“Stopped in to eat during a Saturday brewery trip with GenDV110+OT. Slightly difficult to park and find, but worth it. Charming little place with a great patio. As Donnie said, food was fantastic. Decent selection of mostly Belgian bottles. Great place to stop for lunch or dinner when in the area.“

“Visited with DCLawyer on a Saturday afternoon after ticking Ornery and Growling Bear in Woodbridge. Nice Belgian restaurant. Free but limited parking in the area, kind of an old town area. Homey atmosphere inside, we chose to sit outside on the patio which was nice but a bit chilly at the time. Friendly service with regular check-ups. No draft beer here, just bottles but a nice Belgian influence on the selection. Food was fantastic, the pommes frites were tasty and well priced for the portion. The Sovereign could learn a thing or two from these guys on proper pommes frites. Had the sauteed chicken breast with cream sauce and mashed potatoes, tasty and filling. Maybe a bit pricey but seemed mostly fair. I wouldn’t come here only for beer but it’s a great food stop if you’re in the area.“

“I’ve sat out on the patio - which I would suggest as the preferred method of seating but have also been seated upstairs. There’s one particular table that is seated right near the small stairwell, and it doesn’t look like fun as people (including the waiters and waitresses) go up and down the stairs. Hard to really fault them - the place, like most of Occoquan is an old house.

The two times I’ve gone here for brunch has been nice. I really enjoyed the food I’ve gotten, and the people I’ve gone there with have enjoyed their food as well.

I think they were only out of one of the beers that our table wanted, but they had everything else. The waiter was enthusiastic, knew enough about beer to have a nice conversation about both the regional and Belgian beers we had been thinking about. Beer was served in proper glassware (at least the ones we purchased).

Parking wasn’t bad when I got there - but be warned, it can be hard to find parking at times - I think there is a public lot about a quarter to half a mile away if you can’t find any nearby. If the weather is nice, the walk is pretty, so it’s not bad.

They suggest calling ahead or making reservations. It’s probably a good idea to call ahead, as the place only has 8 tables inside and maybe 8 more outside but only when the weather is nice from mid-Spring to mid-Fall.“

“Located in an alley off of the main drag, the covk and bowl is a Belgian restaurant located in what was until recently a house. It’s a charming little building in a charming little town. They have 8 tables inside and a number of tables on the patio. Nothing on draft but thy 40-50 Belgian and Belgian-style beers all served in proper glassware. The food was quite tasty, I especially enjoyed the soup du jour. the prices are what you’d expect for the DC metro. The service had a friendly hipster vibe. It’s good to see a place like ths in the DC area. Will come back if in the area.“

“Great Belgian inspired hole in the wall restaurant. The theme is small cafe with French prints, Belgian beer ads. They have a good-sized patio, though we opted to sit inside. They have 5 page beer list of Belgian and Belgian-style beers sorted by general style. The food is rustic style French/Belgian favorites.“
