“Authentic...Outstanding!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2014 via mobile

Have eaten lunch and dinner here several times.
The food is outstanding especially the traditional Belgian fare. Indeed for what it is worth the ethnic restaurants in Greenville are the pick of the litter.....fine dining, not so much.
Crepes are unbelievable and the traditional European below street level rustic atmosphere is spot on!
Visitors to Greenville....include a visit to The Trappe Door on your schedule!

“Great Beer Selection”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2014

We did not dine at this establishment, but enjoyed several beers here. The beers on tap are of good variety and we loved every one we tried. Definitely a nice range of different Beligian style beers, and the cocktails didn't sound half bad either. My fiance and I are suckers for Belgian beers, and this place provided exactly what we wanted. We recently visited the Delirium brewery in Belgium, and this is the closest thing to it we have found in the states so far. Not to mention, they had a TON of unique beers available by the bottle. At then end of the day, can't comment on the food, but definitely a great place to have a drink.

“Excellent Belgian Food, Lousy Service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2014

We visited The Trappe Door not long ago, and found an excellent selection of Belgian food and beer in a nice decor. Mussels served in Belgian style pots were a highlight. But the service here was absolutely lousy. Getting a waiter to even take a drink order seemed a chore, and it took forever to get the food, with members of our party being served at different times. The service downgraded the whole evening.

“Great Selection of Belgian Beer”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2014

My wife and I stopped for lunch, the crepes were good but the chicken sandwich was disappointing. Based on that alone I would have just given 2 or 3 stars but the wait staff was excellent.

“Great Dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2014

While in downtown Greenville, we ate at The Trappe Door. Our son had read about it and thought it would be a fun place to try. It was a very unique dining experience. The waiter was very helpful in offering suggestions from the menu. In our party, we had Brie as an appetizer, which was outstanding. We also had hamburger, steak, and chicken among our four diners. Everyone was very happy with their choice. My only complaint would be that it is very loud in this restaurant due to the way the sound travels. Once two large parties left, this improved.
