I LOVE these hand made, fall apart-in-your-mouth, black bean burger that you can substitute in most of their sandwiches! YUM! The regular beef burger are my family's favorites! They also have the BEST selection of wines and beers. The ONLY drawback is the size of the restaurant. This is not the restaurant for large family parties, is "tight" seating and... More

We have been to Octave Grill twice now - once as a couple and again with a couple of our adult children. Both times, the experience has been terrific. Their burgers are fabulous, whether classic - as my husband likes them - or gourmet - as I like them. Their Figgy Piggy Burger is a wonderful treat. My husband had... More

I cant say enough great things about Octave.If you happen to be in Chesterton this is a must. I always get the buff which is beyond amazing. It has a little bit of blue cheese plus fries on top. There lavender gin and tonic is out of this world. Most of the time we also split a dessert. All of... More

It's my 5th time here since discovering this fall...tried everything from the Wisconsin burger, to jambalaya, to the fish and chips. Last night was this pork masterpiece of a sandwich...pulled pork, sliced brats, ham, and bacon on a pretzel roll. All blended together perfectly! Each time I leave there, I say that's the best thing ever! I love how the... More

Great burgers (especially the black bean burger) and great beer. It's a small place, so there's sometimes a wait, but it's worth it.

Great burgers! The beef makes it. They have lots of trending styling and toppings and they are all good. I had the tacos tots and wasn't that impressed, it was tots with a spoonful of sour cream and guacamole. The burger are all great though and the have a large selection of local craft beers. There perch fish cakes are... More

This is delicious. It Is a diamond in the rough. We ate here during a snow storm and the place was at capacity. The place itself is teeny tiny...but the atmosphere is warm and inviting. And when you taste the food, you forget about the tight squeeze.

I have been going to Octave Grill since they opened. There isn't anything on their menu I wouldn't order. The best burgers I have ever had and everything on their menu is amazing.

This is a tiny little restaurant that features grass fed beef and serves a big burger that looks like the old pictures of hamburgers stacked so high. It is expensive, and does not open until 4:00PM. But it is one of the best hamburgers you will ever eat
