Local neighborhood bar does well

Always crowded, good food, good drinks, fresh ingredients. Bar serves lots of beers on tap, but I go for the cosmos. Service is excellent and always with a smile. Lack of parking in the neighborhood is the only down side.

The burgers here are amazing - I had a burger salad - which is essentially a cheese burger with bacon atop a salad with pickles on the side, fries, lettuce, tomatoes, etc with a special dressing similar to thousand island. It was really wonderful - normally I remove the bun anyway so I did not miss it at all. The... More

Whether you prefer the pretzel bun, lettuce or traditional they have a burger for you! I went with cheese & bacon with tater tots and my fiancé went for the Cuban with traditional fries. Delicious! And a craft beer or a spicy Bloody Mary and your lunch is complete. Worth the visit!

When this place opened we could not get enough. The burgers seemed to be better then even Max Burger in West Hartford which is a really terrific burger restaurant. The bourbon menu is extensive and we love bourbon. We really enjoy that part of Plan B quite a bit. But, the quality of the food has gone down while the... More

Went for a late lunch (no reservations accepted), told the wait would be 35 minutes (0nly 10 or so) (smart strategy by hostess)anyway very nice menu with lots of good choices. My order was perfect My husband asked fro pink and go well done however he enjoyed it anyway because it was so juicy.... More

We visited today. Four adults and three children. We ordered our food (all burgers). All meals were accurate except mine. The service was prompt. The food was pricey. But after admitting she'd gotten my order wrong- she didn't offer to fix it. It was off putting. In general, I find the food is tasty but pricey and the service just... More

Been here several times now and the burgers are always awesome. I do think it's a bit pricey but it's got a great location and I am sure they pay a premium for that as well. There is always a special but I tend to go with the bacon cheese or the baja burger. There is something for everyone here... More

The place has nothing to do with contraception. Even though I knew that, it was still hard to hear "Plan B" and not think about it. Regardless, I got the spicy burger (forget the name) and it was certainly spicy, and tasty. However, I'm of the mindset that you typically shouldn't need to spend more than about $8 on a... More

Went to Plan B for the first time last night and I already can't wait to go back! My burger was incredible. I got the bacon cheeseburger topped off with caramelized onions and garlic mayo... absolutely amazing. Burger was cooked to perfection and packed with flavor. The "fancy fries" served with the burger were pretty standard, I had to load... More

We visited on a Wednesday night and both the restaurant and bar area were very busy- so it was quite cramped. The bar is classic old Irish bar- big beer selection. Service was very good. The food is definitely American and is dominated by a wide selection of burgers and appetizers. Menu was a little light on the vegetarian offerings... More
