    Seriously... Duck Fat... it's wonderful. The Duck French Dip is amazing. You'll never want one with Roast Beef again.

    First time, and loved it? Waiters were friendly and responsive. If you eat healthy most of the time, and you want a place to indulge your palate with the most comfort oozing, rich, goodness, you have found your place. Nice selection of craft beers. Husband was in heaven.

    I tried the pork belly chips, the cucumber-mango salad, the Q-Dilla, and the snickerdoodle. The salad was fresh and had bursts of tanginess. The pork belly chips were so-so, a bit too dry/chewy for my tastes. The Q-Dilla was maybe the best quesadilla I've had--hints of smokiness, good balance of cheese and meat, and the pickled onions and jalapeños with the salsa created a delicious riot of flavors. I was not a hug fan of the snickerdoodle, but I was stuffed at that point, too. It was okay. I tried the Nose Candy and Hammertime beers. The Nose Candy was my preferred--as it promised, great smell and taste. The Hammertime was a so-so double IPA.

    This past Saturday, my husband and I had tickets to see a concert, Brandi Carlile at The Wiltern. We wanted to grab dinner beforehand so did a little research and came across this place as we wanted something that was not Korean BBQ, sushi or any other Asian cuisine. This place had great reviews on Yelp and after looking at the menu, we were intrigued and decided to make a reservation. I highly recommend making a reservation as we had one for 5:30 - when we got there it was pretty busy for a Saturday that early in the evening and even while we were waiting for our table, the wait for a table of 4 before 6 PM was at least 30 minutes without one. The beer selection was awesome - loved that they had a sour beer on tap. I would categorize the food as unique pub food. We had the feta & fennel salad (which was a nice light way to start the meal - raspberry vinaigrette was superb), the 4 cheese mac & cheese (absolutely delicious - comes out in a little cast-iron skillet, piping out and loved that the top was slightly charred) and the duck French dip (the pickled shallots made this sandwich). And our server was absolutely amazing! As soon as our beers were getting low, he came by right away to ask us if we wanted another round and he was knowledgeable when it came to the beers and the food. I would definitely come back here again anytime I am in K-Town!

    Loved everything we tried. Love the local craft beer list, Loaded Mac n cheese, Death by Duck fries, pork belly chips were amazing and the fried s'mores pop tart with chocolate chip ice cream and peanut butter was a great way to end the dinner. Definitely worth the trip! Staff was great too.

    Saw its interview on Food Network a while back, been eager to try it for ourselves. Its famous duck fries was okay. Duck french was way overpriced for what it is - with a few thin slices of duck in a baguette for $15. I would not go there again.

    Food and service at Beer Belly were good. For a business meeting, Beer Belly isn't the place. It's way too noisy. And, despite our reservation, we were asked to leave after two hours. It's a very small place that's geared towards a quick bite and a quick drink. Not a place to hang out for any length of time.

    Awesome, awesome. Definitely want to go back...there's more food to try. We had the grilled cheese. Absolutely the best grilled cheese, I've ever had. Like french toast with cheese and bacon. Yum? And the loaded mac and cheese - delicious. We split these entrees and were more than full even taking some of the mac and cheese home. So I would not say portions are small. Oh and the watermelon beer was very light and refreshing and, of course, delicious! Loved this place.

    Beer Belly is an energetic craft beer bar situated in the heart of Koreatown. It features new takes on comfort food. We had the Qdilla which was full of complex flavors and packed just enough heat to make it interesting. The Duck French dip was flavorful especially the duck jus which was infused with duck flavor without being salty or greasy. The slices of duck were tender and flavorful and when combined with the horseradish aoli and melted cheese made the duck behave more like roast beef rather than the thinly shaved duck breast that it was. The Bacon Fat fries were flavorful and covered with bits of savory bacon. The wine list is limited, but after all it's named Beer Belly for a reason. Entrees are large enough to share and should be shared, making Beer Belly a great destination for groups of grazing foodies looking for a night out with decadent fried foods and Cheese items.

    If you're looking for original, well-prepared comfort food paired with an outstanding beer selection, this is your place. I hate brussels sprouts, but I gobbled up the ones our group had ordered. The server we had was excellent and made great recommendations. The vibe is lively, youthful and globally diverse. Will definitely return!

    Great, uncomplicated gastropub. Beer Belly is about a block from the Wiltern, where we were seeing an 8:00 show. It was a perfect start to the night! We shared the death by duck fries, spicy Caesar salad, buttermilk fried chicken and jidori hot wings with buffalo/blue sauce. Service was good; we were in and out quickly. And everything was delicious!

    Beer Belly was great. I've always wanted to try this hidden gem in the middle of mid-Wilshire/ Koreatown. We tried the duck fat fries and the Brussels sprouts and they were great. We got there at 5:30pm on a Thursday and it got packed quickly. It's small so it gets loud and crowded, get there early and enjoy some munchies and beer. This is not health food, it's comfort food. Go ahead and indulge.

    Forget your diet and indulge, it will be worth it. The menu and craft beer selection is great. The food is delicious and provides exactly what it promises. The snack foods and sides will precede the the entrees, but they explained that and it was ok, it was a fun experience and worth it.

    I saw this restaurant originally on Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives; and it didn't disappoint. The "Death by Duck" is out of this world as was the grilled cheese (not like any grilled cheese you've ever had before - I assure you). They had a vast assortment of beer, but I prefer wine. I had two glasses of a nice red, but the pours were scant. The server said they were a 5 oz pour, but it sure didn't look like it to me. That was the only negative I had about this place. Next time I won't go for wine - I'll pick a brew like they're known for. The food is fabulous. Reservations are recommended.
