Change the menu

The bartenders, servers, and atmosphere are all good. I've never had a bad meal since the place has opened. I just wish that the menu would be updated or changed. It has been basically the same with little to no updates.

Had great burgers, drinks, fries and homemade chips. Small place with a wait, but worth it! Can't wait to go back again.

I was there for lunch with friends in May. I had the fish tacos and they were excellent. Both the service and the food are good quality and well presented.

The hamburger meat was exceptionally - this not a fancy or dumpy place - but it can be very noisy - their bar selections are sparce and they do have too few vodka brands - my wife had to change to wine.

So I ordered the tuna tacos and what I got was something a little too fishy in a wrap. The food was on the bland side as well. I was disappointed. Our waiter seemed a little preoccupied with other things and even came to our table with food on his face. I'm not sure if I would go back.

Meh. It was OK. Nothing was wrong. But the specialty is the hamburgers, and as such should have some flavor to the actual meat. It is basically the same meat patty for each specialty hamburger, smothered in the different toppings. Just an average burger place with better decor.

We found Restaurant 55 by chance and what a find! Butger was fresh made and cooked to perfection. I had the avocado burger and my wife had the fish tacos. Both excellent. Great beer selection and very friendly and helpful service. Will have to divert here again. Worth the trip.

This place has dynamite burgers! They are always fresh, good quality meat. They also definitely have the most creative and "most Delaware" special burgers. My personal special menu favorite is the apple scrapple burger. Also, don't forget to try some of their other amazing creations like their homemade chips with dip, fries, cupcakes, cheeseburger soup, fried pickles and the French... More

Delicious food and drink. Could be a wait on a Friday or Saturday or night. Craft beers and specialty burgers. Homemade cupcakes. My favorite meal is the Caesar Salad with Blackened Chicken.
