A terrific place to drop in for a meal and a few ales in Milwaukee - this rooftop deck they have is hard to beat. A real mix of patrons, from suited and booted business types to chilled out guys in shorts (yours truly). The beer list is dense and deep, with expected focus on the Belgian side. They have some solid partner brewed ales that are made especially for this local chain. Food is enjoyable belgian meat. frites and mussels

Was there as a last stop at a bachelor party. Awesome if you're into Belgian apes.

One of the best places (if not the best) to grab a Belgian brew in Milwaukee.

I would give this place a very high rating for its beer and atmosphere but I would give it barely passing marks for its food. If you want to drink good, interesting beer go here. If you want good food, go somewhere else.

Visited a friend in Mulwaukee, and he knows of my interest in beer. The restaurant is large with both indoor and rooftop seating. The beer selection, at least coming from Texas, was very impressive. That being said, I have a knack for ordering beers on the menu that places do not have in stock. With a selection of what appeared to be well over 200 beers in bottles and draught, I believe I picked three different times to no avail. Granted, I was eventually brought a Hannsen's Geueze that was no longer in the system, and ended up being charged less than retail for it.

We had brunch, very good french toast, which was aided by a great view and nice weather. I believe my friend enjoyed his eggs. This would be a good place to bring anyone from out of town, and also a nice selection for locals.

A must in Milwaukee.

My family and I recently spent a few days absorbing the beer culture in Milwaukee and Benelux was certainly a diamond in the rough. We arrived here on a tip from our hotel bartender and immediately fell for the ambiance and decor. We entered in through the market side (very cool that this place has a market). We were immediately greeted, seated and very well served. Our server was very helpful and casually friendly and he wasn't shy about discussing beer and brewing even though his personal knowledge base was not huge. He was very interested in knowing more about beer in general and didn't mind learning a little bit from his patron.

We were there for breakfast and enjoyed gigantic pannekoekens, one with hame and a wonderful Belgian beer cheese sauce. We also tried 2 of their signature bloody marys and these were delicious as well. Each was served with a bump of a Belgian wit (this comes from a brewery in Belgium that they exclusively contrat with).

The beer list (book) was extensive and well organized. It was very well made and looked expensive which was really cool considering the fact that they print a new one monthly. My server even allowed me to take one with me which I was happy to do.

I will be back to Milwaukee and will certainly keep Benelux on my itinerary.
