Best burgers in town!

Best burgers in town. I love the Humpty-Dumpty with the egg on top. The best feature is the home-made chips, made especially for your own order. You can see the potato being peeled and chipped, then deep-fried for your order. I order the Buffalo Bleu chips with Buffalo sauce and Bleu Cheese... read more

First time trying this place. The burgers and freshly cut fries were very good. Broad beer selection and knowledgeable bartenders. Excellent service.

J Like Beers have great options for burgers and beers. Great atmosphere with friendly staff. When it is nice outside is is wonderful to be outside eating their burger and drinking beer. They have so many varieties of beer to choose from.

great place to be with your friends on friday nights and weekends after soaking in the office dealing with numbers and difficult people. its a bit noisy and quite dark inside. sometimes you have to wait in line to get a seat. no lounge sofa and setting arrangement on stools by the bar only. great beer. great burger. reasonable price....

I have been to this place many times and have always had good food and very good service. The staff is very knowledgeable about the beers that they have. As far as the burgers you can't go wrong with the Humpty Dumpty. I'll be back.

I've been here several times for lunch and a few beers; it's always a treat. Tasty pub fare with some flair - the Humpty Dumpty is my go-to, as a delicious breakfast burger. Great service in my experience, with friendly and helpful staff who know more about beer than most pubs. The atmosphere works well to for what it is.... More

Great little burger place with one page of food and ten pages of beer! Staff is wonderful, well trained and knowledgeable. Burgers were great and fries were cooked perfectly. The beer menu has anything you could ever want and more, changes seasonally. Can't wait to go back!

Excellent staff willing to help you choose/sample from one of the best cold beer selections in Forks. I prefer the fresh cut chips over the fries however both are excellent. The Humpty Dumpty has been my favorite burger thus far. Food comes piping hot in a matter of minutes. Do to a limited menu & wine selection I have not... More
