Bonus #1: Beer and wine bar only, with some eats. That controls the kind of people who come in friday night - it's a good place for a laidback night on the town, assuming you're serious about the laidback. Bonus #2: Quality of the food and beer and wine is excellent. Though I would not recommend the desserts, except this... More

A nice spot for lunch or dinner right on Monroe St. Sit in the window and enjoy the neighborhood, or get a table. Great staff and atmosphere with a wide selection of ne'er, wine and spirits. I highly recommend starting with a beverage and an order of the Belgian fries which comes with 2 different types of aioli for dipping.... More

There are so many beer choices and a lot of nice wines as well. Nice atmosphere - fun but not at all "college town". Nice dining, good food and service.

My husband and I tried to eat here on a Saturday night around 5:00pm and there were people standing outside waiting to get in. We thought it must be fabulous so we'll come back when it's not so busy. The following week we went for lunch, no waiting. The one waitress did an OK job. I ordered the frites with... More

Small eclectic French menu. Very friendly staff. No rush. Sit back and enjoy the uniqueness of the setting.

Luckily, the problem hasn't been the food. The menu isn't extensive, but what they do have is great. I have been going here for over nine years and I now find myself passing it instead of stopping because the service. I tell you the nail in the coffin recently, but prior to this, I had noticed the service starting to... More

The menu seems fairly straightforward and tight, but don't be fooled. Even their burger is much more than the sum of its parts. How they manage to pack so much flavor into their entrees and side dishes is beyond me. And the beers here are not just beer. Try their top selling Belgian offering from the tap (don't remember what... More

Love the Smoked Salmon BLT and Apple Swiss sandwiches. My husband and I order these sandwiches and split them. We Drive from Beaver Dam, WI just to have these from time to time. Please don't ever remove these items from your menu! Great Atmosphere as well.

A huge beer selection, and all beers that are off the beaten path which is refreshing. A very diverse menu, from simple sandwiches to interesting pasta dishes (I had radish fettuccine). All in all a good experience. Will be there again.

Get together before the game. 250 beers await you, along with a nice menu of food. Great Belgian beers, charcuterie plates and burgers. Had their squash soup-very good. Frites with or without truffle oil. Seating for about 100 at bar and tables. Upscale decor for a bar restaurant. On street parking. Attentive staff.

Thank richardj100
