The food is always consistent and tasty, the service was friendly and quick. I recommend to try a different burger each time you come, they are all good even the out of norm ones.

First time we came here, I got very sick. But the food was so damn good I wasn't willing to let my weak lack of grease handling stomach ruin it, so we went back. And now we go back monthly. Always amazing food, service is always prompt. My only recommendation would be to turn down the music, the acoustics in... More

So, it wasn't a visit, it was a Just Eat delivery and it was amazing. The food arrived fresh and warm in paper containers that didn't leave eve tying drowned in condensation. The burgers were meaty and the toppings plentiful. Fries and onion rings travelled very well. Can't say enough good things about this meal. I'm still stuffed. Could feed... More

Had lunch here with a friend and was very satisfied with the burger. Mine had beef brisket and bacon which tasted great. The onion rings were good as well and I liked the selection of dipping sauces for the sides. Price was a bit high but it was good quality.

Their strength is the selection of gourmet topping combinations. The taste was 3/5. Patties are good, but I've had juicier patties with more flavour elsewhere. Toppings are high quality. The price was a bit too high to call it a good value. About $15 for a burger with a side. I had the onion rings which I liked a lot.... More

Came here on the weekend with a large group of friends, and received fantastic service from the young lady who took care of us (I'm sorry, I wish I had gotten her name!) She did an excellent job of walking us through the menu, and providing recommendations off of the menu. Their menu of burgers is HUGE, so can be... More

Stop in during a rain event before the crowds formed! Great burgers, enjoyed the turkey and chicken breast. Excellent service all around. Had an Oreos milkshake....humongous!

I've eaten here many times and it's always excellent service and food. The beechhouse sauce and spicy chips are my fave with the crappy tire turkey burger. I love that I can choose my type of patty. This place never disappoints and anyone I take there loves it too. My only suggestion is on a super hot day ...close the... More
