Stopped here on the way to Rehoboth based on a trip advisor review. Nothing fancy but perfect lunch, get the burger it was awesome. Im not a beer person but they had a good list. Not far off the highway so easy stop on the way.

The food is always very good and i love how they frequently change the beers on tap. The sweet potatoe fries and advocado burger are my personal favorites. It is a very casual, laid back environment!

Great tasting burgers!!!! Plus a good selection of other foods. Our burgers were done to perfection and tasted great. The Restaurant 55 burger is just a plain burger that you add items in order to create your own burger. We saw another person who had ordered the fish and chips that looked pretty darn good. Will have to go back... More

A group of 8 of us came here on a Saturday night. They don't take reservations so we wound up having to wait a while for a table. We had a drink from the bar and the wait actually went by pretty fast (they had quoted us something like 45 minute wait, but I think some people got tired of... More

Amazing burgers and a wide variety of beers to choose from! It gets busy on the weekends but the wait isn't typically too long.

The restaurant was very busy on a Thursday evening but we were seated within about 15 or 20 minutes. The service was excellent. We ordered burgers and they were very good. We also took home cupcakes and they were... More

Interesting décor; tables nicely spaced; good bar; homemade baked goods especially featuring their cupcakes. At lunch the menu is varied and they always offer specials of the day. Lunch tends to be less crowded and less noisy. They offer a wide variety of sandwiches... More

The burgers area amazing! The beer selection matches. The burgers are generally locally sourced so they may be out of some ingredients. Definitely could eat here a lot.
