The cookie butter waffle was AMAZING! The closest Taste of Belgium is 1.2 hours from me-I’ll definitely be making that trip again! That waffle was SO worth it!

Server was honest and let us know they were low in staff. However it took over 45 minutes for us to get our food. Food was good.

We had a reservation for 5:45 before an 8:00 PM concert. We ordered almost immediately, but only received our appetizer, a dish that usually takes 2-3 minutes to prepare over a half hour later. We were told almost 20 minutes after that that the kitchen had lost our ticket, but we were assured that 1) our food would be out quickly, and 2) that it would be taken care of. By 7:15 we had to leave because we still had not received our food. The other tables were getting their food in a seemingly normal amount of time though. While leaving, the most we got was a “oh I’m sorry.” Honestly, super disappointed. The worst part is because it was so late, we ended up having to spend almost $100 on food at the concession stand at the concert because we never got our dinner.

Our server, whose name I didn’t get I regret, was phenomenal. Kept us updated on our food as you were low on help, but got it right out to us and was really friendly and did a great job. The waffles are always awesome!

Great food! I had the ham and Brie waffle and my husband had the chicken, biscuits and gravy. Both were amazing. Highly recommend their fries with the chipotle Mayo. They also have a case of baked goods. My husband and I got the key lime pie and it is one of the best I’ve ever had. Didn’t have the cookies but those looked great too. Friendly staff and efficient service. Will be going back!

Our expectations were too high. Probably a good place for a burger and beer but not much less.

Server was inexperienced but had a great attitude and she will improve with time.

Food (Salmon dinner) was tasty, well presented, and served on a warm plate, however very overcooked.

Desert Crepe was outstanding !

Would we return: Yes, for a burger and a beer.

The best fries I've had, but I've also loved everything I've ordered before. I wish the indoor restaurant had all the same options as the Findlay Market location, but both are amazing. We usually go only on Sundays to finish out a trip, so it's always very loud with so many people so close together, but it's the ONLY complaint. I love stopping by!

This was an amazing experience! We honeymooned in Belgium, and this was a slice of the past! The frites, waffles, and the sauces were so reminiscent of Belgium! We were so very pleased.

They had no CO2, so no soda or beer was available. Food was great. Waiter and hostess were rushing us to leave even though there were other empty tables around us.

Outstanding! The poutine was savory and the charcuterie plate had a wonderful assortment of meats and cheeses! The smoked salmon baguette had an array of flavor with the goat cheese dill spread and capers making it a sublime brunch sandwich! Let's not forget the ricotta cream waffle which was not too sweet or rich but extremely well balanced with flavor!

If you are a bloody Mary connoisseur, the Citrus & Herb Mary is a marvelous beverage with the perfect combination of lemon and basil!

I would be remiss if I did not mention the amazing selection of Belgian and local beers on tap!

An amazing brunch experience to enjoy with your spouse!!

Service was pretty poor…there was a large table next to us that seemed to take all of their attention. Hard to get water, even though they left carafes on the other table. Waitress would apologize but then continue to disappear forever a long time. Waffle was over cooked —typically the food is perfect!

The food there was delicious, you may want to ask how big the portions are when you order your food. The waffle was really filling though and very tasty.
