Great burgers and good beer selection. Salad was a little disappointing but the Walleye Tacos were great.

I've had some good burgers before, but this was excellent. I had the B square, with prosciutto, bacon and blue cheese. My husband had the Tony & the Kids each has the classic cheeseburger. They were all excellent and cooked perfectly! The side salads were good. The fries were great and the Mac and cheese delicious as well. We even... More

Truly the best burger I've ever had in my sixty years. There are lots of choices of burgers and sides, even having a choice of all beef or beef/pork meat. There are other items on the menu as well, but we totally recommend the burgers. The wait staff were really good at their job and made the bar fun to... More

For a great burger or a good supper and drink, definitely worth the stop! The Asian rolls are fabulous!

While we have been here a few times we have never had such a negative experience. We were patient when we found a fly in our water and dirty silverware but when we found a hair in our meal we were disgusted. A reputable place would have offered to make some type of gesture to remedy poor hygiene and cleanliness-... More

I raise beef and generally don't order burgers because the quality just doesn't compare to our own. Except for 209. Excellent food drinks atmosphere. Will definitely be back.

My husband, son, daughter-in-law, I and our two young grandsons ate a late lunch here on Thursday 7/14/16 - - shortly after 2:00 p.m. There were at least five other tables occupied with at least four people at each table. Everyone was lingering over their meals and enjoying the many big screen TVs, pleasant atmosphere and enjoyable camaraderie that permeates... More

Probably one of the best burgers I've eaten anywhere, in more than 50 years of burger eating. Family had other entrees, which they also enjoyed. But I'd stay with almost everyone here who have raved about the burgers. I had the "B - squared" burger. Indescribably delicious. Good service, too!
