Great spot for food and beers, we went twice; once for dinner, again for brunch. The pannekoken is outstanding. Great beer list, lots of quality Belgian stuff both on tap and in bottles. Great service both times.

My wife and I stopped in here twice during our stay in Milwaukee ... once late on a Friday night for our last beer of the night, and then on Saturday because we were intrigued enough that we thought we’d try this place for dinner. The place has a sturdy draft list, obviously bent toward the Belgians, and an interesting-looking menu. I think I left a bit let down, however, not because it was bad necessarily, but because the service lacked (they were packed), and the food wasn’t as stellar as we’d let ourselves imagine it might be. Still a good place, particularly if you’re looking for a Belgian-inspired break from the midwestern barrage of "normal" beers in the long list of beer locales in Milwaukee.

Good place for a nice meal and good selection of beer. The wait staff wasn’t too friendly, and not very knowledgeable. Maybe a little too typical. The best thing going for it is the food is good quality and there’s a nice selection of beers to go with it. The service could be improved.

In town for first time, stopped in for lunch. Has some good food and was delighted to find 30 Belgian style beers on draft. I think I died and went to heaven!! They have sell samplers of four 4 oz tasters, nice way to sample Belgians I haven’t had before. They have 4 beers from "lowland brewing" a Belgian brewer brewing for the restaurant group. Tried 3 of the 4 and liked them all. You like Belgian beers ( I love them) you are going to love this place!

Nice place downtown w/ a good selection of different belgian beers. They have a few local micros as well, but you’re here for the Belgians.

As the name suggests this place has quite a large selection of Belgian beers on tap and by the bottle. The bottle list is pretty extensive. Not much in the way of local beer but there's a few on tap. The bar is nice and open. Servers are good if sometimes absent. Food was great. I had some sort of pancake topped with eggs and beer cheese sauce. Dynamite! Solid stop if you're in town.

Pricey. A bit uppity. A bit more focus on imports than craft. Huge selection of taps and bottles. Staff seem to know a bit about beer. Not bad. I did not eat.

Cool rooftop patio. Food is very good. Basically the same as all the other Lowlands restaurants. There are several "Belgians" on tap that rarely change. It’s probably at the top of the heap with alehouse for beer nerds in the third ward.

This is the fifth member of the Lowlands Group of restaurants in and around Milwaukee (others are Cafe Hollander, Trocadero and two called Cafe Centraal). Cafe Benelux, like the others, has a remarkable selection of Belgian-style ales on tap plus a crazy-long beer menu that gets reprinted every few months. The bar area here is a bit cramped, with restaurant seating packed in close. The food selections are excellent (a pannenkoeken is certainly worth trying). The cafe is in a very trendy neighborhood (shopping, restaurants and theaters nearby) , so finding street parking can be a challenge. I’m looking forward to trying the rooftop patio seating next summer.
