“This is a top 10 place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2010

This place is underrated on this site as of this posting. The food is very, very good and very reasonable, too. Great fries, excellent appetizers (do not miss the skewered chicken and melted cheese appetizers) and an interesting variety of entrees.

Lots of diners order the mussels in one of two versions..That's what the place is known for. But, everything we saw coming out of the kitchen looked great. Be prepared to wait. Small place...No reservations are taken. Only criticism......Very noisy.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2010 via mobile

Great Mussels, Sandwiches & Beer. My wife and I went there for lunch recently and loved it. We had the mussels in the white wine sauce. They were great with the french bread for dunking...yum! We then had pesto shrimp sandwiches and frites and washed them down with a couple of belgian beers. Not cheap but great authentic euro fare...highly recommended!

“This needs to be in the Top Ten.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2010

Last night this became one of my favorite restaurants. I would drive here for dinner. And I live 4 hours away. I'm not kidding. But simply put this was one of my favorite dining experiences in recent memory. It was a perfect dinner.

Started with the crab cakes which were terrific with a dill remoulade and the macaroni and cheese which was gooey and great. Both were good and filling at reasonable price point. Then came the moules frites which I highly recommend. The red curry sauce is the best. Please get this. I beg of you. The fries were terrific as well. Twice fried with an amazing mayo. The baguette they give you is necessary to sop up the juices or perhaps your tears as you sob uncontrollably in gastronomic hysteria.

Top it off with a bottle of Mark West pino noir for $25 and you have a wonderful evening. Highly recommend. And thanks to my brother and sister-in-law for the recco. This place is indeed a gem
