If you are looking for a great meal with great service, check out this place. Affordable and great, great service! The seating on the patio leaves a lot to be desired. The tables are awkward for your feet and the chairs are uncomfortable. We suggest sitting inside. Enjoy!

We had tickets for a 2 p.m. matinee at the Avon theatre, arrived about 1 p.m. wanting a quick soup and sandwich. Waited a bit, more than we though necessary, given the one waitress serving outdoors was constantly bustling by, to be seated on the vary narrow, and crowded, outdoor seating. We waited a lot more before out orders were... More

This restaurant is certainly convenient to the Avon Theatre which is right across the street. They serve burgers with every conceivable combination of toppings and sauces. My only complaint was that my burger was over-cooked, but on the other hand, I had not specified tat I prefer it medium rare. My bad. We would return.

As Festival members my wife and I have visited Stratford three or four times a year for at least a decade. Frequently we eat at Downie Street Burger - especially if seeing a play at the Avon Theatre which is next. This is not fast food so don't expect McDonald's prices. Do expect fresh, made to order burgers on a... More

Stopped here for a late lunch with my teen daughter on a Thursday. We started with the traditional poutine and it was good. first time having it so we have nothing to compare it too. For our meal we had a prime cheeseburger and the Greek wrap - both delicious. Our server was very nice and attentive. On a side... More

Stopped off at Downie Street Burger...to have a burger....and we were not disappointed. My friend had been there before and said it was delicious. She was not mistaken. We ordered the burger with sweet potato fries and a large greek salad. We ended up splitting all of our selections. The burger was cooked properly and very tasteful. Excellent service and... More

We love Downie Street Burger! The staff and owners are excellent! The food is fresh, I can pick my toppings, or they have a daily special, the fries are excellent & the onion rings even better. They have Okanagan on tap, and a selection of bottles. Good food is worth the wait.

I would like to give this restaurant a higher rating due to the friendliness of their staff. All were very nice and accommodating. Unfortunately, the food simply doesn't stack up. We had three in our party, and all of us had a hamburger or cheeseburger. The burgers were overcooked, very thin, and simply lacked flavor. The toppings were extremely generous... More

The sandwiches were yummy & bountiful, generous enough for a midnight snack ... Make reservations in advance, very popular, kid friendly too.

We went to see a show in Stratford at the Festival Theatre with a bus group. My sister in law, her friend and myself only had a limited time for lunch and walked down Downie Street as we were told to visit this place. I ordered a wrap and Ice tea - (no fries, no salad) and with tip this... More
