I had been wanting to try this one for awhile so my wife and I made it our destionation for our anniversary.

It is settled just off the canal in Broad ripple village and quite easy to find. The nice thing about this location it there is so much else to do around the area that you really could make a day of it.

We entered about 5:45 on a Saturday night and had called ahead, which was a good thing since there was only about a dozen tables in the dining room area but more in the bar area. It seemed very upscale and maybe a bit snotty at first but we quickly relaxed into the mood. We had a wonderful waiter, I have forgot his name but he was the only male on the wait staff. He was very friendly and very down to earth. We ordered beers first and was lucky that they had the two that I was hoping to try on tap that night. They usually only have 2 ot 3 beers on tap at any given time which could be a problem if you were looking for something else from thier asortment. I started with the Black and my wife had the Blonde. The black was complex and amazing while the Blonde was just average and a bit yeasty. We folowed with a Tripel each which was lovely and sessionable for the style.

The menu was very Belgium oriented and featured Mitrailettes(sandwichs), Crepes, Moules(mussels), amazing salads, soups, and Frites which are belgium fries. We had a sesonal cheese plate as an appetizer which paired well with the Black. I had the sausage Mitrailette w
ed peppers and dubbel glazed onions. My wife had the chicken Mitrailette. Both came with fites and choice of 2 dipping sauces (I highly recomend the hot curry and garlic aioli). The meals were very good especially the frites.

Overall this was a great place for a meal or a night with friends. We will be back soon.

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.
