We just drove in from Brookfield and we're starving. Found Haywire and looked it out on Trip Advisor. Glad I listened to the reviews. Really delicious and tasty hamburgers.

Stopped in here twice for dinner early in the summer, both times it was after the busiest dinner hours and I sat at a table in the bar area. The menu is varied and on both occasions the food was very good, the burgers are delicious and the sides well prepared. However, on both visits although the restaurant was not... More

This place is pretty consistent. Food looks and smells good. I had a chopped salad and a friend had the same. The bill came to $34.03! For shredded lettuce with chicken and two waters, that's a bit expensive. The gentlemen in the booth were speaking loudly and for some reason, there were two or three flies and a few gnats... More

We were sent to this popular place by our hosts at Harry's Marina. We loved everything, especially the imaginative burger varieties. LOVED our server, and the service was excellent. The appetizers (we had fried pickles) and sides (sweet potato fries, onion rings) are delicious and generously proportioned.

Came in for a quick but, never had a bad meal here and the service has been excellent each time. The burgers are big and thick with many choices of toppings. Nice bar area and also an area for families with children.

I am not usually a burger eater, but Haywire make the best burgers on the Shoreline, bar none in my opinion! They have so many different varieties, or are able to make whatever you want. Always busy and can understand why! If you haven't been, go!

The food was very delicious and the staff was very friendly. The food came out very quickly. I highly recommend the Spinach artichoke dip. The Haywire is a perfect little Place for families. We sat outside and enjoyed the gorgeous weather and atmosphere.

All the fried stuff was ok but my wife thought the exterior was not to clean. As this is the only food outlet for miles on the beach I think they have let the standard fall away.
