Excellent mussels and French fries and beer - our favorite lunch in Greenville. It's like being in Bruges again. Excellent service too!

This is a Belgian restaurant. It has a great atmosphere and lots of good Belgian beer as well as a great wine selection. The service is good, and the food is good. Definitely put this on your Greenville restaurant bucket list!

Last night we had another wonderful evening at the Trappe Door. We went with friends before the theatre and enjoyed wonderful appetizers (duck springs rolls and baked brie) and entrees which were also flavorful and excellently prepared and presented. My husband enjoyed the cherry sausages with fries and three mayos. He really enjoys their special mayos and I had their special of the evening a pork roulade with goat cheese served with mashed potatoes and another side. Our friends enjoyed beef short ribs which were beautifully presented and smelly divine! Everyone was pleased with the wonderful selection of craft and belgian beers on tap as well as the wonderful wine selection. If you have not been to the Trappe Door, you are missing out on a true GEM in Greenville. This type of restaurant and the level of skill coming out of the kitchen usually is found in cities like Chicago, Charleston, Atlanta. We are truly blessed to have this high end, affordable, enjoyable bistro in our beautiful downtown. The decor is really wonderful and you feel so comfortable that you want to stay for a very long time and enjoy the food and ambience. It is always crowded...reservations are STRONGLY recommended.

Came there by accident. GPS led us to a sourdough pizza place and we followed someone down the stairs (pizza is at street level to the right). Once we realized our mistake, we considered leaving; but, the lunch specials looked good. I had the tomato soup with a toasted Gruyere cheese sandwich and a Belgian ale ($8.00??). My wife had the soup and Ceasar salad. The excellent soup was the perfect complement to the best cheese sandwich I ever had. Waitress was very helpful and friendly.

Prices go up at 5. Got there at 4:30 after a movie. Staff downtime and get ready for dinner crowd. We had to put up with someone wiping down tables with a spray bottle and cleaning glasses, and it was extremely cold. The waiter was very knowledgeable, not only about the menu but about the wines and beers. He was spot on. The bread is a disgrace, soft, not crusty, no taste. We had Spanish mussels. Short on sauce, pretty tasty. Mussels are from Price E. Island like everyone else that sells mussels now. They were small but tasty, I could not bring myself to pay $18 for mussels and french fries in the evening but the daytime prices seemed fair. The french fries are probably frozen and not really British frites which are much thinner but you get a lot and they are fried well, pretty salty though. The setting is fun and of course when we were there it was dead silent apart from the loud fun music. It must be deafening when they are busy since it's downstairs, no windows and tables are close. I'd go there again for lunch to dry the beers. Go next door to Cafe Luna for Italian ice cream for dessert.
