Foursquare Tips

  • Yes this is a mussel bar but you must try the St. Arnold's Over-Stuffed Burger that's topped with both bacon and prociutto. It also comes with mushrooms, peppers and onions.
  • Team faded approved
  • Belgian influenced menu with imported drafts and mussels galore. Regular menu is also very good .. St. Arnold's Mussels are out of this world. Happy Hour =10$ mussels
  • Don't get the classic mussels. The broth tasted like dirty bath water. But the pesto mussels and other kinds were delicious!
  • The subterranean space features 20 mussels preparations, from a classic mariniere version to a Mexican iteration served in a sauce spiked with jalapeno peppers, onions and cilantro.
  • Heavy hand on the second pour
  • Great big Belgian beers. Jolly waiter is great, others not so much. Don't trust the hostess when she says a table is reserved.
  • Of all the mussels the blue cheese has to be my favorite, not just because they are delicious but the fact that they come with BACON that you can top the side of bread you get with your food!
  • Best mussels I've ever had. Plump, flavorful, and with the good-but-not-great fries, one order is quite filling. Service was very friendly, beer list good, and Monday night special very affordable.
  • When the weather's nice, it's a great spot to drink beer with pups...
  • They only have a couple of vegetarian options, but the delicious portobello sandwich and solid beer list make this a crowd-pleasing choice.
  • Beef stew over frite mmmm
  • Play District Trivia every Wednesday for your chance at $1000 in cash!
  • A little overpriced for mussels but they are delicious!
  • Brunch! Mussels! Beer!
  • Voted Best Cleveland Park Brunch of 2015 by Bitches Who Brunch!
  • Um. Waffles. So good you forget all about syrup, utensils and the fact that you came here for beer.
  • Good beer and mussels
  • Great lambic beers available
  • Be sure to scope out the daily happy specials--they lower the prices from expensive to reasonable, and the eponymous mussels are a total no-brainer.
