I ordered for lunch pick up. I got to the restaurant and had to stand and wait for 10 minutes. There were only about 8 - 10 people in the entire dining area. In which 4 was this particular waitress. The burger was already cold. The milkshake was made when I got there which isn't a big issue, but I... More

Group of 5 for lunch. No one to greet you or seat you. Groups standing around in front with no idea whether to seat themselves or not. Server did not return for drink refills on hot day. Floor and tables dirty. Appetizers were good, as was burger, but no one asked us how we wanted the 5 burgers cooked. They... More

We treat our selves to Kirby Gs. Good fun place a little pricey but service and food are good. Can get loud at times but over all good. Lots of old memorabilia rock n roll artists on the wall. Has that soda fountain fifties feel.

I took my beer tour here on the Fourth of July. My wife and I have been here many times and i guess considered a regular. I took 14 here for food and drinks, and we were out in about an hours time. Good timely service. Everyone enjoyed the local beers, and the food. Thanks

I have to say I was surprised. I expected good but got better. The decor was fitting and the food was just off the charts. Exceptional burgers and the best of side orders. Plus the service was exceptionally nice and attentive without being a pest. Hats off to Liberty (our waitress), you should do well.

I have been eating there since they opened. I still eat there once a week. Try The Duke or the Joltin Joe Hamburger. The Jerry Lee steak sandwich is also good. The staff is very friendly and helpful.

Completely disappointed with our food, service and the music on this Friday night. First, our 1/3 pound hamburgers were a shock when we saw them....small, dry and not even close to any picture on this site. $7.25 just for the hamburger, garden and a pickle? (fries were extra). We ate our dinner, and was still hungry.....for $23.00. Sat in the... More

I came here unexpected, I was in the area to get my wife jewelry repair and asked for any restaurant around the area and they brought up KirbyG's. I am thankful that they did, the place has a retro look to it, the waiters were great and really respectful and it plays all of the old school jams from the... More
