This place was amazing! We went around 5pm and it was pretty empty so we got seated fast and service was fast. My husband got a Black Hog Hog Water beer on tap and he said it was one of the best he's ever had. They have a ton of burgers to choose from and it seems like that is... More

On a recommendation from a friend I had the pleasure of visiting Prime 16 for an out standing burger. Prime 16 offers a great selection of burgers and local craft beers. I have the traditional American burger, my friend had the lamb burger. Both were excellent. The location appeared to be very popular with the Yale students, I suggest getting... More

We ate lunch after the half marathon and were very pleased with food and service! Great burgers, interesting beers and super deviled eggs!

We have visited both the New Haven and Orange locations multiple times. We are partial to the bar/vibe at the smaller one in New Haven, but it can definitely get crowded quick. The burgers are all fantastic (favorites include the Cowboy, the Smoker, the Cajun Patty Melt), and the beer list always has something for everyone. Sweet potato fries are... More

This place sells the best burgers in New Haven, and they have the most diverse selection of craft beers in town. Something to improve: service could be friendlier and acoustics: the place gets really crowded during happy hour and the noise in the bar area is is almost unbearable.

Went here based on Trip Advisor reviews, and was fully satisfied. I honestly could not decide which burger to order. My selection was pretty good. No complaints at all, and better than most, for sure. The truffle fries were amazing. My wife's tuna po boy and daughter's grilled cheese sandwich were a tad less than hoped for, however. Apparently we... More

I haven't been here in at least a year. Superb food, excellent service. Try the "pickle back" burger-it is excellent. The beer menu is extensive and somewhat confusing. Expect to ask. They're happy to provide suggestions. I need to go here more often.

3 vegetarians had a great lunch. Your bill can add up if you go crazy with toppings but the quality was spot on. There is a kids menu as well.
