“Best burgers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013

This is our favorite burger place. They have a huge selection of burgers. Everyone that we have had has been great. We like the atmosphere. Each booth has it's own T.V. The service has always been good. When we're looking for a good burger, this is our first choice.

“Average food, great dessert”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2013

On a recent visit, most of the food my wife and I had was good, but not exceptional. We did, however a piece of Key Lime pie to split. HEAVENLY!

“Cool Hangout”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

This place is cool. We liked how each table has its own tv in the back area. Long bar with a nice selection of craft beer. We both ate a burger...really tasty and large. The pencil fries and sweet potato fries were cooked perfectly. Nice variety of upscale bar/pub food....cant wait to go back and try other dishes! Waiter was nice. Poutine fries are coming to the menu in a few weeks....awesome!

“Must try”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013 via mobile

Located out of the way but worth the trek. Four of us tried different burgers. The texmelt was super. The bbq sauce and carmelize onions along with the pretzel bun blended well. The winoburger had good flavor. There was one burger ordered that had to much heat . We had to remove some peppers to get any taste. The one with the pineapple was good. The macho tots were very good. Service was average. The waitress was not checking back with us. When we asked for something it seem to take a long time for her to bring to us. No beer list to order a beer from. Nice place to try.

“Favorite burgers in Saint Pete!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013

This little place has become one of our fast favorites- The atmosphere, the staff and food all keep you coming back. Giant TV's at the bar for catching baseball and hockey, Phil Esposito's hockey gear on the wall, it feels just right, Everyone is friendly, but not on top of you. The food is AMAZING. The Demi God and bacon cheese burgers are great- So are the TATER TOTS & the cucumber salad. If you are in town, this is a must!
