We came in for lunch a bit too early but they were happy to take our orders. Much appreciated. Good sized portions. We had a steak sandwich, blt and a schnitzel. Sandwiches were grilled which my friend really liked.

This place is in a weird location, so it doesn't really vibe as it should. The beer and food was good, but it was lacking in atmosphere. Felt a bit concretey. Mac cheese was good.

Had a lot of fun here, sitting outside and inside when the weather got colder. For Belgian National Day we sampled several beers (Belgian or Belgian inspired), and had a nice meal with friends. Great atmosphere and very friendly staff. Thank you for good memories!
