Great Specialty Burgers and a decent Beer selection!

Great place. Can get busy so hit it at an off hour. We like to sit at the bar but have often sat in the dinning room as well. Service at either has always been great.

As a burger fanatic, I'm fairly critical when someone says a place has a great burger. I'm happy to report that this place did not disappoint! Each burger was cooked to perfection, even the burger my friend got that was well-done was as juicy as my medium. Definitely going to make this place a regular go-to spot!

A fun place that is relaxed with great food. The beer menu has a lot of choices and the the burger menu has some fun twists on a traditional American dish!

Have enjoyed several meals there. Mostly I have the tuna burger...a good piece of tuna cooked to my choice with an excellent. Substitute the home made chips for the french fries.. If you have room ... try a cupcake. Beer choices superior

Had an excellent dinner here with visiting family. No one felt like a large meal and a fancy restaurant, and Restaurant 55 was perfect. An offshoot of one of our favorite seafood restaurants, it had long been recommended to us by neighbors. The burgers, toppings, beer selection were all excellent. And we loved the casual atmosphere and friendly service.

Lovely fish and chips with wonderful batter...my neighboring table recommended the fried anchovies as one of their favorites. Everything coming out of the kitchen looked delicious

Amazing flavorful burgers (cooked as ordered), hand cut fries, killer fresh chips with house made herb dip large enough for sharing and you can't forget creative cocktails and a long list of beer selections all served by efficient and friendly staff.Looking forward to my next visit!!

I ate here with my husband and really likes burgers. They were okay for the price. But I got upset when they put my straw in my drink for me right after putting some dirty dishes away! I don't think that's very sanitary!

I was told this place was the best but was very disappointed. The food was no better than your average bar/restaurant. The staff was not very friendly. The atmosphere was bland and dark. Overall the value was not great and we have found many places around town better.

Just had lunch and the black & blue burger exceeded expectations. The fries were killer as well. Extensive beer list both bottled and draft wish I could have had a few!
