The Trappe Door has a Belgian menu, with everything from salmon burgers to beer sorbet, as well as pastas and ribs. And, of course, Belgian waffles. But they're in this category for their beer menu which is made exclusively of Belgian beers. A novice might be intimidated, but one just has to ask the barkeep or server for a recommendation. The Trappe Door is located under Barley's and owned by the same people.
