Point Brugge is located in a residential neighborhood and seems to have a loyal following. Parking is relatively easy to find and the restaurant is also fairly easy to find. They do not take reservations so if you are going on a Saturday night, go early. We went about 7:00pm and waited about 45 minutes. We heard the hostess telling... More

A small out of the way restaurant with a changing menu. The mussels are the speciality of the house and everyone orders them. Be sure and save room for the sinfully delicious desserts. A very large selection of European beers and unusual drinks.

Every now and then I get a hankering for mussels, which my husband is happy to indulge, so it's off to Point Brugge for moules and frites! A recent weeknight visit was especially memorable! I had my usual moules and frites, and my husband had the scallop special - delectable, tender scallops sitting on a bed of beets and potatoes.... More

I thought the menu was very limited! Pricey for what you get. No one in my group was impressed and I will not go back.

Love this place for mussels and frites, casual atmosphere and friendly service. Only caveat is "no reservations" so (particularly in the summer) the wait can be long ... but worth it. If you're alone or a couple, opt for the bar. Also try their imaginative desserts ... always great1

The location is easy to access. Our server was especially helpful. We were extremely satisfied with the menu choices. Everyone tried something different and not one of us was displeased. We will be sure to return within a few months. All of us have recommended Point Brugge to our friends. Enjoy!

Don't miss out on this incredible cafe in the middle of Point Breeze. I have only had lunch at this small but popular cafe that has a unique and tasty variety of items on their menu. The crab cakes were very good and accompanied with a small salad. A little pricey but worth it. The service was excellent. Parking can... More

Ever since Point Brugge came to life in the old space that used to be "The Point," many years ago, it has never looked back. From day one it has had great food and service. The mussels are clearly the star here. I usually get them in the classic sauce and I've never had a bad batch. Ever. I think... More
