Very happening place as a neighborhood restaurant in Halifax. Burger was delicious and tasty. Vanilla milkshake was good. Corn chowder was definitely a plus. If you are in the neighborhood, stop by and try their burgers, you will not be disappointed. Good customer service too.

The waitress was the rudest woman I have ever encountered. I was picking food up and she threw it on the table and walked away. I was so disappointed as I heard great things about this place, but I could never go back after that.

Had the famous Peanut Butter Burger and it's as good as advertised. The burger itself is tasty so that's a good thing. We also ordered the Mushroom Burger and the Rocket Swiss Burger. The fries were pretty good, too! Washed it all down with some...milkshakes. The place was packed but we didn't wait too long for a table. Service was crisp and efficient, with servers who were attentive, pleasant and quick with the recommendations. Look forward to going back!More

We are so happy we discovered this place today. We went in with four adults and three kids.. our server switched the tv rigth away to cartoons for them. Attentive friendly service, suggesting the amazing milkshakes, he even personally split it for the little ones....It was hard to pick from the menu, because there are so many amazing and unique options all for an affordable price. We had a small issue, which the staff went above and beyond what we were even expected, and they gave us a gift card so we are forunate to have a good reason to go back as soon as possible. I had the cajun chicken sandwich, darrels cajun sauce was amazing. I hope to try it again sometime, but I am looking forward to trying other menu items. Thank you to our server and staff and kitchen staff. My apologies on the soup on the ground from the little one. Cant wait to go back.More

This place is the epitome of consistency! We hit this joint up when we want a burger and we are not looking for a new adventure. Every time we have been here it has been bang on, no issues and tasty, also they do the...bacon right for their burgers! I do think it is a bit expensive, but it’s right on that cusp, however on Mondays you can get buy one get on half off and that is almost a for sure night out! The only issue is the lamb burger is not available for this promo, which I think is silly, the cost is about the same on the menu... but I’d like to see it there. It’s been around for years for a reason!More

Overall, I appreciate the quality of this restaurant. I do find the food to be somewhat hit or miss. Some days it tastes great, and then another day, the same order is not consistent and is off somehow, compared to what I was expecting. If...you are okay with waiting 30-35 minutes for lunch it's okay. Service is polite and establishment is clean. Also, lunch can easily come to over $50 for two people for burger and fries, plus beverage, plus tax. So it is on the expensive side in terms of value. Last time I was there, the meal was not exceptional, burnt overcooked fries, and very thin portions in burger ingredients.More

We came here when it reopened after Covid. We ordered burgers and fries and a milkshake. I don't really understand what the hype is all about, as the burgers we had were just average. I've eaten at many burger places and I just can't figure...out what people are seeing that I don't. Don't get me wrong, it was good, but definitely not 'great.' The best part was the milkshake. I don't know if we will return just due to the sheer volume of restaurants in Halifax.More

I don’t believe they do. But you can usually find a seat within a few minutes.
