    Portion sizes are huge, but the food is delicious. Their beer menu might be one of the best in Milwaukee too. For two, I'd recommend getting an appetizer & entree to split + a drink (or 2) each.

    I usually don't like Bloody Mary's but the Rad Barbie w/its horseradish infused vodka & bacon has shown me the error of my ways. the biermosa is also delicious #drunkard

    The bloodies r on point & banana Nutella waffle, heavenly! Has always been a 45 minutes wait time. I suggested you kill time by walking across the street at the public market to get a drink or browse.

    Bloody Mary was awesome! Burger with the fried egg was delicious and perfectly cooked. Fries were some of the best! Love the outdoor patio on the roof

    Great atmosphere (good music selection, outdoor seating in great people watching corner). Food was excellent, including meat-satisfying dishes for carnivores and plenty of tasty vegetarian options.

    Beer list is awesome but intense! Tell the waitress what you typically or certain flavors you're looking for and she'll be able to hear it down to two or three. Great outdoor seating upstairs.

    REALLY great food and large beer selection. A little disappointed with the selection of sours, considering it is a Belgian inspired restaurant. Service could have been better

    Recommendation for breakfast, lunch OR dinner: “Brussels” Pannenkoeken—a massive crepe loaded with asparagus, fried eggs, pancetta, parmesan and belgian beer cheese sauce—delicious!

    1. The man who described the tater tots as a "State Fair in your mouth" is a genius. 2. They're less like tater tots and more like cheese beignets of potatoes and bacon. 3. But better than that.

    Great vibe for brunch! I got the duck poutine. A bit oily and salty, but it made me feel like I was back in Montreal. Bloody Marys are the best here!

    Great food!!! Try the turkey burger with curry burger. My friend got the sprocket burger and said it was the best burger she ever had. And try the sirachi mayo with the fries.

    If they ask you if you'd be okay sitting in the shade on the roof, and it's still April, say no. Brrrrr! Fantastic food, super cool atmosphere. And their asparagus matches their beer list.

    Amazing rooftop that would make Rock Bottom in Chicago quiver. Wicked spicy mayo sauce for dunking french fries.

    I once brought my whole family of 23 people here and everyone loved the food they got AND the service! Best Bloody Mary in Milwaukee as well as the best rooftop seating, Benelux is perfect year-round.

    Cafe Benelux has the best Turkey burger I have tasted. The combination of siracha mayo and curry ketchup is a WIN! If you love turkey burgers and are hungry... look no further!

    Had the crispen huckleberry pear cider. Great choice if your gluten free. Rooftop season make sure to get there early to get a table.

    The charcuterie board was amazing! (pickled carrots, pork belly, duck confit, cheese, and awesome 9 grain bread)

    Quinoa Skillet, healthy-ish, and lots of great flavor a. A little tomato spicy, a little mellow. Pair with Tripel Karmeliet!

    Always a great place no matter the meal. Roof Top Dining is special for sure. Give it a try when in the 3rd Ward.

    Beautiful location with great style. Very good drink menu. But, subpar food. Hit or miss service. Food is low on flavor and high on price. Go for drinks and apps, but go elsewhere for a meal.

    Dinner and drinks at Benelux are fabulous, but brunch is a must. Start off with the beignets!

    Don't call them Frites if you don't cook the potatoes like frites. Call them fries. Also the first mussel I ate still had the beard on it. I've never had that happen at a restaurant before.

    Huge beer list to explore but you can't go wrong with the signature Tripel Karmeliet.

    Third Ward’s top three rooftop dining, or drinks location. Benelux “Domes” in the winter; must have reservations.

    The sprocket burger is ridiculous. How can you go wrong with a burger topped with an egg fired in duck fat? You can't! Put down your phone, grab something from the expansive beer menu, and order it.

    This is one of the coolest new places in Milwaukee. The rooftop, downtown setting feels very New York or Chicago and the food and drinks are great. Read more

    The best rooftop patio in the Historic Third Ward. Try the giant, pancake shaped Pannenkoeken and check out the 20-page Bier list.

    I guess we lucked out with our waiter too. He was more than attentive making sure everything was up to par. I was very impressed at how he made us feel as though we deserve to be treated well!
