The place is compact, so if you want a table for Sunday Brunch, you have to arrive when they open or you will have a long wait. We arrived less than 10 minutes after they opened and got one of the last tables outside. They have a great selection of Belgian beers, which we enjoyed. We also enjoyed the Belgian... More

Found this by chance, while visiting Reynold's st shops in Point Breeze area of Pittsburgh. It's a little corner cafe, very unpretentious, quite charming. Their specialty is the the moules (mussels) in various sauces. Curry is the favorite, but I also liked the classic. Comes with frites (fries, but waaay better than most restaurant ones). I saw other interesting dishes... More

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!
