Great burgers and an extensive list of beers. The sweet potato fries are fantastic. The service is friendly and efficient.

I didn't know what to expect when a couple of people from my beer group mentioned that they wanted to get a burger after a few drinks, but I was curious. Ended up being the right choice to make. Great Burger in the heart of New Haven.

Came in for lunch, since we were staying at the Omni across the street. The burgers were good and sweet potato fries were even better. The also had a large choice of beers on the menu and more choices were listed as daily special. Service farely good.

If you are looking for a burger, this is the place to go. Not only they have excellent burger options (among which the awesome Bison Burger and the NY Steakhouse Burger), but they try to have local options as much as possible (like the cola soda they serve, which is really good). Also, they serve a tasting of beers, which... More

So many beers to choose from, so many burgers to try, I couldn't even think about the other great looking menu items. Still dreaming about the hamburger rolls and onion crisps on my burger. Great vibe and art work on the walls, cant wait to go back.

I thought this was one of the best meals I had in New Haven and it had an inviting and casual atmosphere. The craft beer menu had a couple of dozen fun beers on it also.

Had lunch twice at Prime 16 on our last visit to New Haven and was not disappointed. The organic bloody mary's are the best in town. Savory and spicey. The chicken wings were perfectly cooked, crisply with a spicey buffalo sauce. The cajun patty melt was also very good with fried onions, melted cheese, bacon and a spicey mayonaise sauce.... More

Great burgers here! Lots of varieties and options. It's a small place, though, and it can get VERY loud, so be warned. I don't drink, but my friends also love the wide selection of craft beers available.
