Felt totally unwelcomed when we arrived. Waiter and waitress and owner were rude! Medium burgers were raw food was mediocre at best. I won't go back.

We were celebrating an occasion and told them Head of time...yet were treated rudely and as if we were unimportant. Slow kitchen service...burgers definitely undercooked...bloody medium. Never will return to this small, loud music restaurant! They need to to listen to their clientele...or they won't survive! Too loud.....and rude, unfriendly waiters....they need to get a life!

We had burgers that were quite large and delicious. Staff was friendly and received good service. The restaurant was always full as the... More

We were in town for one night, and decided to check out reviews of restaurants for a suggestion. We saw this was #1 in town, and thought ok, we'll try it! Small venue for sure, and it probably isn't good for families BUT this really isn't a Red Robin kind of place. One of us had the Hot Pants burger,... More

I was very prepared for my trip to the Indiana Dunes. This restaurant was our first pick because if the high reviews. We walked in with our 15 month old and 4 year old. We were given the last open table Monday night. When we got to the table we asked for a high chair. The server shrugged his shoulders... More

After a day at the beach, this was the perfect food and atmosphere to end the day. Service was tremendous. The entire family enjoyed the experience.

A girlfriend and I stopped here heading home after a road trip, and absolutely fell in love with this place! we had to wait thirty minutes to get in but it was so worth it. I got the house salad with grilled chicken, and my friend got a burger. I am not a salad person too much, but I was... More

My husband and I found this adorable little burger place and decided to give it a try for date night. We started off with the hummus which was delicious. I then got a burger with gouda cheese, BBQ sauce, and guacamole while my husband got a spicy burger with onion rings. Now I am pretty picky when it comes to... More
