Expanded menu now gives you chicken and seafood options. Wonderful burgers and love the sweet potato fries. Service can be slow. Go early to get a seat without waiting.

All on the menu is excellent - from burgers to salmon to crab cakes! AND then the garlic fries. Can't beat it for food and atmosphere.

The restaurant is noisy and small. We mostly get take out. On take out orders be sure to check food before you go. They are not so good about making sure you get what you ordered.

We had dinner here with out of town friends in Belmont . They were traveling with five kids an we figured this place is perfect since kids/teens won't have a problem ordering their dinner . The place is not huge and the tables are very close to each other. We were a party of 12. The restaurant pays homage to... More

This is the place to go for great burgers. My personal fav: the Director's Cut with blue cheese. Fries and onion rings like I like them: nice and crisp. Fun ambience (movie stills slowly displayed on flat screens throughout. Very small place. Gets too crowded at peak times, making conversation difficult, with some 2-person tables practically on top of the... More

Atmosphere was interesting, food was good and a good size portion. Better than the average fast food place. Would give it another go.

Why ordinary? Well, it takes a lot to make a burger place stand out. Was the burger good, yes, but I won't remember it a week from now. Was the service great - no. Was the decor special - no, glaring light fittings, random film memorabilia and a wobbling table. Worst thing was that 30 minutes after ordering and asking... More

That's why we use locally sourced ingredients and get fresh beef in each day. Of course, I always appreciate any and all feedback, so thanks for taking a few moments to let me know about your experience. I... More

Great gourmet burger joint. Burgers are large, with a good selection of protein, styles, add-ons and sides. I particularly like their spicy options. Nice atmosphere, great lunch destination with friends. No dedicated parking but plenty nearby. Not as customizable as some gourmet joints, but what they do, they do well.
