First time visit here as we were looking for lunch someplace that was quick and relatively inexpensive. So we ended up here. There menu is essentially all burgers, but lots of variety to choose from. Food is good and quite plentiful. Both fries and onion rings are cooked well done so if you don't like that, then you might want... More

Had pre-theatre lunch - the waitress recommended the Black Swan burger with bacon jam. Sounded different and interesting so I gave it a shot. Tasty and very filling, along with a mountain-sized serving of onion rings. Not cheap but good for a pre-theatre treat.

If you are at a play at the Avon Theatre this restaurant is a good place to stop before or after a play. Uncomplicated menu with alcohol beverages

My companions and I visit Stratford several times each year to enjoy the Shakespeare Festival. We attempt to try a new or different restaurant each time we are there. We had been to this restaurant in the past and have had enjoyable meals each time we've been. This time we chose to come here as we were under a time... More

I stopped by here after seeing a play at the Stratford Festival this past weekend and was really happy with it. The servers were very attentive and checked in with me often. Most of the menu items are fairly expensive, but the food itself was great - I had the Blues Burger and sweet potato fries. It's very close to... More

My wife and I saw a Play at the Avon Theater and had scoped out the Downie Street Burger before the show. As we looked at the menu a woman seated outside said they had the best burgers in Ontario so we thought we would try it. After the show we were seated quickly and ordered one of their "black...

Went for the "best burger" in town. My dinner mates enjoyed their burgers and salads. Myself, love the idea of a burger with mushrooms, especially portabello. Well, I made the mistake of ordering the Portello mushroom burger and realized afterwards it didn't come with a burger. Entirely my mistake. Staff was friendly and attentive. The location of the restaurant is... More

My boyfriend and I went to dinner here because it was right next door to our hotel. It was an overall average experience. The food was good, but a little pricey, and the service was decent but we had to flag someone down twice to get our drinks refilled, and no one came by to ask how the food was.... More

My family and I went for dinner the other night. There was my husband, my son age 14, my daughter age 11 and myself. The place itself was tastefully decorated and clean. I have to admit as soon as I opened the menu I wanted to get up and leave. The prices were very high. 12 dollars for a starter... More
