The draft line up is impressive, you can get a rare treat once in a while - a bit disappointed with the bottle selection, but not a big deal because the draught speaks for it self. Great food - great service - kudos to Mike!

Awesome place, mostly Belgians on tap and bottles, but they have a good collection of European and American brews as well. Great food and it really transforms at night to a bar atmosphere.

Stopped in for dinner while in town for a Bills game, on a recommendation from our hotel receptionist. Pretty nice atmosphere, dimly lit but decorated with beer bottles and such, and with 32 beers on tap. I’ve had many of those beers before, but was pleasantly surprised to see some rarer stuff available as well. The bottle selection was also pretty nice. The food was very good; I had some poutine (duck-fat fries smothered in cheese curds and gravy), followed by a duck confit reuben. My brother had a delicious sausage/potato pancake dish, and my dad enjoyed a plate of mussels. I had a Jack Daniels barrel treatment of an Emelisse beers, followed by a Troubadour Magma. A great evening, and I look forward to returning sometime.

Well, loved this place. Great ambiance, pretty god service. Great tap list, updated daily. Lots of rare belgians and lots of other interesting choices. Great authentic (maily) Belgian ’themed’ food. Will be back here most trips to Bufallo.

Un bel endroit mais un choix très limité en terme de qualité au fût. La carte bouteille n’est pas beaucoup plus encourageante, Entre kwak et maredsous delirium guiness ou trappe double on fait bien mieux dans la région en choix.

Busy bar that didn’t seem to have anything going on to separate it from the masses...I did get to venture around to closed off patio space to hang out with the bartenders and other employees on their break as they smoked cigs and weed, and apparently have old school friends that work there...the tap list was pretty boring to me though...I ended up having two of the same beer because it was the only thing of their 30+ taps I hadn’t had (and I live 2000 miles away), but please understand this is just a 1st visit rating, my old school friends of buffalo seemed to have high thoughts, so I will definitely give it a 2nd chance next time in town.

Great place. The downstairs was loud and busy, but the dining area was relaxed, and we were able to enjoy the great selection of beers and nice food. Excellent service too.

Friendly, though table service can be a bit slow at times. Selection of beer is world class - locals belgians, imports, always something new here. Mussels and Duck Frites are the way to go, though the sandwiches are tasty. Prices are pretty high however. I managed Brewdog/Mikkeler I Hardcore You and Peche Mortel within a week of eachother here - sweet!

2010-11. Visited on a busy Saturday last November after travelling on a bus with a bunch of fellow Torontonians. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience at this bar and would heartily recommend it to anyone in the city for the day. An extensive blackboard list of beers on tap greets you behind the bar and you can go upstairs to sit for dinner. (We returned in December and enjoyed dinner here in just such a manner with friends.) The menu looks delicious and is well-suited to the brews available. The owner is extremely friendly and fun to enjoy a pint with, whenever he’s around. Would happily return again, if not already taken with it’s sister bar down the road, Cole’s. (5/10/13/10/9/18) 92%

Great looking spot in the Elmwood Village area of Buffalo. Bright, high-ceilinged interior with a large open bar space up front and a similarly-sized raised dining area toward the back of the restaurant. Menu focuses on charcuterie, sandwiches and mussels with a few other things as well. Absolutely killer duck-fat cooked french fries. The outsides were perfectly crispy and the insides were soft and creamy. I had a duck-confit rueben that was awesome and my wife and my sister enjoyed their mussels as well. Our server was friendly and knowledgeable and the patio seating is a nice bonus. Add in 30 great taps and you’ve got a top notch spot that would be tough to beat for a casual lunch while in Buffalo. The fact that Coles is a short 10 minute walk up the street is an added bonus. I don’t see a whole lot to complain about here.
