“Outstanding Asian food and beer too!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2013

Mekong is a beer lovers place with more than 50 beers available. In addition they have a full bar. But, the real star here is the food. Fresh ingredients and exceptional execution make this a place I definitely want to return to. Meat eater or vegetarian, there are so many choices, you won't believe it.

“Excellent Bar, Decent Restaurant”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013

The bar area was great. There was a wide selection of beers at reasonable prices. The crowd was interesting as well. The problem was that when we were seated for dinner, we were seated next to about 60 people who were all standing at the bar. It was not a good environment to enjoy a meal and the food was only average. I would return again for the bar but not for a meal.

“Party”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

A nice place and the food is good. The beer choices are extensive. The problem with the restaurant is that every year our group celebrated Christmas there we paid more money for less food. If you go, just go for the beer.

“Mekong Vietnamese Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

Dozens of draft beers, with emphasis on Belgian brews. The beer menu has as many pages as the food. They can handle 2 to 20 people equally well.
