recent visit for lunch..been trying to get here for years...parking isn’t a problem with pay lots across street..place is split in two...went right upon walkin in..long bar that runs most of the place with tables parralel to bar..proper glassware galore and a pretty stellar draft list and bottle list..one of few places in world where you can get de garre on draft..russian river and hill farmstead were available as well but nothing exceptional from both on my visit..food really was good, cheese plate was well put together, got 3 cheeses with 1 meat..american type country ham benton from tn i believe which was excellent...cheese board was great but would be nice if you could get a price fix 3 cheeses 2 meats deal for about 25 bucks...board seemed pricey but was good..apparently on Sunday they have 1/2 price cheeses..mussels, tacos, chicken kebob, and burger were all very tasty..really liked that I could get a taster sample of a few things..beer prices are really pretty good for some world class stuff..bit bummed that they didn’t have a few more HF selections, or that a Cantillon reserve bottle wasn’t an option, but hey it is nice to have expectations..stayed with the Belgian theme and had a De La Senne and also a Russian River draft..All in all for my book this place lived up to the hype..the bottle list had a few really well priced gems that those in the know can spot out for sure...can see how this might be mobbed around dinner time..worth a visit for sure...

Came for the special pre-superbowl Saturday event. Only a couple miles of 476 so fairly easy to get to. Parking mehhh, but i dont mind walking. Overall small but clean place. Just booths and the bar. No TVs. Not sure what they usually have on draft but this was nice line up. 6 Russian River beers, Hill Farmstead plus others. No complaints there... Food wise, I had a gyro/kabab which was tasty. Food menu is a little different which I can appreciate it. Clean uni-sex bathrooms. I even got a small growler of supplication to take home... F**k yeah!

Lunch stop before leaving town. Parked around the corner at a pay spot. Not busy at lunchtime. Great service. Taplist was impressive but no real whales on it. They did have a gueuze on tap, plus a Hill Farmstead offering. Didnt check the bottle list. They did have pours of Xyauyu Gold which was nice cause I was dreading the $50 bottle cost for that one. Food was decent. Overall a good experience and one I would be happy to repead

Just a hop, skip and jump from Wayne train station. The bricked building is inconspicuous from the outside but upon entering is a different story. The Belgian bar to the right is a real treat. Excellent beer selection with a few local breweries on offer as well as the likes of Russian River, JP etc. I had delicious escargot and scallop brochette to eat. The bartender was very attentive and gave prompt service throughout. Impressive glassware selection lining the bar wall and also a great selection of whisky. This was another highlight in PA.

When you walk in you’re given the option of Belgian or Italian as you either walk left or right. I opted for "next door" (Belgian). The draft list was solid with a good mix of local beer, is craft beer and Belgians. I opted for some captain Lawrence as I don’t get up to the northeast very often. The food was incredible. I would highly recommend the bunny bites which are super spicy crunchy and delicious. I got the Thai ginger version. I followed that up with an order of hobbit ribs which were good but paled in comparison to the bunny bites. The bar is long and there is a trendy vibe. The service was semi slow and relaxed but once I got my beer, things started rolling along nicely. Overall a good experience.

Interesting place. Great beer selection. I like the tins on the walls of the breweries. Had a Blind Pig. Tons of awesome glassware for every possible beer style. Loved the Russian River bottle selection. Food was good too.

Stopped here recently while taking a scenic drive back from DC to northern NJ. Actually after reading the reviews on RateBeer I pretty much rearranged my drive to accomodate a visit here...and boy was it worth it! If you’ve read any of the reviews you already know about the unique setup...Italian restaurant one side (with all beers available from the other side), and Belgium restaurant and beer bar on the other. What amazed me about this place was not just the huge bottle list...or even how strong it was from a Belgium perspective...but just the overall knowledge this place (i.e. staff) has and the incredibly large selection of correct glasswear. It doesn’t stop there though. This is an authentic Belgium menu and I highly recommend this food...especially if you think Belgians only eat two things (frites & mussels). I would say that eating (and drinking) here is not cheap...but I would also say it’s worth every penny for the amazing experience. This is clearly a destination craftbeer bar you should go out of your way for or plan a special trip to. You can also couple a visit here with a trip to Victory Brewing in nearby Downingtown.

Wow! I’m not sure if I’ve ever been to a better beer bar than this! An incredible beer menu with very good servers that are quite beer savvy. They also feature a pretty exotic and delicious food menu. The beers are very fairly priced as well. I go to try Ale Smith’s Speed Way, Russian River’s Pliny, and Baladin’s Xyauyu amongst a few other in 1 sitting!!! Incredible!

By far the best place I went to on my last visit to the philly area. You walk in and you can go 2 different directions; on the left is I think Italian and on the right Belgian. I choose wisely and went right. I was by myself and hoping for a bar spot but it was a busy Thursday and the bar was packed so I grabbed a table. Service was a little slow but from then on it was good. The beer selection was pretty good and I went with a Nugget Nectar and a Union Jack. The food was great! I tried the Mussels and then the Gyro and both were awesome. Cool place and I would go back if in the burbs again.

A Belgian style restaurant on the bar side. I have been going to Teresa’s Next Door off and on for years. I have been there when the place was empty as well as when there were 30 people waiting outside for a table. Very good, ever changing, well rounded beer selection (good wine selection too). Check their website for bottle & draft beers. http://www.teresas-cafe.com/TNDOnTap.htm My menu favorites: cheese & charcuterie, bunny bites, Moules-frites and chocolate chip waffles topped with crème. I tend to order the same items so I don’t know about other menu items. I use to travel in to Philly to a very popular spot if I wanted Moules-frites and Belgian beers. I don’t bother going in to Philly anymore. The quality of Teresa’ mussels has improved over the years for the better. I don’t know what changed but it was for the best. The place isn’t outrageous in price for the quality of food and beer/wine selection but it isn’t cheap. I don’t go there to eat on the cheap . Wait staff is good. Bartenders are really knowledgeable in beer and wines. Tables turn quickly. No reservations are taken – just walk ins. I have found over the years that they cannot accommodate a party 6 or more. I went there with 6 people on two different occasions, the tables in the front window were free, no waiting list and the hostess refused to put us all in front together. Only offered us three tables for two around the restaurant. No big deal, we went down the road. I would call ahead and reconfirm if this still is the case if you plan to go as a group.
