It's Pretty Good

I like that they make a burger and you get it the way they make it…pick something off if you don't like it. However, it is probably off-putting to many. We were there early on Sunday night so it was a great, relaxed environment and the service was exceptional. The beer selections were amazing. I... read more

We went on the recommendation of a friend because the burger here was food network worthy. Dislikes were that you order at the bar and get a number on your table. The inside while very cool was so noisy we sat outside which was nice ...sorry but we all like ketchup with our fries...bring your own...The Burger said it had... More

This place was great. There is a really great atmosphere here. There's great outdoor seating too. Really huge tables outside for big parties, which is great. There is a smallish food menu, but all of it wonderful. My friends and I ordered a few dishes and shared them and they were all great. I think you could probably get anything... More

Excellent food, including a juicy skirt steak, a very good smoked eel, excellent thin cut fries, nice salads. In the end everything we had was really good. Large selection of beers, nice casual place, perfect to meet friends. Very noisy inside, but nice tables outside. You need to order and pay for you food at the counter, and they will... More

No ketchup with your fries. They serve their burgers one way and you take it or leave it. Definitely not worth the hype or the price!

Met up with friends here for some drinks after work. Excellent beer selection. Apps were really good too. Nice outdoor seating and plenty of parking. Have been several times to meet up with friends when I'm in town. Will likely visit again!

Really great burgers and beer in a trendy setting. If you want to be seen and not heard, this is the place. Loud, loud, loud. Went there on a Friday night. It was wall to wall people. The bartenders are great once you crawl over bodies to get to them. They're very knowledgeable about the beers, I got great recommendations.... More

Fantastic tap and bottle list with knowledgeable staff to guide you through their offerings. The burger is to die for and remember no substitutions.

Great burger, good fries. Menu limited. Huge selection of beer, but areas of eating so dark u cannot read the menu is a negative. Ok.

WHat more do i say than the title... They ID at the door, casual attire and outdoor seating. Free Valet parking at the moment as their lot seems to be under construction! The burger is always great but I love their smaller bites as they change often enough to keep you ordering a mix!
