Went here for lunch on recommendation of aasher a local BA. He said try the Pookah Sour and he was right about that beer!

Atmosphere/quality: Nice clean restaurant that has outside seating, a small bar area seating about 6 to 10 people, a crepe bar and indoor dining area.

Service: This is the part that really dissapointed me the most. It was really slow service with being really busy. I am not sure if they were under staffed or what the reason was. Wasnt greated by any staff members until sitting at a table for at least 5 to 10 minutes. This was the only downfall of the visit here.

Selection: Small menu and small beer list. The beer list was 3 house beer including the sour and 4 draft guest taps. What I will say is that while the beer selection lacked in choices it was very deverse and you could still find something good to drink as far as a craft beer goes. The menu was small but I liked that what was available to eat.

Food: I order the mussels it came with bread and frites with 2 dipping sauces. I must say they gave you a 2 lb serving of steamed mussels and it was alot of food. I liked that you had about 9 choices for what you could have your mussels steamed in that was first time I have seen that. Also had cheese, sausage and chacuterie plate option that sounds good, but also pricey like the mussels. Everything tasted great from the food I ordered. The Pokah Sour was just as good as an Upland lambic and I might have even enjoyed it a little more since it was a draft sour.

Value: $32 for one beer, mussels, & frites; it was the cost of lunch for one person. The mussels I thought were a bit expensive, but the beer was a great value at 5.25 for I am guessing a 16 to 18oz pour of a spectacular sour beer. The portions are large and thats where the value is think.

Great reccommendation for sure from aasher, I will be back someday.

Odd spot. Doors downstairs were all locked, directions to use "north" door... which was apparently upstairs? Then after ordering a flight I attempted to sit at a table - all of which were empty - and was lectured that this was "table service" and that I was apparently infringing on someones service area. OK. I just wanted to sit in the sun. Beer selection is small but what I tried was solid quality. I didn't sample the food but it looked decent.

This is probably the most disappointing place I have ever been to. I love Tripel de Ripple but all of the other offerings were horrible. The mood inside was very somber and depressing. The beers for Outlier were as bad as anything I have ever had.

About 5 or 6 years ago, someone sent me a Triple de Ripple in a trade. Ever since then, I wanted to visit this particular spot, since the beer was quite nice. Decor is really quite nice, beautiful and quaint. Lots of attention to detail and a very clean and mature kind of place. Service was very nice. Since I was there for lunch I basically had the bar to myself. I talked a good bit with the owners and they are very nice people. Beer was good, although they had more beer from their second brewery, Outliers, than they did for BB. Two guest beers also. I wouldn't have minded a wider selection on the Belgian edge, but there was still plenty to have. Overall a very worthy stop and a visit I have been wanting to make for quite some time now.

I love this place. I actually think the mussels And fries are better here than in Brugge Belgium!

Some great food options- stick with mussels though. One great beer on tap- Pooka. Delicious. Everything else can be hit or miss.
