The place is open late and there is a late menu including pizzas. The service is great, young smart people. You can taste the draft beers before ordering. Not a fancy place but cozy and welcoming

This restaurant offers consistently tasty Belgian cuisine with a little something for everyone. Mussels and frites are of course the specialty and the mussels come in about 5 different preparations from classic to spicy. Frites are served in the classic manner with mayonnaise and mustard...More

Best thing to do is call. They write them on a chalk board above the bar, you won't find them in a menu
