A friend and I popped in here before seeing a show at the Avon Theatre and the food was delicious!! I had a burger with goat cheese and roasted red peppers and my friend had a classic cheese burger with bacon. The server understood our time constraint as we had theatre tickets. The food was fast, fresh and delicious. I... More

A group of my husband's co-workers gather to celebrate their friendships that go beyond the place they were employed. Sometimes I tag along. So they all picked Downie Street Burgers to support one of their own who bought back this restaurant. Not only could they not stop raving about how great the food was, they are telling everyone else too.... More

You will get a tasty burger and decent service but you'll pay for it in time and money. Not sure it's worth the effort on the customer's part. It is, after all, just a burger and fries.

We stumbled across this one by chance. The fine dining we had hoped to enjoy during our visit was not available (we failed t make an advance reservation). Downie Street Burger delivered in spades!!! Lovely pub-like setting with an AMAZING burger menu. I enjoyed the Cheese curd and bacon stuffed burger on a fresh bun with a side of poutine.... More

A great place with good atmosphere and great service. The food was amazing and we were treated like they really wanted to serve us. I will be returning!

I don't crave hamburgers very often but I've been thinking about them lately and this one hit the spot. They have a lot of different hamburgers or you can do what I did and "make your own". It had grilled onions, grilled pineapple, avocado, and a raspberry lime salsa that was great. They also have veggies burgers or can serve... More

You will not be disappointed if you are craving a good burger and fries. Both are great. I love the Portobello burger with no meat.

We visit Stratford once or twice each summer, and try many of their restaurants. This summer, we decided to try Downie Street Burgers, and made a reservation for 6 p.m. We arrived before 6 on a slow night - the restaurant was less than 1/2 full. All 4 of us ordered the same burger. We waited 1/2 hour. We waited... More

Heading to the theatre, we had just enough time for a bite to eat. The wait staff-Deirdre was very welcoming and they accommodate us at a very busy time. There was a wait for the actual meal, so having an appetizer is a good idea. Since we were in Stratford for the play, the meal wasn't intended to be the... More

I'm not in the habit of of writing bad reviews but this place was pretty terrible... Soggy very sweet burger with transparent tomatoes, regular black olives on a greek salad, skimped on all the subpart (out of the bag) ingredients... and the waitress shorted me $2 (It seemed intentional because of how it was given but I'll give her the...
