It is so very hard to find a good burger place these days, this is one of the best I have tried. MW chicken burger - aaaaamazing. Along with a cherry coke float (serious sugar high afterwards, but oh so worth it) and a side of fries to share we basically rolled out of there.

Fast and friendly service & it was great to catch up with friends there. Although I am not sure if you can make a reservation at the burger joint downstairs, we were walking along and happened to score a free table for lunch, the place was packed.

Definitely will be visiting again next time we are in Melbourne.

Ate here last week with a group of business colleagues.
The food was very good, but in spite of the fact it was a Monday night and not particularly busy, the service was quote slow - it took quite a while to have our orders taken then for the food to be served.

This review relates to the downstairs Burger Bar...

Having thought that Grilled had nailed this market , i wanted to give these guys a try and in some ways they beat Grilled!

The menu is quite limited but in some ways that is not a negative and it is meant to be a burger bar.

I chose the K.I.S.S burger ....

K.I.S.S: Cheddar, Onions, Pickles, Ketchup, Mustard, Damper Roll - $13 + Fries $5

I am not clear if this is a 'healthy' burger as Grilled have conditioned people to think burgers are healthy however the really rare / pink meat suited my tastes. The juiciness and bun were also a plus. (the bun is not as healthy as the wholemeal one at Grilled for sure, however you can 'upgrade' for a $1 to a wholemeal or gluten free bun)

The American 'yellow' mustard and ketchup were perfect and the chips were standard as opposed to Grilled's 'herb' chips which are not my preference.

I would give this burger a 9 outta 10!!!

... and if Burgers are you thing , this is a must have in Melbourne.

Value wise , it is quite expensive but based on the location expected and I left happy!

The beer choice is pretty good swell and it is served in pint Glasses or mini pots which is cool.

Would I go again....

Yes! Thumbs up!

We ate at the MerryWell Upstairs Restaurant. Everything on the menu seemed to be extremely expensive at first glance. We ordered our $30 burgers and then had to order our $11 sides of chips! The waitresses didn't understand the menu and weren't interested in answering our questions. These meals were nice but not worth the money.
