Good beer and atmosphere

Stopped in here on a Saturday night as our original dinner venue had too long of a wait and I am glad it did. We got the last table available as it was packed. I ordered a veal burger and it was delicious, we ordered their specialty fries so I didn't touch the side that came with the burger... read more

Cafe Bruges is a treasure in our little town! With delicious mussels in several tasty sauces and great double-fried frites, as well as other interesting offerings, the restaurant provides a unique dining experience. The beer selection is extensive, and servers are happy to provide samples to help diners choose. Daily specials are great, too.

Serves great Frits with really good sauces. Gotta check out curry ketchup. Had a burger which was cooked well and very tasty. The choice of Belgium beers is endless

3 of us went out on a Friday night and made no reservation (which is recommended), so we waited at the bar while enjoying a Beer Tasting Plate! Their specialty is the Mussels with fries (Moules et Frites belles!) and they offer many varieties (the same applies to many types of mayonnaise). They also serve good desserts if your liver...

The beer, burgers, and fries are good. However, those three items are not a distinguishing characteristic. The Belgium-motif is interesting, but the restaurant would not stand-out in Belgium as the Belgium specialty items are special for the U.S. for not for Belgium. The biggest drawback of the restaurant are some of the prices and overall food quality. The beers are... More

Twelve family members went with me to this restaurant for the first time on a Saturday night. The restaurant does not accept reservations or call ahead seating, but I gave them notice we were coming at a specific time and needed a table for twelve. Downtown Carlisle was hopping. Parking was a bit of a challenge since there is no... More

Excellent beer selection. No bar so mixed drinks are out. Home made ketchup is great. Steak frites is the best thing on the menu. Burgers are good too.
