My husband and son and I came to this restaurant when dropping our son off to Dickinson College. My son swore it was the best burger he had ever eaten. To me it looked like a nice homemade burger andy husband thought it was good. I had the chicken stew which was fantastic and a cherry lambic which did pair... More

My daughter and I split the steak and fries and they were out of this world. We were just visiting Carlisle and were so surprised to find such an amazing place!

Beer menu was impressive! Food was outstanding. Obviously popular with locals for good reason. Try the fries, they are amazing.

Nice selection of beer, nice bar sitting area, mussels are delicious! It can be a bit loud when the restaurant is full, but it doesn't detract from the experience.

This was the only place open for lunch on Sunday in the summer. We were treated to a very filling kettle of mussels with frites for $20. You can select from 4 preparations - the curry was light and delicious. I was able to substitute a salad for the frites and the lemon dressing was delicious. The service was friendly... More

Found this walking around High street and could not be happier with the experience. Frites were fantastic. Beer and other food very good. Definitely will be back.

Wittekerke beer was the best of our sampler and also the least expensive. The food, atmosphere and service were all passable, but nothing outstanding. The grilled sandwich was served with bread burnt black. No offer from staff to make it right. It's not a place I'd choose to frequent again.

Charming Belgium restaurant in the heart of downtown Carlisle. An order of the fries with their homemade ketchup is a must - ok they are fried in beef fat and you can taste the delicious difference. Our table also had an order of the fried cheese croquettes. Completely yummy. I had the lamb burger medium rare and it was juicy... More

If you're looking for a good European style meal with great Belgian beer, this is the place to go. We really enjoyed the steak and the salad. But the beer was excellent! Will be back for more.
