so inflated it was stupid. $75 for a 3F Schaerbeekse Kriek? Are you insane?

We waited about an hour but it was Friday. Whatever. What really pissed me off was the service. Our waitress had an attitude and decided to be a general bitch the entire night. She had no personality to speak of. She came to the table, said two words and vanished. I had been rather excited to try this place but after my experience with her as a waitress, I will never be back. There are way too many better bars to spend my money in than waste my time here. You're better off avoiding this place in favor of an establishment that treats its customers as if they want them to return.

Stopped by at 3 on a Saturday. Plenty busy but not overwhelming. Vibe is very chill. 30 or so on tap, focus on Belgians, but lots of local and national craft. Pricing was very fair given the quality. Didn't have any food, but it is high end gastropub fare

An absolutely stellar Belgian bar/restaurant....gastropub....whatever you call it this is one of the 'must visit' places for beer fans in Chicago. The crowd in here is usually mixed, a range of ages, plenty couples and families mixed with friend groups. Can get loud, with the cavernous open main room really amplifying the festivity going on here. Beer selection in bottle and on tap is exemplary. There is a lot of American brewery representation but really if you're here you want to try their extensive Belgian selections.

Food wise, have only eaten here once but loved the offerings, from their charcuterie options through to a fantastic dish of mussels this has something for everyone.

One of the best and most interesting beer lists I've seen. Food is good, very good by bar standards. Staff is knowledgeable. Have enjoyed each of my visits here immensely.

A great place not to far from Wrigley. Stopped in there twice on a recent trip. They have a very good and diverse selection.
The place is bigger than it seems, and both times it seemed packed, but we found seats.
The foods were good and they source some local foods.
The beer selection was very good.
All in all a great place to frequent when in the area!
