You can have a really great evening here, with great food, drinks and service. I know the whole menu from excellent burgers, steaks, club sandwiches to salads. Everything is freshly prepared and the place is one of the few owner-managed restaurants. It's on a street...parallel to the Reeperbahn, where there's a lot of hype but no quality. I regularly meet other locals from Hamburg and St Pauli here.More

The best burger restaurant in town, I am a local and I regularly visit it. And I really like the very friendly staff, good music and food & drinks quality. And the shop is owner-managed and doesn't belong to a large chain like the other...food restaurants in St PauliMore

I had heard good things about The Bird in Berlin, so I decided to give this one, in Hamburg, a go. The burger was ordered and my expectations were high. The waiter advised me to go for medium done, and so I did. The appearance...of the food was somewhat ordinary and did not really stand out from what you make yourself at home. And the tast was also rather ordinary. The burger was way too little done, and after a few bites, it disintegrated and looked rather bad. The fries were soft and did not taste very much at all. Some salt would have helped. I did not finish the food and pushed the remains aside. When the waiter were cleaning the table, he asked how it was. He ignored my discrete complaint and just said "great"! His reaction was really unprofessional uninspired. All in all: not worth it!More

I had googled "Best Chicken Wings in Hamburg" and this place came up a lot so decided to try it. The wings were AMAZING! Absolutely caked in sauce (a positive) and a nice blue cheese dressing (a necessity for any good wings). The fries were...delicious too. I love the little crispy bit. The staff were polite and friendly and the atmosphere was good.More

the burger is quite a portion itself but its like so dominant you feel there is nothing else to taste on the dish except the meat. We were served quite late, everything was just dissapointing and way below expectations. no way to visit the place...againMore

Came here after a recommendation from a bar owner on the Reeperbahn and ah could not be more correct! Fabulous place, great atmosphere, and that’s even before the food! We have chicken starters.. wings and strips, the wings came hot enough to melt plastic in...a great way! Strips came with a soothing honey mustard dip I’ve been waiting for all my life! Scrumptious! The mains were steaks and in trepidation I agreed to a medium well done slab of cow, stipulating no blood on my plate... what o got was as good a steak I’ve eaten anywhere in the planet, and I get around a bit!!! Succulent, juicy without the blood a shudder at, this was literally a mouth watering meat melt with every forkful! Never tasted anything like it and would urge any meat lover coming to Hamburg to reward yourself and come to this place! Guaranteed not to disappoint (unless you’re used to TGI Fridays) with great staff, great vibe and sooo please I’m coming back to Hamburg for this place alone! Fabulous!More

Can’t praise this place enough, my burger was wonderful and the crack sauce is aptly named, my son had a club sandwich that was bigger than his head! Great beer and staff were really friendly and helpful, next time I’m in Hamburg this will be...my 1st choice for food.More

Great burgers with huge portion of perfectly done beef. I was not impressed with the mushrooms - they soaked so much fat. Apart from that - I loved it. Very nice service.

Positives: -A generous meat patty -This line on their menu: Try to eat the damn burger with your hands Negatives: -Burger patties (one medium, one well done) were tasteless -Discourage you from ordering a burger well done. I am eating the burger, I am paying,...therefore I decide how I want it cooked thank you very much. -My son loves fries, but he refused to eat these. They lacked salt & were too dark. From a distance I thought they were sweet potato fries. -The hot wings were ok. The sauce was too thick & not similar in taste to the buffalo wing sauce from NY. -Burgers are small because they use English muffins as burger buns This place certainly doesn't live up to the hype it boosts about on its website. Why some people consider them to serve up some of the best burgers in Hamburg is beyond me. They have probably never traveled to the United States and eaten a truly outstanding burger.More

The burger bun was definitely not what we expected, similar to those you probably know from the McDonalds breakfast menu. We were missing some nice brioche buns. However, the fries where quite good. The knives were totally blunt and more or less useless and the...interior had some room for improvement. However, the property is nice and is probably offering some nice outside seating areas during summer.More

Great Burger. I went to a place called Peter Pane my first day in Hamburg and this place blows it out the water. Fresh Ingredients, Fresh Beef, Great combinations, very good burger. The only thing I didn't care for was the long wait for our...food, but the place was crowded and understandably so. I recommend this place if you want a Hamburger in Hamburg!More

If you are a fan of 'American style' burgers, then the 'Bird' is a place for you! this place located in the world famous suburb of St. Pauli, it's decoration is simple and minimal, but i guess that almost no one visits this restaurant for...it' s indoor beauty! the choices for a big, tasty, juicy burger are too many, the varieties of drinks and siders are also rich, the staff is helpful, some plates are huge and some not, the prices are a little bit expensive and i think that a reservation is mecessary because the 'Bird' is very often full of people!More
