Amazing.

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

Tallgrass Beef burger is a must, enjoying great Midwest beers on tap! Cosy place and warm service. Just for dinner.

Grass fed beef, great quality food and service! Worth the wait, I promise! Make sure to try the burger of the month, I have it every month and it's always a good surprise!

I had heard so many great things about the burgers, I was excited to try it. The restaurant is small and cramped. Music was extremely loud. Server was friendly, but took a long time to come to the table. We ordered the perch cake appetizer which was pricey for 2 small cakes, but tasty. I built my own burger with... More

One of the great things about Octave is the ever changing specials, desserts, and beer choices. Fantastic taste tempters from start to finish and great service as well. Never had bad service, never had grumpy wait staff, always greeted at the door and thanked as we leave.

This place is tiny but don't mistake it for being weak in selection. Grass-fed beef burgers are on the top of the menu and they offer some great variety in flavor.
