Service good. Burgers good. Fries too soggy/oily. Decent beer selection. Think upscale fast food. Bar seating with separate dining area. 2 tv's in bar area. Very casual. Noisy - some loud children.

Used to be one of my favorites, but service and quality just aren't what they used to be. Not really worth the trip, just for a burger. If they go back to the quality and service level they used to have, then would love to return.

Yes, this is a big chain town, but the praise is real. Burgers looked great. Everyone at my table loved them. I has balsamic salmon and spinach. Excellent.

Great selection of burgers and beer plus a lot more. The onion rings are massive and hand breaded with panko for an extra crunch. Great sauce served with them as well. Our burgers were great and came with a huge pile of fresh cut fries. Our server even brought malt vinegar without my asking! Although the restaurant is in the... More

This is our second time coming here. The food is worth the visit! Very pricey, service... Eghhh, just okay. Cupcakes are a must too! The fried pickles and the meatballs in plum sauce are the stuff of food legend! The place is clean and the portions are on point! Did I mention that the burgers (especially the 55 burger) are...

Best burgers anywhere around! I love all the different combos they offer on their burgers too! Hamburger fresh ground by our local butcher. The fish and chips has become my new favorite since I became vegetarian. The sweet potato fries are a must try!

We stopped here on way home (PA) from Lewes for lunch. Restaurant 55 opened at noon on Saturday and we arrived a few minutes early and there was already a line to get in. When I was a kid growing up in the northern suburbs of Chicago, the best hamburger restaurant by far was Hackney's. Restaurant 55 is as good... More

Good food, a lot of craft brewed beers to offer but very noisy and seated on top of each other. Not open on Mondays which is a downfall
