“Lot of potential; could improve, but pretty good”
Reviewed 22 August 2013 via mobile

A Sunday evening visit was OK... Nothing really great. Over-cooked steak & yes, gummy soggy potato pancakes. (Do people here really eat them with maple syrup alongside steak or a shrimp dinner?) Friendly staff, need more training in service. Cool old town and Belgium/Luxembourg photos on the walls. Here's what I think the problem is: they are unclear as to what type of place they want to be. Sort of halfway slobby small-town run of the mill place, and sort of unique, upscale place. Makes for confusion and a less-than-great experience.

“Good food”
Reviewed 9 June 2013

Nothing fancy but quality food and great employees. At least 4 employees are from Deano's including the chef. They all left before Deano's closed.
Excellent prime rib special on Saturdays for $16.99. 8 different seafood menu items. Surprisingly, no pork on the menu.

Overall, just a nice place for dinner with reasonable prices.

“Excellent Food, especially fish, steak”
Reviewed 29 May 2013

They opened a few months ago we have been there by ourselves and have taken guests. The chef's special of the evening!-order. It is busy until 7:30 but they have great food. Order a drink at the bar order so your food is ready when you sit. This place used to be an old grocery store. Take the time to look at the photo's on the wall and enjoy your meal.

“Excellent food & service!!!”
Reviewed 13 April 2013

We have eaten here about 5 times now and every time we have come, we were very well satisfied!!! Excellent service, excellent food!!! Clean restaurant and bathroom was very clean as well. Staff are always very pleasant and the owners take the time to come to your table to see how everything is. I think that says a lot for a restaurant! Belgium is a quiet little town and The Belgium House just added a special touch to this town. It is a place for family and friends to get together, have a nice meal and meet a lot of nice people. Great job Belgium House & Staff!!! You get a AAA+++ from our family!!
