we have eaten there quite often ant overall the food is good, the service efficient and the place is always busy, the manager keeps a close eye on things, so you are always well catered for. The wine list could do with an update, their list is a bit ordinary, might see if they will do byo. A good family... More

I come here off and on and every time I am simply blown away with how good the food is. The grass fed beef patties are so juicy and taste amazing. Godfathers is just the best burger place I have ever been too. Grass fed beef isn't cheap either, but their prices are still great! Owner is nice and the... More

My wife and I eat here regularly and are never disappointed. Sure it’s a burger restaurant with table service. But if you’re salivating for a gourmet burger this is the spot. Yea you can get a good regular burger at Five Guys or In And Out, but neither compares to the quality or the ambiance of the Godfather’s. The two... More

The title says it all. In talking to the owner, it is clear that the reason the burgers here are so good is because of the quality of the beef. The only downside to eating here is that you won't want to have a lesser burger anywhere else because you now notice more fully what good ground beef should taste... More

Best in the west, Reg? You're making us blush! When it comes to beef, it sounds like you really know your stuff, so we're happy to hear you were so impressed with the quality of ours. Looking forward to welcoming you back soon! All the best, Mike More

Went here with a group of 20+ from work. Given the number of people all at one table in a pretty small restaurant they coped admirably. Great selection of burgers, cooked to your liking...which you don't often get the opportunity from where I come from. I settled on a medium rare with cheese and pepperoni. Great taste , burger juices... More

If there could be one word to describe us, it's definitely burgerlicious! Happy to know you and your group loved what we're all about. We're not fancy, just a nice place that makes a great burger. Glad your medium rare with cheese and pepperoni could hit the spot. Hope you come back for more soon! Take care, Mike More

Thanks for pointing out that we have grass-fed beef, Josh! Not sure if you know, but it all comes from within 30 miles, too. Glad you're a fan! Hope to see you next time you make it up the coast. All the best, Mike More

Try this place you will not be sorry, friendly service, great food, good local beer. We eat here at least once a month, my husband and I usually share a burger and a salad.

their Philly Cheesesteak burger, made with ground rib eye is TDF. All super fresh ingredients, artisan buns.... and even their salads are primo. and check out their hot wings - best I've tasted - spicy hot, but not overly greasy.
