When we have guests visiting, we always take them to Occoquan. The town is simply a wonderful place to spend the afternoon. While there are several great restaurants, the moment I hear, "I am in the mood for mussels," then the Cock and Bowl is...More

Just a short hop from the Workhouse Art Center. It's cozy and dry on a rainy day, and probably delightful in good weather on the patio. Menu selections were very tasty and the beer selections were great! The little village is quaint and full of...More

We went for Sunday brunch and it was delicious. It's a small restaurant with a few tables downstairs and a few more upstairs. They also have a nice size outdoor patio. The staff is friendly and informative. My daughter and I shared their seasonal fruit...More

Great little place in an Alley in the quaint town of Occoquan. Known for it Belgian Beers, the food is even better. Recently tried their Sunday Brunch, it was worth the wait for a table. The food and atmosphere takes me back to the small...More

You don't have to brave the airlines to visit an authentic little European neighborhood bistro. Come down to the quaint riverfront town of Occoquan for a little boutique shopping and finish up with a visit to our cozy bistro for a fine Belgian beer and a delicious meal. We are serving up always-fresh, always-homemade European bistro specialties, a selection of 60+ Belgian and Belgian-style beers we know you'll love, and a whole lotta coziness and welcome. Are they the freshest Prince Edward Island Blue Mussels and the crispy-creamiest fresh-cut Belgian Frites? You bet! Is there a beautiful street-side brick outdoor patio? Yep, we've got that, too. No fancy frills, just great beer, wine, and good, freshly prepared food. Oh! And we forgot to mention the delicious Non-GMO waffles. But you won't...see you soon! !
