Popped into grab food to go. While in the shopping center, it's located somewhat hidden in the back, and I actually didn't even know they were here. Walked in great ambience, love the roll up doors, the style is nice. Ordered it my way, and it was about 10 minutes but that says fresh because they were not busy when... More

This is a burger joint/beer joint/California menu place in a relatively new strip mall in Marina del Rey looking to fit into a market niche. Not really high-end and not in-n-out burger either.

Came here during my search for vegan food in MdR. Loved the build your own burger menu and the abundance of options. The resulting food was amazing - more like a gourmet burger (at a reasonable price) than 'diner style' food. Very friendly staff! Now this is one of my staples whenever I go to MdR.

This place has good choices for burgers and all of them are good. I would recommend something with the Korean BBQ. The place is also very nice and has good onion strings.

Order the variety of pre-planned burgers or make your own. First night we tried "build it yourself" approach was we were delighted. Excellent beef.

Burgers anyway you want them. I'm picky. You write your own order, and they serve it exactly as ordered. These are healthy burgers with antibiotic and hormone free meat. Great bun, beer, and wine selection. No fast food here.

The devices was fast and friendly and the burger was great - tasty and cooked to order. Crispy fries. Convenient location off of Lincoln and easy parking.

The Counter is great place to get a "designer" burger with some interesting twists. You can also build your own burger from a wide variety of different items on the menu. Fun place to go for a fun, casual meal!
