Strolling down Downie St. after a performance at the Avon Theater, we almost passed up Downie St. Burger. Stop! Go in! The best burgers ever! We barely made it. There were "Reservations!" At a burger joint? This ain't no burger joint. Locals and tourists alike know this place. So, make reservations or get there early.

We went to Downie Street for a meal just before attending a play at the theater across the street. The menu includes a large selection of craft beers, a number of varieties of hamburger, and some salads. The hamburger was excellent, with high quality beef and excellent side dishes. The salad was very large, with a lot of ingredients and... More

Have eaten here at least 3 times and have enjoyed their burgers, choice of 10-15 different burgers all dressed with something different on top, all priced equally within a dollar of each other. Burgers always juicy and big. Lots of hand cut fries. Service has always been very good and attentive. Small selection of mostly craft beers, local Black Swan... More

My wife and I went here for our anniversary dinner before a show at the festival. Food was fantastic. We had reservations so no wait for a seat. I definitely recommend this place for a good burger.

Service was subpar. Soup not very good. We sent it back. Grill cheese was just Kraft slices (bread was good though). Club sandwich was just okay. When presented with the bill, my 90 year old father asked if he could have a cup of tea. Server snatched the bill away very abruptly.

Only well-done burgers served due to Canadian law. Burger was OK but somewhat pricey Very convenient to the Avon theater.

My friend took me for lunch today. We had a lovely Sangria to start. I had the goats cheese burger and it was fabulous. My friend had the pulled pork. My soup was a spicy chicken and really good. Nice atmosphere. Lovely server. And cool (temperature wise).

I have been here several times, usually on weekdays, so no problem with long waits. A great variety of tasty burgs with nice beers to accompany.

I ordered take out as I was solo for dinner in town. I appreciate gourmet burgers and I thought this place would fit the bill. It's a little pricey, but caters to the local theatre crowd who are more price inelastic as we used to say in economics. I simply ordered the bacon cheeseburger which apparently some travel blog rated... More
