Love the food but too small!

The burgers and sides are delicious and the location is cool it too small. The bar should be on one floor and seating I the other.

Great burgers ! Tasty and well prepared. Grass fed beef. Lots of new items on the menu each time I come. Good place to hang with a friend or sweetheart. Outdoor seating when weather permits. Staff very attentive.

Not my favorite spot to eat but the burgers are good. Needs to change their menu as its been the same for all these years. New salads and appetizers need an overhaul. Service is decent. Parking is a pain.

through multiple visits we can confirm these are the best burgers in ct. The staff is attentive and knowledgeable. Truly the burgers are perfect. We prefer well done " no pink" which means "charred" at most places but not here. You get a great burger juicy and delicious. Through 3 visits we have seen excellent consistency.

We had a larger group walk in and we were seated promptly. This was not my first visit and I enjoyed it as much as the last time. Usually the place is quite busy in the evening so it was nice to get there for lunch when it was much quieter and relaxed. The food was good and the beer... More

I've been to all the burger places in West Hartford, and this one is modestly better than the rest. The burgers themselves are fine and come with lots of different topping packages, which is pretty much par for the course. The grilled chicken option is on the boring and dry side. The tuna burger, however, was surprisingly good. The tuna... More

Simple bar and burger joint. Food was very good, though a bit pricy, so you're paying for the quality. One of the best burgers either my wife or I have had in a long time.

The staff is generally friendly and helpful, sometimes non-attentive. The food and atmosphere is so great though that it makes up for the lack in service. My favorite place for sit down burgers in WeHa.

We stopped there after going for a hike in West Hartford. The selection of burgers is good, some vegan options. Nothing too fantastic, but works well for lunch. My burger had so much feta cheese and peppercorns, that it just tasted sour. The service was OK, they sort of checked on us sporadically, since the place was packed on Saturday... More

My favorite burger place in Connecticut (and possibly the world). The burgers are always tasty and I enjoy the old bar like atmosphere. It can occasionally be very noisy there but not always (the Plan B in Glastonbury is much louder). Plan B has a great selection of American Craft beers but it is not an overwhelming selection as in... More
