Looked up places to eat before a business trip to Stratford. After reading things about this place I had to try. It was nice but nothing special, especially for the price.

While I hear the burgers are good (two other restos locally have better), the offerings for non-burger folk are limited. So perhaps my review shouldn't count, but I think nowadays, non-burger offerings should not be that challenging.

From the friendly greeting to the excellent food to the great music (at just the right volume and "mood"), this is one terrific place for lunch or dinner. The burgers are substantial and the special is always interesting and inviting (and changing). It is well worth repeat visits! Enjoy.

The burgers at this restaurant are to die for. I normally can not eat a whole burger in a restaurant but the buns on these burgers are so light that I do not have a problem. I like the fact that the offering is different depending on the season. For example they had a special burger for the holiday season.... More

Truly the best burger I've ever had in my life! \My wife said the same thing about her burger too! The meat was tender and juicy though well-cooked. I had the Love Goat Burger with goat cheese and peppercorn crusted burger and it was awesome! The bun was soft and lightly toasted. A nice touch! The onion rings were huge... More

The service here is always amazing as long as Nancy is there and the burgers are amazing. And the drinks are always ice cold.

A second time visit to this establishment and was great as the first time....quality burger, great fries and onion rings. Nice combination of ingredients available on the specialty burgers. Nice selection of Ontario wines and local beers. Great friendly service.

Loved this place. We stopped here on our last day in town and were not disappointed. Although it was busy as the theatre had just let out, the service was great and we did not have to wait. The food was awesome...loved the burger and onion rings. I would definitely recommend this restuarant and hope to go back someday.

My local parents took myself and my husband touting it as the best burger ever. They did not lie! Juicy, tons of toppings to choose from and perfect bun to meat ratio all "best burgers" must have. Super amazing servers and food was delivered fast, but have a hot chocolate to start while you wait! 10/10 will go every time... More

They have the best atmosphere along with the best tasting burgers, gourmet. I had the Brie Burger which was brought back by popular demand. It was char-grilled prime rib burger with red pepper chutney, granny smith apples and brie cheese on an awesome bun. The sweet potato fries were yummy too. When in Stratford you MUST stop here.......
